Bridge in Kentucky. Don't remember where, just remember being scared to death.

The following posts are a round-up of many great posts around the blogathon. There are so many great posts, that I can’t possibly do the all justice. I hope you will check out WordCount 2013 Blogathon for more.

*Lazy Bones Running http://www.lazybonesrunning.blogspot.com/ Just reading the subheading after clicking on the title is enough to inspire me to get out and run. Putting that one down in my journal to refer back to when I’m trying to talk myself out of running.

*  Two Hands and a Road Maphttp://twohandsandaroadmap.com/2013/06/28/a-getting-to-know-you-reader-poll/ I love this idea, might have to borrow it for July.

*Victoria Musgravehttp://www.victoriamusgrave.com/five-things-friday-advice-from-blogathon-writers/ Victoria had the same idea as me, so I’m sharing her post here as well. You can never learn too much about blogging and staying organized.

Thanks for reading everyone.

Two days to go.

THANKFUL THURSDAY: This too shall pass.

That's me on the left... finish line face; half grimace, half smile.

Today is the last Thursday of WordCount’s 2013 Blogathon. The finish line is on the horizon.

It’s hard to believe that I have blogged every day for the past 27 days. At times it’s been exhausting. I’ve struggled to find new content, yet keep the theme of active senior citizens (I think I mixed it with staying healthy as well).

I’m thankful that I accepted this challenge. It’s made me more aware of what it takes to build a freelance writing career. I’ve also learned a lot about what it takes to be fit at every age.

I’m thankful for all the new followers and friends I’ve met this past month. I hope future posts will continue to keep your interest.

So, with only three days left in the challenge, I have to say I’m thankful that it’s almost over.

I plan to keep blogging about three days a week, but not every day. Maybe that will give me more time to prepare better posts.

We’ll see.
