As we approach the end of another 30-day challenge, I’m happy to report that, albeit, it was challenging, it was nowhere near as hard as I thought it would be. With only a few days left, I’m now asking myself the question, could I blog every day?
Recognising the pattern
It’s funny because this is what usually happens. Along with my first Body Experiment back in 2015, or Reading More in 2020, what starts off as a simple challenge for 30 days can quickly become part of the practice in day-to-day life.
It’s simple, for me, after doing something repeatedly for 30-days, I’m forming the habit of doing it. And now, it’s become a part of my morning routine, which in reality doesn’t take me that long. It’s also become a creative outlet. And that’s a positive thing.
The more I do it, the easier it feels and the more I can see the benefits of continuing to do it.
Could you blog every day?
So I get it, it’s not for everyone. A lot of people have a long list of excuses or reasons why they couldn’t do it. Fair enough. But if you don’t want to do it, you should simply say that. The question here is COULD YOU, not do you want to.
Answering the COULD question is simple. YES, YES YOU CAN!
If I can set myself up to write a short blog post every day, then you could definitely do the same thing.
Remember, you can simply write for your own benefit if you don’t “believe” that anyone else will want to read your content. I did the same thing when travelling in 2017, and I created a series of vlogs called Unplanned As Always. I created those videos for me to be able to look back on at a later date and remember what I had done.
If others find it and watch it, all the better, but it’s not the main reason for creating the content in the first place.
Could I blog every day?
Yes, I believe I could, and I think I might. The habit has been forming throughout this month. I now know that it doesn’t take HOURS. It won’t be a huge pain. This challenge has taught me that I can create, with relative ease, a piece of content each and every day.
Once again, my 30-day challenge has helped me to improve a couple of skills. In this case, creativity, ideation, writing, blogging, uploading and sharing content.
By starting something, you’ll quickly discover that a lot of the reasons not to do it simply aren’t valid.
What have you always thought about doing, but never started because you think it will be too challenging? Let me know in the comments and let’s see if we can find a way to create a 30-day challenge that would help you conquer it.
