Chebk’s out with the flu, so we’re a little behind on the last week of our Ultimate Blogging Challenge. Apologies! A brief update before we resume our regularly scheduled blogging:
- Our OKPotato page raised a grand total of $455 for the National Book Foundation via purchases at Chebk’s TheCraftingMuse Etsy page. You can still buy awesome beanies, cozies, and crochet dolls there, but our readathon donation page is now closed.
- Our writing group has recently expanded (with even more watercolor flash fiction), which is very exciting! We will be having guest bloggers from our writing group very soon…with some persuasion/begging/bribery.
We’ll soon be ending the January Ultimate Blogging Challenge, which is both sad and relieving (you can guess which emotion ultimately wins out). I thought it was a good way to begin 2015, getting both of us writing daily and generating new material. It will be nice to have a little more time for our personal writing projects though.
The biggest thing I’ve learned from this challenge? PLANNING. Chebk is great at that, but this was the first time she really succeeded in getting me to sit down and plan out our blog topics all in one go. It was much easier to stick to deadlines this way and I’m already badgering Chebk to meet up so we can start planning out February.
We still have a few more days left, though, so stick with us for the announcement of our giveaway winners (IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO ENTER: win a copy of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and/or Ender’s Shadow) and our big send-off to the end of this crazy month.
