I didn’t really know what I was getting into when at the beginning of the month, I decided to take the 31 Days blogging challenge by The Nester. The past days have been both a lot of fun and challenging. It’s not easy to come up every day with a new article and topic to write about, to find images to illustrate the article. Because blogging does take time, yes really it does. I have missed a day or two and have tried to post twice some days to catch up but that’s proving to be quite difficult. I struggle most on weekends because I get to spend the days with my family and don’t want to disappear behind the computer for hours.
What I am finding the most interesting and surprising is the way I write my articles and how the language and tone I use is evolving. Since I have to write an article each day, I spend a little less time writing pretty sentences and I am allowing myself to use a tone that is maybe more the one I use in my daily life. And this is a lot of fun! That tone is certainly more direct and sometimes ironic and teasing. I am quite the introverted type and as a child was always the silent one; Yet I don’ believe that this is who I really am. Pushing myself to write on a daily basis seems to work as some kind of therapy to release and to let my true personality speak out. I’ve always know that I couldn’t please everyone, I am terribly pragmatic about certain things, but there is difference between knowing it and finally accepting it. I looks like I might be on the way to finding my true voice.
For this, I am already grateful that I have taken this challenge.
