BLOGTOBERFEST ... for lapsed bloggers

My name is Becoming Dr Doc, and I am a lapsed blogger!

I began blogging in May this year, stopped in May this year, then started again last week - in September this year.

Perhaps foolishly, I have decided to join in with Blogtoberfest - hosted by tinniegirl. By taking the plunge and joining in, I have opted in to blog every day in October!!!!!! (This does indeed seem a crazy thing for a lapsed blogger to do.)

If you look closely at these photos, you can see the city - very tiny - in the centre of the photos.

I took these photos from the window of a moving car, and the size of the city is how I see the end of October at this point in time! As a lapsed and extremely episodic blogger, posting every day for the next 31 days seems almost like an impossible task, but I am going to take on the challenge.

I may not succeed in posting every day, but if I post more often than my weekly average for the year, I will have exceeded my total posts - for ever and always, and this seems like a worthwhile goal.

It will be an exciting month, our house is being auctioned, it is my birthday month, and I am planning to rejoin my orchestra group after a few years break so there should be lots to talk about.

A festival is a great way to go about building community, which is something I like to wax lyrical about, and so with gusto I say, put your hair in pigtails, pitch your tent, turn up the music and let's party - it's festival month.


  1. I enjoyed your musings on community, nice to be introduced to a new blog via blogtoberfest! :D

  2. Good luck! It will be a challenge but no matter what you will learn something from it, even if it is just where your limits for blogging are :-)

  3. YES! A festival IS a great way to go about building community and Tinniegirl is EXCELLENT at it!! I'm looking forward to reading about your reunion with your orchestra group =-)
