1/365: Prelude to the 365 Day Blogging Challenge

While my fellow bloggers are enjoying (and some are still contemplating) with their “2013 Year End Post”, I’m contemplating on pursuing a long-time-pending-blogging-challenge – the “365 Day Blogging Challenge”!

365 Day Challenge B

Quite a challenge huh!

Some calls it “Prompt Writing” a prompt or a habit to get you writing each and everyday of the year.  Some calls it “One Post A Day’ .  But for whatever it is called this is simply a damn good challenge for bloggers.

This has been my goal since I started blogging for myself but I’m always in doubt that I can do this so I kept on delaying.   But that’s what challenge are for right?  It will not be called a challenge unless you know you can do it easily.

So why am I taking it this time? Here are some reasons:

1. This is the perfect time to start this – New Year!

2. As I have said, I have always wanted to do this.  I was doing this when I was younger on a private journal.  There was no pressure back then so I can quit anytime.  Doing this online  - I’m sure there are lots of eyes who will be watching me succeed or fail.

3. Writing is my first and real love so I don’t want it to be taken over by the other things that I’m doing in life or may I say to be eaten out by some other things that I’m doing.

4. I am VERY disappointed with my last year’s posting on this blog.  I am guilty of not giving this space my time that it deserves.  I’m worried as to what happened to other bloggers who drifted out of blogging and then finding it difficult (and awkward) to come back to blogging because they drifted out for so long.

5. Part of this disappointment is that when Google released the latest ranking and this blog failed to get its former PR2.  Remember that I bravely took the risk of losing my PR2 when I changed this blog into a dotcom because I knew I can get it back easily as long as I maintain this site the way I did when I started this.  However due to less time spent to this blog for the last six months of 2013 I failed to get back the same PR that I have prior to the dotcom upgrade.  I swear I’ll get it back this time if not higher!

6. I don’t want to stress out myself  in writing long(er) posts.  Most online readers have short-attention-span anyway.  They tend to skip-read when your post is really long.  The daily post will help me create something short and yet interesting.  Of course there will still be long and meaty posts from time to time.

7. I know I developed a handful of loyal readers who felt disappointed every time they visit my blog and landed on the same post (sigh*) from their last visit.  Some of them even wrote to me and said that “I hope I could write more often”.  I hope I can grant your wishes this time.  Let me also express my sincerest thanks for your support.

Now the question is... “Can I do this?”.

This is extra difficult for me because I am maintaining more than one blog one of which is also a dotcom. Well I have all of you to nag me if I’m missing some days or becoming too far behind right?  So you all will be my support to achieve this challenge!

Stay with me till we reach the 365th post okay?

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Sunday Song and Photographs: She’s Always A Woman

(You are tagged!  You need to finish reading this post!) She can kill with a smile She can wound with her eyes She can ruin your faith with her casual lies And she only reveals what she wants you to see She hides like a child, But she's always a woman to me She can lead you to love She can take you or leave you She can ask for the truth But she'll never believe you And she'll take what you give her, as long as it's free Yeah, she steals like a thief But she's always a woman to me CHORUS: Oh--she takes care of herself She can wait if she wants She's ahead of her time Oh--and she never gives out And she never gives in She just changes her mind And she'll promise you more Than the Garden of Eden Then she'll carelessly cut you And laugh while you're bleedin' But she'll bring out the best And the worst you can be Blame it all on yourself Cause she's always a woman to me --Mhmm-- Bridge CHORUS: Oh--s
