Why Do You Have To Do A ‘Daily Challenge’?

MY HUSBAND asked, “Why do you have to do a ‘Daily Challenge’?

Me:  “BECAUSE.  Because I want to see if I can do it, write a post a day, every day until Friday.”

Him:  “What are you planning to write about?”

Me:  “ANYTHING.  That’s the challenge, you know, ANYTHING, any subject and something different from how I would normally write.”

Him:  “So what do you have in mind?”

Me:  “THAT IS THE CHALLENGE!  There’s no theme this week so I can choose my own topics.  WHAT am I going to write about?!”

When I was teaching, my students marveled that I had so many stories to tell them.   So I’m sure I won’t be at a loss for one post a day, taking a day at a time!   Well, WHAT shall I write on?

Him:  (Husband is thinking and sometimes saying out loud:  “When are we having breakfast?”   “What’s for lunch today?”  ” Aren’t you taking too long on ONE POST?!”   “Oh well,  that will keep her out of my hair for a while, and I can do my computer work uninterrupted!”)

DAILY CHALLENGE LOG

DAY 1  I am thinking of doing the WordPress Weekly Writing Challenge and plan to share Big Island photos in ‘Where Is A Good Place for Meditation?’  I’ll post 5 photos and write about Psalm 5 and prayer and meditation in a SHORT PHOTO STORY.

DAY 2  My  Short Story of yesterday was a challenge as I wrote ‘A Blog A Day? Why Not?!   That was because I saw that ‘RANTING’ was in the list of suggestions.  Through my frustrations I found at least 3 ways to post photos; the last was the easiest by far!  I discovered a simple way to bypass MEDIA and  the Media Library.

DAY 3  The idea for this blog, ‘Playing Guitar the Easy Way and Guitar Photos’ came from the number of views I continue to have on ‘My Takamine Guitars’ (June 7, 2012).  I thought there must be bloggers who have the same love as me for gospel music, are guitarists, guitar music aficionados/guitar collectors, Christians, or all of the above, thus the follow up blog.  And posting the 2 photos was a breeze!

DAY 4  That brings me up to TODAY’S BLOG POST!  And I already have 3 post topics brewing on the boiler!  I may make it after all!   Only thing is, I don’t really know how this Daily Challenge works.  What day is the last day of this ‘post a day’  Is it on my time or Greenwich time?  I don’t even know if I’m in the Daily Challenge since I haven’t the foggiest idea how to ‘grab a badge’!   Remember, I just figured out how to post photos!  And I have yet to learn how to link better because at this editing, one link still won’t work!  Can you find it?!

Well,  I should get off the computer and fix lunch before I hear something GROWL– (my husband’s stomach)!

  1. I’ve been meaning to do this, but to no end. I’m getting behind even. I’m down to 2 posts a week, And haven’t really been visiting other blogs as well. Awful of me, I know. But I do try to catch up. One day, I’ll be up for this challenge…or should I say, one week. 😀

    Good luck, and keep up the good work. 😀

  2. Rommel, you have read this post while I am still trying to get the WordPress links to work!
    Wish you were here to help this senior person get today’s post right!

  3. Hey you did it! I’m not doing the challenge because well….just not. Too many irons in the fire! ~Jen You are getting your links in your post!! Way to go!!

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Jen! Most of the links were activated, but I missed a couple! One reason I took up the challenge is because in the process of blogging I can hone in on some of the basic technical skills I need to learn. It’s not easy for someone not computer savvy!
