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.
