Keeping Up

Two weeks into the Challenge, and I'm actually keeping up.  I'm so proud of myself.  I can actually see myself finishing something I started for the first time in I don't know how long.

I'm trying to do this right by visiting other sites from the linky list.  I'm also trying to keep up with the sites I follow.  I work full time with a 1 1/2 hr round trip commute.  When I get home I have lot to do before I can sit down and focus on this thing.  Plus I need 8 hours of sleep a night or things get ugly.  After the first 2 days, I decided to set a schedule.  And after 2 days of that the schedule went out the window.

(part of my problem is that the blogs I follow only show on by reading list every other day, and they only show under my profile every 2 days.  Anybody else have this problem?  I have tried contacting Blogger about it, but I'm just going in circles there.)

I try to comment on all the sites I visit, but sometimes I skip that part, because I don't have anything interesting to say.  So, if you don't see anything from me every few days, just remember: it's not you, it's me.
That said, I'd like to point out some of my favorite bloggers so far. If you're not on the list remember:
I kid! I kid!

Adjective, Not a Noun by K.S. Lewis.  Her theme is excerpts from her work in progress.  I don't understand what the plot of the book is, but the bits and pieces she lets us see are very interesting.

Absconditus Creations.  I mentioned this site in my Versatile Blogger Award post.  I still like to visit on a nearly daily basis.  The theme for the A to Z Challenge are drawings with little poems describing them. 

Just Ermie.You should check out Ermie's plans for world domination.

mirabile dictu.  On this blog Cherstin Holtzman is detailing the process of handwriting her first novel.  I just found her a few days ago, but I love the way she writes in her blog posts.


  1. Aw, thanks for including me on your list.
    I have to agree, when I get busy with work stuff, I start panicking about visiting and commenting on all the blogs on my growing list! I generally hop around to new ones every day, and then go back during quiet moments to comment on past posts from the blogs I consider my "regulars."
    So far so good, we're both keeping up with the challenge! ^_^

  2. I'm having trouble keeping up with the commenting too. I found so many cool blogs and like you, if I don't have something interesting to say, I don't like to comment.

  3. I can relate with the time thing. I'm keeping up too, but working full-time and no computer at home, it can be a challenge! I also hop around to new ones every day, and then make sure I comment on my regular blog buddies. Good luck with the rest of the month!

  4. Glad you are keeping up! I am, just barely LOL.

  5. I can totally relate. So glad you're able to keep up. It's a difficult challenge, to say the least:)
    Just A-Zing around!

  6. :D Thanks for the mention again.

    I'm the same with commenting, only do it if I have something interesting to add!

  7. Hey, thanks mentioning me. :-)
    I actually fell behind and forgot to post yesterday, but should be back on track soon - need to catch up with everyone else first though.
