When I signed up for the 31 Day Blogging Challenge my main objective was to train myself to write every day. I found so much more. The challenge leader has provided daily support, encouragement, and tips that I look forward to reading every morning. The challenge also includes reading and commenting on other participant's blogs. I have found some wonderful bloggers and am thoroughly enjoying sharing this process with them.
I think sometimes when we take on a challenge we may anticipate some of what we will gain, but often, we learn so much more than we ever expected. If we can keep that in mind as we begin challenges maybe it will push us a little harder?
Twelve days into the challenge, I have already topped my previous high monthly views. For those bloggers who have posts with views in the millions, the activity on my blog may not be earth shattering. For me, it is truly inspiring.
If you have a blog or want to start one, I recommend signing up for the next challenge. If you do, let me know so I can cheer you on!
