Summer Blog Challenge - Day 1 "Why Are You Doing This Challenge?"

Going Green with the Grizls

Why are you doing this challenge? 

I started blogging in January, exactly 5 months ago from today. In the mom blogging world that's practically no time at all! My blog is like a little fledgling, if it was a baby it probably wouldn't have even started crawling yet. 

I started writing this blog just before I started my last semester at UH Manoa. I knew at the time it was crazy, I originally had planned to start in May, after the semester was over, but once I had the idea in my head I just couldn't let it go. I wanted to blog! 

As soon as the semester started though I knew I had maybe bit off more than I could chew. Mr. Eight was still TDY  at the time, and wouldn't be home for another 2 1/2 months, what was I thinking? 

In the end I made it out ok. I graduated with a good GPA. I participated in tons of giveaway events, and I met some really cool people along the way! 

Now that summer has begun though, I need a little direction. I have way more time to do the things I want and I want to get serious about blogging. 

I see this challenge as a training exercise, I need to learn to better manage my time, schedule posts and deal with the time difference between Hawaii and the East Coast (I'm currently 6 hours behind those of you looking at the Atlantic). 

Case in point, I'm writing a blog post that should have been finished 2 days ago! 

Way to botch the very first day of the challenge!!
