I’m posting more often in 2011

Have you challenged yourself yet for 2011?

I want to post to my blog more often this year, so in 2011 my goal is to post at least once a week.  Hopefully I can keep that up.  So far this year I have posted three times in eleven days, this being my fourth.  I’d say that I’m off to a good start, wouldn’t you?  🙂  The challenge is to keep that up when there are many other things to take me away from blogging.

WordPress came up with the “experiment in blogging motivation” and made the suggestion of posting every day or every week.  Every day would not be wise of me to commit to, it was fun during NaNoWriMo but with that challenge not going on now I will not be trying to blog daily.  But, I think I can do it every week with encouragement and reminders.  WordPress set up The Daily Post as an aid to the community of bloggers with similiar goals to help us along the way.  There may be ideas there that I can use for when I need them.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and come by on a regular basis.  I appreciate your interest.

So, have you challenged yourself yet for 2011?

Yesterday was a palindrome!

So, what is a palindrome you ask?  A palindrome is a word, or phrase or even a number that can be read the same way in either direction .. beginning to end or end to beginning.

Examples of words:  level, civic, radar, kayak

Examples of phrases:  famous ones are “A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!” and “Was it a rat I saw?”

Example of numbers: yesterday’s date 1102011  Do you see it?  Read it both ways and you will.

These kinds of things fascinate me.   It was brought to my attention again  when I came across this blog today:  http://gwenelle.wordpress.com/2011/01/10/palindromes-in-2011/   Gwenelle talks about interesting things on there, so you may like to read up on some of this.

I also visited Wikipedia to see what they have to say about it.  Interestingly, they say January 2, 2010 (01022010) was the last one and that the next one will be November 2, 2011 (11022011) – but they completely missed January 10, 2011 (1102011)!  Maybe because it is one fewer number?  Dunno!  You can check out the fascinating info they have here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palindrome

Do you ever give things like this any thought?  What oddities interest you?
