Pish Posh Challenge - Week 8 - I DID IT!

This is the final posting for the Pish Posh 8 Week Challenge. Pish challenged her readers to choose something about themselves that they wanted to change and then start doing it. Whether weight loss, breaking a bad habit, starting a good habit or whatever the case may be, she challenged us to better ourselves and check in each week as we write about our experiences.

Personally, I wanted to challenge myself as a writer and decided to bump up the number of posts to my blog. I vowed to post at least five times per week. Some weeks were harder than others, but I met that goal. This is my 41st post since starting the challenge two months ago.

This is the first time I have actually accomplished the goal of the challenge. The last time I participated in her challenge, I failed miserably. So, I don't know what is supposed to happen now. Did I win? Is there money involved? Will I become famous? I'm sure I'll find out.

Each week of the challenge, I linked back up to Pish's site and showed the links for my posts that week. Here are my posts for this week:

Better Than Any Sleeping Pill
Everyone was amazed that I slept through my neighbor's house burning down a few months ago. As it turns out, I won't even wake up when it's my own house.

Danger Mouse Must Sign A Release Form
I experience the ridiculousness of bureaucratic red tape and fill out the dumbest form I have ever seen.

Maybe I Should Stick With Books
Best Buy holds me hostage for over an hour just because I want to buy something in their store. A story of atrocious customer service.

Snot A Good Day
I have been slowly getting sick all week and I use the venue of my blog to whine about it.

It has been a lot of fun and I plan to continue posting at this pace. At least for the near future. I have a job that allows me to be able to do so and it has become a habit. 

Thank you to those of you that have offered the encouraging words. It is appreciated. Congratulations to all the other participants of the Challenge as well.


  1. Congratulations! I can't believe the eight weeks are already up but that might be because I just sat back and watched everyone working so hard to meet their goals. It's kind of amazing, to see how determined people became with a challenge and to hear about how successful it all turned out.

    1. I don't know about everyone else, but I had a great time with it. Thank you.

  2. You TOTALLY get to be rich and famous now! I think you can quit your job and get paid for speaking gigs about how awesome you are and how "you too can blog every day!" to sell out crowds. Can I have your autograph?

  3. Congratulations. This is quite an accomplishment. I'm sure this exercise has stretched your writing muscles.

  4. Awesome, congratulations! I'm impressed. I need another eight weeks!

  5. Congratulations on hitting your goal!!

  6. Good for you Brett! Stepping up my posts per week count is something that I'd like to focus on in the very near future. I keep remembering what you said earlier. There's always something to write about. I'm looking forward to feeling like that again.

    It seems we've switched places on this challenge. Last time I did so well, this time it's me whose failing miserably. I'm still trying though.

    1. It was a flip flop. I need to get back on a fitness regimen.
