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!
