31 Days of January - I Made it Through the Rain

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Bluegrass Homes & Farms Realty, Agent Know How

This will be my last daily post for quite a while! I have enjoyed this 31 Days of January challenge, though. It has brought some good things and bad. I always like to leave the best for last, so here are the bad things:

  • My laptop went haywire and white screened, so I had to do without it for two weeks, forcing to post either before work hours or on my mobile.
  • Once I had to write my blog post ten different times before it submitted through my mobile.
  • I struggled with topics, not being licensed. (Technology is always a safe subject!)

Every cloud has a silver lining:

  • I won 2nd place in the Newbies Contest winning 1,200 additional points.
  • I was Featured Member of the Day yesterday due to the additional exposure, no doubt.
  • I learned how to blog and some new things about blogging - how to give a good title to a blog post, make it short and sweet, add images, tags and categories. 
  • Most important of all, I learned discipline.

I am well on my way to my goal to be #5 in Louisville before the end of the year. It's possible I will be #6 by tomorrow, so perhaps my goal was too low. I'm going to re-announce my new goal to be #3 by the end of the year.

Thanks everyone for reading and sticking with me, and I will be around a lot more often! :) -Lynda

I was happy to make it through too, Lynda. I had problems some days, some days I was running out of day before I could get the blog in, but it was great discipline.

Well guess what I missed a deadline and didn't get the blog in.  So I envy you making it to the end of the challenge.  I am sure there will be a challenge in February which I will enter.  I admire your determination.  I am lost without my computer.

Kate, it was a great challenge for discipline.

Pat, I know you read most of mine and commented, and I really appreciate that. :) Thanks for the compliment.

I’m hoping I can stay persistent by blogging on a daily basis because it sure made the weekends easier for me.

Jim, how do you mean, do you blog only during the weekdays, or do you mean it makes it easier to stay work-focused on the weekend, or something else?

Thanks, Timothy!
