WordPress Posting Challenge

Exploring the solar system one photo at a time

Ok, it’s not really a challenge for me because I post an awful lot of things here on Lights in the Dark, but I think it’s great that WordPress is putting forth the effort to get more of their bloggers….well, blogging, with their Post Every Day Challenge. It’s an attempt to get people writing, regardless of what about, and that’s just plain old good stuff. They’re even posting some topic ideas on the Daily Post page for those times when just nothing wants to come to mind. (And the older I get the more that seems to happen!) Again, I usually get at least a post up every day if I can, sometimes two, but I may end up skipping a day here and there because I can’t find anything particularly blogworthy or relevant. (I do try to keep the daily astro news flowing on my Facebook and Twitter pages though, so if you’re not a “friend” or “liked” – or whatever they’re calling it these days – yet, head on over there and sign on!)

Long story short, if you see posts with the tag “postaday2011” that’s just WordPress’ way of tracking these things. (They also have a lower-caliber “postaweek2011” version for those with actual lives. Whatev. ๐Ÿ˜› ) Maybe I’ll get some new readers, maybe I’ll get more posts up, it’s a winning situation either way!

If you’re new here, welcome and hope you like what you see. If you’re an existing fan, welcome back and thanks for enjoying Lights in the Dark!

    Just to say John, that I continue to enjoy your postings. Without people like you sharing all this wonderful stuff, where would the rest of us be? We can’t all be astronauts, except in our dreams or reading, but we can vicariously share your experiences and knowledge and that is really fantastic – technology is grreat.

    Sorry, heheh, my apologies Jason. I have no idea where John popped up from – maybe because I am a Brit and we had a PM called that?

      Not a problem. I know I use my first initial on my entries and so that leaves some room for interpretation. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for enjoying the site!
