Welcome to the first day of 2013! It’s Tuesday, it’s blog meme time and definitely it’s the first IBOT in this year. So yeah I am all excited for 2013 and all excitement has began since the counting down started.
2012 was my year of positivity. I was determined to spread positivity to the world. By saying that I meant I was to stay away from negative people and surrounded myself with positive people and positive energy. And then to stay in line with the theme I started I Heart This Blog award to share the positivity to other blogger as well as to appreciate their work.
Unfortunately I had to quit the award mostly due to technical thing. That was one of my failures last year. But I was starting it all over again. I decided to do it once a year in bigger form hence I gave Most Inspiring Blogger 2012 Award to these bloggers at the end of December 2012.
This year my theme is CHALLENGE. I want to raise the bar. I want to go bigger. I need to challenge myself.
Last year I still could not figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I chose to blog because I decided to take a break from my career and just be a stay at home mom. And besides, we were staying overseas. It was hard to find a job for me that would suit the kids and husband’s schedule.
I used to think that once we were back to Indonesia I would restart my career. I would be back to the corporate ladder or to start my business. But when that happened, as we all moved back to our home country I changed my mind.
I was bouncing dead ends in starting a business. Lack of passion was one most possible reason. I also couldn’t see going to office everyday and lick the boss’s ass work for me in any way. Nevertheless K’s school schedule is a very hectic one. After spending too much hours in job search I finally concluded that the job that would work perfectly for me is full time blogging. I love writing my blog, I love reading blogs, I love making new friends, I just love everything about it.
So this year I challenge myself. I have set the bar and the challenge for me is to go beyond that. Whether I would succeed or not I have one full year to work it out.
One of my challenges is Newsletter. Starting this January onward I have Newsletter that I will be sending out at least twice a month. It will be a thrilling experience for me because there will be one full editorial plan for that every month.
If you want to help me out give me a chance to amuse you through my newsletter. Let’s subscribe it here. If you don’t like it you can always hit unsubscribe (but I will work my ass to make you like it :D)
