Everyone makes a New Year’s Resolution, but here, today I’m making an Old Year’s Resolution. I will publish something here on this blog every day this month.
I’m pretty new to blogging and do feel like I have a lot to learn. Recently I’ve been looking for ways to hone my blogging chops and a post by AdventureJess over at You Did What With Your Weiner got me thinking. What if I committed to writing and publishing something every day for 30 days? Do I have enough to say? What would I write about? Will I make the time to write every day? What if I’m rushed or “not in the mood” or what if my brain is just empty that day? Could I still do it?
What intrigues me is the name of this challenge – it’s called “30 Days of Imperfection” and the point is to move away from that need for everything to be “just right” and learn to fly free sometimes. It’s a scary concept…will I embarrass myself? What if I publish something inane? Will I bore people? And once I commit will I follow through? What if I miss a day? Well, I guess that’s all part of being imperfect.
After mulling it over for a few days I decided to go for it…So here I am publicly stating that I WILL write something every day for the month of December. It will be a good way to end the year, and give me a great head start and fresh perspective to start off 2013.
My brain has been on overdrive the last few days thinking about topics for posts. I’ve also been giving a lot of thought to my “voice”…who am I and what am I really trying to say here? Why did I start this blog in the first place and what do I hope to accomplish with it? I have a feeling that requiring myself to write everyday will help answer some of these questions. And I’ve started keeping a list of topics for posts…ideas have been popping up at the oddest moments and I’ve tried to note them down before I forget.
I hope you’ll follow me along this journey.
