A September challenge

I'm blogging this #blogfor30

When I started this blog late last year, I had a clear vision for what I wanted my space to be. I had looked online when Poss was first diagnosed, and struggled to find anything I could relate to. The stories weren’t ours.

I was determined to share an insight into our life with Poss, trying to move away from the stereotypical view of what Aspergers is and show she is so much more than her diagnosis. Share our story. Maybe help someone like us.

What I couldn’t have predicted was how much I have been helped.

The community of bloggers around me, their stories, their writing – it all inspires me. Inspires me to be a better parent, a better friend, a better writer and a better blogger.

I read stories I relate to, other writers who soothe me with their words, as they tell how they overcome challenges and share tales I relate to so closely, they could be happening in my own living room.

I have found myself wanting to write better, blog better and evolve my little space. And like any skill, I have a feeling this writing thing only improves with practice and a little bit of discipline. So this month, I am taking on a challenge.

Alongside some others (Katrina and Kellie), I am going to try to blog every day in September. In an attempt to not only improve my writing, but also interact with new people and discover new inspirations at the same time.

There is no fancy button or link up, nor hard and fast rules. It’s a personal challenge. One we are all doing for our own reasons. No-one is going to be disappointed in you if it doesn’t work. So it makes it easy for you to join in and come along for the ride.

Simply leave a link below letting me know you are joining in. Or if you are on twitter, tag your posts with #blogfor30 and we will find you.

Now off to plan some posts… nothing like being organised!

  1. Good on you! I don’t think you can blog every day and not get wonderful things from it. I’m all for a challenge, but not this one this month… I was thinking of doing it in October so perhaps we can tag-team!

  4. I want to do this. My biggest problem is just doing it. My own fear of failure stops a lot of things for me. But maybe this is something I should try.

    • I know that circumstances might prevent you from doing this, but I am thinking of you and will be sure to check in and see how you are going. Much love xx

  5. Oh I wish I had been more timely & organised! I deserted my old blog months ago but missed it so much I just started a new one (as in 2 posts new). Is taking some getting back into it but would loved to have jumped on. If only I saw this 19 days ago! #blogfor10 maybe? LOL

    • It’s never too late Carly! I think that the lovely Kate from Our Little Sins is planning on doing this for October. Might be worth hooking up with her and we can pass the baton over!

  6. Great challenge!

    On my blog I have also set myself a goal – which is three times a week for the next year! Not as ambitious as yours (every day), but certainly ambitious enough, if I can keep it up for a year. Would love to touch base and compare notes, to see how we are doing. Keep each other honest, so to speak:-)My blog is at suzannekiraly.com.au . What do you say?

    • Hi Suzanne – thanks for dropping by! This was from last year… but you know what… I’m considering doing it again! I’m going to drop by your blog and either way, I’ll be sure to offer you encouragement!
