31 Day Blog Challenge!

I just saw this 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge in a Facebook group I'm in and I just had to jump at the opportunity to join in! I used to blog a lot. But my frequency in blog posts has definitely died down over the years. Even though it's not something I've really given a lot of time to, it is something that I really want to get back into!

This challenge is the perfect opportunity to get back into the habit of blogging...


The gist of the challenge is to blog everyday for 31 days... doing it during December, potentially the busiest time of the year, means that if I can make it happen now, I can make it happen anytime of the year. (I'm not planning on blogging on Sundays.)

I don't really have a plan about what I'll blog about, but I'm excited to explore the possibilities and hopefully find my voice again.

My first thought is that I hope that I'll be able to figure out how to finally settle in to the things I've been wanting to share but have lacked confidence in expressing. I've actually been thinking about this a lot lately, how I feel like when it comes to me and social media, it's like a roller coaster ride. At times I probably share too much of the struggle and real life experiences, and then I go for months feeling very introverted and closed off, not wanting to share anything at all. I think the problem is that I can't decide how I want to use social media as a tool. Sometimes I feel like it should be all business, but I just can't do that....It's not who I am. So then I don't know how to balance the business with real life and still be professional and not just some crazy lady. lol. I'd prefer to find a more consistent and comfortable spot, wherever that happens to be on the spectrum, so we'll see! The struggle is real!

Last night I was talking to my husband about something, telling him that I felt like a little fish in big waters. He told me the nicest thing. He said, "of all the things I know about you, one is that you are really good at adapting." It doesn't sound like a compliment, but to me it really is! It really boosted my confidence that I can tackle any challenge. So maybe *forcing* myself to blog everyday, will be just the push I need to adapt to my personal challenges that I've been facing when it comes to blogging. I'm rather excited! 

So here's to blogging!! If you want to join in, be sure to hope over to Muppin.com for all the details as well as to see who else is participating!

Now to go take a quick nap so I can hopefully get over my cold!! ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!
