When I started this Dog Blog Challenge a month ago, it seemed a bit daunting: a blog post a day on a pre-determined topic, plus my normal blog posts (to say nothing of my everyday life, new job, whatever).
In the end?
Not only was it not as daunting as I thought it would be, but I think it has helped my blogging – I know I can post even more than I was, with just a little planning on my part. More importantly, I have learned a lot about what works for me in terms of blogging – and, probably most importantly, what doesn’t work for me.
Would I do it again? Definitely. I enjoyed it so much that I am starting another challenge this month – more info on that either later today or tomorrow (though as it only involves 12 days over the course of 3+ weeks, it seems almost easy in comparison!). Some of the posts were more difficult than I expected, and others were easier than I anticipated. I didn’t always get the posts up on time (see, e.g., the current post you are reading), but everything did get posted within a couple days of when it was supposed to be posted. I’ll count that as a win.
If you want to do a similar thing, I highly recommend it. I got the idea at The Dogtails, and I highly recommend you take a look over there – lots of great posts!

Wait until you see a picture later in the week (probably the Friday Week in Review, but maybe earlier) – she was having a blast rolling around in the snow at my parents’. We’re actually somewhere without snow for the moment, so she’ll have to wait to see some for another couple days.
