#BLOGLIKECRAZY 30:THE CONCLUSION (WRITTEN WHILE SMILING)...

...
back in 2015 when I first read about Javacia H. Broswer's #BLOGLIKECRAZY November Challenge, I thought, "that's IMPOSSIBLE"!  But I took her challenge anyway and succeeded.  In 2016 I decided to join in again, and again I made it to completion.  This year, I thought "Nope. Not this year"; but as you can see here I am again - at the end of it - which just what I had envisioned.  Was it easy - not really, but with planning highly possible.


Why I #BLOGLIKE CRAZY?
  • I like a good challenge.
  • I like to write, and realize that unless I make writing a regular habit I will lose my desire and ability to write well.  Unless I exercise my writing muscle it will lose it's tone and it's flexibility.
  • I love my blog; and like anything else that you love, you need to feed it with consistency.
  • It helps me to organize my thoughts, and it forces me to be more creative.
  • It helps me connect with my community.
It's been an exciting month of blogging!  I want to thank ALL who stuck it out with me by reading and/or commenting on my 30 posts.  I want to give a big shout out to the 6 guest bloggers who helped round out my month with their "Why I Sew & Blog About It" posts. A special "Thank You" to Javacia for challenging me and many other writers/bloggers to commit to doing what we love to do - WRITE.  If you are interested in finding out more about how she does this - pop over to SeeJaneWritebham.com - there is always something there that will challenge to step out of your comfort zone...

  4. YEA! CONGRATULATIONS Ms. Faye! Yes, you did it again for another year and did it well too! I challenged myself to read each and every one of your posts during the month of November. I have to go back because I think I missed the last few while out of town for the holidays! I promise to get them read before the end of the night! Great job my friend!

  9. Congratulations. I did enjoy your month of posts. How right you are about needing the discipline to keep on writing. I constantly fall short, and then it's so difficult to start up again. You are an inspiration.
