Blogging 201: Day Eleven- Buddy Up

Late to start. Late to finish. That’s just typical for me. 😦

I started the Blogging 201 challenge a couple of weeks late. Too late to really get into the whole community aspect of it. IMHO, that is the best part of it. Interacting with all the other bloggers working on the same challenge and all their different takes on it.

Since I was so far behind, everyone was working on totally different things than I was. I just kept an eye on what they were doing and tried to catch up.

The challenge ended a couple of weeks ago, but I hate to quit anything I’ve started. So, here I am again, plugging on with the Blogging 201 challenge.

The assignment for Day 11 was (is) to “find a blog buddy”.

I did read the assignment only a few days late. 😉 I’ve been thinking about it since (in the back of my mind). I haven’t yet come up with anybody specific to ask to ‘be my buddy’. 😦

I wonder if it would be better to try and buddy with someone with similar interests (offshore, maritime, travel, politics, nature, sailing, boats, philosophy, liberty, food & drinks, music, books), or someone with interests that I really don’t post about much here (fashion, beauty, celebrities, family, kids, relationships, sports).

I think for now, I’ll still just keep this idea in the back of my mind. I really haven’t had the time to work on this blog as much as I would like to lately. I’d hate to have someone else depending on my being able to keep to a writing schedule right now. 😦

At some point in the future, I’d like to try to use the guest blogging idea. I think either way (like/unlike my blog) would work to try a different audience.

Has anybody else been participating in the Blogging 201 challenge? Did you complete the assignment for Day 11? How did it go?

Does anybody want to be my buddy?

  1. Glad you found my blog, buddy on this topic so yes, we are late and like you, once I started something, I won’t give up. Better late than never. Your suggestion on sharing posts on social media is a good one. I would like to try guest post too. Will explore on that so we could at least do one guest post for each other.


    • That sounds good Borneo Girl. Give me some time to check out your blog again. I did see you looking around here. Thanks. I’m glad you liked it. I’ve been really busy trying to get a bunch of paperwork and stuff done for a new job I’ve been trying to get for like 6 months or so. My computer is also sick and giving me huge headaches.
      I’m sorry but I’m not able to do it faster. 😦
      I will keep the guest post idea in mind. We can always come back to that later. 🙂
