31 posts in 31 days…and I loved it!
I am so grateful to have been a part of this group and this challenge. At first I really didn’t know what I was going to get out of something like this. I thought mostly it would be about me working towards finding my own voice, reading some interesting blogs and seeing what others do and what I can learn from them. There were days when I was wondering what I’d gotten myself into but the emails with ideas and tips and the support from others really pulls you through the slumps.
All of what I hope for happened.
And a few surprises.
I met some amazing people. Can you say met when you just talk on line? Yes, I think so. I’ve seen some blogs that just blew me away, ones I probably never would have otherwise. I’ve learned more than I could even share; and not just about blogging either.
One of the most important things I’ve learned? That I can just be me. The authentic people in this challenge helped me relax and write what I really love to write about in a voice that is really me. It’s tough when just starting out. Reminds me of high school English class where you have to write a certain way if you want to get good marks. There was this feeling of “am I doing it right?” that has been holding me back and being part of this group has really helped me realize that when I am doing it right when I am being myself.
Looking forward to the next one already!
Now I have to find two more challenges for myself for February in keeping with my intentions for 2011. Any ideas?
