Inspiration | You Have To Do This For Yourself

Sorry, this one's just for me! That post probably gotcha' here but this time, I'm talking to me. Sometimes, you just need to remind yourself why you started doing something in the first place. Before the stats, the likes, the surveys and giveaways...I did this for me! Blogging is what I'm referring to here! I enjoy interacting with readers but I want to make sure I'm pushing myself for the right reasons (and not just for "likes"). So in an effort to make sure I remain true to my own voice, I think it's time to challenge myself. People always say, "If you want something different, you'll have to do something different!" 

I generally don't blog everyday but who doesn't love a great writing prompt challenge here and there! That's exactly what I just stumbled upon today. I'm so glad I stopped by Brave Love Blog and learned more about this blogging challenge for the month of September. I found the challenge actually from a fellow blogger and BLMgirl Yaya, of Randomly Yaya 

**So on all posts in the challenge for the rest of the month, you'll notice this image attached near the bottom, ok? Alright! 

Here are a list of the writing prompts in the challenge!

Blog-tember Day 1

So, this is me! Hi!


...And you can learn more about me and why I blog here

SHEESH!! That list looks like a lot right?! It's because it is! Not sure if I'll do everyday but since I'm totally working on getting a better daily work schedule together, I thought, "heck, why not add another to-do list item to hold yourself accountable to?" Because that's what any logical, pathological procrastinator would do, right? Ha! I'm going to kick myself for this but hey, aren't you just existing if you never challenge yourself? I want to live! 

So, y'all coming along for the ride?! Let's see where this goes! 

Talk to you lovelies later,
