Q is for Quitting

I've got to be honest, turning out a blog every day has turned out to be more time consuming than I had imagined. If I could go back I would probably have not done the A to Z Challenge. I have appreciated the comments that have come in and the new people I have interfaced with. I really have. You have no idea what each comment I receive means to me.

My post on priorities yesterday got me thinking about the time I have put towards this blog and how it has pulled me away from the writing I want to do. This little blogging adventure is going to teach me to think a little more before I start taking on new things.

I'm not quitting, though I'd be lying if I said it hadn't crossed my mind. I'm going to see this challenge through. I do see the opportunity for growth and I hope to be able to connect with more people. And I've made it this far, I'd only be kicking myself if I threw in the towel this late in the game. And it isn't that it has been an unpleasant experience, only a time-consuming one.

Sorry that this post is a bit of a downer, but I just wanted to blog what I'm feeling today. I'm going to keep this brief as I've promised a friend I would help out with something. Nice thing is that it is writing related, so I think it is for a good cause.

And, really, the letter Q? Somebody needs to call up that letter and tell it to get a real job!!


  1. i hear you. learned my lesson from last year though so I made sure to write and schedule my posts ahead of time. Since I finished all posts in March, i've just been focusing on visiting 100+ blogs a day this april. still time consuming though!
    Happy A-Zing!

  2. Ha-ha! - hilarious sentiments about the letter Q. Quazy, Quirky, Quippable Q!
    You know what, friend? If you stopped the A to Z quaziness right this very minute you would not be quitting, you would be wisdoming. Do you hear me - wisdoming. You've already gained your benefits! Stop the madness! Stop the misdirection of your talents! We'll all sing your praises and be SO inspired to take up wisdoming ourselves! Do it, James, do it!

  3. very true about the letter Q. Yeah, this A-Z blogging thing is pretty tough, but I love the networking. Good luck with the end!

  4. Here to encourage you James. Don't feel pressured to post every day, if you miss a letter or two it's not big deal. Keep your posts short and sweet. You're doing a really great job so far.

    Stopping in via the A-Z blogging challenge.

  5. True, but Qs have so much Scrabble value...
