It's Over

This month I “ran” a word marathon, well this is my last lap [insert Rocky music here]! My victory lap, if you will. Now actual runners might think that’s a pretty wimpy marathon, but I dug deep, I scraped out the bottom of my brain, I begged words from strangers, I scrapped the bottom of my brain again, I played the baby card!

I went the distance.

I finished.

30 blog posts = 30 days

I learned some things this month:

•    I did it (miracle!)
•    I don’t want to do it again

Don’t get me wrong. It was good for my character to step outside my comfort zone, to challenge myself. But I’m not sure it was good for my blog.

It’s asking a lot of people to visit a blog 2-3 times a week. Asking (mostly hoping) that they’ll stop by every day? Yeah, if I was the Pioneer Woman (I don’t think even she posts every day, though, she has people for some of it)…

Or some wise person on top of a really high mountain…

Or important…

Or not me.

But I am me. (Insert voice singing, I gotta be me here)

So, going forward Perilous Pauline will not be blogging every day. Okay, you don’t have to clap that loud. All right, I’m clapping with you. And I might be doing a modest jig. Yes, Perilous P is resting on her empty word well and digesting the Thanksgiving feast. (I’m old. It takes a few days.)

What you can expect from me going forward is: a Life Happens post on Monday, a Why I Wrote on Wednesday (with some guest authors, I hope!), and some crazy or quirky on Friday. Occasionally, VERY occasionally, I might post on another day if I’m bursting with news or need to wish you Happy Something. You can also count on more awesome photos from the hubs.

And yes, I take requests (as long as they aren’t every day!). So go ahead and cheer with me, ask questions, post requests (I don’t promise to stop blogging however) and if you cheer in the comments, why then you’ll be entered into my monthly drawing for an AnaBanana gift basket of yummy worth $50 this month in honor of my NaBloPoMo blogging challenge. And guess what? This is the LAST day of November! So I’ll be announcing the winner in my NEXT blog post! Comment now before it’s a new month (and the gift basket is back to $25!)

Pauline has been taking a Thanksgiving break from wreaking fictional mayhem on her characters, but she will be back at it on Monday. While you’re digesting your feat, I hope you’ll pop over and check out my books on my website. Or here on this blog. I plaster information everywhere. If you already know too much, sign up to know more about my books in the future (no, not a time machine, a newsletter).

    Congratulations!!!! … you did it! … it isn’t easy thinking these things up. I have settled into a post a week-ish – more if something catches my attention – and I’m happy with that, at least for the time being. Who knows what tomorrow may bring!

      Thanks, Jordan! Did you see that your book got a nice shout out on Dear Author today? In the daily deals? Congrats!

I am sorry to say I only just discovered your blog-via Inion N. Mathair…but I look forward to reading back through them to experience what that must of been like to blog everyday! Staggering :p & I look forward to your future post! 😀

    First off: We bow to the queen of Blog, Ms. Pauline. Hip, hip, hurray! There’s our cheer & that baby is sincere! That is some serious marathon effort friend. We’ve taken off from our blog, recently to catch up on our read & reviews for fellow authors. It’s because of this, we’ve been sharing our fellow authors blogs rather than writing our own. So clearly you can see our admiration is genuine. Whether your traffic was heavy or not; whether your posts varied in degree’s of interest or not; whether you we’re exhausted by the end of the month or not. What you did was a truly challenging literary feat to be sure. So once again, we applaud you for not only stepping out of your comfort zone my dear. But for doing the macarena outta that bad boy!!

      LOLOL! Thank you so very much! I will admit to being VERY relieved that the month is done.LOL And congrats to you for working on your goals and sharing posts! Very cool idea! I’m very much hoping to get some reading done in December. I love reading Christmas anthologies and watching Christmas movies. One of my daughter’s gave me a Christmas anthology of mysteries that I’m longing to dive into. It should also stock on the word well. LOL Happy Thanksgiving to you both and again, thank you!
