Today is August 31st, which means that it’s the very last day of the #31WriteNow Blog Challenge. With the inclusion of this current post, I’ve blogged a total of 24 days out of the month. (Not too bad, huh?) It was a difficult run, with many stumbles along the way, but I’m proud of myself for not giving up.
This challenge has taught me a great deal about personal discipline. Early on in the month, I was suuuper motivated to write a new post everyday, but towards the middle, I was really dragging my feet about it. It got to a point where doing almost anything else seemed more interesting or enjoyable than writing. Even so, I pressed on and kept blogging (regardless of how short, weird, and downright dumb many of these forced posts would turn out).
Not only was this challenge good for me on a personal level, but it was amazing to breathe new life into my blog, which had definitely been falling by the wayside previously. And because of this, my blog’s followership has more than doubled over the course of this month! I’m really grateful for what I’ve learned and gained from participating in the #31WriteNow Blog Challenge. I definitely hope to continue blogging regularly, though with school in full swing, it might be on a weekly or possibly bi-weekly basis.
So, while this is the end of the challenge, I feel that the challenge was just the beginning of my journey to becoming a more serious and consistent blogger. I do hope you’ll stay along for the ride!
