More than a few of us are doing what we learned, and I think it's the most appropriate finishing post for the month.
- I learned that I could blog every day. Sounds simplistic, but as I said, I think I doubted myself.
- I learned I like writing every day. Some days freelance writing can get too...well, let's say some days I find myself far too easily distracted. I let everything else take the priority list. Writing is good for me. It's good for my soul, even if no one reads the particular post I make that day. And the blog is more of a creative outlet than anything else in my world right now, and for that I am grateful.
- I learned that the more I blogged, the more ideas I had to blog about. As with all things, the ideas are all around us. It just takes us to pause a moment in this whirlwind called life and notice those ideas.
- I especially learned of a few new blogs that I intend to visit regularly. No names now, but in days to come, I'll definitely be mentioning them one place or another. They are too good not to share with the world.
- I hope I find myself--now that I don't feel I MUST post--taking time to write more essays here...food inspired or not. That's writing I love to read, and that's writing I would love to write.
- I learned that most bloggers are incredibly giving of their time--I asked a group of food writers if they would answer a few questions for my Thursday posts, and I was overwhelmed with the contributions my fellow writers, writers I consider friends even if we've never met, made to Babette Feasts just by answering those questions.
Thanks again, everyone for visiting day after day. I appreciate you all.
