To do or not to: BEDA 2012

I guess technically it would be BEDA 2012 Part II considering people also do it in April. I mean, I’ve always “failed” it. I define failing it for myself as:

  • just dropping it altogether
  • getting bored and having crappy, pointless blogs because of it
  • just scheduling posts

This time around I don’t really see anything wrong with me:

  • scheduling posts if I know FOR SURE I won’t be able to blog said day(s)
  • just missing a few days instead of dropping it altogether
  • using posts from my drafts instead of writing some lame topic

because at least then I’m not just dropping it altogether, and as long as I blog more than usual, I think that that should count for something, right? I wouldn’t totally be failing myself if I stuck to my second list, methinks. I mean, I’d rather have the feeling of accomplishing actually finishing it for once rather than just continuously dropping it because I grow tired of it and/or just feel like I’m lame for doing it.

I want that accomplishment for completing it, even if it may seem like a lame accomplishment/lazy way of “accomplishing” it for others. I think it’ll help me.

Who knows? Maybe it’ll boost my self-esteem a little and/or the confidence I lack in myself.

I’m still thinking about it. If I choose to do it, should I make a tag for it (called “BEDA”), or just file it under my memes tag?

I’m thinking of doing it because maybe it’ll help me prepare for NaNoWriMo this year – something I’d like to participate in as well since I didn’t think it would be possible for me as much last year. P: In case I decide to do BEDA 2012, feel free to offer some blog topics you want me to write about/things you’re interested in knowing about me, etc.

What is BEDA???? Now you’re making me curious.

@Liza, Ehm, isn’t it a bit too late to do it in July? It’s a nice idea but it would never work for me. If I don’t have inspiration I simply don’t want to blog about just whatever. But I suppose it’s great for those who always have a million blog topic ideas!

April or August. 😛 Wouldn’t do it in July, but August is soon…

I always think that quality is better of quantity. If you don’t think that your BEDA posts are good, then I would recommend against doing them. However, NaNoWriMo is geared towards quantity and not quality, and if BEDA is there to prepare for that, then you could make a BEDA category and hope that the posts aren’t too pointless. Either way, your call. 😛

Yeah, I like quality over quantity as well. P: BEDA posts are usually low quality posts, at least the ones I’ve seen.

You read my mind. Between you and me (though that’s not happening anymore as soon as I submit this), I had every intention of doing BEDA. And I plan on setting rules for myself so that they are not low quality. I’m going to be free from work the second week of August until the second to last, so there’s plenty of time to blog every day.

The downside is that I won’t be doing anything exciting to blog about, but that doesn’t mean I can’t blog every day. I’m not good at giving topics ideas, but I do believe there is always something little about every day that you can write about in a non-cheesy way (not trying to sound like my high school English teacher here).

Please do BEDA! It is indeed an accomplishment.

I don’t think you shouldn’t do the BEDA. I think blogs have more personality and just general topics when they are posted once or a week or a few times a month rather than every single day. Oh well haha. Any ways, which ever you decide to do, I wish you good luck and I’ll be checking back every day haha 😉
