I Finished My Challenge

Yesterday is the last day of my challenge to post content in my blog for 30 days. I’m excited because I finished my challenge. I didn’t get to do each of the thirty days, but I was able to post many of the days in the challenge. About 80%. I wanted to do 30 posts, but when I look at what life has brought I’m proud of how much I’ve done.

Now I look forward to posting blogs on a consistent basis with lots of great information. That said, I won’t be posting everyday, but will do post consistently. That will be one of my goals.

My Challenge Progress

On my 30 days of content challenge I’m just plugging away. I’m at day 25. Yup, I’m on the home stretch. I’ve gotten just about all of my blogs written and posted. I’ve done 18 posts to date so have a little bit of catching up to do.

My hope is that my blog is helpful for people. Many blogs have a purpose and some a goal. My main goal and purpose is to help others by sharing my knowledge and experiences.

I’ve had fun doing this challenge. I’ve been able to write on a number of topics and that is helping me narrow down what I want to blog about.

I will continue to post and try new things until I narrow down what I see as most helpful. Now I’m posting everyday, or at least trying too. I’ll play catch up over the next few days and will post several more. I do have to tell you how much fun this has been. I’ve gotten feedback from several people and it’s all been positive.

If you’ve been interested in my blog or have a blog or want to give blogging a try, I am happy to help you. Just sign up for my blog via email. Then let me know by private messaging me or sending me a private email and we can talk. I will get in touch with you once I have my challenge done and a few things tweaked.

Once I finish this challenge I will start working on improving my blog on both the content and the visual. I will probably try video blogging too. I’m so excited and hope you’ll sign up on the main page of my blog. If you can’t figure it out, let me know and I’ll put you on the list.

My Blog Challenge

In my blog challenge I am creating content every day for 30 days I continue to post. Right now I’m in the middle of 2 challenges, one from Learn to Blog. That’s the 30 day challenge. And the other is with my niece Rachael. We challenged each other to fulfill a goal. Mine was to get my blog going and hers was to draw a picture of each season. When I saw this 30 days of content challenge from Learn to Blog I knew I had to do this.

I was waiting for the this push to get my blog in gear, the open door to the next path in my life

I accepted a challenge from my niece Rachael to make my blog a reality

I wanted to get my blog on the path to success

The most important being the challenge to my niece Rachael. In live we never know what’s next, but it’s never too late to start anything. I was originally going to write a book. That’s still my intention, but life has taken many turns. It’s hard to say I haven’t done it. But the reality is I still plan on writing my book. It just isn’t happening today. Sometimes we start in one direction and a different path comes along. We need to follow our heart. Everything happens for a reason. Not everyone knows what is in store, but we need to move forward with a goal in mind and know it may change. That is ok. Change it and keep pushing forward.

This was not the post I planned on writing today, but I got a text from Rachael after I told her I was working on my blog and this 30 days of content challenge pushed me forward. When she left today we were texting and she told me she was proud of me. That made my day!

When someone tells you they are proud of you it makes you feel good. When your niece tells you, It’s over the top happiness.

Thank you for your inspiration Rachael!
