Made. It. It may have taken me 45 days but I didn’t let the imperfection stop me and it still feels good to have accomplished it. Plus I had a newborn! So I’m okay with it.
Here are my thoughts as I conclude this challenge and reflect back on the last 45 days.
What I Learned
Writing every day is a lot, but it really helps keep the rhythm going and the creativity flowing.
Family issues, having a little one, and perfectionism are my biggest challenges when it comes to writing consistently right now.
I want to keep writing!
It’s okay that what I put out right now isn’t amazing or perfect. I know it will get better with time, just as I’ve seen improvement over the last 30 days.
What I will continue & what will change
Writing regularly. It probably won’t be daily (unless I get stuck and just need to), but I will work on blogging daily. Which means some days I will be writing and other days I’ll be editing, finding images, creating pins, and working on marketing.
I’m going to aim for 2 blog posts a week.
I won’t work to make my 2 posts perfect, but I will work to make them longer, more thorough, and more helpful to others.
I won’t limit myself to what I right about. A niche will come. I’m just going to have to trust that. What’s important right now is that I’m writing. Before I wouldn’t write because I couldn’t figure out my niche.
I will start doing more crafts/diy. These are so fun and I’ve only done a couple of them. I really want to dive into this more.
I will continue to write about life. Maybe people read it and maybe they don’t. But I think it’s important to write about and be open with!
I will develop other parts of our website. Including a portfolio of all our custom furniture builds! We’ll see what else – I need to put more thought into.
I’m so so glad I did this challenge. I really think it was the catalyst I needed to get back into the blogging world. I’m excited to see where things go from here and hopeful I will be able to stick with it.
Will be back with more soon!
