This month I signed up to participate in National Blog Posting Month (aka NaBloPoMo) http://www.blogher.com/blogher-topics/blogging-social-media/nablopomo.
Basically, NaBloPoMo required that all participants commit themselves to blog everyday for the month of November...yes everyday...rain or shine. When I initially signed up, I doubted that I'd even last a week. But, I'm happy to say that I've lasted the entire month. Looking back, there were a lot of things I learned about blogging, but perhaps the most important lesson I learned was not to doubt myself. I think I mentioned in an earlier post how I have a tendency to count myself out of things before I even begin. I mean, if I don't believe in myself, why should anyone else, right?
Anyway, I don't have a clear plan to "fix" the negative self talk that I so frequently do, but I am so ready to throw it out for good! One thing that I think will help is to continue to set goals for myself so that I can work on retraining my mind. I plan to focus on this area quite a bit in 2013.
Hang in there NaBloPoMo bloggers...one more week to go!!!
