This month there is a blogging challenge at 2Peas Refugees. A number of scrappy people are aiming to reach 21 blog posts for the month. Head on over and check out their blogs! My goals are not quite so lofty. I will be happy with 8 new posts. I know, I know. I’m not exactly reaching for the stars.
Blogging is definitely a stretch for me. Neither scrapbooking nor writing fit into my natural talents. Putting words together onto a page to form relatively coherent sentences is sometimes painful. So, you know, starting a scrapping blog makes perfect sense. I bet you are dying to ask. Why in the world would I begin blogging? I had someone encourage me to try it.
I decided about a year ago that I was not going to let my fears and anxieties get in the way of trying new things. As a result I have a new job, a new side job, and a new blog. It’s made life stressful, and interesting, and stressful… did I already say that? Yet, I don’t regret jumping in head first and giving it a whirl. I feel good about the decisions I have made.
Speaking of that new job, I need to go get some work done. It involves writing a speech (ugh, more writing) that I am giving at a national conference. Maybe I need to rethink this trying new things philosophy.
