A few weeks ago, I got an email at work that said that the entire company was to shut down for a week over the Thanksgiving holiday. That time has finally come, and today was the first day of that vacation. I don’t go back to work until December 1st, and I’ve got nothing pressing to do during the day until then. Those facts make me smile.
I get the sense that I will find plenty to keep me busy. I’ve got tons of website reworking and redesigning to do for seven different websites. (Maybe I’ll let you see them as I make progress if you’re interested.) I’ve also got a lot of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time to play. I mean, hey, that game isn’t going to play itself, people! But as I was thinking about it, I realized that I should also offer some benefit to you, my reader, since I had such a windfall.
I looked over at the calendar showing the number of times I’ve blogged this month, and I’ve decided that I don’t like how sparse it is over there. So I’m now promising you that I will blog every day from now until December 1st, since I know I’ve got the time.
I may not talk about what I did that day (in fact, I usually try to avoid writing a “what I did today” blog) but I’m sure I’ll cover many interesting subjects. Well… many subjects. If it goes well, I may try to imitate the blogging consistency of my friend Jeff and blog every day in December. Or… better yet… maybe we should have a competition amongst the circle of blogging friends on this server and a few other places (you know who you are) to see who can blog the most in December, and then pool together to buy that blogger a prize for Christmas (which means that logically the competition would have to end before Christmas, but you get the idea). We would have to define what a “blog” is, precisely, so we would know what to count, but after that it’s just a numbers game.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Winter blogathon?
