So Much For That

Well, it’s pretty obvious that I completely failed my August challenges. I at least feel like on the writing side, while I didn’t come close to my 5 times a week goal (HA!), I did manage to make 3 times a week pretty much every week. It’s not what I was hoping for, but it’s better than it was. I’ll take the failure that’s still an improvement.

But oof, my commenting challenge. Yeah. That. Not so much. I don’t know WHAT it is lately with commenting. What ended up happening was I kept pretty much all the posts I *meant* to comment on in my reader, so by the end of the month, I had something like 200 posts. Yeah. That wasn’t going to happen. I dunno how to get myself back into the habit. Maybe it’s just time to admit that comments aren’t a thing anymore? I keep trying to hold on to that part of blogging (even though, yes, I do lots of commenting on Twitter & FB, so it’s not like it’s totally gone, just shifted locations in a lot of cases), but maybe it’s time to give up the ghost? I dunno.

Anyway, I’m still glad I challenged myself. Even though I wasn’t successful, it did remind me of the whole liking to write thing that sometimes gets obscured by the whole I’m-really-lazy thing. I need to try and remember that first one more and get past that second one.

I try very hard to comment at the same time I read, which becomes difficult if I read on devices (and sometimes my work comp hates wordpress so that sucks too).

Hey, if someone wanted to do a monthly subscription box, which would you recommend? (I have Ipsy, but my coworker can’t decide)

Oh man, i’m so sorry I haven’t answered you yet! I’m terrible!

Of the one’s I’ve tried, I would say Ipsy if they are more into makeup & willing to try new brands/things/colors. If they’re pretty set in their makeup ways, eh, maybe not so much. I would say Birchbox if they want more of a mix of skincare/hair/makeup/lifestyle. Or if they’ve got $$ to spend, PopSugar.
