WEGO Health Activist Writers Challenge Day 30 (I did It!) (World Autoimmune Arthritis Day)

Here is today's prompt, "You made it! 30 posts in 30 days! Today, write a recap of your experience. What was your favorite prompt? Least favorite? What have you learned?"

My favorite prompts are easy! I loved making lists of people to follow, they are the people I follow on Twitter, Facebook and through their blogs. They all inspire me they are strong, kind and funny! 

These two days were my favorites: Day 14 Share the love
                                                            Day 28  Must follow  

My least favorite? I don't really know what to say here, maybe it was the one I found most difficult.
Most difficult: Day 21 Adversity

This entire experience has been a positive one, sometimes my anxiety has been through the roof. There were days I didn't think I would have anything to post. I drove my husband crazy, I'm sure he is glad it's over. Thanks hubby!

It's a good thing I planned ahead and wrote several posts in one day. I had a feeling there would be times I wouldn't have time to write. I'm so glad I did, I would not have finished otherwise. 

I have "met" so many wonderful people through this challenge, I will continue to follow and get to know them long after this challenge ends.

I have learned about a lot of conditions other than mine, I have seen amazing strength and courage. I have been amazed by the talent of the writers.  I have learned to have more fun. Thank you WEGO health for allowing me this opportunity! 

I can't sign off of this challenge without once again reminding you to sign up for World Autoimmune Arthritis Day.  Registration is free, you can buy a pin to show your support. The event is on May 20th, 2013 so you still have time to spread the word as well.

Here is a link to a wonderful article written by a fellow activist, I wanted to share. I think it is amazing!

  1. Thanks Lorna, for linking to the post about WAAD. It was a happy surprise to see it when I read your post.
    Congratulations on a full 30 days of blogging. That is a real feat to do with so much else that goes on in your life. It was most enjoyable to read such a variety of responses to the same prompts.
    Prompts are a big help sometimes. The prompt presents you with a small puzzle and you want to find the most eloquent solution.

    Good accomplishment

    1. No problem Annette! I loved your post! I agree with you on the prompts, now that I have had a break for a day my mind feels like "mush."
      I hope I can remember what to write, without being prompted lol
      Thanks for your comment and kind words as always!

  2. I'm glad to meet you on Linkin with my Ladies. I have DIL and other conditions, so it's encouraging to find other ladies fighting with auto-immunity. God bless

    1. Thank you for stopping by my page Lisa, I'm always glad to "meet" other people dealing with the issues I am as well.
      I hate to hear you have to deal with it in the first place, it's just good to know we are not alone in this battle.
