30 Day Blogging Challenge: Wk 1

So I started a 30 day blogging challenge and decided to invite some of my friends. Surprisingly a good number of them joined, and it has been an interesting journey to “Day 30”.

At first I bothered about how I was going to write every day. Then I remembered that I had lots of undeveloped drafts that would take me at least halfway. It’s just the first week and I have picked a lot of positives from this challenge.

  1. You can’t know if they would like it if you do not ASK
  2. The moment you start, then you can be more sure to reach your destination
  3. If you are willing, you will eat the good of the land (which includes everything that requires willingness to achieve)

Midway into the challenge a mini tragedy struck. I got swarmed by work and missed two days. Then I slumped into a block. I had to apply what I learned from Leo Babauta – shifting the goal of building or changing a habit to make it less impossible.

With this, I shifted the goal post from writing one post everyday to writing 30 posts in 30 days. By doing this, I’d have to write more than one post on some days to meet the goal.

I want to say a big thank you to the members of the group who have joined me in this challenge.

The good thing about this challenge is that it wasn’t tied to any topic or theme. There were posts on fashion, automobiles, football, technology, personal experiences, anniversaries, speaking better English, etc.
