or not – maybe? How will PostADay2011 play out?

P writing blue

When I started this blog it had a different purpose, but joining the WordPress PostADay2011 Challenge and meeting some great fellow bloggers, I’m not sure if I can keep it on the same track. I don’t want to write about annoying things everyday. This is what’s bugging me today!

That’s the reason I have the “or not” posts. I had to add something to the title of the post otherwise people would think I found it annoying. Now I think it confuses them and they come to see what it’s all about.

But I don’t want to talk about what’s bugging me today.

What I want to do is share, what I think is some good information with my fellow bloggers in the postaday2011/postaweek2011 challenge. It’s been sitting in my Google Reader since the day this challenge started and I finally had a chance to read some of it today.

It’s a Best of 2010 list and there are 21 postings on it. I checked some of them out and the posting themselves have links to other postings with good information so I thought I would post it for everyone.

I especially wanted to share it with one of my readers, My English Thoughts, who is blogging in English daily when French is her first language. Now here is someone who has really taken on the challenge!

Here is one posting from the list I do want to share with you today.

    Those CopyBlogger links are great Rosemary – I’ve read two of them and have to check the other ones out, but the information is invaluable to becoming a better blogger.
    Thank you for listing them here.

    I am slowly but surely learning about this blogging business. I do like your rants and raves about certain things, it helps me learn. My intentions for today included catching up, as I have felt so poorly lately. However, I still feel week, and want to nap. My many thanks for your commenting, and subscribing to my post, it helps me to remember that I can give a laugh somewhere, it doesn’t have to be a belly rollin’ kind. Thanks

      Thanks JaxieCat and you’re very welcome. You’re not alone here. You should meet up with Granny1947 for a good belly rollin’ laugh. She’s here too! 🙂
