Happy New Year!

I have decided to mark 2023 by participating in the WordPress Blogging Challenge for January. This involves writing a blog post every day throughout January. There is a daily writing prompt to help bloggers with the challenge.

The first prompt asks the question:

‘What is something you want to achieve this year?’

This is surprisingly easy to answer. I want to complete the bloganuary challenge! I love blogging mainly because it is a creative outlet for me, and because I enjoy the contacts one makes with other bloggers. However, I’m not particularly disciplined with my blogging. I don’t blog on a specific day or even every week and sometimes I struggle to write any blog posts because life gets in the way! Perhaps participating in this challenge will have a positive impact on my blog?

I’m not a fan of New Year’s Resolutions, although having said that, I always say (to myself) that I will drink more water and go to bed earlier, every year!

This year, I have a ‘special’ birthday so there are a few things I would like to achieve. I want to take the cable car across the Thames and face my fear of heights. I’d like to walk with llamas in the Surrey Hills. I want to revisit Amsterdam – already booked – and explore Portugal further. I’ve been to the Algarve but have yet to visit Lisbon or Porto… My list of things I would like to achieve could go on and on but perhaps being happy and healthy are the most important.

What about you, have you made any resolutions, or is there something you want to achieve this year? I’d love to know!
