One of the most challenging things about setting up somewhere else is that so much is different and you are so out of your comfort zone. It takes awhile to get going. But as with change, challenges are also opportunities. And they can be golden if one has the courage to do it.
So what am I getting at? I’ve just discovered a concept, totally unknown to me before. Are you ready for it…drumroll please…a BLOG-A-THON! I was surfing and came across a site devoted to independent writers dealing with the digital media. Word Count is a site run by Michelle Rafter, a reporter, editor and blogger (to quote her site) and its a great resource for writers, including bloggers. I’m just discovering all the great articles but I’m most excited bout the Blog-a-thon.
Basically it challenges bloggers to write a post everyday for a month. And it starts in June. Now I’ve never (yet) managed to blog 7 days a week. And as I look back at my previous posts, I realize that I’ve sometimes let days, even weeks go by without nary a word. (This week is slightly different as I’ve been pretty chatty lately.) But I like the idea of challenging myself to sit down and write every day. Not long ones mind you, but a thought or line everyday to you my friends and readers.
What’s holding me back? Mostly fear that I won’t be able to do it. I don’t want to start something and not finish it. But the more I think of it, the more I like this idea of a blogathon.
What do you think? Should I go for it? I sure would appreciate your thoughts on this.
