The 31 Day Blogging Writing Challenge

As I was scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed this morning, I noticed a few of my blogging friends have decided to try something called The 31 Day Blogging Writing Challenge.

It is exactly what it says it is - an effort to blog each day for the entire month.  I know myself and my schedule well enough to know that this will never happen.  Plus, this ain't exactly my first December, ya know?  I am well aware how nutso its going to get!

But, when I clicked over to Cheryl's site and read her posts about the challenge, I decided to jump in.  She stresses that it's OK to miss a few posts, and the whole point is to build habits that will take you into a new blogging year.  It's just a fun way to get a jump start.

So, I'm in! I didn't learn about the Challenge until this morning, and it's already December 2, so I won't make all the days this month, but I sure can aim for 4 or 5 posts a week!  In all honestly, I just fell out of the habit, and this seems like a fun way to get back at it.

Plus, the link up at Cheryl's site is full of new-to-me blogs.  It will be fun to meet some new bloggers, and maybe gain a reader or two, too!

If you are up for it, you can link up a post here.  Let me know, so I can be sure to follow your progress, and we can encourage each other!

And for the sewing part of "Sew Much For Free Time," here's the extent of my sewing today!

I finally got around to putting two star patches on my daughter's karate uniform!  These signify that she's gone through two 12 week "rotations" since earning her Black Belt!  Tomorrow, she will perform with the Demo Team at the graduation ceremony for the newest class of black belts.  So, the patches NEEDED to go on.  It took  four minutes.  Seriously, why do I procrastinate these simple little things?

I've got plans for my next three posts, so please check in often!  I just might make a go of it this time!!    


  1. Tami, I'm so happy to see you're in for the 31 day challenge! A challenge it will surely be as I don't usually post even once per week! We can cheer each other on and hopefully inspire each other some interesting topics! Good work on those patches and congrats to your daughter on earning the Black Belt!

  2. I admit that I leave these little sewing projects on the side forever. I have a pair of pants that need a button sewn on that have been hanging around for about a month. It isn't like I don't have the 5 minutes it will take to sew on that button. Good luck with the 31 days of blogging!
