31 days of change
It is said that to give a habit a month, and you can keep it forever. I don't know if I believe that, as I've started many things and stuck with them for a month only to have them fizzle after awhile longer. But I think it's a worthwhile endeavor, none the less.
Last year a group of bloggers got together to do 31 days of blogging. Here are some of the topics/bloggers that committed to writing for the month of October:
:: 31 Days to Stress-Free Entertaining from
at The Reluctant Entertainer Sandy
:: 31 Days to a Better Photo from Darcy at Life With My 3 Boybarians
:: 31 Days to More with Less from Jen at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam
:: 31 Days of Autumn Bliss from Melissa at The Inspired Room
:: 31 Days of Living Simply from Emily at Remodeling This Life
:: 31 Days of Grace from Emily at Chatting at the Sky
:: 31 Days to an Inspired Table from Kendra at My First Kitchen
Some of the topics were of interest to me and I followed along with Jen, Melissa and Emily. The others I admit I never read. Well, the group is doing it again this October, with the overall theme being 31 days of change. There is an interesting caveat they've offered this time, and that is to allow other bloggers to link to this party.
I'm seriously considering doing this. I think a commitment of a blog a day for a month would be good for me. I've thought about topics, and in doing so, I've thought about what I personally would like to work on. Afterall, I don't have very many readers (mostly just friends and family) and I blog primarily for my own creative/emotional outlet, whatever that means. Anyway, the topic I'm considering is something that I know very well, but it is also always elusive...and that is creativity and ways to expand our creative souls. What do you think? Should I do it? I suppose you'll find out if my courage, time and patience matches by ideas and desires come October 1 when you will or won't see my first post of 31 days.
