I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has followed along with me over the past 31 days! It’s been a wonderful journey, and I’ve really enjoyed it. It has been so good for me to reflect on the last three years over this past month. It has also provided a place on our blog to summarize approximately 300 caringbridge posts into a shorter version of Josiah’s story.
I still have other ideas jotted down and areas I was wanting to explore within the series, but just because 31 days is over doesn’t mean I can’t write and continue posting. I can tell you I won’t be posting on a daily basis, which means I’ll get more sleep!
I’m planning to take the month of November off, and there will be medical updates coming in December after Josiah’s MRI and other doctor appointments that month. And I’m sure I’ll be sharing about Josiah’s birthday coming up next week as well! At least some pictures! (I better get to planning said party…) Other than that, I’m not sure what January will bring. I’ve considered challenging myself to have a post once a week, picking a consistent day to post. When I started the blog, I didn’t plan to be consistent in my posts, but I see the benefit of pushing myself to continue to share. I’ll be exploring some ideas in November and December!
You may even see some Friday posts, called Five Minute Friday. This is a free-write, where bloggers are given a word prompt and then write a post in five minutes, with “no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.” I think it’ll be a fun way to explore new topics and keep consistently writing!
A second component of Write31Days is that later in November, we are given information on how to turn a 31 day series into an E-book. This sounds like an interesting option to me, and I’m looking forward to hearing more in the weeks to come. Maybe my other jotted down ideas will be released in an E-book. How cool is that?
Again, thank you to everyone for your love and support! I think I’m going to miss this a bit as I’m feeling a little sad to be concluding the series. My family will be glad to have me back; I’m not sure how other bloggers do this every day! It’s been fun!
