Scrapping October

 “I have not failed 1,000 times.  I have successfully discovered 1,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb.” Thomas Edison said while searching for  ONE way to make a light bulb.

I haven’t started, or restarted this blog 1000 times, at least I don’t think so. But, I am still struggling with what I want to say, and how often.

I join different groups only to drop out because  I’m not the right fit for them. Yet, here I am again. Joining yet another group and trying something different.

Starting tomorrow, Monday Oct. 1, I will link up with The Nester, and a myriad of other bloggers to spend 31 days writing posts about one subject. Each blogger will choose her (his?) own subject. Mine is scraps.

 Yes, scraps. I’m a quilter, I love scraps. The scraps that make up our lives, as well as fabric scraps. The posts won’t all be about scrap fabric, although I’m sure several quilt posts will find their way into the scrap bag. Below is a list of the scrap posts.

Day 1 – Scrapping with discarded books
Day 2 – Scraps of History
Day 3 –  Jars of Scrap                                                                                                                 Day 4 – Scrap Fabric Hexigons from Circles                                                                         Day 5  –   Half Dozen Ways to use Scraps                                                                              Day 6  –  Mug Rugs and Hugs from  Scraps  

Day 7-  From Trash Can to the Bed 

Day 8 –                                                                                                                                             Day 9 –                                                                                                                                            Day 10 –                                                                                                                                          Day 11-                                                                                                                                                Day 12 –                                                                                                                                          Day 13-                                                                                                                                                Day 14-                                                                                                                                           Day 15-                                                                                                                                          Day 16-                                                                                                                                            Day 17-                                                                                                                                            Day 18-                                                                                                                                           Day 19-                                                                                                                                               Day 20-                                                                                                                                          Day 21-                                                                                                                                           Day 22-                                                                                                                                         Day 23-                                                                                                                                                 Day 24-                                                             Day25-                                                                                                                                                        Day 26-                                                                                                                                              Day 27-                                                                                                                                        Day28-                                                                                                                                                  Day 29-                                                                                                                                                Day 30                                                                                                                                                  Day 31

It takes 21 days to create a habit. By the time October is over and I’ve blogged daily I hope I’ve found my niche and know how I want the blog to continue.

If not, November’s another month and I’ll try again.  Come along and join us, read the other blogs, or choose your own subject and blog with us.I hope you enjoy the Scraps of October. Be sure to check out The Nester, and some of the other bloggers.  I love comments, and try to answer them as well as check out the blogs of my commenters. so, let’s talk. 🙂

    Hi Nita
    Blogging on a regular basis does take practice. It also takes a little interview with yourself about what you want from the blog. The regularity of posts on my blogs (I have 5) usually run with my interest at the time. Right now the music blog is getting overtime because the freelance is picking up and that’s my ‘connection’ to those people. I really need to get back to the author blog.
    Can’t wait to see how you do.

    Thanks Susan. I’m working on adding the link to the book. Dan told me a while back I needed to. Just been, let’s say on a break? Hope to get the link added this week. Also working on revamping the blog, we’ll see how that works. Are you going to try the 31 day thing? I bet you would have some fun posts. 🙂 Thanks for checking in.
