the end


Well that’s it, folks! After I hit publish on this post, I will have successfully blogged every day in November! And I will never blog again.

Just kidding.

You know, for a challenge that I chose to do myself, with absolutely no one twisting my arm or anything, I whined about it quite a bit. Hopefully not too much here, but certainly to Gerald, my Mom and anyone else who would listen. But I posted every day, so I’m gonna do a little happy bloggy dance and eat the celebratory cookies I made for myself.

OK you got me. I already ate a cookie before I posted. I will not apologize for it, either!

You wanna know a secret? I have this delusion that no one reads my blog. Despite the comments, and despite my access to stats that suggest otherwise. In my little secret world, it’s just me writing on the internet to my sister because I hope that she reads what I put here.

But then, especially this month of daily posts, I hear from real live people who regularly check in to see what I’ve been saying. My besties Lisa, Cindy and Denise all get notified when I post, so they’re reading. My Mom always tells me she loves the day’s post when I talk with her on the phone, so I know she’s reading (and often commenting under her top secret alias “MOM”). My favorite local yarn shop employee, Natalie, knew about my newest pattern release, so she’s reading. I hear from lots of people that I know in person, and they’re reading! I’m always surprised but totally delighted.

And you’re here reading, right now! Thanks for that.

So do I get a pony or something for successfully completing this challenge? I really want a pony.

  1. Congrats on making it all the way through! I’ve enjoyed your postings…you’re one of the few blogs on my list that I diligently read. :) So hopefully this won’t have burned you out too much and you’ll continue posting more in the future. :)

  2. Congrats on posting daily in November! I’ve been reading (and enjoying) your posts — I can’t send you a pony, but I will send positive vibes in your direction.

  3. I’m glad you posted every day. Actually, I’m just glad you’ve started posted regularly again. I always enjoy reading your blog–well written, upbeat, funny, and adorable pictures of the kids–what’s not to like? Now that you are jumping into photography with both feet, would you ever consider doing a post about your process, your favorite lenses, tips you’ve learned along the way, etc? I’d love to read about that!
