31 Days of Blogging Challenge – Getting the laziness out of me!

I am a lazy guy. I start so many things, but in the end, I finish a few. And my pathetic excuse is the lack of time. Probably it’s due to bad time management and the fact I do not prioritize right the important things for me. This blog, my travels should have been on top on my list.

In order to succeed, I probably need someone behind me with a whip. You might know the saying: behind every successful man is a woman. That too is want I need. And to start an excellent book regarding the habit, because it’s all about it: The Power of Habit.

I do still read and follow many blogs. Last week I encountered Jenty’s Post. And the found the main source of the challenge: Jillian Janecka blog and her challenge post: 31-days-of-blogging-challenge. It started back in December last year so I lost the start. Doesn’t matter cause I am going to do it.

Even if this blog is more travel related, some of the topics won’t be but I will try to relate it more with my travels. The purpose of this challenge for me is to make desire to write more, to unleash the writing spirit and beside the daily post to be able to write at least 3 travel related posts per week. Finger Crossed!

The topics will be:

  • Write the story of your life in 250 words or less.
  • List 10 things that make you really happy
  • Post your favorite photo of yourself. Explain why it’s your favorite.
  1. What is your favorite comfort food? Post the recipe!
  2. Post 10 songs you are loving right now
  3. Post a picture of your favorite outfit. Bonus points for details
  4. If you could live in any time period, when would it be and why?
  5. The favorite favorite photo you’ve taken (or top 3)
  6. Write something someone told you about yourself that you will never forget (good or bad)
  7. What are your top 3 pet peeves?
  8. What is the best (or your favorite) moment(s) in 2013
  9. What is the last book you read? What was it about? Do you recommend it?
  10. Creative writing day: write a short fictional story that starts with the sentence “It was time. He/She had fought against it for too long…”
  11. A “day in the life” post.
  12. Post a photo of your handwriting
  13. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
  14. Go to a coffee shop. Order your favorite drink/snack, and write about whatever you feel like. (A life lately post, what makes you happy, what makes you sad etc.)
  15. What is your favorite time of the year and why.
  16. Share something you are struggling with right now.
  17. Write about things that make you uncomfortable.
  18. Write about someone who inspires you.
  19. Pick a picture or quote that speaks to you and explain why. (Interest & Google are your friends with this one!)

  21. Where are you the happiest?
  22. Share something you are looking forward to in 2014.
  23. Share a photo of something old that has a personal history for you, maybe something that was passed down or has special meaning. Tell us about it and why it’s special.
