My 30 Day Excuse

Posted on August 4, 2007 - Filed Under Contest, Fun, Personal |

Sorry I haven´t been putting up wildly fascinating posts the last couple of days. I have two reasons.

One, I feel lousy. I got an hour of sleep the night before last and it seems to have been the last straw for my body. I got sick. Really, painfully sick. I just hurt all over and I´m not sure why, it isn´t really a cold or flu, but I ache all over. If it doesn´t go away soon, I guess I´ll drag my butt to the doctor, but since I really dislike doctors, I am going to try and avoid that!

Two, I came across this deceptively simple thing in my Google blog reader three days ago. One of the freelance writing blogs that I read was talking about simplifying the amount of information that we take in. She talked about narrowing everything down to just a couple of ways to learn. One way was the ProBlogger 31 Days to a Better Blog Challenge, which I was already participating in. The other was called the 30 Day Challenge.

Oh, such simple words those, for such an astounding accumulation of information. I went to sign up for the 30 Day Challenge, hoping to learn a thing or two to improve my blogs and maybe earn some money. The Challenge goal is $10 the first month.

Well, turns out the whole thing started Aug. 1st, so I was right on time. But you have to find a team. Feeling like a shy kid again, I approached a person in the forum and asked to join his team. Gulp. I was accepted. YAY! And then I discovered that there were about 15 days of pre-launch material. Material that you HAVE to see before starting the challenge! It is all in videos that take forever to download and podcasts, too. However, the information that is in these videos is a lot and it is very useful.

So, here it is, the 4th day of the Challenge and I have just finished the last few pre-launch videos. There were so many people for the Challenge, that the servers can´t cope, so Day 3 has been post-poned, good news for me, since I have to go through Day 1 and 2 still!

So, that is my excuse. If it all goes well, I should come out the other side with yet another blog and a whole lot of knowledge on earning money online and using Web 2.0. We shall see if my poor, sleep-deprived, post-pregnancy brain can handle this information overload!
