If you often laugh at this housewife you are either my husband or a regular visitor to this site and you will know that I blog almost every day.  However, I missed seventeen blogging days in 2010 so I have signed up to WordPress’s postaday2011.  A couple of the missed days will have been because I left it late and the time difference meant my post at 11p.m. showed on next day’s date at 0a.m.  But there were enough missed days when I couldn’t be bothered or couldn’t think of anything, so I have taken the pledge.

Don’t worry, dear reader: this will not affect you in any way, unless you are willing to offer the occasional encouraging comment to keep me going.

I’m not off to a bad start: it is Dehrr Three in the New Year House and Tilly has managed not only to suddenly start speaking in the third person in a Geordie accent; but also to write seven posts.  It bodes well for me, if not for your eyes or your boredom threshold.  I wrote 409 posts last year: if the past three days are an indicator, you can look forward to 912 posts in 2011.

You might want to reconsider the nature of your encouraging comments.

    Ha Ha! I like your mathematical extrapolation. Hope it comes true for you, and that they are all as funny as this one! Cheers!

    You can’t have too much of a good thing.

    Good luck and best wishes! I know you can do it. I try to post something new every day, too. When I sometimes post 2-3 new ones in a 24 hr period, I usually take a rest the following day and post nothing. Ah well, I don’t like to be rigid, ya know!

      A sensible approach to life as well as blogging 🙂

    How funny! I have a post in the cue (probably Wednesday) about the exact same thing. No kidding! I’ve been doing a post a day since July. I think I’ve missed about 5 days.

      Excellent! It’s addictive, isn’t it? Most of my missed days were earlier in the year.

        Good luck with the daily posts. We Runcornians have true staying power (we need it to survive the Shopping City)

    Good luck with this post a day idea – it is a long way to go and you will need some encouragement. I managed here fom 1st July 2009 to June 30th 2010 and I am trying it again on my other blog ‘The Age of Innocence’ where I am trying to use anything fom the date in question to trigger a memory or a response from my life. Some days it is difficult and I have to stretch my imagination.

    You only missed 17 days in 2010? Wow – that’s pretty incredible!

    I signed up for this “post a day thingy-ma-jig” too but promptly forgot to check my daily emails from WordPress. I just found them and realised what they’re for! 😀 xx

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
