30 . The Blogtember Challenge

A farewell coffee date. Take some time to breath, sip a warm drink, and share with your new blogging buddies. If you'd like a prompt: how did the Blog-tember challenge go for you? Any surprises? What was your favorite prompt, or what would you like to see included next time?

The main objective of the challenge was to get ourselves writing, more regularly, hopefully daily.. I wouldn't deny there are days that felt like I had a homework to hand in, but I guess that's the feeling we get when we got lazy.. But it was too much fun to leave myself behind.. I wanted to know what the others have to say and also what they would say about mine..


Being a group of people doing the same thing at the same time together, I would expect to know a lot of new friends but sadly I didn't.. I only wrote & read but didn't really socialize.. But fortunate for me, I still had a few regular comments.. They may be less than a handful, but I guess it'd be easier to maintain the relationship this way..
And to be honest, it's almost impossible to keep up with all the updates in the reading list I've got from this challenge, and still living a life offline. Especially on Willie's off-days.. He'd spent quite a few hours watching my back as I blog, I can't bear to let him spend the rest watching me reading others.. and I got to live a life to have something to blog!

But this challenge definitely got my engine starting.. I may do weekly posting to be more functional and appropriate, but who knows.. I'd already signing myself up for another challenge, this daily thing may go on forever...

Here's the list of the Blogtember Challenge once again..

My favourite prompt is, no doubt, the Wish List on the 27th.. I already felt like shopping while putting the post together!
Another I really enjoyed is the Vlog on 17th.. It was a really long process to put it together, probably longer than an actual video of just me talking, but then, I wouldn't know..
I enjoyed talking about my marriage as well, on the 13th, I always do.. anything to do with Willie and sharing bits and pieces of our relationship.. He actually thought we should do this sharing together.. ^^

Wow.. It's finally the last day, and looking back, a month full of posting..!
I HAD FUN!
