Why Do You Have To Do A ‘Daily Challenge’?
Posted by Shofar/Liz
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)!
