…it’s time for me to do a bit of blogging. Or a lot of blogging. 30 days worth. A post a day. For the third year running, I’m joining a bunch of librarians and blogging every day in June.
It’s day 2, and I’m already a day behind. Well, sort of. I blogged yesterday over at the NLS6 blog, but I didn’t get round to doing my first post here. But here’s what I meant to say yesterday:
When I read smart, thoughtful posts like Hugh Rundle’s latest over at It’s not about the books, I get inspired to blog. Usually, I have a lot of trouble converting that inspiration into action. I’m not short on ideas, and I’m definitely not short on opinions. But I am short on time and I’m also the kind of crazy perfectionist who labours over every post before hitting send. So I see these awesome posts on topics that really interest me, and I want to respond… or I just get inspired to blog in general… but then, you know. Life happens.
This time round, though, Hugh’s post came just before #blogjune. Inspiration doubled. So here I am.
In other years, I’ve done this #blogjune thing to kickstart my blogging. This year, I’m just doing it for a bit of fun, because I’ve learned from experience that blogging every day for a month isn’t going to turn me into a regular blogger after the month is out.
So over the next month, I’ll be blogging here and over at the NLS6 blog, and hopefully a bit at my totally neglected food blog, fodmapfriendly.com. And the NLS6 crew are going to be blogging almost every day this month too, so make sure you head over to the site and subscribe! </end shameless plug>
