31 Days of Chronicles

a short while ago, i happed upon something that was coming up in the blogosphere. it was "31 days of change". eight bloggers (a few of which i already follow) were participating during the month of october. they each had their own topic and would be posting daily about it on their own blog. the nester shared this post encouraging everyone to participate! (that same post also includes a list of the 8 main bloggers with links.)

i was immediately smitten. i brainstormed ideas of fantastic topics that would amuse the masses. and then reality hit. i can't even post a few times a month right now. i'm swamped with life. it's a fact. open your eyes. so i begrudgingly withdrew my fantasy of participating in this fun challenge.

but a few days ago, i decided i would settle on a happy medium. yes, i would love to use this challenge to get my blog groove back on, but it's just not realistic at this season in my life. but i miss blogging. and i miss writing. i miss sharing stories. i miss photos.

as a result, i have settled on thirty one days of chronicles. i have posted practically no photos or stories over the last three to four months (with the exception of week in the life in late july). so, this is a way to challenge myself to get back into the groove of prioritizing telling our story.

i am not focusing on any one topic in particular. anything that is happening in our lives or has happened in the last few months and i deem important enough to throw on my blog. i know these posts will not be entertaining or exciting to most. but if nothing else, hopefully it will get me back into the routine of blogging...possibly leading back to some more "meaty" content for any readers i may still have left.

i am also hoping it will help me get back into the groove of taking more photos...something i've really slacked with lately.

if you are participating in 31 days, leave me a note - i'd love to check out your post!
