Zero to Hero update

It’s day 12 and so far I have completed 7 of the challenges set. Day 6 was try a new element, add something in that I haven’t done before. Spicing things up a bit by changing it around is all good, but I’m not going to do it just because.
I haven’t been out to explore the neighbourhood much, but I do have a list of bloggers who’ve visited me that I should really get out to look at. So that will be another done (once I actually do it) and another challenge which I try to do anyway, is leave comments. More specifically, leave at least 5 comments a day on different blogs. Sometimes I just don’t have time, which is where that lovely little ‘like’ button comes in handy. You know I’ve been, but I couldn’t stop to chat.
Another day I found a really cool link, but buggered if I can find it now. It was all about pictures and photo apps. I use my phone a lot for taking pictures and then uploading to my blogs, I also use the ipad (after transferring pics from the camera card) so I used that particular challenge to find an app I could use with both iOS and Android. Not always easy, Apple can be picky about sharing sometimes. But I found it. And it’s pretty cool. Snapseed. Does so many cool things, and very easy to use. Go check it out.  All I need now is a similar one for the laptop…
Other tasks were doing the about page and adding widgets.  I’ve done both, changing titles here and completely re writing my About page. Pop over and check it out, let me know what you think.
Today’s task is to make a post based on a comment I made on another post. I have one in mind that might just work. Expand the comment into a post, and link back to the original blog.  Easy.
And my gratuitous picture for today will be…. (I declined the extra gratuitous shot of bikini clad girl)

What’s on my mind…

Sounds a bit Facebookish that. But no, this is post 3 of the Zero to Hero 30 days. And to be honest, I have no idea.
Of what I was thinking when I first started blogging or when confronted with this Challenge.
Let’s go back to the beginning. Three years ago, before I started on WordPress and had my other blog thing I was writing. It was about sharing my beady adventures and was pretty shit really, looking back on it. I had a break of sorts (after we moved interstate) and then got into WordPress, almost by accident, and I still wasn’t sure what was going through my mind. You know, there are still times when I wonder why? But I enjoy what I do so I keep going.
And what was I thinking with this challenge? Could I do it, and have some sort of success? This month was going to be busy enough with everything else happening without adding a daily challenge into the mix. I have so many challenges going on it is a challenge to get them all done.
I read my sister’s post yesterday about this same conundrum and as she said about getting her mojo back it hit me. That was what I needed. Something to get my inspiration back, my joy at writing, sharing, taking pictures, making with my beads…
It’s working write right now., I’ve had a good day updating all the posts, and re writing history. I still cringe when I read some of the old posts, as I’m sure I will in a few years reading this one.
And there you have it. What’s on my mind right now, (actually it’s bed, let’s not split hairs).

Day 4 is about getting into the Reader and finding new blogs – I’ll try, but might call it a day off. There are other things I need to work on first.
Catch you 🙂
