As the Write 31 Days writing challenge approached, I was awaiting it with mixed feelings. It comes around every October, and I’ve participated several times (you can see those series here, here and here). I love participating in it, challenging myself to write on the blog for 31 straight days, and to cover one specific topic in more depth than I might do otherwise. I rarely hit quite all 31 days (unless I run into November ;)), but I always do better than I would have had I not participated in the challenge.
Obviously since I’ve been working outside the home, regular posting is more difficult…and despite my best intentions of getting work done on the blog THIS week, I am battling a cold because I had a few bad nights of sleep last week and just didn’t take as good of care of myself as I should have. I’m pushing through, but beyond the work day there’s not a lot of energy or focus left at the end of the day!
I was excited to learn, though, that they’ve added an Instagram micro-blog category, and I thought, THAT I can do! (I think so, anyway. ;)) My plan is to post on Instagram daily with a mini-post, and supplement that at least once every week (shooting for twice) with a full post on the blog. I’m working on my topic and will hopefully be ready to share that next week, but based on the survey I did this summer, I think you’re all going to like it!
As for now, I need to eat breakfast and get off to work! Have a great day!!!
