now that I got my introduction and New Year's blogs outta the way, I figure
that I should talk about why I'm doing this in the first place. From what I've
heard 31/31's are grueling challenges, not easily conquered and difficult to
get used to. You'd think I have a good reason to do this. And, I kinda do.
Today, I'll list my reasons.
1: The Challenge
seems that everyone on this site who is on here regularly has done a few blogs,
and that's pretty much true. But only an elite few have completed a 31/31, and
I was just drawn to the prospect. I guess you could say the same thing about
the site glitches, but I actually just had the help of someone who was pretty awesome
with that one.
of all the months in the year I initially eliminated February, because it was
the shorted month and since I was doing this partly for the challenge, I didn't
want to take the easy way out, thus eliminating all the months without 31 days.
2: The Glory
one stems from the first reason I guess. Few people have done 31/31's, so I thought
it would be cool to be among their ranks. Bu there's also another part to this.
"If I'm going to write a blog everyday" I thought to myself, then I'm going to
want other people to read it (a lofty goal I know), so that eliminated months
where I thought the most people wrote 31/31's. So, that would be June, July,
(not the kind of skills I was getting at, but close enough)
3: The Skill
one is a little strange I admit, but just bear with me. Last semester I did pretty poorly in my
writing class (well, by my standards anyway.) I've resolved not to let that
happen again. I've been told that the best way to improve your writing skill is
to write more and hone your craft, so here I am.
4: The Time
this is what decided what month I would be doing this. To put it frankly, I
just picked January because I had the most days off. Let me explain. I go back
to high school on the 6th, but that doesn't mean I'm at school full
time. Until the 22nd (I know it's a weird date, I wasn't the one who
decided it) I only have classes in the afternoon. So my entire mornings are
free. That means I'll be able to blog to my heart's content before school even
Well, those are my reasons as to why I'm doing this. Sound off in the comments below if you have any questions. Starting tomorrow, I'll be doing more regular stuff, until then however,
