Good morning. Happy October 1st. There is no sunshine this morning. I will make my own. Today is the official first day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I’ve been warming up the past few days to ensure my success of showing up every day for the next 31 days. I’m no new comer. I’ve been doing the UBC for a number of years. I’ve missed only one, the last one, when I lost the joy and fun of it.

I’ve always written for the pleasure of putting words and pictures together – mostly for myself. I have no products to push. I do not promote my site but it’s such a pleasure and honour when someone finds my words worth reading. I’ve had my writing space since 2012. It’s a place I come to have conversations with myself to explore my inner landscape. It’s restful to tap out the letters, words and sentences. I love to see them marching across the screen. Thoughts without forms are elusive. They go round and round in the head, chasing each other, causing havoc. This way I am mapping out my thoughts. There’s direction. There’s order.

The Ultimate Blog Challenge is a good community to be in. It’s always better to have support and an audience. Even though we are an online community I can feel the presence and energy of the group. It’s always an adventure to meet and read someone new with different interests and slants on things. My goals for this time around is simple – write a post every day, obey the rules by reading the 2 posts before mine if I put mine in the thread, have fun and not get caught up in the itsy, bitsy hiccoughs of the challenge. Good luck to all of us. Happy writing.

  1. I’m intrigued by this challenge and don’t know the details of it- may be too late for me to join in this year but would love to learn more 😊💕

  2. So happy to see you back in the UBC! I have always enjoyed your life blogs and the messages you share about your days! Your blogs are similar to mine, a little of this and that and easy to read.

  3. I always enjoy reading your blog posts, Lily. Your writing is high quality and your stories make me think, smile or look at things just a little bit differently.

  4. I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Ultimate Blog Challenge, it’s great to have you here! I’m sure you’ll reach your goals easily with that great positive attitude 🙂 Thanks for taking part, and good luck!
