Conclusion: 28 Days of Blogging

February is ending and so is our 28 Days of Blogging challenge. This is the fourth year I participate and I still like it very much. Blogging to me is a wonderful balance to my job. As much as I love teaching, I also enjoy writing a lot and not talking to anyone in the evening. Sometimes it even sounds crazy to myself that I decide to blog daily while working so many hours. But the challenge also forces me to stop thinking about my job and focus on my free time, my hobby.

This year I have posted a total of 24 posts in February. Strictly speaking, I have not totally fulfilled the challenge. But I guess it is always good to have space for improvement, maybe next year. The hardest part this year was not coming up with ideas and writing 28 articles, but that I suffered from a bad sinus infection for about two weeks and even spent almost a week in bed. That prevented me from getting my normal job done and also from preparing more blog posts. I think it worked better during my vacation. Even though I traveled for a whole week and without my laptop, I had scheduled some posts and prepared others which I only had to add photos to for example. In total three out of the four February weeks were kind of disrupted so that I am proud to have published that many posts.

I must admit that I had very little time to read other blogs or comment there which I was a little sad about because I didn’t really support my fellow bloggers participating in the challenge. Neither did I use social media enough to make people aware of my many new posts. I know that I used to be much better in previous years. But having not blogged regularly for about 12 months shows its negative impact.

After all I am happy and proud that I handled the challenge as well as I could, esp. given the circumstances. It made me realize that I can still blog, that I still have plenty of ideas, that I still feel I have something to say or show – and that is a pretty good feeling after nine years of blogging. I only have to focus my attention on the blog again. I don’t think I’ll continue blogging six times a week this year, but I hope to make a routine of three to four posts per week. Although I have a friend visiting these next two weeks, I hope to still stick to my goal. So in March I want to tell you more about my vacation and all the amazing places we went to. I want to publish more beauty posts again because I have so many amazing beauty products that maybe feel a little neglected (although I do use them regularly). I try to cook more at home and come up with new recipes every now and then. And then there is still a piece of news that I have kept from you for a while, but, now that all my close family and friends know, it is time to publish that in a blog post very soon.
