What I Learned From #Bloglikecrazy


What I learned from blog like crazy

#Bloglikecrazy has been quite a challenge for me. Being a blogging newbie, I have never blogged every single day. I decided to take the challenge anyway. I felt like giving up many times, but I stuck it out until the very end. (this is the last post, look at God!) I never knew I had so much to say. I started the challenge thinking I could just blog about my spending freeze. That got boring real quick for me. That is when I wanted to quit, but something inside me wouldn’t let me. I learned that I have gumption and when the going gets tough, the tough get going!.

I began to get a little more creative in week two. My husband thought I was crazy taking pictures of our home. I told him I needed something to blog about, so just chill. I learned how to improvise and that I don’t just have to be a stuffy finance expert. I can show people that I practice what I preach. I made it through week two, but still wanted to give up. My November was all over the place, I really didn’t have time for all this blogging. I learned I need better time management skills. For my next month long blogging feat, I have already scheduled the post’s and done most of the graphics.

A few more lesson’s I learned are:

  1. Never give up even when your obstacle seems unsurmountable.
  2. I have more word’s and idea’s in me than I thought
  3. I am creative
  4. Set better time-management strategies
  5. Don’t limit myself to just one day a week; spread the day’s out and cover thing’s that I do in my frugal life along with giving financial tip’s and advice

#Bloglikecrazy was challenging, but fun and I am glad it is over! Will I participate next November? Of course, I wouldn’t dream of not participating! I can’t wait to see what I blog about next year. I have also enjoyed reading and sharing my fellow participant’s posts. Thank you Javacia, for all you do and how you keep us Jane’s on our toe’s.
