Avatar Blogger Crossfit Challenge Ahoy! (Entry 1 of 30, GULP!)

(Avatar Kitty UNFIT Challenge would be more appropriate, but still…)

I’ve signed up to the ‘Avatar Blogger Crossfit Challenge’ for the month of June.

Already I’m 4 days behind so I’m playing catch-up in earnest! (Deep breaths, slow and easy, will post some more today to make up..)  This is a blogging challenge that should see a contribution to Kittywitchin every day. Normally I update about three times a week, so this will be tough, but it  help me see if I can maintain a more regular daily blog schedule.

I’ve been assigned my very own area, with a treadmill (HAH! Me on a treadmill, the thought!) and a desk so I can post as I work out..I guess this is the crossfit bit huh?

I feel a little out of my comfort zone which is precisely why I signed up for the challenge!

Vaneesa Blaylock was really encouraging, and when I stressed a little about what was required of me, she responded with these pearls of wisdom..”The only goals that are truly worth achieving are the ones you set for yourself, so I’d encourage everyone not to stress on the details of Avatar Blogger Crossfit challenge month, and instead to use it to move your personal “high jump bar” a little higher. Try writing longer. Try writing shorter. Try posting faster. Try editing more. Try editing less. It doesn’t matter where everyone else’s bar is set, some will always be higher or lower than yours. I’ll never be able to move like Lisa De Vanna, and at least so far in this life I’m lucky to be more mobile than Stephen Hawking. For me, the ultimate goal of ABC is to take wherever your bar is, and move it a little bit higher. And to really enjoy the month – it’ll be over before you know it! “

Sound advise that I will be following. To that end, I had a think about what Vaneeesa meant. Well, my blog is always about longer blog-posts, and that’s not something I’m willing to compromise on by writing short posts that don’t convey the message that I want to get across. Having said that, I tend to waffle. (Something you’ve probably noticed)

So my goal for the Avatar Blogger Crossfit Challenge is to blog *smarter*.

Here is a list of the bloggers taking part.  As you can see I’m in GREAT company, and remember we’re posting every day so there’s going to be LOTS for you to read!

  2. I jumped out to a fast start (I’ll have 10 posts in the first 6 days). I was trying to give myself a little breathing room in case I got stuck along the way. But what this has actually taught me so far is to work ahead, schedule my posts and look at any drafts I’ve had lingering (annoyingly) in my dashboard. I don’t think I can maintain the pace I started with, but I’m learning new ways of working. So I guess I’m blogging smarter, too 🙂

    Good luck, and hope to see you at the juice bar!

  3. This is a lot of fun! What a great way to show our creativity and, at the same time, give us a sense of pace/planning, after all we’re talking about 30 days! The most interesting factor for me is getting to know bloggers who do an awesome job! Like you said, lots to read! 🙂

  4. Gulp is right! I’m already one post behind, but I’m sure I’ll make it up. Just seeing what Peep has accomplished already is enough to give the most lazy amongst us something to think about. Talk about discipline! Cut yourself some slack… you’ve been blogging since 2007, so you must be onto something good right? Like Lizzie, I too really look forward to exploring the blogs of those participating. I think it takes a certain type of blogger to try this on, we’re surely a self-selected group of crazies! Thanks for the mention and hope to see you in your most fashionable tracksuit (/me shudders at the thought of wearing anything resembling a tracksuit)!

    1. Tracksuits, hmm. I admit I tend to live in jogging bottoms/slacks, BUT I can tell you what’s worse..SHELL SUITS!! Remember those?! Yeah, I guess I have been blogging a long time but I always worry i don’t do enough, daft as it sounds!
      This is a lot of fun and I hope will really get me back into a blogging swing! Best of luck! xxx
