Why I signed up for the Super Blogger Challenge #SuperBloggerChallenge #instacuppa

The Challenge of a challenge?

I am one of those suckers for challenges. Especially, blogging challenges.  I love participating even if I know I’m stretching myself. Besides, the name SuperBloggerChallenge is very intriguing. Will this really take my blog to another level?  Apart from this passion to jump into challenges, there are three reasons why I signed up for the SuperBloggerChallenge.

Working with structure, working towards a goal

Quite simply because I am one of those people who needs  a structure to work with. I like to write but I sometimes get stuck. What do I write about? Am I really an expert at anything?

Working towards a goal is always more inspiring and motivating than just working aimlessly. While all writers write for themselves, they also want to be read and appreciated. So when I work on a platform like a blogging challenge, I know that at least for as long as the challenge lasts, I will have readers reading what I write.

Life is life long learning

As a full time Stay At Home Mom, I recently discovered my Ikigai: helping others. But in the course of this journey, I also discovered that all women need to have an identity separate from their family. To this end,  I have made sure that both my girls grew up to be successful professionals.

Women who work outside are like superwomen. After all, all women have to multi-task and to work outside the house is doubling the work. And  working  women who blog? Having a full time job, a fulltime household to run, other activities to deal with like shopping , cleaning, socialisng etc and still have time to blog? Wow! Those women must be superwomen.

Anna Shetty, my younger daughter is a doctor and I know how busy she is. In fact, I play a major role in baby sitting her kids so that she can attend to her patients. Which is why I know how hard it is for doctors to find time to do anything that demands more of their time.

So when I find dedicated bloggers like Dr. Amrita and Dr. Bushra ( I first came upon their blogs when I did the A to Z Challenge) my jaw just drops!

These are two super busy professionals who still find time to blog and time to coach other bloggers too. Most blogger gurus who give advice give it for a price. And very often the blog advice is just re-hashed old posts. Byt this blogging challenge is offering FREE advice. Can it get any better?

  • So part of the reason for joining this  blogging challenge is to learn something from the tips that they give during this challenge.

Never leave a job half done

Last year I signed up for this challenge largely because I was intrigued by this challenge (as indeed I am curious about all challenges).  Sadly, I had to give it up even before it began because the grandbabies were a whole year younger. I was travelling overseas and found it difficult to blog on mobile. And lastly, there were some family health issues at the same time.

So this year round, I decided to actually participate in the challenge and see if I can really do it.

So this is my first post and I do hope dear Doctors that I’ve got it right!

    All the best for this time. I also left in the mid-way last year because my younger baby was just 3-month old. This time I am pretty determined.

    Good luck, Bellybyes! I’ve had some disruptions in my life recently and decided not to take anything on for a while (I’ve also curtailed some of my blog reading) – but I may take on Blogging from A to Z in April. I hope this challenge fulfills the reasons why you are participating, and I have a feeling it will.

      It felt so good to connect with you Alana. I too have been feeling like taking a break…. perhaps many of us bloggers are suffering from a burn out of sorts because there has been a drop in my regular blogging readership . I also find that my regular blogging friends have reduced their blogging ….. this challenge is not matching my expectations but I am learning something out of the tutorials the hosts are conducting . I hope things settle down for you .

  17. Nimmy Joseph says:
