Raving Roundup: August 2011
I think I did really well last month blogging-wise. See, I was afraid I had blogged too much. I’ve been trying to watch myself with my blogs. It was pretty hard. Most days I felt like blogging, but I didn’t want to “go off schedule” – whatever imaginary schedule I really have for myself (if any at all).
This month I have learned that when life give you lemons, it’s not always easy to turn it into something sweet and refreshing like lemonade. Life’s full of both lemons and limes, and I’m hoping that for you this is no surprise.
I’m really loving the fact that I have been doing these Raving Roundups because for me, it’s a time of reflection between myself and my blog. I can remember everything that happened and everything that went on – even if I do not put it into words on a page – and it’s sometimes fun. I feel like it helps me grow as both a writer and an individual, and that’s why I do it. It is also a great challenge for me to challenge myself with, and I think that that’s all that matters.
My Raving Roundups don’t necessarily have to have descriptions – this time I challenged myself to explain why I do them so that those who don’t understand why I continue to do them monthly can/will know.
However, my five favorite posts for August 2011 are as followed:
