of the 30-Day Blog Challenge, 2011
|The 30-day Blog Challenge, Year 3; Big Apple Edition II.|
When started the 30-day Blog Challenge here at Ny Minute Now back in 2009, I was actually in Denver, Colorado, temporarily living with my mother and preparing for the wedding. I had my weekly newspaper column to keep me busy, along with other writing and editing assignments, but I needed to commit to something I could do that would produce results as I made my way into the world of "pro" blogging. And, to do the latter, I needed to blog on a more regular basis.
What usually happens when I become preoccupied with other things is that the blogs are the first to get pushed to the backburner. At the time when I did the first 30-day Blog Challenge though, I wasn't working full-time, hence, the need to somewhat structure my day by way of a self-imposed, strict writing schedule. However, in the middle of the second round in 2010, I had started a new job, so that was truly challenging. I had also just moved back to New York at the time, so I named last year's series, the Big Apple Edition.
So, here I am, on my third year of doing the Challenge. (In an ideal world, I would be blogging everyday anyway, anytime of the year. One can dream, right?) I hope you'll have fun reading the posts as much as I hope to enjoy (and discipline!) myself writing them.
