It all started when Alex interrupted the silence of her "create corner" blog by sharing about the 2010 52 books in 52 weeks reading challenge. Before that I was happily enjoying my long term blog writing break, while once in a while skimming blogs in my google reader. The challenge, however, stirred something within me. I love to read, and I love challenges. I couldn't resist. I had to check it out. While the rules said that you didn't have to blog to participate, I knew it would be that much more fun, and motivating, to blog about the challenge. That started the wheels churning about the possibility of reviving my sleeping blog.
I decided to check out the list of participants that had already signed up for the challenge. This led me to the Book Dragon's Lair. I noticed in her side bar that she was hosting some challenges and it was there that I found the Reading Through the Seasons 2010 Challenge. I thought this would help me choose some of the books I'd read for the 52 books challenge. I had I noticed that the challenge rules stated that books may overlap other challenges and this challenge said the same thing. I could participate in both without adding to my required reading. Good idea! That got me thinking...maybe I could find other challenges that would help me in deciding what to read for the 52 books challenge! I did a google search for 2010 book challenges. There are lots of them out there. It became more and more tempting to revive my blog so that I could post about these challenges and why I was interested in them.
While going through all the different challenges that I found, I came up with a few of my own ideas for challenges that I want to challenge myself with. That got me to thinking that if I revived my blog I could post my own challenges and invite others to join me.
The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. Yes, I would revive my sleeping blog and join the challenge - er, challenges!
Stay tuned for a list of the challenges I hope to participate in and a couple of challenges I would like to pose.
