Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22978 – 1055
Here’s the haps:
Award-winning horror & fantasy author, honest book reviewer, blogger, animal lover, and just nice person, Iseult Murphy, whom I have featured here in times past, has been doing a blogging challenge from WordPress called Bloganuary. I had never heard of it until this year. They add a new prompt every day in the month of January. Personally, I would have called it Bloguary as it rolls off the tongue more readily. But WordPress is a strange and interesting animal. There is WordPress.com which seems to be the main crux of where WP activities are and there is WordPress.org which is for people like me whose sites are independently hosted and we only use the software. I’ve noticed that a lot of times there are gaps between the two like software updates are done differently and at different times. We are able to connect to the .com side by a plugin called Jetpack but I think we must still miss some things because of that. It could also be that I don’t care as much about blogging and the blogging world as I do about writing in my blog.
Anyway, you don’t have to have a WordPress blog to participate. You sign up at the Bloganuary site and wait for the prompts to be published each day. You write your post and tag it #bloganuary and leave a link in the comments of their main site and if you have other social media accounts you can, of course, post about it there as well with the same hashtag.
Normally on things like this, I go back and try to catch up from the beginning but I think I will just pick it up from where it is at the moment. This post is scheduled for the early morning so I will have to do another one later in the day. I guess we’ll see what happens.
