The 30-Day Sit Spot Challenge is a way for you to connect with the depth of the natural world through one spot in the nature.
You can learn more about this 20 min. a Day Exercise, and why I think the experience can provide interesting opportunities for Writing Prompts, in the Introductory Post, and then follow the link, at the end of each post, to the next chapter.
Question #15: Drink dew off a safe plant, or tree, near your Sit Spot.
Quote to Ponder:
Always do your best, what you plant now, you will harvest later.
The parking lot on the north side of the park, seen almost empty during the week days, is full.
Not knowing what was safe, or not safe, as far as the plant life in the area of my Sit Spot didn't matter, yesterday, because at noon on a Saturday there was just nothing, um, dewing on anything, anyway. ;-D
Thinking about the words of Og Mandino got me to thinking about my journey as a writer, and blogger, since 2002.
Since the beginning I've alwasy done the best I knew how, and tried to learn new things along the way, in putting the best into the look of my blogs.
I've alwasy put my best effort in all my writing as well.
My blogs have never attracted huge amounts of traffic, and attention, much less advertising, and many probably wonder why I still write them.Og Mandino may be on to something, though, even if it may not appear that way.
I've been at it for 8 years, now, including Bike Blogging, and Cat Blogging, among other interests.
The contrast in the fates of the 2 interests is striking.
My Bike blog, one of the first to appear in America, has pedaled along, occasionally getting attention, and praise for its efforts, but little encouragement aside from people I've called friends for longer than I've been blogging, and a handful of cycling people that I am honored to also call friends.
It has never had any huge number of regular readers, or connections, and 98% of its tiny amount of traffic are drive-bys via Google Searches.
My personal blogs, meanwhile, kept up in traffic by attracting regular, real, readers, and commentors, especially because of the blogging related to my Cat.
Expanding that side of my creative blogging efforts, in January, by setting up my Cat in a place of his own, something that in hindsight I should have done years ago, saw the stirring of Og's "harvest".
In 3 1/2 months the blog of my Cat has not only kept up the traffic, but gotten a tiny fanbase of regular readers who have left over 350 comments on his writing, and the attention of journalists, and even activist organizations, as well.
Where this new direction for my creativity will eventually lead...I haven't a clue. ;-D30-Day Sit Spot Challenge: Day 16
