I also had less time all round for visiting as the month went on, though I did do my best, it seems a lot of other people didn't have the time either or lost the motivation they had had in the beginning. I do the first 5 blogs after my place in the list as we are advised, I also like to pick blogs from the list at random to see who I end up with, I find that a lot of fun as you never know what sort of blog you'll get and can find the most awesome blogs that way which you may never have seen otherwise. I always leave a comment.
One great thing is reading the daily blog for the Challenge itself. They are motivating, not only in content but also because you know there's always a new one there, bar Sundays. It's good to see them. The comments from those posts also keep me going, I love to feel part of a community and the comments from other people here is a big thing for me, reading how they are getting on, if they are also struggling or having a blast or whatever, it's all good. It's nice to see the same names there as you get to 'know' them.
I wasn't going to do it this year but couldn't resist in the end, I bet next year will be exactly the same. If I can sort myself out I'm going to try to think up a theme and start writing months in advance, but if not (read 'probably won't happen') I'll just do the ones where there may be other things going on for certain days.
I'm off to go through the rest of the blog list now - see you there!
