In like a Lion…

1 Mar

Well, unlike the March adage “In like a lion, out like a lamb” I am going to attempt to get into March blogging month like a lion, and finish strong too!

When I first thought about blogging daily as one of the good habits I was trying to form, I didn’t put much thought into what, precisely, I would actually blog about for 31 days.  As the deadline approached though, the worry set in.  Would I be able to be funny for a whole month?!?  Would my readership tire of tiresome stories about my kids?  Would I even like blogging come April?!?  But, I realized, it’s only a month, and unlike my other habits, I don’t intend to continue this one at the same pace after March.  But I do hope to prove to myself that writing more often is doable.

So, I will apologize in advance for what I am sure are going to be some less-than-spectacular blogs.  And because I couldn’t possibly sustain a month of stories about my kids (they really aren’t that cute!) you might be forced to read about other stuff too.  Hopefully you’ll like it.

So, to encourage me this month, comment, ok?  Tell me what you like.  Tell me what you don’t like.  Tell me when I’m boring.  Ok, don’t tell me I’m boring, who wants to know that?!

And just in case you thought there would be no cute stories about the kids (what, on the first day!?!?):

Holly:  Mommy, I haven’t learned to fly yet…

Me:  No, baby, not yet… maybe tomorrow.

Holly:  Yeah!  Tomorrow!

    what if you did some kind of schedule? like monday: kids, tuesday: recipe, wednesday: devotional life, thursday: kids, friday: photos of the week… something like that? hmm. suddenly feeling like i should take my own advice more often 😛
    anyway, i’m really looking forward to this month of yours!

    Good luck!
    And I agree…setting up a schedule certainly helped to get me through November. That and writing a few posts that could be posted anytime so that if you run into a block you have something available to post just. in. case.

    The schedule is a great idea! We’ll see how it goes for now, but I will keep that on the back burner if I start struggling.
