Day One, 2012--Hi, My Name is Heather

Good morning, lovies!

Just a few quick notes before we get things started today:
  • I'm still making my list and checking it twice, but there should be a list of participating blogs up by this afternoon.  Yes, there is still time to add new blogs, and frankly, I've added new blogs up until the middle of the month before.  We're easy like Sunday morning around here.
  • Blog buttons--There's a new one up on the Grab a Button Page.  I'll have a couple more finished by the end of the day.
  • Prompts--The list is almost done, and I'll have it up by the end of the day.  For today, I'll be posting a "Who Am I" entry at I'm Not Hannah AND at the Heather Ray Photography blog.  (Yes.  I have one of those.  I am a woefully under-achieving business blogger.  Sigh.)  I suggest all of y'all do an introduction entry today.  A:  They're easy and B:  Lots of us don't know who you are.  (I mean that literally and spiritually.  We're all just bumbling around in this world.)  (Early morning makes me philosophical.)
  • About that posting every day thing:  Last year, I failed at this.  I was new at the hospital job, I was stressed by Jeffrey's school year, and I had a spot of unpleasantness on the interwebs that left me feeling a little flat.  UNDERSTAND:  This isn't a competition.  This isn't a sprint to the end of October.  This is meant to be fun.  I will undoubtedly forget to post until midnight and I will TOTALLY go back and retro-date it.  I might forget to add a prompt or a blogger or a button.  You might get vomited on by a child or pet and not be up to posting that day.  Y'all.  A meteor could fall right on all of our heads and we aren't able to blog that day. It's okay.  October is a slow, chilly, spicy, slide into the holiday season for a lot of us.  Get a cup of tea or cocoa or mulled rum and a spice cookie or a scone or a tuna salad sandwich and enjoy yourself.  Okay?  Okay.
BLOG ON, MY FRIENDS.

Blog on.

EDTA:  Still getting lots of responses and that's awesome!  I'll be responding to emails ASAP and putting up prompts and the new roll.  Busy, busy, busy...

You take your time, Heather. We have enough and more to deal with- this is supposed to be fun.
I was planning something else for today, but I guess I can manage a Who Am I post- if I figure out who I am in the 4 hours and 50 minutes that is left of the day for me.

one of the things i love about this is that it isnt a competition. its just a bunch of regular folks trying to be better bloggers. go us!

I'm excited. I'm trying to write a little bit ahead of time and plan on utilizing Wordless Wednesdays to help me. This will be my first big writing commitment and I'm nervous, but it's a good thing. :)

I am excited to be doing some great writing on here and sharing more. I started one for NaBloPoMo and I write daily if possible. My challenge this month will be writing at least one daily post.
My blog is Caffeinated Country Diva Diaries or http://www.caffeinateddiva.com

I can't wait to read everyone's posts.

Gosh, I am such a creep! I marked this in my calendar and promptly (no pun here) forgot about it. Ah, I am pulling up my whatsits and getting to it now! Yes, I shall be guilty of retro-dating.

So looking forward to all the lovely reading! :D (Thank you Emily Sovich of Keeping Time for jogging my memory!)
