While reading Twitter and stuffing my face with leftover Halloween candy, I saw a post from Zoe at Splodz Blog about a month long November blogging challenge. It’s called BEDN – Blog Every Day in November and being hosted by Rosalilium.
I’ve been down this road before with my own 29in29 Challenge. Blog every day. Sounds easy enough, right? I do like to write things down but often find that I’m distracted by outlets like Twitter. Once I’ve gotten the chit-chat out, my blog suffers. Hopefully this challenge will help me to get this ship back on course. Even if just for a little while.
One of the upsides is that the BEDN challenge comes with daily topic prompts that you can choose to follow. Or not.
Today’s topic? Introduction. Tell the other #BEDN folks who you are and maybe tell your long time readers something new about you.
I am: Mom, wife, motorcyclist, dog-lover. Rider of dirt, street, two wheels, three wheels, bicycle wheels.
I’ve been blogging on this lil ole website in some form or another for about 10 years. It all started as a way of documenting my travels and a process to ‘remember.’ The progression was natural, I guess. I was always the type of girl who wrote notes, kept a diary, scribbled horrible poetry. A blog seems like the natural extension of all that.
The focus of the blog is motorcycles. Mostly. Sort of. It is about motorcycles in the way that they allow me to see the world, not so much the nuts and bolts of makes, models and mechanicals. This blog is more about the seeing, the traveling, the living that motorcycles deliver me to.
If you’re a regular reader – you’re probably familiar all of this. What’s something about me you might not know?
Well? This spring I started running. Yes, with my feet.
Running is something I never thought I’d be able to do. I’m not great at it, but man, I love it.
I spent the past few month running in 5Ks, 5-milers and 10Ks. I’m going to be doing a 10-miler in January and hopefully… will be doing my first half marathon in the spring.
So – That’s my story.
If you’re new here, I’m glad to have you along. If you’re a familiar face then you already know I’m glad you’re still here.
Only 29 posts to go! 🙂
