I’m not usually predisposed to these various self-competitions, because what is the point, really? Heck, I wander around doing whatever I feel like most of the time because my logic is “Oh, everyone is doing Thanksgiving things? I’m going to do something else.” I prefer to think of myself as a lone
wolf cat. One of my friends, however, badgered me into a private wager with a group of fellow friends.
How it works: Post every day for the rest of the month. Cost: $50. If I win, I get my money back. If I fail, my $50 (and the $50 from any others who fail) is divided between the winners.
Given that I’m a huge nerd who spends hours researching or preparing most of my posts (a reason why I only post 2-3x a week, Quantity < Quality), I thought this competition was stacked against me and accused my friend (in a friendly manner, of course) of being after my money.
Game on, my fellow bloggers. Game on. I have a fierce predator competitor nature when I choose to exercise it.
So if you are wondering why my posts increased in frequency about 150% on my own blog, this is why. I’m even obligated to post on Saturdays and Sundays, which I think is cruel and unusual punishment, considering I also have blog commitments to other places. But I will endeavor to continue to provide you with quality me.
If you like that I’m posting more frequently, make sure to please tell me so and I will look at expanding my schedule. If you get sick of me, please go to 3 Chickens and a Boat and tell Julie this competition was a really bad idea 😉
My other competitors:
Be sure to visit the other sites from time to time and give them a cheer on!
And since I can’t seem to do a post without my inner dweeb coming out to play, did you know that the word “moar” is not just one of those cute cat meme misspellings? It’s supposed to be a demand for more like a roar.
And now you know.
