Wait, what’s this?
December is over! Shouldn’t the 31 Days of Blogging be over with it?
Well even though we have left December behind us, the 31 Days of Blogging shall continue. Or at least it shall for one more day.
I’m sitting on my couch watching the Eagles and Redskins play out the string. Since the game is essentially meaningless, I figured I might as well take a look back at my month of blogging.
I’m also hoping that the teams I chose for my three team parlay and fifteen team teaser bets come through. But that’s (hopefully) another story for another day.
When I first started the endeavor, I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d be able to do it. I figured that I’d either be too busy, or I’d just have a day where I had absolutely nothing to write about.
And some days it was indeed a struggle to get something written. But one way or another, I was able to come up with a post every day.
More impressively, I really didn’t even need to use much filler. I mean, the days when I simply announced a new Ad Pundit review weren’t too exciting, but considering I wrote a substantial ad review, I was okay with that.
I’d like to think that there was something for everyone this month. Whether you like reading about the Cutlet, sports, pop culture, or just random ramblings from my mind, there should have been at least a couple of entries that were up your alley.
Here’s a quick look at some of the month’s superlatives.
Weakest entry: Day Two and I’m Tired – I admittedly didn’t get off to a great start as I was tired and busy. At this point, I really didn’t think I was going to be able to go 31-for-31.
Most ambitious: In Search of the World’s Awesomest Song – I realized this one might be difficult to write, but I think I pulled it off decently well.
Speaking of which, you can still cast a vote if you have not done so yet.
Most time-consuming: The G.I.Joe Cartoon: A Critical Analysis – It took me awhile to do this one since I had to do all the screen captures and all.
Entry that I enjoyed, but I’m not sure that it really worked: It’s Been One Week – It was probably more fun to write than it was to read.
Most disappointing entry: Date Night with the DVR – I had decent expectations for this one, but it just didn’t work the way I had hoped.
Most popular entry: My Fantasy Football “Victory” Speech – I got a ton of traffic from search engines from people searching for a fantasy football victory speech.
Strangest entry: The Hamburglar: Scourge of McDonaldland – Yeah, this one was a bit out there.
Favorite entry to write: A Christmas Interview with Michael Bublé – I just really got a kick out of writing this one.
So now that the 31 Days of Blogging are done, what does the future hold for The Cutter Rambles?
I’ll still probably continue on the same sporadic schedule that I followed pre-December. When inspiration strikes me, I shall write. But I’m not going to force it.
I’m going to be concentrating more of my time and mental energy towards writing a novel. Part of the reason I wanted to do the 31 Days of Blogging was so that I would get in the habit of writing something every day, no matter how busy or uninspired I may be.
Because I know that if I don’t make a point to write each day, then it isn’t going to get done. There are just too many potential distractions. Hopefully, the dedication I showed this past month will carry over, and I will succeed in my goal. Wish me luck!
In conclusion, I’d like to thank everyone who read The Cutter Rambles both this past month, and throughout the blog’s lifespan. I hope it’s been at least somewhat entertaining for you, and I hope you stay with me in the days ahead.
