Not long ago, but long enough ago to make it nearly awkward to bring up, I was in a discussion with one of my best friends ever about blogging, she mentioned that mine, which was once nice and good, had turned into such an afterthought that she rarely heard from it anymore. As conversations do, this one progressed… and the next thing I knew we were in a BLOGGING CHALLENGE!!! I’m not sure who suggested it (me) but the terms are thus:
The first one who misses a day of posting, loses. Furthermore, we did not discuss the possible punishment or consequences, but they must be something extremely dire, because from that time on neither of us have missed a day, though she tried to yesterday.
A little about her blog: IT IS INCREDIBLE! She doesn’t try at all and comes up with these crafty creations or cooking sensations that make reading her daily extravagances a true pleasure. So of the two of us I think I win this competition as she has to muddle through my occasional “I had a dream” post, while I get to read about her ingenious pancake art. or extreme service project benevolence.
If you have a blog, and think you can keep up with the challenge you should post it here… or send me a note in the contact me part of the blog (I put a contact me page up!) Again, I don’t know what the consequences are of missing a day, but they must be very dire.
(If I get a couple more people to agree to it I’ll make a special blogging challenge page here for it. Then someone crafty might even put together a graphic button for the blogs.)
