31 Days of Simply Katie.

I decided to participate in The Nester's 31 Days month of blogging this month.  And of course, being me, I didn't decide this a few weeks ago and give myself time to come up with some awesome topic to write about this month.  Nope-- I decided last night that I wanted to participate and jumped in with both feet with no real plan.

But here's what I want to accomplish this month-- First, actually blog every day.  This is going to be probably the biggest challenge of all, but I can do it.  Some days may be short and sweet, but the point will be to get pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard-- you know what I mean).  No better way to become a better writer than to actually write more.

And second, be more open about myself than I have in the past.  This blog has historically been a journal of sorts-- a way for me to chronicle life and our adventures.  But I've been hesitant to get deep or vulnerable here, and I'd like to do that more.  After all, this is my space-- if I can't talk here, where can I?

I'm looking forward to reading new blogs, growing in my own writing, and putting myself out there a little more.  Welcome to the 31 Days of Simply Katie!


  1. Katie! I think this is awesome! I didn't decide I was doing this until....Saturday, maybe? PANIC!!! I love that you decided to participate anyway...so many people would have used that as an excuse to chicken out! Can't wait to see what's next! :)

  2. I jumped in last night too! I'm doing a Meghan's favorite things kind of topic...we'll see how it goes, I'm excited to read yours!

  3. I've seen lots of people talk about this today., can't wait to read and see you meet your goal :)

  4. I love this 31 day idea!!! Can't wait to read more :)

  5. Hooray! I look forward to the glimpses of your heart I trust will be coming :).

  6. Katie, this is awesome. I feel the same way about my blog, it's more of a journal of weekend events. I never dig deep and let people in to know the REAL me. I'm excited to learn more about you :)
