My First UBC--Analysis & Questions
This was the first Ultimate Blog Challenge I've ever participated in. And I managed to post 31 times in 31 days. I missed a day here and there, but made up for it with 2 posts on a subsequent day. I'm pleased with myself for being able to meet the challenge. I've proven to myself that I CAN post more frequently and still keep up with all the other stuff I need to do. I just need to remain disciplined so that I don't allow one "missed" day to become a week or more! Time will tell if I've got what it takes.
I got no new followers from this month of blogging. I really expected at least a few. I rarely even got the 2 "required" comments from fellow UBC bloggers. That was terribly disappointing, mostly because I hate when people don't follow the rules. I didn't even find any new blogs that interested me enough to follow them. There seemed to be a lot of I'm-an-authority-on-such-and-such-and-you-should-do-things-this-way posts. That may have disappointed me the most. I was hoping to develop some new relationships.
So other than finding my own writing and time-management capabilities, I don't know what I've accomplished here. I'd love to hear thoughts from others who participated in the UBC--how did it work out for YOU?
