This November marks my 2 year “blogiversary” In some ways I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for 2 years, but in other ways I don’t remember not having a blog.
I’ve decided that I have so many ideas in my head, but no clear direction in how to go about accomplishing those ideas. So, I’m taking my blog in a new direction for it’s 3rd year of existence. I’m excited about the possibilities and hopefully it will motivate me to take some risks in life and my creativity.
I’m calling this ongoing year long series the “30 days project”
I’ve had this idea for a few months now and I’m excited to actually begin it. This is how it will work:
Each month, I will choose a new “challenge” for myself for that month. I will of course document my adventures on the blog. I will encourage my readers to join me in my challenges if you wish, or you can just read along and live vicariously through me! Some challenges will require me to blog each day about what I’m doing, other months, I may just check in every once in awhile and post an update about how the challenge is going (while still blogging regularly about other projects I’m doing!). Some months, I may do a link party for any of you readers to link up any posts you might have on your blog if you are joining me in the challenge.
But, I need your help! I have a huge list of ideas for monthly challenges, and I know for sure what some of them will be, but I need your help in coming up with ideas for challenges you would like to see me attempt! Some ideas I have (just to give you a sense of where I’m going with this) are…
– come up with 30 different handmade gift ideas in 30 days
– stick to a very limited grocery budget (like $40 dollars a week)
– cook a new recipe every day for 30 days
– creatively give away a set $ amount every day for 30 days
– don’t purchase anything new (except food) for 30 days
– don’t eat anything processed for 30 days (even things like ketchup!)
Those are just some of my ideas. I already know what I’m doing for the month of November, but I will keep that a secret until November 1st!
So, do you have anything in mind you’d like to see me try to do for a month? Maybe it’s something you have already set as a goal for yourself. Send any ideas my way! Like I said, I already know of some things I’m doing for sure, so I can’t guarantee I will do your idea…but I will try keep an open mind.
Oh, and stay tuned for a special 2 year blogiversary giveaway coming soon!
