Life has been a whirlwind, August in particular being ridiculously stressful. With Gage starting school I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with my time, but knew that it was going to involve something for me. Stay at home moms, at least this one, get lost in the day-to-day and then all of the sudden they realize that they are not the same person they were before kids. If this is true then kindergarten is a litmus test, of sorts. Which way is the wind of the future blowing?
Jason came to me last weekend with an idea crazy enough to interest me. We were always fans of Morgan Spurlock’s 30 Days series and of his documentary Supersize Me and Jason and I are both motivated by challenges so the idea was that we would start a series of personal 30 day challenges. For the next year I hope that I can challenge myself to dream a little, explore the world, push myself to conquer fears all while learning and changing. That sounds easy, right?
So, I set up a blog where I could blog everyday and Jason could contribute his own challenge every other month (someone has to pay the bills!). I hope that you’ll click over to My 30 Day Challenges and follow me as I start this first month with a book challenge I’m excited about. It’s only because of my great experience with you, the book bloggers I know and love, that I’m ready to take on another blog. I don’t know what will happen to this blog long term, after 8 years I’m not planning on stopping, but it may change. For this first month at least, and probably many others, it will be easy to post on both.
And, just so you know, I am planning on inspiring you all to try a 30 day challenge and blog about it with me 🙂
Go on, see what I’m taking on this month. You know you want to.

So exciting! I’m mulling stuff over too. I’ve got a couple of ideas that I might be able to start on for 30 days. Good luck!I look forward to Jason’s posts as well.
Our goal is to have others join us on their own goals and do some blog posts on our blog. I wanted to get a month or two in before seeking people out but it’s something for you to keep in mind 🙂
Reading a book a day is great challenge to start this journey! Can’t wait to see what you choose.
It’s been fun so far!
I’m glad you’re going to be chronicling your challenges – this sounds like it could make a great book!
That’d be way too much pressure.
Interesting, I’m going now to check out your other blog.
