[post a day][1]I got up in a very good mood this morning (I won’t go into details) and, in a fit of joyous optimism, signed up for the WordPress ‘post a day’ challenge for 2011. Which means I have agreed to write a blog article every day for the rest of the year. Gulp. Actually, I was intending to do that anyway. Sort of. This is the carrot and stick I needed.

I’ve made rasher commitments. I’m married after all! And I have kids, not something you undertake lightly. Although if I’d known that at nineteen our eldest still wouldn’t have got round to learning to drive, or to finding out where the washing machine is or to working out how to open the dishwasher door to put things in it, possibly I’d have had second thoughts!

If you have a WordPress blog and feel tempted to dive right in, then check out http://dailypost.wordpress.com/. The whole idea is to encourage people to write and read blogs, which, as we know, is a great way to spend your time.

I just have to work out how to put the special logo up, which in itself will be good for me. I am woefully untechno, mainly because I have a hubby and daughter who are fluent in computer and can do all these sort of things in their sleep. So I’ve got lazy and leave them to do anything vaguely digitally demanding. Not any more. I must move into the 21st century, admittedly 11 years too late.

So any day you’re bored and have a few minutes to fill, remember to check on my blog for that day’s post. Because it will be there – I’m going to meet this challenge. Wish me luck!
