Let’s face it–I love a good monthly challenge. My planner is littered with the evidence of grand schemes to do x every day in y month, and I like it that way.
Whenever the calendar resets to the first day of a new month, everything suddenly feels a little more possible. This will be the month I stick to my workout routine, meal prep healthy food every week, and do laundry in a timely fashion. Never mind that I think so every month–this one’s the real deal. Right?
So, when I saw some folks posting about something called Blogtober, my interest was piqued. A motivational tool to keep me writing and posting consistently in the month of October? Count me in!
Of course, October is shaping up to be a busy month for me. I have at least one social event on the calendar every single weekend, most of them with 2-3. Where the self-care I try to cram into every weekend will fit, I’m not sure.
It might seem like a busy month is a bad time to take on a “post every day challenge.” And maybe it is. But I look at it the other way around. It’s a great time to give myself that extra push to write and put my words out there, because that way I’ll have a little extra incentive to put the work in when I might let it fall by the wayside otherwise.
Since I decided to participate in Blogtober 2021 on October 1st, I don’t have a grand scheme or plan for my content. There’s no calendar of post ideas here, just the intention to find something to write about on a daily basis. And, since this is a book blog, that something will be book-related. Probably.
On Monday, since I love alliterative content, I’ll be doing a “meet the book blogger Monday” post with a few fun facts about yours truly. Since I’ve already met some new internet friends through the Blogtober tag, I figured it would be a fun time for introductions!
Since it’s Sunday and I’m off to run a 6.6K with a few friends, I’ll keep this post relatively brief! Looking forward to a month of writing, writing, writing, and connecting with you out there in the interwebs!
