So… remember last year when I decided to do the Ultimate Blog Challenge, and blog every day for a month, and how I thought it would make me blog more?
Um…. that clearly didn’t happen!
Not dissimilar to last year… my life is getting busier. Last year, I started a new job that I still haven’t blogged much about (sorry! I really am!)
This year…. I’m going back to school!
Which I will write about…
When I thought I would try again with the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say, and what I could blog about every single day for 31 days… because, let’s face it, last year I was all over the place! I wrote some pieces I was extremely proud of, and at least one that made me laugh the entire time I wrote it. But there was no real cohesion; it was like my brain took all of its random thoughts for 31 days, spit them out somewhat eloquently, and called it a day.
I don’t want that to happen again.
So… I have a plan!
For those who have stuck around from the beginning (I am so unbelievably grateful for all of you, by the way!) remember a long long long long long time ago when I wanted to write about my love of beading and jewelry making?
That time is now!
Every day for the next 30 days, I will blog about this hobby. I’ll blog about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the creative process. I’ll share pictures of pieces that have been sitting stored away for a very long time and maybe you’ll decide you like them and get in touch so you can have some of your own. I’ll make more pieces now that my beading room no longer looks like a teeny tiny home office with glaringly white paint on the walls and is actually a place I want to be!
And maybe I’ll share some of how I do this all with not much usable vision… because that’s both part of the challenge and the most boring part of this process.
Come and join me!
Hi, I’ve been a longtime lurker of your blog…who’s always enjoyed reading what you have to say about your life/other things. As a fellow blindie/a fellow bead-lover myself, I’m especially looking forward to reading your future posts about this particular hobby.
Thank you for reading and for dropping by! I love to share experiences, so definitely don’t be shy and drop me a line if you would like to 🙂
Glad to see that my comment posted, LOL. WordPress isn’t always friendly with VoiceOver the screen reader on my iPhone, in terms of notifying me that my comments have posted successfully. So if I have repeat comments at all, please feel free to delete them. I don’t use WordPress to blog myself; I’ve only registered with WP so that I can comment on other blogger’s blogs I love to read. Not sure if there’s a way to message you privately, though I’d be happy to share my blog URL with you if so.

It’s so cool you’re picking a theme for your blog this month for the challenge! 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

What a lovely post! I cannot wait to read more about your beading and jewelry making.
I love seeing beads but I never considered doing beading myself. I look forward to your posts. You may inspire me to pick up a new hobby 😀
