Day 27- Why are you doing this 30 day challenge?
Well as I've written before, I was kind of nervous about telling people about my blog. I was afraid that people would think it's dumb or that I'm boring and have nothing to write about. I mean after all I am a single woman. It's not like I have exciting adventures to share about things I do with my husband, or important milestones to share in my children's lives. I'm just Ash Pride with a cat. :) How exciting and interesting can I really be?
So, here's how the 30 day challenge came to be. I like to blog surf. I think it's exciting to be able to have the opportunity to tune into people's lives. Some of these people I actually know, but many of them I've never met. I love to look at their pictures and read about whatever they felt was important enough to share with the world. I was randomly clicking through blogs one evening when I came across a woman's blog who was doing a 30 day challenge. After scrolling down a little, I saw where she only made it a few days into the challenge before throwing in the towel and quitting. I read through the topics she was supposed to be blogging about, but realized they really weren't things I'd be interested in writing on. So I Googled 30 day blog challenges and just searched until I found one I liked. And so here I am 27 days into my 30 day challenge.
(I also need to add that my friend, Billy had just wrapped up a 30 day music challenge on Facebook so I knew these kinds of challenges were out there. However, while following the music songs he posted daily, I had never actually considered doing a challenge of my own until I saw that woman's blog.)
Now to answer the question as to why I am doing the challenge. The reason I am doing this challenge is because I love the idea of blogging. I absolutely love writing about my life and the things going on with me. I also really like the fact that after sharing my blog with my friends, they like what I have to say and are tuning in daily to read my words. :) But like I said before, how interesting can a single woman be? With a 30 day challenge it gives me a reason to blog. It gives me great topics to reflect on daily and it really is a challenge. Some days when I look at the topic I'm to write about I feel nervous because I know it's going to force me to sit down, focus, and reflect on various things in/about my life. Many of the topics I've written about over the past 30 days are things I wouldn't have even thought or considered to write about. This challenge gives me a reason to blog daily. And that is why I chose to do this 30 day challenge.
