MOFO is such a fun challenge. It can be so hard to find the time to post every day. I am curious how everyone did this time around. I can't wait to be able to kick back and read many mofo blogs.

I think i've missed three days? It was harder than I thought with working on the MoFo blog too, so some days I was just too tired.

Assuming a meteor doesn't hit me between today and tomorrow evening, I'll have hit all 31. I think I did every day last year too but some of them I wrote ahead of time and stuff. This was really every single day as they were happening!

I lost steam and stopped blogging less than halfway through. My course schedule caught up to me. Of course now that it's after midterms and I have time, MoFo is over.

Assuming I get home in one piece to make one last thing tonight, all 31! I'm going out for dinner tomorrow night and I'm going to bask in the joy of having someone else cook for me.

I was so close to hitting 31 and then I got hit with a nasty ear infection this weekend that had me lying in bed with a migraine for 2 days so I missed the 29th and the 30th. Boo!

I failed big time. I posted 16 times, and a lot of those were just filler. I really wanted to get into it this year, but my work schedule didn't leave me much time or energy for cooking.

I just scheduled my last one for tomorrow. Technically I hit all 31 plus an extra, but unfortunately I lost steam the last week and sometimes posted no substance and just giveaways. I think that's kind of a fail, so the jury is out. I am exhausted, but I love the community and I loved reading everyone's posts. The themes were so fun.

I had no excuse not to reach 31 as I have practically no commitments right now, but I still missed 3 days. One from sickness and two from overwhelming lethargy. Blogging lengthy reviews everyday is not really something I want to continue, but maybe every other day...?

We cleared Monday-Friday but I feel like I cheated because PandaCookie and I shared the task, and on top of that she blogged what I think was seven days a week at her own blog. But I did really love being involved this year!

I voted assuming I finish today's post (which I will), but I'll have done all 31. Quite a feat, since whenever I'm at the computer, my kids are climbing all over me, begging to watch 'Cars' and trying to type.

20. 21 if I post today. I have lost steam this last week. It was hard find a balance that worked and so mofo got neglected.

Assuming I make it home tonight and don't get too distracted by all the trick-or-treaters, I'll have posted all 31 days! There were a couple days of filler but whateves.

I have two to three posts to do today to finish my theme because I took a little break from something new on mofo humpday and reposted something from a couple years ago that most people hadn't seen. But assuming my day goes as planned and the recipes in my head taste like I expect them to, I will have completed all 31 days and my whole theme by the end of the day! Whew...I think tomorrow night I will have popcorn for dinner.

31 on the Panda With Cookie blog. Rolling out with the Klaus Nomi Tart.
And extra to help out Gabrielle at the VOTM and a few round ups on the main mofo blog.

I did so bad at commenting. I thought I could scroll through every day, open up the ones I wanted to comment on, and slowly weed out blogs I didn't want to read. What ended up happening is me pretending that my google reader didn't exist and even getting behind on the blogs I read regularly. Laaaaaame.

I think it averaged at about every second day -- not as many as I'd hoped, but definitely more often than I was before. I do think it helped me get into a more-regular blogging groove.

I'm really impressed that so many of you did it daily!

I had a hard time keeping up and coming up with ideas every night. I flaked out on my theme but I have high hopes for next year!

I've been analyzing my site statistics and I have a good idea what draws the most views so hopefully next time I will be able to attract lots of readers!

I managed to blog on all 31 days (same as last year) & twice on one day! I pretty much managed to stick to all of my themes too. I've loved reading so many blogs & I can't wait to finish catching up!

I hit 31 which I expected but I wanted to stab my eyes out by cooking/baking from the same damn book for 31 days. I'm considering only drinking tea in Nov in protest. Or making a cake tonight, NOT from the same damn book.

I posted every day, but ugghh! my last recipe to complete my theme was a major fail. Trying to come up with something in the next couple hours, but I posted that I'd just have to owe those recipes to my readers.

I love all of your comments. It is a tough challenge. I made all 31 (for the first time), but a couple of days I varied from my theme to post some yummy restaurant reviews. No matter how many posts you ended up doing, it is a great way to get you psyched about blogging.

Now, like many of you, I just want someone to cook for me and pamper me. Ha ha. Actually I have to keep at the cooking and keep motivated. I am going to work very hard in the next couple of weeks to put together a table of contents and proposal for a book. Fingers crossed!!!

I really hope to have a chance to read others blogs I had almost no time to comment on others' stuff and there was some great stuff out there. Can I award a Liebster after MOFO? I really wanted to do it, but just couldn't find the time to find blogs with under 200 followers. You guys have a lot of fans!!!
