i'm completely burned out, but i'm committed to blogging every day even if it means people have to read about the umpteenth stir fry i've eaten this year. mine has been mostly just about making it work, anyway, so i guess it sort of is ok for people to see that even a busy vegan can find time to cook here and there.

but yeah. i'm tired of writing about myself. i think my posts are getting rather boring. but i refuse to quit.

I only have 10 posts so far and there's only 7 days left!
I was going to do a post or two from my phone in New York, but it just didn't happen, so I'm going to try and do some major catchup this week, even though I have noooo time.

I'm continually amazed anyone reads mine when I do it once or twice a week. Now it's become daily, my incoherent ramblings have got increasingly unreadable.

I think I'm going to stay as far away from the computer as possible from my final post of November.

However... keep it up everyone else, I've seen so many fantastic things this month! Things I'd never dreamed about!

In a word, yes. But I started out the month burned out, afraid I wasn't going to keep it up. I've posted every week day so far and I'm really feeling the burn now.

I decided to participate this year because I knew it'd be good for getting my asparagus in gear, in terms of blogging. Also it gets me to spend even more time in the kitchen. I'm telling myself I have to make a public pledge on the last day of mofo to keep it up (as in keep posting regularly and keep about 80% of the content food, not just cheap posts). My blog is supposed to be my hobby.

Add me to the "next year let's do this in October" list. We're planning a pretty scaled down Thanksgiving because we're mofo'd out.

I am also guilty as hell for being a bad blog reader.

I haven't posted since Thursday, but I'm hoping to get my head out of my asparagus and end on a good note. Add me to the Octoberists too please, I think it's easier to mofo without Thanksgiving pressure, which is weird because I thought I would do better with cooking on the brain.

I've had two really crappy posts in a row since we've just eaten leftovers for dinner. Too busy getting ready for Thanksgiving to cook anything interesting. Yesterday's post was a photo of the veggies I'll be cooking for Thanksgiving (boringest post ever!). But I'll make up for it with Thanksgiving since I'm planning an awesome feast.

Another vote for October here!

My posts are happening later and later in the day, but I'm not sure whether that's imminent MoFo burnout or just too much work everywhere else.

I'm loving it being in November. It just works for me.

The thing I like about it being in November is it seems like the internet has more vegan Thanksgiving recipes than ever before and I think that is a wonderful thing because it is a difficult holiday for new vegans.

I am, only because I find it hard to be super entertaining all the time. I peaked about a week ago.

I hope to catch up reading after the holidays.

I'm kind of burnt out, but one of the upsides to blogging so sporadically in the last year is when I don't know what to post about, I go to flickr, look at my food pictures, find one that's a subject I never blogged about, and do that! Tada!

I finish school in March. Any month after that will be aces for me! I do think it is harder the closer you get to holidays for most people. I tried hard to create a lot of new recipes for my blog and make it an interesting read. If you don't plan ahead (like me) it is really time consuming on a daily basis to create, cook and post. Next year I vow to be more prepared.

I guess I'm not so much burned-out as I am overwhelmed. I just started blogging last month, I've been MoFoing every day, and I'm trying to keep up with the TONS of awesome blogs I've discovered. It's a little much for a blogging newbie!!

But you know who is getting burned out? My husband!
"Man, you're always on the computer now!!" But he still reads my blog every day, and that's why I love him.

But now I've got an idea of what to expect next year, and I'll be planning ahead!

I was definitely feeling a little burnt out last week but now the end's in sight & I'm excited to keep blogging after the end of the month.

I didn't pre-write any post or anything but I did have vague weekly plans which definitely helped me keep going. Loads more people are following my blog now & it's been great getting comments & seeing how many people have been reading it every day.

Fred feels this way too. But sadly, he doesn't really read my blog...yet. He did ask me for the link again, so I think he is going to start. The first year he didn't get it and got a bit cranky. Now when I tell him MoFo is coming, he knows the drill.

Ditto for my bf, he's like "MoFo? Again?" haha

I will be happy when it's Nov 30! I do feel a bit burnt out but it's has been fun and challenging!

Totally burnt out. I haven't posted since Monday. And that's not even for lack of something to post about, I've got plenty to post about just gotta... DO it. Blargh!

I'm the flake that got burned out on the second day. That's what I get for not planning. Next year, I am planning the heck out of MoFo.

I've totally given up on reading other blogs now. I can just barely manage to post myself. My reader must be bursting at the seams by now. I'm going to be catching up until June.

Burnt out isn't the right word for me; it's more like I just have no time. I like having a busy work schedule (MoFo fits right in with that since I'm self employed and blog for part of my living anyway), but I'm bummed at not being able to keep up with everyone else's hard work. By the time I wrap up work I'm so tired I can't fathom any more PC time! I'm hoping to be able to spend a few hours going back through the feed to at least partially catch up on the last half of the month because there have been some pretty amazing things concocted from what I've heard!

I've officially hit burnout. The post I wrote last night for today was super boring. I didn't celebrate Thanksgiving yesterday, so at least the weekend celebration will give me some material. I'm not so much sick of posting as I am running short on material to post about.

i'm beyond burned out, but i'm gonna follow through with my commitment and probably shave my head afterward. it's hard to blog when you work FT and have a couple of kids. plus, i think i set the stakes too high doing a 1,000,000 hit goal. i should have just focused on having fun and let it be--but since i'm so obsessed with the numbers because the numbers generate the donation check, i've found myself getting resentful.

so next year i'm just going to keep it simple. i'll find a fun theme and not worry about numbers.
