#SoL20- Day 31-Wow!


#sol20- March 31, 2020

Well, there you go, 31 days “in the books” for the sixth year in a row.

I actually entered this year with great trepidation. I was invested in the #100daysofnotebooking and felt busy enough with that. Somehow I still signed up (and to be a Welcome Wagon volunteer too). I rationalized that I could do my best and would not be hard on myself if I did not succeed.

I will say that there were many days I was not proud of most of my writing, but I showed up-every single day. I made comments on my new slicers’ posts each day and a few extras too. It felt like a marathon.

I was surprised that I stuck with it (my time zone means that one day I snuck in one just before the deadline). I was also surprised that I did not use any of my old standby favorites (currently, top tens, etc.). I was also surprised that I had views from 14 countries-something I have never looked at before. I also discovered in my stats that this is my 484th post!

So many slicers’ words stuck with me and I value the community here every day. I already know I will be back next year (hopefully better prepared).

For now, I go back to my notebooking- today is day 91 of the original 100. This too will continue. Next Tuesday will find me here on TWT again.

Tomorrow the Classroom Slice of Life Challenge starts and we are not in school. I have no idea which of my students will take it up, but I am ready to be their cheerleader.

Thanks for being part of the community here. It means more than I can say, especially now.

    Wow! You are busy with Slice and Notebooking occurring at the same time! I loved reading about your surprises. Yes, I plan to try to post each Tuesday as well. Your 484th post – really! And 14 different countries represented on Slice. That’s amazing! See you next Tuesday!
