I mentioned yesterday that I’ve had a particular reason for the increasingly slow trickle of posts recently, and today I’m happy to share with you all what I’ve been working on! Starting tomorrow, I will be linking up with the Write 31 Days challenge, a blogging challenge started by The Nester in 2009, and hosted this year by the lovely Crystal Stine.
For 31 days during the month of October, I will endeavor to post every day and share a wide variety of stories from our recent trip to Europe. I’m so excited, not only to share these stories with you all, but to have a wonderful record (hopefully including some photos!) of our trip here on the blog.
Some of you might remember that I participated in this challenge last year, writing for 31 days about my favorite books, and although I had days last October when I thought I would never finish, in the end, it was my favorite thing I’ve ever done on my blog. This year, my October looks extremely busy for the first week and a half, for sure, so I’m trying to show myself grace and not freak out about it. This is supposed to be fun, right?!
My goal is to write 31 brand new posts, whether I finish on October 31st or not… even the first week of November will still count as “success” in my mind. I’ll need a lot of encouragement, for sure, and I look forward to interacting and seeing comments along the way.
Here’s to a new adventure! If you would like to follow along, please submit your email address to the widget on the top left side of my home page and subscribe to my blog, so you don’t miss anything!
