JusJoJan — To Suck and Not To Suck

0ABAEBF0-9D80-4119-AC64-52C64BB08433Linda G. Hill has this annual January thing she calls “Just Jot It January.” The idea, she says, is to give people “an excuse to push themselves to write a post every day of the month.”

Linda goes on to say that “the ‘jot it’ part of JusJoJan means anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list).”

For January 1st, she has asked us to “write about 2018, your plans for 2019, or anything you’d like.”

Alrighty then. Here’s my JusJoJan post for January 1:

I thought 2018 pretty much sucked. My plan for 2019 is that it won’t suck quite as much. Or maybe it will suck even worse. I don’t know. I thought 2017 kinda sucked and was hoping that 2018 wouldn’t suck quite as much. But that didn’t work out, did it?

Happy New Year.

The end.

Uh oh, Linda just posted THIS, which is different from the one I linked to at the top of my post. And she also changed what the earlier post had as the prompt for January 1st. Sheesh, it’s only January 1st and I already screwed it up. So please disregard this post from me today.

    Oh good grief. First of all, don’t you ever sleep?

    I saw the same challenge over at The Haunted Wordsmith, but I saw an entirely different challenge on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’s blog called, “2018 Attitude of Gratitude: Bloggers Flood the Internet with Happiness and Positivity.” I’m not going to respond to either challenge, but of the two, I’d prefer the latter.

    Regardless of who is President, the only actions you have absolute control over are yours. Same with me and everyone else. If you really want 2019 to be a better year, start by making a better you. I’ll try doing the same. Let’s see what happens.

      You take my tongue-in-cheek posts way too seriously. Here’s to us each being better in 2019. Happy New Year, James.

    Not only 2018 and 2017… 2016. And not too long after June 2015 (which moment on the escalator seemed like a joke), way too much attention was heaped on the Donald.

    And I saw it coming, in a way… not specifically with him.

    Interesting concept. Wanna try selling that to my muse, who is still groggy following this December? She won’t cooperate!!

    I did the same. I just ignored the first with the new Prompt. I do mostly “jotting” anyway!

      If I keep repeating that, will that make it so?

    Some f us post every day anyway. I realized I posted 600 more posts last year than the year before. THAT is why I feel so tired. I can’t — won’t — try to retain this post. If I don’t win the “biggest stat blogger” of the year, I can live with that.
