I posted my last post just as the clock struck twelve, so alas, it didn’t go for yesterday’s post but for today’s instead. But that’s okay, I’m going to post when I think of something to write so that I can hopefully catch up.
I’ve already begun several drafts of posts in the few days time when I didn’t post anything, or not much of anything at all. Possibly had I posted the little that I had written, I would have gotten a second wind and written even more than I expected.
Even now, I certainly didn’t expect to begin a new post right after publishing the last one, but I updated my word counts in the official nano site and thought I’d take a look at my email there. I was surprised because I received an email from the nano originator himself, Chris Baty.
To quote one of his paragraphs, he said: “You can help build that path faster by hitting your writing goals for the next three days. This may sound like a small thing, but little, consistent writing achievements open the door to huge writing breakthroughs”.
Not only did that inspire me so that I can expect to finish nano, but it also inspired me to realize that I can be more consistent in posting in my various blogs more often. Maybe all I will need to do is endeavor to hit my writing goals for three days of each and every week, that should allow me to have the necessary time to come up with something for each blog at least weekly. That would be very sweet.
I thought I’d mention that I’d like to thank all my new followers for this blog along with the likers and those that do make a comment or two on any of my blogs.
I ran into a problem this morning when checking out a blog of someone that is now following this one. The blog has awesome photography on it and the viewer can also purchase prints if they’d like. The problem I had was being able to make any comments or liking any post that I checked out.
I have found that I’m not able to do any of that using my Chrome browser, so I generally have the firefox one open for that reason. I used the firefox browser to again try to like a post or two and make a comment and suggestion, but it seemed that the problem may have been word press related this time. Whatever it was, I wasn’t able to do any communication with the site owner on their site. I even tried to follow their blog using my email address and that didn’t work either.
I tried to use pinterest to link their blog to my account for others to oooh and aaah over the photography, and pinterest even put a stop to the link. This particular person has thousands of followers, so it doesn’t make sense to me. Maybe I’ll try internet explorer later on, but soon I’ll be getting ready for work.
It’ll be busy as the days progress toward Thanksgiving. We are always short-handed. A few cashiers are being trained right now, hopefully they will be able to start before Thanksgiving to help lighten the load. My daughter even applied recently. I don’t know whether she’ll be a cashier or help in the clothing department. Whichever it is, it will be a benefit to me as I’ll be able to take her off my insurance as she’ll be able to get her own. I’m looking forward to that.
When I began this nano blog, I thought after nano was completed that I would save this blog for each succeeding nano, from year to year and not use it in between. But, now that I’m starting to have a bit of a following, I may not do actual posts here in the interim, but I can use the space to link posts I make on my other blogs in case anyone would like to read any of them.
I’m going to finish this post and maybe do another post later tonight to try to finish my word count for the day as I’m just under half way there. On the official nano site, they would consider this extra for what I put there in the wee hours of the morning because I wasn’t able to change my count for yesterday until the clock had already struck twelve.
Had I realized I was that close in time, I would have moved a little faster to try to get it posted before today began, but I wasn’t paying that much attention.
I would really like to take time out from writing, and there isn’t really any time to take since I’m behind already, but I would like to get better at getting things done around the house.
Later fellow bloggers.
