At the beginning of 2011, when WordPress announced their Post A Day and Post A Week challenges, I gave this some thought and decided not to sign up. It was mid-summer here in South Africa and as I suffer from severe migraines in summer, I was pretty sure that I was not going to be able to keep up the pace. Definitely not for Post A Day, and maybe not even for Post A Week if I was having a bad week. As the months went by I noticed that some bloggers who had signed up, were definitely taking strain.
Most bloggers don’t write or blog for a living, so find it really difficult to balance blogging daily with their other responsibilities – having a job (whether inside or outside of the home), taking care of their families, and having some time just to relax or take time for their hobbies or sports.
I had contemplated writing a post about this. Then recently, in my search for examples of interesting looking blog layouts, I came across this post by Shay from The Files of a Logophile called Overbloggers Anonymous (OBA). I think she did such a great job of writing about Post A Day, that I’m not going to attempt it. Please click on the link and read it. It’s good and it’s funny – and it’s true.
