What’s your Challenge? I’ll show you mine!

Do you ever feel lazy when it’s time to write for your blog? I do!

Just to poke myself, when I had the chance, I decided to join this challenge in April, just to see if I can do that!

The theory is: post everyday for a full month… Will I be able? I’m not sure 🙁

I’ve put together something like a calendar for this month, but please don’t expect 1500 words posts everyday from me… I’m a woman, I’m a mom but… I’m human, not a goddess LOL

What I hope to achieve with this challenge:

  1. Become more productive and less perfectionist: I’m that kind of woman that procrastinate forever, fixing last details, changing some commas here and there… just because! I don’t really know why I’m doing that… Need to change!
  2. Make some new blog buddies… you never have too many!
  3. Create a daily habit to write… I don’t want to publish a post a day forever, just for this month but, if I’ll learn to write before and read (I mean read the other blogs around the web, surfing and scanning social media = time consuming to the nth degree) later, maybe I can cut my browsing time while gaining some more creative time!

So, today’s topic is:

Challenges! Do you like them?

I often feel inadequate when it’s time to get into the game, and this is a fact!

I’m slowly learning that, maybe, I’m not too bad in making things (and while I’m writing this I feel like I’m showcasing myself without deserving it…)

When you, lovely readers, share my posts or pin my creations, my reaction is:

“What? is she REALLY liking my work? Why? It must be a mistake!”

But, day after day, I’m making some good friends around the web! I’m virtually connecting with so many beautiful ladies and girls from all around the world that are supporting me and making me grow as a blogger and, most of all, as a person, as a woman!

I’d like to thank you all <3

This is one of my present challenges, and I’m feeling stronger day by day, thanks to the power of the web|

    wow, e che sfida!! Non ce la farei proprio a fare un post ogni giorno. Certo, ho la tendenza di farli lunghi, ma comunque anche brevi sarebbe molto difficile. Per quanto riguarda il resto, sembra che tu ed io abbiamo sempre tantissimo in comune! Dai, sei bravissima e la tua energia e volontà continuano sempre a stupirmi! Un abbraccio! 🙂 Lisa

      Hai ragione, Lisa, è davvero una sfida impegnativa!
      Fortunatamente si può programmare il calendario degli articoli come bozze, così appena ho due minuti ci metto mano… ma mi sa che sarà dura!!!
      Un abbraccio anche a te, la mia sorellina “francese” virtuale LOL

      I can understand the feeling prett well!
      Luckily, my pattern is out for testing, at least I don’t have to think (too much) to it!
      Let me know if you managed to print and download everything from my links <3

    Yep, I’m also bad at writing blog posts… or even worse, write them, and then don’t have time to take proper pictures, so they stay there, waiting for some attention and spare time (which I seem to lack these days). I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you, for your challenge! My challenge? Finish all these ongoing projects in a very short time, so I can dedicate some more time to sewing basics for myself and for my daughter! xxx

      I’m trying to make this blog grow, it’s my mission/goal for this 2014!
      I’m putting a lot of efforts in it, it HAS to go 😉
      Thanks for crossing your fingers for me but… how can you finish your projects? Better uncross those fingers LOL

    I love that you’re so modest, but you are really awesome!!! Don’t be afraid of praise; you deserve it:)

      Aww, Amy <3
      You’re the sweetest!
      I know I can always count on you for a good self-esteem injection 😉
      Thank You!
