Oh. My. Goodness.
Yesterday I crossed something incredible off my bucket-list: my blog post was ‘freshly pressed’ on wordpress.
It’s pretty exciting to see my work posted on the front page, but what’s even more amazing is the amount of traffic that my brand new blog has received. And the comments that I’ve been working my way though have inspired me to keep writing.
I had started writing this blog as a 30 day challenge and honestly hadn’t expected anything to come from it. Strangely enough, after only 9 days of writing, I’m receiving a lot of really inspirational feedback. There are plenty of people who are currently unemployed, and even more who have been in my situation before.
So my first monthly challenge has been a pretty decent success. I’m beginning to find my writing voice, and I enjoy making use of my (limited) artistic talents to highlight my ideas. So… now I’m wondering what I should try next.
I’m looking for 12 monthly challenges for 2012.
More writing? Volunteering? Fitness? Learning something new? I’m definitely going to have to think about it…
Have you ever done a monthly challenge? Do you have any ideas for something new I could try? Let me know in the comments :)
