30 Before 30 List

For years now I’ve been talking to anyone that will listen about starting a blog. I’ve had numerous people tell me I should start one. BUT, for me it’s not as simple as sitting down and typing up my thoughts. There is A LOT more that goes into it than I ever imagined there would be. Just coming up with a name took me forever. Then I had to figure out what the hell I was going to write about, how I was going to write it, and who my target audience would be. I kept putting it off and putting it off- telling myself that eventually, one day, I was going to sit down and just DO IT. That day is finally here, and I am beyond excited. What a great tool for me to use as a form of self-expression. There’s no limits, no restrictions, no “right way”- because its 100% MINE! 😊

I work way more efficiently if I have a deadline, that’s something I’ve learned about myself over the years. So I set a deadline for getting a blog started. Enter 30 Before 30 list- which is basically a list of things I want to accomplish before I… dun dun dunnn… turn 30 (May 20, 2018). I don’t know why I’m so scared of leaving my 20’s- but I am, eeeek. To help make it a little less scary/help me feel better about entering a new decade of life- I made the 30 Before 30 List. I challenged myself to complete this list in a year. I’ve been knocking some pretty big things off my list this year- but this blog by far is the biggest (blogging also terrifies me). Check out the full list below to get inspired- and follow my blog for all the juicy details!
