Sometimes You Need to Restart

August 27, 2010, In: blogging & technology

I have a habit of taking on too much sometimes. For instance back in July, I signed up for a challenge that would help me create a better blog. I have two blogs now that I keep up with. The first one is for my business – and the second one is this one, my personal blog – My personal blog is new and I was inspired by several people in my new Boulder community to get it going so I started it along with the challenge.

Like how all new things begin, I had great intentions in July even though I knew it was going to be tough. At the time, I was finishing up TechStars, an intense 3-month business acceleration program and then my fiance’s grandfather passed away so about a week into the challenge, life got in the way. This time, life will be just as busy – I will be visiting family, working on my new business, and planning a wedding among other things – but I am determined to spend a few minutes each day making both of my blogs better.

I am also part of a great start up community for women in Boulder and had talked with them about the challenge. Since I am hitting the restart button a few of my new friends are going to join me in the challenge and we are scheduled to start on September 1st. So, if you have a blog that you want to start or improve, or if you’re like me and fell behind on the challenge you are welcome to join us. It’s going to be a fun ride.
