Yup, there you have it. I’m starting a 30-Day Challenge of blogging every day. Starting – today.
I have never met Jitsuko in real life- she is one of those “Facebook only” friend. I can’t remember when, but we have some mutual friends and we got connected on FB. I see her updates every day and I was pleasantly surprised we have a lot of similar ideas and tastes and I always enjoy her posts.
Few weeks ago, she has completed 30 Days No Beer challenge. I don’t drink beer much, let alone other alcohol beverages when I’m at home, but still I don’t think I can do 30 days without any cocktails/wine! Nevertheless, I am very happy she finished the challenge and congratulated her on her accomplishment.
Now, she has started a 30 day challenge of blogging every day(Page is in Japanese). And this inspired me. If you are a blogger, I’m sure you can relate. I get lazy, or offline life gets busy, etc etc… so I thought I’d follow suit and do my own 30 day challenge.
Now, before I start, I had to think about basic rule. I have three blogs – here, and two other Japanese blogs. (One personal/social media related, and one for my business.) Initially, I thought about updating at least one of the three blogs every day…but I tweaked it a bit and made it a little harder. I am going to update at least one blog in each language-so I will be updating here(my only English blog) every day, and one of the two Japanese blogs every day as well for the next 30 days.
No big reason of starting other than the fact Jitsuko inspired me. No anniversary, no birthday, no beginning of the year. I also know this is not at all a new idea. Many people have done similar challenges. But that’s OK. This also resonates with me after talking to my friend Mike Vardy about his new upcoming book Front Nine.
I honestly have no cofidence that I am going to complete the 30 days. But if I fail, so be it. I am actually nervous and scared if I can do this – my life is pretty crazy already and not sure if i can find the time to do 2 blog posts a day – but only way to find out if I can is, to do it.
