Hi there. I wanted to take a moment and talk about my activity on this blog. You may have noticed that I’ve posted something new each day since December began (or not…we are only 5 days into the month). I will never commit to posting daily, but I thought I should take a moment and explain what I would like to accomplish on the blog this month.
I haven’t spent as much time blogging since October hit as I had over the summer. While I’m still committed to the blog, there is just a malaise that has taken over me when it comes to blogging and writing and all that fun stuff. Maybe it is the shorter days, the realization that another year is going by or the fact that I have many other things I’m working on outside of blogging which had taken priority for my time. I just haven’t been as motivated to blog.
Why haven’t I done more writing these days? Um, my dog ate my pencil?
I came *this close* to going on hiatus with NMNPHX for the month of December. I even had a post drawn up and scheduled, promising to return sometime early 2013.
But after some thought, I decided I would be missing out on many creative opportunities for blog posts by bypassing the end of the year. Instead, I decided to find my motivation and see if I can’t make December one of the best months on NMNPHX. If anyone is wishing 2012 would hurry up and end, it’s me. Instead of ignoring the passage of the year, I’d should celebrate it. I should celebrate 2012 is going away forever, and I’d like to include all my blog friends in on that celebration.
For the month of December, I will try my best to post daily. I’m working on new posts (including more Photo Fridays, another Mad Libs, and at least one more Commuter Chronicles post) as we speak. I’d also like to do a “best of” post and just have fun letting go of 2012.
Yes! 2013 is almost here!
I’d also like to take an informal poll among other bloggers. Are you looking forward to saying goodbye to 2012? Are you doing anything special on your blog to acknowledge the holidays? Also, should a blog showcasing blinding rays of sunshine activate the special snow feature to make it look like it is snowing on the blog?
Do I need to add some of this to the blog?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts. Until tomorrow,
