Leap Quota 01


Day 1 of my fourteen day LeapQuota challenge, part of the (I must be mad) Leapster challenge and following the 14 days up to 14 ways strategy… which isn’t a part of the Leapster requirement but I somehow push myself quite hard, even though I know I’ll never quite make it that far…

This quote was the first quote I chose for my first guest-post ever at Snailzpace Daily way back in August 2015. I was given the task of just finding three quotes a day for my blogging friend to use as a resource. I post there, in plain text, nothing fancy, as some days researching the quotes from just one source (Brainyquote.com) can take an hour or more.

The rule I have to work to (at SPD) is quotes from someone born on the day of posting. Originally it was only to feature quotes from writers or poets – but I begged since to widen the field as some days were quite impossible otherwise – and it allows scope for continuing after the first year maybe. I’d like to widen the research net BUT don’t have all the time in the world and an hour a day is my upper limit. I also now include a couple of facts about the date, from wiki.

So, for my quota posts here over the next fourteen days, my aim is to simply to add one of those quotes I already selected for SPD, with the text applied to the same background as above. Maybe I’ll write a small something, maybe I won’t. In most cases I still don’t even know who these authors are or anything about their work – I simply fulfill the given task to find three quotes… one day I’ll stretch myself a little further …
