Blogging Like It's 2011

You may have heard about the writing challenge that happens every October called Write 31 Days. It is a lofty goal, and not one that I am up to doing. However, my friend Bobbi has a more doable challenge over at her blog Revolution of Love. It's the Weekly Writing in October challenge, and it is more my style! 

For several weeks now I have been thinking about how I miss blogging and reading blog posts like in the good old days. I have made it my goal this month to blog like it is 2011: writing about family updates, my knitting, and maybe even a daybook post. I averaged eight posts a month in 2011, so I am going to write eight posts this month or die trying. Don't worry. I am only kidding about that last part!

You may be wondering why I want to jump back into updating the blog more regularly when I have been such a sporadic and uninspiring blogger for the last two years. I have been asking myself that question lately. I walked around for a couple of weeks trying to sort through my thoughts about blogging, until I finally thought, "Duh, you have written about this before! Go read it on your blog!" 

Three posts helped me to remember why I enjoy blogging. Tell Your Story and Eyes on the Good Shepherd reminded me how encouraging and faith building blogs can be when writers are honest about the miraculous and the mundane happenings of life. 
The advice that I shared in Evolution Of a Blogger reminded me to worry less, pray more, and write every day even if you only publish one or two posts a week or month. 

I am excited for October! This post is my second post of the month, so I only have six more to go.

Are you taking part in Write 31 Days or the Weekly Writing in October challenge? If you are please let me know in the comments. I would love to visit your blog.
