Write and Roar!! The Ultimate Blog Challenge began yesterday. Part of me thinks I’m nuts to participate again, and part of me is excited and part of me is scared that I won’t keep up (I’ve been pretty bad at being consistent the last two months).
I love to write, though, I NEED to write, and I know you want to read what I have to say (haha funny not funny?) so here I am, jumping in!
My goal for the Challenge is simple — to get back into the daily writing groove. I actually kept writing for SIX DAYS, I think it was, after the last Challenge in July. Not too shabby!
I deleted my MySpace account yesterday. Now, that was a blast from the past. I believe I joined MySpace around 2006 and that is where I first started blogging. Luckily I was able to copy those blogs over to this website a couple years ago when MySpace went through some changes.
While that is when I started blogging publicly, I began writing at age 6 (I’m 48 now) in my little red diary – with lock and key! I became more diligent with daily journaling at age 13.
I am currently writing in my 52nd notebook/Journal. That isn’t counting all my Deep Thought notebooks and Channeling notebooks.
I love notebooks and pens and am always on the lookout for a notebook that speaks to me. The type of paper and college-ruled lines are important as is the flow of the pen.
We will see what comes forth during this Ultimate Blog Challenge. I have a feeling I will be writing/sharing some personal things.
Are you joining in the Challenge? Why or Why not?
Write and Roar!!!
Oh, I have the same fear of not following through… 😉 But a challenge is just the thing to get me motivated. Again.
I’ve also been keeping journals my whole adult life – they’re in storage now, and when we packed up before beginning to travel full-time I read through them. That person I was at 28 or 34 has changed, (as have life circumstances) but it was so interesting to visit her again. There is great power in writing down your words, and sometimes you won’t see it until many years later!
One of the bucket-list items that I found while going through my writing, even before I was married at 19, was to travel in an RV with Rob (my boyfriend then – husband of 34 years now). It only took 30 years, but we did it! 🙂
I wish you joy as you tackle this challenge!
That’s great you are living your dream – even if 30 years later Lori!! I always wanted to travel around the U.S. in an RV – what a great way to see the country!
I am in the Blog Challenge. I joined in order to be consistent and also become a better writer. I remember journaling when I was younger. I just now am getting back into it.
Great post and you can keep up, I know you can.
Only 30 more to go, Jyll!
So glad to see you in the challenge again! I’m looking forward to reading your blog and seeing what you will be sharing. You can bet I’ll be sharing quite a bit of personal things also since I can’t help but brag about my newest great grandbaby. 🙂
Thanks Martha! Congrats on the new grandbaby! I’m excited about the Challenge and look forward to reading more of your blogs as well!
