Pish Posh Challenge - Week 7


We have reached the seventh week of the Pish Posh 8 Week Challenge where Pish Posh has challenged her readers to pick something about their lives they don't like and change it. She also challenged us all to write about the process over the course of the eight weeks so we can check in on each other for encouragement, sympathy, or congratulations.

I focused on my writing. The best way to get better at something is to practice and people wanting to improve their writing are commonly encouraged to write me. So, I challenged myself to write at least five posts a week. As of the end of week 7, I have met the goal every week. This week, I even got an extra one in.

Here are my posts since last week's link up:

Back In My Day
I use pictures from my childhood to tell a story to a bunch of high school kids with a sense of entitlement. NO! The story is not true.

I received an award and got another visit from the Awards Fairy.

It's A Wonder I Ever Leave Home 
I added a few people to my ever growing list of people I cannot stand. Let's add to the list people that only want to talk about health food.

He won't eat it.
He hates everything.
Things That Make You Feel Old
I compiled a list of pop culture events designed to make you realize how old you are. It may or may not be fun to read. It's a nice nostalgic trip down memory lane, but could make you fell like crap at the same time. Did you know that it has been 26 years since the last time LIFE cereal ran the ad with little Mikey?

Tired Of Politics
I express my disgust with the current state of social media and all the bickering about politics because of the upcoming election AND I offer a solution.

My new job allows me a lot of free time, part of which I use for writing my blog. I almost feel like I'm cheating because my circumstances have changed since I started this challenge. My biggest obstacle before this was feeling like I didn't have the time to write. I had made the decision that I would make time for it like I do my shower time. Now, I don't have to*. The time is there.

* I don't have to find the time to WRITE. I DO still have to shower.

This leads me to believe that even when this challenge is over, I may continue at this pace as long as I have this job. I need to start pre-planning some posts.

  2. Wow, only one week to go. Way to stay with it. Although, I will say that it's kind of exhausting just trying to keep up with your pace of posting. I'm not sure how you have kept it up yourself. But bravo!

    1. Thank you. I had fun with the political posts. I do my best to keep partisanship out of it, but still get my jabs in.

  5. Maybe you don't need to find time to write, but you still need to make it a priority. How many times have many of us said we'll do whatever when the circumstances are right, and then when they are we fill the vacancy with something else. Good for you for sticking to your goals. You're doing so well!
