Well, my week off from writing blog posts and visiting yours instead was indeed a challenge. The break away from writing made me full of ideas to use for future posts. Why is it that when we need to write something, nothing comes, and when we need to not write, our thoughts become full of writing ideas?
I was spotty in my attempt to reclaim that reader however. I did get to stop by and visit with some of you - reading through a month's worth of posts and catching up on your hopes, dreams and daily dishes. I haven't yet gotten to the rest of you. I will try to do more of that this week and get back into my regular blog hopping routine.
The Reclaim Your Reader event showed me that the other half of blogging, the visiting half, requires dedication and I admire all of you who never waver in your support. I aim to be better soon and have learned a bit more about the approach I need to take to make it happen.
As for the winner of the $25 Amazon gift card, I did a very unscientific and low-tech drawing - I ripped up numbered squares of paper, shuffled them around in a hat and drew one out. The winner is Amy of The House of Seven Tails. Sounds like she could really use the card right about now too so I am very pleased she turned out to be the winner!
Thanks to everyone who participated at any level - hopefully future events will bring more attention to the visiting side of life in the blogosphere :0)
