Jumping on the Bandwagon for 31 Days

So, I decided to jump on the bandwagon.

There is this thing that happens every October called 31 Days, where you blog on one topic every day this month. You can see the 1400+ people doing it over here.

I’ve contemplated participating, but every time I think I want to do it, I get all itchy and uncomfortable because, let’s be honest, is there really anything I can do for 31 days straight? Yeah, exactly.

There is no way on God’s green earth where I would actually write out thoughtful posts every. single. day. (Let us not forget that I have blogged a whopping 5 times in the last 5 months.) Now if I was organized and put some thought into this, I would have written the posts out in advance. But who am I kidding? Amber plan ahead? That’s unheard of!

I will say, I brainstormed a few topic ideas: 31 days of homemaking fails, 31 days of becoming a doctor’s wife, 31 days of dealing with depression, and then I had it….my stinkin’ awearness project. Yes. That was it.

It’s kinda what my life has been consumed with for the last 7 months (both good & bad). And my husband is probably sick and tired of hearing me talk about all the amazing companies and what I should wear and what I wish I had and how I don’t have any options and blah, blah, blah. So, lucky you! You get it now!

I decided to call it 31 Days of Lessons Learned From Creating a Closet With a Cause. I even made this little graphic for it.

And then I panicked and thought, what lessons have I learned? I already shared 10 of them last week? What more can I tell? I knew that if I tried this I would surely fail.

So then I decided I would just do 31 days of Things I Learned While Creating a Closet with a Conscience. (<– My daughter told me it should be a closet with a “conscience” rather than a “cause”. She’s smarter than me, so I took her advice.) So I went ahead and made this graphic.

But then I panicked and thought, what 31 things have I learned? They may not be lessons, but what things can I share? How can I fill the pages? It was just too much pressure.

So I decided to make it simpler (read: more vague). And now we have 31 Days: Creating a Closet With a Conscience. And so once again, I made a graphic.

(If I would have spent as much time on writing as I did on making these little pictures, I probably could have written all 31 posts!)

So there. I liked this one. It leaves it open enough that I can share one little thing or a whole lot of things or just a picture or a great big long post. (and also I think this allows me to blog about other stuff too. I think that is what makes me itchy – having to stick to just one topic…it’s just makes me feel too confined.) Plus, I’m hoping it will get me back to blogging again. I really do miss it. Kinda.

Honestly, I’m kind of excited about this whole thing. Since getting rid of my clothes on April 30th, I haven’t really had any accountability. OK, I’ve had NO accountability. It’s not that I went out on a shopping spree, but I just haven’t kept track of the clothes & accessories I do have – which ones are my “conscience clothes” & which are just regular ones. Hopefully I will explain and/or document my closet during this month. I know, sounds super fun, right? Heh.

So come along for the ride. It will be fun. I promise.

If you don’t want to miss a post, subscribe over in the top right corner of this blog to get updates in you inbox. But if you don’t want to, then don’t. No one is forcing you, OK? OK.

Peace out & See ya tomorrow!
