I loved this post! I have been blogging a while too and have had a sort of scattered area of focus. One thing I've recently (re)learned is how real and important some of my blogging friendships have been to me.

(I've been reading your blog a while but have never commented. I don't know why not.)

Blogging every day is intense!  Do you schedule daily posts all the time, even outside of the blogathon?  If so, my hat is off to you!

I liked what you said about sleeping on it. As a daily blogger I don't always have the opportunity to do this and sometimes I do "phone it in." That also leads me to be obsessed with my blog and spend hours "not living."
Thanks for all the tips.

Yesterday I was on the road all day driving home from an intense writing conference and just didn't have the brain space to do this topic. I haven't been blogging as long as you have, but you've said everything I would have written. So perhaps for tomorrow's post I'll just have a link to this post and write "What she said. . . "

Being yourself is not as easy as it sounds, and as you say, I think blogging is a great tool to find your voice.

Well put, Doña.

I'm a new-ish blogger, just over two years, which is long enough to discover that it takes more time to do than I would have thought, and when you're in some kind of rush to post, your blogging software chooses that moment to misbehave.


Great tips. Thanks Doña!
