Leaving “all or nothing” by my 4th blogoversary

boy turns into tigerToday is my 4th blogoversary!

I wondered at the end of my third year of blogging whether my blog would peter out without my list of challenges to tackle and write about.

On my fourth blogging anniversary, I am happy to say that I’ve found some balance in my “all of nothing” inclination. I’ve settled into a groove of writing about whatever I feel like whenever I feel like it.

I don’t feel pressured either way: I’m not suffering from stat-related compulsions, and I’m not in an aimless funk.

MultiMEDIA Splice

This year, I started a new link party called MultiMEDIA Splice. While I appreciate the people who have linked up so far (thanks!), I can’t say that it’s caught on yet. And that’s okay. It keeps me posting at least once a week, and it’s a place for travel-related tidbits or new (or old) experiences that I might not post about otherwise. I also like that it’s getting me to incorporate more photography, music, and video into my posts.

400th post

In December, I published my 400th post: Searching for Jimi’s Castles Made of Sand. I didn’t notice it at the time, but thought I would commemorate it here.

Author and book, Timid No MorePaperback Writer

In March, I self-published a paperback version of my book, Timid No More. I felt like I had my fifteen minutes of fame when my local paper interviewed me about it. Okay, not fame exactly, but who wants fame anyway?
