E-mails I get them all day long and some e-mails are truly junk and get deleted immediately, but others end up piquing my curiosity.
Sometimes, I can read immediately and other times, I have to put in my pending folder for a quieter moment, when my gang is occupied, I can read and attend to.
Last Tuesday, I received an e-mail titled, “A Blogging Challenge” from Mary Belle at Secret Obsession. I actually had a few quiet moments to click the link she included and read all about the challenge.
Something about it spoke to me. I have never done one of these challenges before, but thought seriously about doing it.
I had a few issues though, because I do FTSF’s weekly and can’t put that off and I always take Sundays off (to spend time with my family) and only post recaps on Saturdays (again more family time for us), but what I liked was that specifically in the rules, Mary stated we could choose days to skip if we wanted.
I will be honest, because of my thoughts of the days I may need to skip, I really mulled this over to the last minute, but decided to give it a go.
A big incentive is I feel that sometimes I am at a loss for what to write here. I mean my gang gives me great material at times, but once in awhile I do get a bit of writer’s block and am thankful for those who want to contribute in the form of a guest post, too (when this does happen). I mean my life is interesting, but can’t help not always having material 365 days a year that is new and fresh for you. I get my moments and not going to lie to you.
But here there are topics to get me started, so I thought I could use them to help me get a bit more focused this month as far as my blogging and sharing goes. Might give me a break from always being on as far as what I want to share from our lives, but still somehow share tons you may not already know about us, because of the topics given.
Like I said there will be times when I do skip in the form of the weekends (Saturdays and Sundays), as well as I will try to incorporate if I can with FTSF my best (if I can’t I am sorry, but this is just the way it goes I suppose). And if I do have a guest post or two for the month may have to skip those days, too.
This isn’t perfect, but then again neither am I~I am truly a work in progress.
So this is day one and I was asked for at least five reasons why I blog and know I have shared this from a post with nonetheless FTSF. So, if haven’t read why I do blog or just want to refresher, click here.
Might be a bit of a cop out on the first day, but I have totally blogged about this and did not want to repeat myself.
Hope you enjoy my reasons for blogging and may even be able to relate.
And stay tuned tomorrow for some lyric/s from my favorite song, and how it inspires me.
What song do you think is my favorite of all time? You will just have to come back tomorrow to find out!!
