Decluttering Daily Leads To Writing Daily

On New Year’s Day 2020, I decided to start a challenge on my other blog to declutter or introduce a mini system around the house every day in order to reduce the amount of stuff and provide more clear space.

Note 336 – The 7 advantages and 7 disadvantages of daily blogging

11 months down, 1 to go! With just 30 days to go on my 366 day Writing Challenge, I am pleased to say that it’s been an enjoyable experience, but also very time-consuming. Blogging every day (in addition to a day job) without a break can be exhausting some days and it’s not something I’m … Continue reading
