VOF Assignment Week Three (Keeping Motivation)

edges_heroines2.jpg

Challenges and barriers to blogging, for me, seem only to be within myself. I keep up several blogs for different reasons, and have had many over the years that lapsed due to the website going down, my account being canceled, etc. However, despite this, I believe that ways in which I can overcome my own problems do exist-such as having something to blog about that I really care for. The woman's rights movement and world need are big motivators for me. Striving for change, engaging in discussion about what are effective means of going about such change. I also believe that having like-minded people doing the same thing is a big help in overcoming self-laziness and lack of interest.

My writing website I don't keep it up as often as I should
BBT Magazine My magazine-I have other bloggers whom I supervise
My old MySpace blog

All of these have suffered now and then, and even the blog here has not gone as fast as I would like it, but that does not stop me from trying. In fact, when I feel very strongly-which is often enough I write the posts I am most proud of.

Bonnie,
I enjoyed reading your assignment. You are so right on, most of the barriers we face are within ourselves!
I would of also like to seen you go into more detail on how you can overcome these barriers.
Keep up the good work

Your words

Thank you Bonnie for reminding us that sometimes the limiting factors in our lives can be our own resistance to doing what we know we need to! I think sometimes we feel, particularly as writers, that what we have to say isn't worth reading...but I've found, through my own blogging practice, that when I set out to write something that I feel strongly about, or that is particularly personal, that it resonates with the people who are reading my words. And I find, that through that encouragment, I can keep going.

I trust that you will continue to find the encouragment you need to keep sharing about those issues that are most important to you, and we will look forward to reading your words!

Peace and Writing,

Nikki Jardin
