30 Day Blogging challenge – wish me luck

I came across LearnToBlog.com last year. I wanted to blog and this site provided an excellent advice on how to get started and keep going. So when I saw that they are running a 30-day blogging challenge, I decided to join in. That decision was made 15 minutes ago. A bit spontaneous, but it feels right.

Some of you may remember that I took part in April blogging challenge earlier this year. It really stretched me, but it also boosted my confidence. So, I’m challenging myself again. It’s time for another growth spurt before the year is over.

In terms of the theme, I’m going to immerse myself into life in Azerbaijan and snippets of my memoir. I’ve been editing my manuscript for the last 10 days, and there’s plenty I can share to refresh my memory and to get you excited about my book.

See you tomorrow.

    • Thank you, Gwynn, I’m so excited about the challenge. I’ve been in a bit of a blogging hibernation. It’ll be good to stretch my blogging muscle again πŸ™‚ Thank you for your good wishes.


    • Well, dearest Solveig, once again you inspired me! I’ve been reading your posts daily and realised that I became a bit complacent about blogging lately. I’m nearly done with the third round of editing. And I figured blogging about Azerbaijan for a month might bring memories and insights I have not considered before. Win-win πŸ™‚

      • That’s a great plan Gulara, I am definitely looking forward to forward to those post. I inspired you again? That is not possible…
        Oh and maybe not right away but my beta reading offer is still there for you πŸ™‚

      • Yes, I’m waiting for NaNo and your blogging challenge to come to an end. You’ve got enough on your plate right now. And I’m very grateful for the offer. Let me know when it’s good time for you.

      • Nano has come to a sudden halt due to my brain being clouded over the last few days… But my characters are starting to communicate again, I guess I won’t have the 50000 words by the end of he month but that’s ok.
        I’d say end of December would be great (I have a blogging project for December that I have to dive into…)

  1. Good luck!!! I did the April A-Z challenge and was so relieved when it was over. I feel like I had homework assignments due daily during that month. But it was fun thinking up stuff to write. I am doing the NaNoWriMo challenge and not at all meeting my daily word count. I am thinking if I buckle down, over the next two weeks I might be able to come close.

    • I started A-Z challenge with a one month old baby (after a complex C-section)! How insane was that?! Needless to say by the end of the challenge I was on my last leg πŸ˜€ I did enjoy it though and it helped with the fear I had prior to the challenge: every time I published a post I feared there never be anything else I can write about πŸ˜€ Well, the challenge showed that there was no shortage of topics. This time around, it’s different. I know I can do it, and then take a loooong break over Christmas.
      Good luck with NaNo. I didn’t do very well last year, and this year I decided to edit my manuscript instead.

  2. You’re a glutton for punishment! I thought you were taking a break … hmmm … It’s a bit like that, though: the more of it you do, the more fun it is. Not that I can talk latelyβ€”my photos are the only things keeping mine going! πŸ˜‰ I’m hoping to get back to it soon … πŸ™‚


    • I know 😦 Shocking isn’t it. On a positive side, I just (as in this minute) finished a third round of editing my manuscript. That’s my excuse for generating busy-ness out of thin air πŸ™‚ I’m quite excited about this challenge, though. I’m hoping it might immerse me into the atmosphere of Azerbaijan, that I could integrate into my manuscript.
