What is the 31 day Blogging Challenge? The 31 day challenge is a challenge for bloggers to choose a specific topic and write a post for each day in the month of October.
It is October 2, why start now? Those of you that know me will not be surprised to know that I am a little late to the 31 day party but I figure better late than never. Since this blog is new, I wasn’t going to participate this October; however, I recently discovered that October is also Spina Bifida Awareness Month.
Why did you choose Spina Bifida as your 31 day topic? I decided what a wonderful way to share with friends and family members some of my journey, thoughts and opinions regarding my daughter’s condition-Spina Bifida. Every day for the rest of October I will be posting “31 Letters to the New Mom of a Child with Spina Bifida”. Letters that I wish someone had given to me when I received that first phone call from the doctor. Some posts may be educational on the actual medical information, some may be sad, some may be funny but more than anything I hope that it will encourage anyone that is facing a difficult event in their lives. I also hope that the readers of this blog will participate by commenting on their own struggles.
Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to hear from you all. Please be sure to check back tomorrow for my first “letter”.
