Blogging Streak? Blogging Tear?

My friend Maggie threw down the gauntlet and has posed a daily blogging challenge to get herself (and the rest of us) out of a writing rut, so I guess I'm in. Funnily enough, I do not know when this daily habit is to begin or if there is to be an end date, but Joe is working late tonight so I am starting NOW. I would be super proud if I could keep it up for a month, but we'll see. It is almost cake month around here, after all. That usually makes for one good-busy but tired mama.

My other friend Susan pointed out that blogs in general seem to be in decline, like fewer people are keeping up with writing them or reading them. I think she's correct, but my hope is that this will just mean quality over quantity. I don't know. I'm kind of bad about keeping up with mine, but the desire is still there, it's just hard to find the free time.

Anyway, join in on this little blogging tear if you'd like.  Or cheer me on by leaving comments.  I'm not too proud to admit that they give me a little boost, like spectators cheering and holding up posters along a race route. 

I hope chronology doesn't count in this little challenge, because my posts are likely to be all over the board, bouncing between current day happenings and old posts that I never finished (or started) but always wanted to.  So bear with me, and don't be afraid to wish my kids a happy 2nd, 4th, and 6th birthday in the comments even though they're all about to turn 3, 5 and 7.

How many times have I announced this supposed blogging streak and then NOT done it?  I am becoming the girl who cried wolf.  I hope this time is different.
