So this is the blogging project I’ve been hinting about. Unlike my previous blogging projects, this is more for my benefit than yours. How does it work? Simple. This is my personal NaBloPoMo. I will be writing a post every day for the month of July.
However, your participation in this project will be very encouraging for me. No, you don’t have to blog every day for this month – that’s my task! I would really appreciate it if you can show encouragement for my personal project with a pledge of your own. It can be anything – maybe you can encourage me by commenting on all 31 posts I’ll be writing this month. Or you can write a post about what I’m doing in your blog. Or you can ask me one question each day to help me blog about something. Or if you want to, you can blog for the entire month with me! Though I really don’t recommend it. 😆 I never dared to take this challenge even when I was much more into blogging before!
So why am I doing it now? I know this is going against the whole ‘blogging without obligation’ mentality, but I feel I need to push myself. At the recent workshop I went (which I felt did not help me much for the kind of writing I do at work) the facilitator shared a story about what her editor told her when she was starting out as a journalist. She said that between a rubbish piece of article and no article at the end of the day, her editor preferred the former because that way there will be something to work on, unlike the latter because you basically did not get anywhere with your writing.
I agree with my facilitator’s editor’s words and so this is me putting myself to the test. I will probably be facing writer’s block every day, but in pushing myself to write something every day for 31 days, it is hoped that the more I write, the better I will get at it and in the process, rediscover my passion for blogging.
Please support and encourage me! 🙂
