Going Batty

“She’s got bats in the belfry, squirrels in the attic, owls up in the loft. She’s apeshit, bughouse, batty, mad as a march hare”                 –by gramaticon

Bats are interesting. I have heard their echolocating  cries in the evening. They do eat insects which helps control the insect population. I am glad we do not have any in our attic or any nearby belfries however.

When I first started posting daily for NaBloPoMo and Nano Poblano I thought I would go batty. I have gotten a bit less batty lately coping with the demands of writing.

I do attempt to read others blogs and courteously check in on most of the people who like mine. It has been nice to meet some new blogger friends.

One of my goals has been to connect with other writers and I think these events have helped.

So thanks to all the bloggers who have visited, liked and commented on my blog. Hope you keep visiting and I get to know you better. And welcome to anyone who may not have visited yet.

    A post that started out as an informative article about bats and streamed off into a thank you note – don’t see many of those! 😀 That’s exactly what SoCS is supposed to be for! Well done, Deborah. 😀

    Your photo really caught my attention, Deborah! I’m glad that you are adjusting to the pressures of daily posting 🙂 I have officially dropped NaBloPoMo and the 750words/day monthly challenge, after I fell asleep typing last night. My daughter does this sneaky thing where she changes the time zone so she can get her 750 words in on time, but I feel like there will be other months. I am still hanging in there with Photography 101, though.

    I hear you. I think you have young kids at home. I remember those days and I was so busy with them and their activities and besides you said you were home schooling. I still find this daily posting and reading everyone else pretty demanding. I think I will be glad when the daily posting activity is over. I have enjoyed connecting with you and some of the other bloggers. I appreciate your comments! I am thinking after this month hopefully there will be a group of us that stays in touch. I would really like that. I hope we stay in touch Sandi 🙂

      I hope we do, too, Deborah! Interactions with you here at WordPress have brightened my day, again and again. It will be interesting to see how many of us from the September Blogging 101 class are still at this blogging gig, a year from now.

    Been good to find your blog via Team Pepper. On holiday last year a bat flew in to the main house where a group of us were staying. I don’t know who was more scared – us or him!

      I can imagine. I have not had that experience with a bat but with other things. A bird once. You are trying to get them out and not get them killed. And they are flying around in a panic. Glad I found your blog too.
