Bloganuary Day 31 – we made it!

Last day of the blogging challenge!!! Cannot believe we made it to the end. 31 days of blogging in a row. For the most part I have really enjoyed it, however, I do feel the prompts have went downhill since the beginning. I can appreciate it must be difficult to think of new topics every day that will keep people enthralled. I was really hoping for an amazing prompt today, seeing as it’s the last one but it fell a bit flat for me. What do you think of today’s topic? On a positive note, it does make you think outside the box.

I don’t often see many stars living in the city. So when I do have the chance to see them, I know for sure that I am out of the city and a little more rural. This in itself is a good feeling as I must be on holidays.

There is something very special about looking at the stars and it always makes me feel contented. It provides a feeling that the world is not that big, as everyone on the planet can look at the same stars (not all at the same time). It brings us together as human beings and with me living so far away from home, I take comfort in knowing we are all under the same stars ☺️.

I also often think about who else can see the stars out there. Are there other planets or galaxies with living beings that can also see the the same stars? Or maybe they have their own stars.

I feel calm and at ease when looking at stars too and almost become lost in their beauty in the night sky. How does everyone else feel?

On a final note, I would like to add a huge well done to everyone for making it this far with Bloganuary. It has been an amazing month of blogging, making new friends and reading other people’s perspectives. It’s funny how we all interpret the blog prompts differently and we form our own methods and ideas to tackle the questions. I have thoroughly enjoyed the process and look forward to interacting more with my fellow bloggers.

Thanks so much for the support and all your amazing comments. I love reading what you have to say and learning more about people from all over the globe.

Take care, stay safe and keep blogging!

Wayne 💛

  1. Good question! I love watching starry sky. It really do calm and it’s Amazingly beautiful! You’ve been away from home for a really long time. Luckily, I got to visit at my mother’s nursing home just under Christmas. (There are no others left in my family anymore.) We hadn’t also met in almost 2 years.I hope you can visit your home as soon as possible!

  2. Congrats on completing this challenge that is amazing! I know how hard it is I have done Blogmas before and thinking of things everyday for a whole month is difficult and it can be hard to feel inspired (unless you plan in advance I guess). But you did amazingly!

      1. If you do want to take part in another challenge, you should check out the challenge I posted in my blog post. It’s by Sandra. The links are in my “Reflecting on Bloganaury post”
        It’s not exactly a challenge, but it’s prompts for the days of Feb and you can write using the prompt however you want!

  3. Congratulations on completing the challenge. I am seriously impressed! I did think about participating but got no further. I’m not very disciplined about blogging so I’ll keep my eyes open for any other challenges I could undertake. When I look at stars, I think they almost have a magical quality that’s quite difficult to explain in words.

  4. In the famous book “Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” by Douglas Adams, there is a punishment for criminals which is called the “Total Perspective Vortex”, whereby the perpetrator is given, via a headset, a fleeting glimpse of their own importance within the context of the entire galaxy, or indeed space as a whole. I think I feel a bit like that when I gaze at a starlit sky: wonderful and liberated yes, but with any sense of self importance humbled.

  5. Congratulations on lasting the month. You don’t often see the stars well in an urban environment. We saw them best from Wolgan Valley in the Blue Mountains – truly spectacular.

  6. I love when people talk about space instead of politics.
    You’re right. I often, enjoy those nights full of stars, it makes me feel wonder of things that cant be explained.
    Everything looks so insignificant with all what is out there in a breeze deep infinite space.

    Btw, congratulations on completing your blogging challenge. You got it. 👍

  7. Yes it has been good. Took me out id my comfort zone. I was getting no likes or comments before doing this. Wasnt sure why. I have learnt so much. Maybe the genre i had been going down wasnt the right fit. Bloganuart gave me an excuse to try something different.

  8. Well done for completing the challenge. Like you I think some of the prompts could have been better. But it was interesting to read peoples responses.. There were some clever ones… Thank you for following CarolCooks2… I look forward to reading some more of your posts 😊

    1. Thanks so much! I really enjoyed the daily blogging but not sure I would have the material or inspiration. I definitely will be blogging more frequently though, maybe once or twice a week. I feel Bloganuary has really ramped up my enthusiasm for blogging to a whole new level. Well done to you also! What are your thoughts on daily blogging?

      1. Daily blogging, I am going to give it a go, but near summer. My plan is to build up a schedule (Monday, recipe; Tuesday, photo; etc) and with that a bunch of drafts that are timed to release daily — but I have a few months to plan. 🙂

        I have to ask, do you like Scooby Doo?

        When I read you handle aloud it sounds like how Scooby Doo would say “loot at you”. 🙂

  9. I think the stars are endlessly fascinating. The stars are the entry into eternity and to the past and future. They are the lives of a thousand different small planetary lights. When you see stars, you are seeing the very distant past. You are seeing things that are no longer as they were. It takes so long for their light to come to us, that some of them are no longer in existence or where they had been when we now see them. I think it makes the stars even more fascinating. You can see the dreams and the higher powers of many different generations. You see the ever changing landscape of this world and many others.

      1. mix of science and imagination. They do mix … if you do it right you can get science to make fact and fiction more interesting. Much like the original Star Trek…lots of mix of science and fiction.
