Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
As many of my regular readers know, I’m a pretty busy person. In addition to my beautiful family and my thriving The WM Network and will soon publish my first book–a guide on websites for freelance writers., I’m also the co-founder of
And while all of that makes me very happy, one of my other passions–this blog and the mission it serves–is sometimes regretfully neglected. This is why I have decided to participate in (yet another) 30 day blog challenge here at In Pursuit of Fulfillment.
I attempted one of these challenges in June, and while I did quite well for about the first half of the month, a family vacation and certain work deadlines prevented me from fully committing to the last half. Okay, “prevented me from fully committing” is a bit of an overstatement–I just chose not to finish out the challenge because I wanted to be on vacation with the family. 😉
Of course, I could beat myself up about this, but that’s not how I roll. Instead, I’m giving it another shot–this time with the Ultimate Blog Challenge that begins today. See, during the first half of June when I actively participated in the challenge, I found that the benefits were many.
First, I met many new friends and made new connections–many of whom I still communicate with on a regular basis.
Second, I was forced to focus on the topic of personal development, which is something that I’m passionate about and that I really NEED to focus on more often.
Third, I felt motivated to keep the blogs coming, which of course didn’t hurt my traffic one bit. 🙂
While I didn’t announce the challenge in June, I am doing so this time because I want you, my wonderful readers, to help hold me accountable! I’ll be here every day in August with a new post. This is going to be fun!
