The (Ultimate) Blog Challenge
Somewhere and somehow, I heard about this blog challenge a couple of weeks ago. And a love a good challenge so...
I know very little about why this is considered the ultimate blog challenge. But from the looks of this little sheet I printed off to keep track of my progress, it looks do-able, while still challenging. Basically, during the month of January, I am to post a new blog every single day.
That's a lot. But it's not so overwhelming that it sounds out of the realm of possibility.
I've written 50 songs in 90 days several times through another challenge, which wasn't even labeled ultimate. So I feel like I got this. There's no reason I can't, and so, there's no reason not to do it.
What I know for sure, is that if you don't practice something regularly, you start to get rusty. And fortunately, the opposite is true as well: If you practice something regularly, you will get better at it. I will get better.
Do I have enough interesting things to say over the course of 31 days straight? To be honest, probably not. But this will help me "re-discover" my writing voice, as I'm a little out of practice these days.
And what better time of the year to re-establish an important habit?
So here goes. Starting January 1. A new post for this blog every single day. 31 days straight.
