Take-aways from the #yourturnchallenge

Today is day 7 of the week-long Your Turn Challenge, started by @winniekao.  The prompt for this final post is “What are you taking away from this challenge?”

I am taking a few things away:

  • It is not hard to blog each day if you just set aside a few minutes.
  • Having a prompt question is a great way to get bloggers started.
  • I need to work on my writing style:  I continue to be envious of those who are more pithy in their wording and more agile with sentence structure.
  • Blogging is a fabulous reflection tool, and helps solidify my thoughts.  I already knew this, but Your Turn Challenge provided a useful reminder.
  • I need to think what I want my blog to be: currently it is named “What I learned today.”  I need to decide if that is what I want to focus on or on something else.

So, thanks @winniekao, #yourturnchallenge has given me a great deal to think about.  I wish we could continue.  🙂
