First off, I may be a crazy person for doing this but I am participating in the write 31 days challenge this year. This challenge is just what it sounds like, it is a challenge to write every day for the whole month of October. This is the first time I have ever participated in a challenge of this type. And it may be a huge stretch seeing as I haven’t posted in the past month due to my huge blogging fail.
My blogging absence over the last month is due to me trying to act like I know what I am doing when it comes to blogging. That could not be further from the truth. After a lot of research, I decided to migrate my website over to a WordPress.org site and self host. Big mistake. I could not, for the life of me, figure out what I was doing. Once I finally got everything set up, I couldn’t log back in to my website. It was such a mess. So, I deleted the WordPress.org site and came back to my free WordPress.com site. Goodness, that was a month of craziness. I wanted to blog for the fun of it and to push myself to be more creative. Self-hosting was NOT fun for me. I was constantly stressed out, so I decided to quit. I don’t like to quit and I certainly don’t like to admit failure.
Here’s to accepting failure and moving on!
In this series I will be addressing myself along with others who may struggle with giving themselves a break. Over the next thirty days I will talk about different ways to find and practice peace. We (me especially) tend to be our own worst critic. So, cut yourself some slack and walk this journey with me through the month of October.
