Why I’m Not Participating in 31 Days Of…

There are many, so very many, talented and gifted writers taking part in The Nesters 31 Days Blog Link Up.  And you may be one of them (I’m honored that you are reading here!).

I, however, will not be.  Not this year. And maybe, not ever. 

I have a problem, you see.  It’s called, “I Want To Read Them All-itis”.  It’s a well-documented disease.  I promise. Would I lie to you?

What is not so well documented, is how many ways of Sunday you can get wonderfully lost in the sea of this series. Just reading through the name of some of the topic links that are already up over there… Oh My Stars! I am stinkin’ excited to read along with these beautiful writers, artists, thinkers, and creators!

And so, you’ll find me over here – and happily – reading along with a few of my favorites. (Inspiration & Faith and Writing, Blogging, & Internet Stuff are my top two topics.). I’m on the hunt for some new ideas and I’ve no doubt that I’ll be able to find them at The Nester’s link up.  I’m sure I’ll be highlighting them along the way throughout this month, too.

But, for now, I’m just going sit back and marinate in all of the creative juices poured forth from the brave and willing participants.

And it’s gonna be goooooood!

Have you checked out the topic choices that are already up?  What’s one of your favorite topic ideas?

  1. Oh, last year I discovered the 31 Days and spent the month finding wonderful posts to read which have impacted my life. I wanted to be part of the challenge, but I am spending so many hours on my posts that I have read so few of everyone else’s. I need more hours in my day just for that! I love your take on it! I may be with you next year so I will have time to read!

  2. Missy, I so agree with you, and I’m not participating either. But I am very excited to read what so many others have to write. My biggest problem is the commitment, though. Posting everyday…yikes! 🙂 And it’s not the writing I fear, but the posting of it! Also, I just noticed you’re going to Allume!! First I missed you at She Speaks, now Allume! I’m so sad I won’t be there!! I’ll remember to pray for you and I know you’ll be blessed. Love to you, friend.

    • Oh Jacqui, I would have LOVED giving your neck a squeeze, too. But I think you’ve got something better to be doing for the next couple of months. 😉 Maybe next year. The posting… yes – exactly. A lot to keep up with and a commitment that I just knew I wouldn’t be able to honor right now. But, oh, to follow along with others!

  3. Now that I’ve committed to participating, I envy your position!! But you are The Best Cheerleader ever, and every single writer you come across will GREATLY be encouraged by you cheering them on from the sidelines! CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU IN PERSON IN JUST A FEW WEEKS!!

  4. Oooh! My sentiments exactly. Yesterday was the first I’ve heard of this 31 Days Of thingy. Sounds intriguing, but I’ll be sitting this one out as well. Instead I’ll be over here reading up a storm right along with ya! 😉

    • Giggling at “31 Days Of Thingy”. Now THAT’S a topic for the masses. 😉 I’ll pass my reading glasses, kay? And the Devil Dogs!
