I Quit

I quit. The Ultimate Blog Challenge, that is. It isn't that I'm a little behind. I'm sure I could catch up. It's that I've been reading some of the other challenge participants and I really don't feel I fit in. It's mostly populated by self-improvement blogs run by women projecting a 'professional businesswoman' image. There's certainly nothing wrong with that and I wish every one of them all the best. But, if anybody views me or this blog that way, I will fall on the floor laughing. For hours.

I blog for my own amusement. It rarely improves anything. Rarely even has deep meaning of any kind.

Laughing on the floor with you.

Ha, yeah. Some of the self-improvement blogs are useful. Mostly the time management ones but the great majority are kinda feel-good fluff. (Though I'm totally guilty of fluffy posts myself.)

You can afford to quit. I can't see you need much "self-improvement" at all!

Hi there.
I'm stopping by to thank you for joining up on the August Comment Challenge.

I was wondering about that challenge you posted about here.

Happy Commenting!

Harriet - The Ultimate Blog Challenge is a challenge to make 31 posts of at least 100 words during the month of August. I s'pose I could have continued it but I chose not to. Their website is http://www.ultimateblogchallenge.com/

I'm still going for your comment challenge, though. :)
