The Ultimate Blogging Challenge

Ultimate Blog Challenge

Well I know I’ve been neglecting my blog and I have been feeling guilty about it. So I have decided to do something about it by signing up for the ultimate blogging challenge in July which means I HAVE to do thirty blog posts this month or else!

I include the link to the Ultimate Blogging Challenge here. That’s just in case you won’t to know more or to sign up for it yourself.

I’m sat here watching the tennis as well as typing, (I’m a woman, I can multitask!) and I think the best blogs should be more like a tennis match or a good conversation in that it shouldn’t be completely one sided with just me writing but I enjoy getting comments and feedback on my blog so don’t be shy about having your say.

My goal when I started my blog was to have one hundred subscribers and I have reached that so I’m very happy. Obviously I would love to have a world famous huge money making blog but I think that’s unlikely, at least in the near future but I do enjoy blogging and I very much intend to keep doing it!


Stepping out and staying in!

One of my goals for this year/round of ROW is to put my work out there a bit more and I just thought of a way I could do that (with a little help from my friends!)

Someone just asked if I’d like to guest post on her blog and I said yes.  I love guest posting because, although it makes me nervous, I’m always immensely flattered to be asked.  So I thought to myself, maybe I could have a bit of a party blog this year?

I’ll come to yours and you can come to mine.  I’m happy to guest post with anyone one who’s fool enough…I mean, kind enough to have me and I would love lots of other lovely writers to guest post for me!

When it comes to guest posts I’m not fussy about topics because my blog is all about my crazy…I mean varied life so any sort of thing is good.  I’m interested in loads of different stuff but I prefer upbeat blog posts.  Let me know if anyone of you wonderful people out there in cyberspace would be willing to hang out on my little blog for a while.  See you soon!  (I hope!)

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.


Thank you to everyone who read my blog and to everyone who commented.  I sincerely appreciate each and everyone of you!  Have a great 2013!
