If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may have noticed that my Sunday Slideshows have disappeared. I took Philip to the park last Sunday but I never got around to uploading the photos that I took. Last week, I went to Cub Scout Day Camp with Philip and took pictures. I didn’t get around to assembling those for a post yesterday either.
I added Sunday Slideshows as a weekly feature back in July of 2013. I posted every week until April of this year. For over one hundred weeks in a row, you could find a slideshow on my blog. Then I gave myself permission to skip a week.
Of course, after I skipped one week and it was okay to skip another. Suddenly, I lost that anchor. I miss it. I miss having a self-imposed deadline for getting something on my blog. I miss having an excuse to take the camera out and look for things I can photograph.
Today marks the 100th installment of Microblog Mondays, hosted by Mel over at Stirrup Queens. She challenged her readers to commit to posting for the next 100 Mondays. The beauty of her link up is that bloggers don’t have to write tons of words to participate. In fact, pithiness is encouraged. I’m going to accept her challenge. In addition to my Fitness Friday posts, I’m going to publish something every Monday until Mel announces that Microblog Mondays is turning 200. And then, if I’ve run out of things to write, I will stop.
