Thoughts on the LJ Idol experience

The eliminations for LJ Idol
were just posted
and I was eliminated. I wanted to reflect on the experience of LJ Idol. These are just my thoughts.

Obviously, first, I have to say I am disappointed. I was hoping to go farther than I had. But on the other hand, I had feared I would not make it this far. So I don't know whether to just say "I figured", or say "Wow, I made it that far."

I really enjoyed this experience. The questions and prompts really pushed me to write about things I haven't written about before. I learned a little bit more about what I excel in and what I struggle with. I got some feedback, and I had a lot of fun. I don't know what my next steps will be in regards to the contest. Maybe I'll "play the home game", in other words, write about the LJ Idol topics, for fun, not as part of the contest. I may try the contest again next time, I may not. I can't say.

What I do know is that I will be working to write good content, share things, and continue to learn about new topics. I will continue to use this blog to explore all of my life. So, as they would say, stay tuned or subscribed. And thanks for all of the fun!

I'd love to see you play the home game I'm sorry to see you eliminated this week. I'm looking forward to seeing your self-exploration (oops, that sounded kind of dirty). *hugs*

I was following the poll like crazy this morning, and I was so sure you'd missed the bottom two. I didn't take into consideration the limited imunity person. It's amazing to me how intense I get during the voting process though. SMILE!

Well, I'd say, be glad you've made it this far. Think about how many people were eliminated before you. I'm sorry you got eliminated. I think you got a bit unlucky as it came to the tribe that you were in. Keep up the writing, and maybe try for next year.

I have no idea how long I'll stay in myself, but all give it a try ... and we'll see how far I get. I too will be disappointed when I get eliminated, but I try to concentrate on the positives. Keep the chin up.

I am so sorry to see you get eliminated... I have really enjoyed reading your stuff and hope you still drop us some home game stuff if you have time! *grin*

You deserved to get this far... (and go further too, IMO) so feel great about what you accomplished!

Your writing always makes me think, and I'm truly disappointed you didn't make it to the next round. I am proud to have you on my friends list. *HUGS*

Just an idea, I am just going to be wtaching since I just subscribed to the lj idol thing since I love to reflect and write a lot of the time. so, I am hoping just from the topics, I will somehow do my own writings and reflectings. I am not the type to participate in "contests", but I love to write and read other's writings, and you did a phenomenal job. An idea if, you are still going to stay subscribed to LJ idol, still write on the topic being discussed and reflect in your own journal! I hope you will take the idea in to consideration as I know I have found reading friend's journals I am growing and maturing as a person and finding more about myself, especially this semester!

disapointed too
"I was eliminated."

I voted for you, Nickie! Please continue to write - whether there is a contest or not! Ask questions, learn, enjoy writing and know that we all share the struggle right beside you.
