State of the Blog

It’s Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week and that you’re ready for a nice, relaxing (and hopefully, cool and dry) weekend.

This will be a different type of post today. I’m here to talk about the state of this blog for a moment.

For those of you who have been around since the beginning, you know that it’s started out as a blog to spread Torah and Judaism. After a while, I decided to make a dramatic shift with the type of posts and content that I wanted to have, and I made this into a ‘Daily Prompt’ blog, where I take an idea from the WordPress Daily Prompt website and then answer the prompt in the form of a post. It’s been going fairly well like this.

My blog has seen some modest growth for the almost 2 years that it’s been in existence (it started in October of 2012), and I’m happy with the growth I’ve seen so far.

However, with that being said…I feel like I need to evaluate where I want the blog to go from here. Yes, I write posts Monday through Friday, and I try to maintain that schedule to the best of my ability. I’m not going to lie when I say that sometimes, I feel that I’m just writing the posts because I have to and not because I want to. I’m starting to feel that it’s more of an obligation to the readers than a want for me. When I feel this way, It’s not a good sign, and it means that I need to take a step back and take a breather.

So, that’s what I’m going to do. I want to be excited when I write for this blog. If you go back a year or so, you’ll see that the posts had much more enthusiasm then they do now. To me the lack of enthusiasm is unacceptable and needs to be corrected. However, in order to do this, I need to cease writing for a while in order to re-gather my thoughts, strengths, and focus.

So with a heavy heart, I need to say that this will be the last post for a while. I’m not really sure when I’ll start posting again, but my goal is by the end of the summer. Rest assured that YDD 2.0 will be better than ever.

Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to writing for you all again in the future.

Have a great summer everyone!

Until next time!

Daily Prompt: Instant Celebrity

It’s Thursday everyone! Hope you all are having a great week so far. One day until the weekend folks!

Today’s topic:Celeb

If you could be a famous person for a day, who would you be? Why?

I’ve never really thought about this before. Who would I want to be? Interesting question here. There of a few celebrities that I really like. Which one of them would I want to be?

I’ll be honest with you. I’m really not sure. If I had to just name one off of the top of my head, I’d say Neil Patrick Harris, because he is funny, has the looks, has the personality, and he has a very successful career.

Until next time!

Daily Prompt: Rare Medium

Hey all! It’s Wednesday. Hope you all are having a nice week so far.

Today’s topic: Rare Medium

Describe a typical day in your life — but do it in a form or in a medium you’ve rarely — if ever – used before. If you’re a photoblogger, write a poem. If you’re a poet, write an open letter. If you’re a travel blogger, write a rant. (These are all examples — choose whatever form you feel like trying out!)

This should be interesting. I’m not quite sure what to do here. I generally write in the form of a narrative style (especially long posts). Other times, I do it in a matter of fact type of style. So how should I do this? I think I’ll do it in the style of a rant, because I don’t believe I’ve done a rant on here before.
/begin rant

Okay folks…here’s my thing. I don’t like it when people tell me one thing and then say something different afterwards. I had a situation at work where one thing was told to me, and then it completely changed the next week, making me look like a fool when I tried to repeat it back.

CHUTZPAH! I’m no fool, but I don’t like being made an example of because I don’t understand something! How would you like it if this was done to you? I don’t think you’d like it too much!

Moral of this rant?

Until next time!

Daily Prompt: Shape up or Ship Out!

Hey all! Welcome to Tuesday’s edition of YDD! Hope you all had a nice Monday and that it wasn’t too stressful or crazy.

Today’s Topic: Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

Here we go!
To my personality trait(s) of Anger and Jealousy:

You were brought into this world when Adam ate from the Tree of Knowledge, good and evil. You were supposed to remain external of man, but you didn’t. The Snake deceived Adam and Eve and it caused you to be integrated into Man. For this, I will forever blame that Snake.

Anyways, ever since you became integrated with Man, you have been causing nothing but severe problems with people. You single-handedly cause strife between couples, friends, lovers, etc. I can’t find any logical reason why you were even created! However, G-D does not create things in vain, so you must have SOME purpose.

My purpose for you is simple: TO GET OUT OF MY LIFE! I don’t want you, I don’t need you and I certainly don’t care about you in any way. I hope you burn in Gehenom and wither away. You have caused me so many problems that I can’t even count them.

I hope one day to be rid of you forever and NEVER have to deal with you again.

That’s it folks…

Until next time!

Daily Prompt: Singin’ in the rain

Hey all! It’s Monday, and I hope you all had a nice weekend. To all the fathers out there, I hope you all had a great father’s day weekend!

Today’s topic:Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof…describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.

For me, the perfect rainy afternoon consists of sitting in front of my computer watching YouTube or Netflix and eating a bowl of my award wining Mac and Cheese. Maybe I’d play some video games as well on my 3DS or computer.

Zelda anyone?

Orange is the New Black on Netflix, anyone??

Until next time people!
