With Cool Weather Brings More Writing
Cool weather brings more writing and so I’ve accepted a personal challenge. November 2015 #NaBloPoMo is a writing experience sponsored by @BlogHer, women and men encouraging creative voices in blogging. I was inspired to join after reading a post from BC Becky, a fellow blogger and social media connection. We are both breast cancer survivors. I honestly don’t remember how my first connection with Becky began but it was instrumental in launching my blog in March of this year, 2015. I read her instructional information regarding blogging. It was very beneficial and really motivational as I started my blog about breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. I truly had no knowledge, no idea how to blog. I set a date to open the blog knowing that would push me to actually do it. I had no expectations on its success or outreach but I had high hopes.
Seven months after launching my blog I am happy with what I have accomplished. That being said I know there is much work to be done. So I will accept this new challenge for a twofold purpose. First, I hope to learn a lot from fellow writers. There seems to me to be no better group to learn from than other bloggers. Second, if it serves a purpose and reaches other women, their families and caregivers and educates and informs about the benefits of breast reconstruction awareness, then this new adventure will be worth it.
This will truly be a challenge for me. My goal since launching my blog in March has been to writer at least one blog per week and push for two. Writing daily will be the biggest challenge in blogging for me to date. It’s a push I think I need and am willing to take on.
I plan to remain focused on Breast Reconstruction education but that encompasses much. Healthy eating, family time, personal time, self awareness, exercise, work and the upcoming holidays are all topics that can be tied in to Breast Reconstruction in various creative ways. As a long-time teacher and educator, this is my learning opportunity so I’m grabbing it by the horns.
With that, I begin my daily November blog post. I like the idea that it will expand my ideas beyond the focus of my blog and may just awaken some new ideas that will serve others.
