Hello Blogtober: My First Blogging Challenge

Hello Blogtober!

I am so excited to participate in this year’s blogtober. If you haven’t noticed, I have been having a major blogging slump lately. I got caught up in the overwhelm of starting a new job and getting settled in a different schedule.

It has made it beyond difficult to gather my left over energy to place into writing. I wanted to make it my mission this month to post as many days as I can. If I can’t, then no harm no foul.

But the goal is to get back into the blogging groove and start putting more effort into growing this blog. I believe I can make an amazing community of wellness and inspiration from this platform.

In order to complete this blogtober with my sanity left in tact, I put together 5 goals to accomplish.


I want to try to post at least 3-4 times each week.

It may unattainable to post everyday, but I definitely can make it to 3-4. I have already gathered my topics for all 31 days and if there are any leftover topics, maybe you’ll see them in November!

I want to engage with other bloggers who are participating.

Part of my exit from blogging for the past 2 months has been my lack of engagement with other bloggers. For October, and well hopefully as a habit, I want to try to engage with at least 5 bloggers and read their posts 5-6 times a week.

Include My Own Photography and Video

I have said it before and I will say it again, I absolutely love Photography. I took several photography classes in college and fell in love. I haven’t put in much effort to get back to that creative side of my brain for the past 2 years. So this month is a perfect time to challenge myself to take as many creative photo and video pieces as I can for this blogging event.

Grow, Grow, Grow

I want to grow this blog into a business within the next two years, and to do that I have to start with me. I want to grow as a person mentally, physically, and spiritually this month. As I dive into letting myself be more creative with my posts, I hope that this helps in building up my courage to pursue other goals I have had over this past year ( freelance writing, monetizing this blog, and embarking on my health journey again).

I have let so much fall because of fear of failure, and I say “NO MORE!”

Stay Organized

Another factor in helping me keep on track with this blogging challenge is to stay organized from pre-scheduling posts to keeping track of all my blogging images/graphics to posting on social media on time.
