Blogtoberfest and Blog This (or Lets do more with less time?)

Bells has inspired me to try something different. I have signed up to both Blogtoberfest (more info can be found here) and Blog This both efforts to increase the regularity of my blogging and challenging me to look at some different topics.

I am really looking forward to the challenge. I have of course picked a time when I have a paper to finish by mid-next week for presentation to a conference, a new team member starting next week and a lot of other work on the horizon. I may have also mentioned a certain spinning course which will probably also take up a bit of my time.

I have this powerful personal image of myself from my mid to late twenties where I achieved amazing amounts both personally and professionally at a time when i was really, really (incredibly) busy and am thinking I might be trying to recapture that (just a little) by challenging myself to do just a little bit more.

I find that I always get way more done when I an insanely busy (not that that happens very often any more!!)

LOVE your birthday presents to yourself. I think you picked perfectly!

Goody - daily posts to enjoy from both you and Bells. I was tempted by Blogtoberfest for about 5 seconds. The attraction for me would be having to conjure something every day from the ordinariness of my life - and the thought that would go into doing this. But I'm such a slow blogger that I'm just not sure I'd be able to get it done.

Already looking forward to tomorrow's post!

Hooray! I love your rationale for doing this. I feel exactly the same way.
