As I was moseying through Pinterest today, I came across a post titled “30 Day Challenge – Day 3 – A Picture Of My animals”
I assumed that it was a photography challenge (I think I’ve been tagged in a fair few of those and not realised because 1) I don’t read Facebook notifications and 2) I don’t pick up my Messenger messages very often, either), but it wasn’t. It was actually a blog challenge.
Now, as you’re probably aware, I don’t really need a challenge to make me start writing, but I really liked the sound of this one, so I’m going to do it. 30 days, each day a different topic, with the intention of letting the real me out into the world. Or at least, letting the real me loose on those poor unsuspecting… sorry, awesome people who read this blog!
You know what? It would be awesome if you commented underneath this article with your own photos/comments and let me get to know you a little better. Or, write your own blog post and put the link in the comments. That would be amazing and so much fun.
So, here goes!
Day 1 – Share a recent photo of yourself along with 15 interesting facts…
At which point, the middle aged, stay-at-home, empty-nesting mother-of-four in me says things like, “Interesting facts? I don’t do anything interesting! I’ll have to think back 20 or 30 years and see what I can dredge up…” <sigh>
Recent photo at the top of the page, as instructed. That was taken a few days ago by my incredibly talented (#proudmumtalking) daughter, Kira. I wasn’t expecting to have a photo session, so I wasn’t exactly dressed for it (#gymkit) but the photos turned out beautifully, so I thought I’d use one of them. (note to self: learn how to pose!)
Fifteen interesting facts…
Have you noticed that I’m avoiding doing this?
Okay, I’ve just sat here for several minutes, staring at the screen, unable to think of anything. For heaven’s sake.
My husband just failed miserably when he couldn’t think of a single interesting fact about me. He’s gone off scratching his head, saying there’s lot of interesting things about me, but no facts.
So, what about you? What 15 facts could you share about yourself? Why don’t you do your own 30 day challenge? It’s a great way to start your own blog.
PS John says to make sure everyone is aware that I get really grumpy if I don’t exercise and even grumpier if I don’t eat!
