And I did.
Mostly...... The Thanksgiving holiday got me off track a bit. Maybe it was all the stuffing I ate (?). Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I learned quite a bit from this exercise in blogging.
- Planning is crucial. I've never used an editorial calendar, but I can certainly see the advantages in one.
- A "tickler file" is a great resource. Mine is just a pad of paper sitting on my desk where I can write down an idea for a post. There is no need to be fancy or even high tech. I just need to be able to write my ideas down when I think of them to keep from forgetting them later.
- You "meet" lots of fun people with similar interests in the blogging world when you are tending to your blog consistently.
- My enjoyment of telling my ancestors' stories was reinforced. Telling their stories was why I started this blog and why I continue to blog. I can't not tell their stories.
December begins tomorrow. I'm looking forward to participating in Geneabloggers Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories. As I talk with my older relatives this Christmas season, I'm planning on talking about how they celebrated Christmas while growing up. I'll let you know what I learn.
(PS - Don't look for a post every day.)
