I'm days behind in "The 30 Goals Challenge". I started six days ago, but I'm only on Day 2 of the challenge. That's because I feel stumped. Originally, when I read about Day 2's goal - to contribute to a blog carnival - I had no idea what this was, and that intimidated me from giving it a try. So I put it off (as I always do when I'm having trouble starting something). Well, today I told myself that I have to just do it, just sit there, read it again, figure it out, and do it.
So here I am, looking around the education blog carnival list, trying to figure out exactly what this is all about. I think I have a pretty good understanding now (not solid yet, but enough to know what I need to do to accomplish the goal). I found a carnival that I'd like to join, and the submission page is open....but I have nothing to submit. So I'm back at square one where, once again, I'm stuck.
I've only written one real post so far (not including my welcome post), but I don't love it enough to feel it's worthy of submission. So I told myself I would write a new post, and now I have "blogger's block". It's most likely because I feel some invisible pressure to write something "good" (whatever that means) since I'm going to be submitting it to a carnival. Maybe I just need to step away from the computer and try again later.
At least right now I've found a carnival that interests me and I know what I need to do to contribute to it. Goal 2 is *almost* accomplished.
I just submitted one! Let's see how this goes! On to Goal 3 - Start an Adventure!
