30 days ago I was issued a challenge. To create and write 30 blog posts in 30 days. The overall goal of this was to help create some legitimacy toward the website. I have also like the idea of being able to actually demonstrate some of the things I have been able to experience both professionally and personally.
The last 30 days have been more challenging than I could have ever imagined. I have a newfound respect for people who write for a living. Writer’s block is a real thing, and coming up with new content on a consistent basis was a unique challenge.
I do want to say, that I overall I have enjoyed this excursion. I was forced to really dive into all of my experience to think of things that I could write about with any sort of knowledge. I was able to speak about my times in social media management, management, sales, marketing among many other things. I was forced to analyze different situations. I took another look at how I handled these situations, and I even was able to gain some more insight on how I will handle similar situations in the future. I would strongly encourage anybody that wants to improve themselves professionally, to issue themselves a similar challenge. There are really only good things that can come from it.
I tried to keep my personal blogs to a limit. Sure I could talk about why the designated hitter is great for baseball (and I still might do that), but things like that weren’t my goals for this website and this challenge. Overall I tried to keep my personal blogs somewhat related to my professional goals, and experiences. In the future, I might tinker with this idea more, and you all might get a better idea about the kind of person I am away from the office.
The fact that I have achieved this goal does not mean that I am done from posting to this website. I must say that I won’t be posting at near the pace that I have over the past month. However, I do understand that just because I have accomplished one goal, I can’t just sit back and relax. I will create a new goal and work towards accomplishing that one. Thanks for reading.
