The BlogOlympics have begun!

Stop over at MamaBlogga and start working on your medals! I already am... :)

Time to get out of my blogging comfort zone, LOL. So far I've completed most of the events for a bronze medal so am working toward a silver - and who knows, I may even go for the gold!

Things I've accomplished so far:

  1. Added 4 new blogs to my blogroll (...And Miles To Go Before We Sleep, An Island Life, Summer's Nook and Are We There Yet - yes, they are all wonderful so check them out!).
  2. Commented on several new blogs (that I've never commented on before) - I lost track, but I know it's been at least 5 or 6 so far (and counting!). I love checking out new blogs. :)
  3. Submitted posts to social networking sites twice so far - I've got to remember to do this more...
  4. I've subscribed to one new blog so far and am always on the lookout for others to add to my growing list of subscriptions.
  5. I don't have old draft posts that I'm not going to use, since I tend to publish as I write most of the time. Is that odd? And does that count toward the medal requirement, I wonder...
  6. I participated in the Carnival of Family Life again this week - check it out over at Colloquium!
  7. My post submission for the Group Writing Project over at Summer's Nook will be up sometime today or tomorrow!
It's things like contacting someone about guest blogging or interviewing someone that are definitely freaky ideas to someone as entrenched in my comfort zone as I am (dare I say- timid, shy, introverted, quiet, has difficulty meeting new people, etc.). I'll work on it...

Ok, ok so if I would actually READ things through I would've seen that you only have to complete one event in each category to win that medal. Thanks to Summer for pointing that out below... You know what though? I'm having a lot of fun with this so I'm going to keep at it anyway and see how much I can do. Go for the gold, baby! :)

Did you know you only have to complete one event from each medal level to earn gold? I thought we had to do every event within each medal category at first too.

Really?? Well that's good to know! :)

Thanks for pointing that out, Summer! Looks like you're doing a great job, Deb--you can certainly use the progress you've made on other goals to work toward silver and gold events, too!
