Blogtoberfest 2012

I did it – I posted a blog every day in the month of October, missing only one day – and I bought a car that weekend.

I am not going to lie – I’m glad it is over.  But, I did learn a few things.

1.  I need to take more photos. I did purchase a Smartphone during October, and that helped. But, I need more photos to illustrate my blog by making it more personal.

2. Sticking to a plan helps. Having a series – The A to Z’s of Art really helped keep me on track.

3. There are other things to write about other than my art and what I’m doing.  I researched artists.  And I learned some things that surprised me (see Q for Quills- I had no idea!).

4. Keep a journal – catch those ideas as they fly by!

5.  If I do it again, I will highlight fellow artists – which takes a little pre-planning!

So – I spent a day with every letter, and I participated in a Blog Circle where 12 women around the globe wrote about Courage.   Here are some of the links to past blogs here.

    Congratulations Vickie… what a wonderful achievement…. and thanks so much for sharing your learnings for next time. I’m going to book mark this as it makes a huge amount of sense. I keep thinking that I will need more photos for when I get my blog up and running! 🙂 x

    I’m so impressed and inspired by your paintings and your writing. The dress code series is stunning ( i’ll go back and view the other series too 🙂 Your diligence in writing a post each day is such a big commitment, I read a few and could feel your enthusiasm even when you were tired, having car shopped!

    I hope you find some time for some well deserved R & R soon.

    I’m so glad to be flying beside you 🙂
