I meant to do this sooner.
But, I forgot.
Once the challenge was over, I decided to rest a couple days.
And a couple more.
Then my hands didn't feel like typing.
So, I waited a couple more days.
I saw Robyn's post and thought "Shit, I need to do that!"
So, I went to bed and laid there and when I finally got up this morning, I decided I must get it done.
I have done the challenge for a few years now.
A couple of years, I did it on both of my blogs.
I took a break from it last year and just did it on this blog this time.
One day I lost a follower and gained a different one.
I also gained a handful more.
They are just numbers, but it feels better when they go up.
When they go down, I have this feeling like "what did I do?".
I did have fun.
I found out that many people really seem to like potatoes.
Did I bounce around to as many blogs as I probably should have?
No. I will admit that.
A couple years ago, I spent so much time trying to get to everyone and leave a comment that it was just too much.
So, I decided to take it easy and do what I could on my terms.
My main goal of this challenge has always been to see if I could do it.
Finding new blogs come secondary.
Gaining followers come a distant third.
You, know, after watching the show The Following, followers kinda takes on a new meaning.
I know the talk about how we are a big community and commenting is a big part.
And that is true.
To a point.
Most of us blog for some interaction.
But, we also do it for ourselves.
