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)!
