I love a challenge. I also love writing. So a writing challenge, especially one that I know will have emotional benefits for me are always a good thing. I’m a little scared of this one, though.
The 31 Days of Simple Joys is my take on the 31 Days in 2012, which is a now a nationwide blogging challenge to write every day for 31 days about the same topic. Basically, you pick a theme and find ways to adapt the theme to write every day. The entries don’t have to be long, in fact it’s best if they aren’t.
I struggled to decide what I wanted to write about for 31 days. This is Spina Bifida Awareness Month but I just didn’t feel like writing about my disability for every single day. I don’t give it that much attention in my real life, why give it that much audience in my blog life? I decided that a vague but specific enough subject would be Simple Joys. Each day I’m going to blog about something I find joyful or something simple (and often insignificant) that I must admit puts a big ol’ smile on my face. I first wrote about Simple Joys in 2011, which you can read here.
Each blog will be accompanied with the graphic I created:
