Whew!

So, today marks the last day on NaBloPoMo (hurrah, I hear you cry. How rude! :P )

A few people asked if I would do a bit of a review on this whole experience, so here's a quick little FAQ thing:

  1. Why did you do it?

    Well, for a few reasons really. The main one being that I've felt like I had nothing to blog about for months - years, even - and I wanted to get back into the swing of things. Did it help? Yes! I had a real problem where I felt held back by what others thought and this allowed me to think past that.

  2. What was the hardest part?

    Having something to write about. I had vague ideas every day, but nothing I really felt was worth publishing. I didn't want to post 'filler' so I went through past NaBlo prompt lists for inspiration.

  3. Did you cheat and schedule your posts in advance?

    I only did this with a few posts, like if I had a particularly long D-free moment and inspiration for posts and/or if I knew I'd be away the next day. In general though, they were all live.

  4. Why was everything posted at 6pm?

    Ah, that'll be my annoying edit-re-edit cycle :P I wrote most posts an hour or so before letting them go live, so I had time to fiddle with them as much as my perfectionism demanded. By 6 I was usually busy doing other things, so the version that was current at that time is the version that went out. Yes, I am weird. :P

  5. Will you update more frequently now?

    I'll try ;)

Yep, so there we go! I really enjoyed this challenge and definitely feel more inspired to write now. Hopefully I haven't bored you all too much with all this - maybe you even enjoyed it too :D
