Slice of Life


My dad's wife Jackie invited me to participate in a special blogging event through the month of March. Basically, you write a blog post every day, share it with other bloggers who are doing the same, and comment on a few of their blogs.

It's called the Slice of Life Story Challenge, but to me, it doesn't sound so much like a challenge as an excuse to use words! Thousands of words! Every day!

It's no secret—I love words. Finding something to write about daily won't be difficult; I've got Giant Cookie Reviews and MacaroniQuests and torrential thoughts about anything and everything aplenty. What will be a challenge is remembering to share my links with the Slice of Life community every day before midnight. Prattling incessantly is one of my strengths...participating in communities is less so.

But I will do it! I have done it, by writing this introduction! One day down, 30 to go!

I love how you are viewing this not as a challenge, but as a way to use words! Wonderful way of phrasing it! Best of luck with your Slices!

Valerie, so glad you are joining the SOL challenge. I look forward to learning more about you and reading those words you share with the community. It's a great place to share and to learn.

This made me smile, "It's called the Slice of Life Story Challenge, but to me, it doesn't sound so much like a challenge as an excuse to use words!" I'm wondering if I will be able to think of something to write about every day and then I read your words. I love the way you are thinking about the challenge. It will be fun. It won't be hard. It will be play. I suppose there's always a story waiting to be told.
