Blogtober 2018 | Blogging Every Day for the Entire Month of October

Perfectionism is a constant struggle.

Nothing ever gets done, because nothing is ever good enough. You look at this piece of art/writing you've created, and see all its faults. You tinker with it over and over, polishing it until it's so shiny, you see your face reflected back at you.

But it still isn't good enough. You spot a tiny dent, freak out and decide to scrap the whole thing and start over. Needless to say, being a perfectionist is exhausting.

It's something I've struggled with this for a while--in my writing and life in general. Whenever I begin to overthink the work I'm doing, I remember Arriane Serafico's wonderful advice: Done is better than perfect.

Those words have driven me to participate in #blogtober2018.

What is Blogtober, you ask?

Blogtober is a yearly event that takes place in--wait for it--October. You blog every single day for the entire month about whatever comes into your mind. It doesn't matter if you usually blog about books or fashion or whatever your niche of choice is. Anything goes during Blogtober. The main point is, you're posting daily.

P.S. I googled "who invented blogtober" but didn't find anything. If you know who started this Internet event, please let me know!

Why am I participating?

I'm participating for several reasons.

First of all, this event is ideal for a perfectionist overthinker like me. I can't overthink, because there isn't any time to second-guess if this one joke is funny or plain corny. I have to get the next post up before I can question myself if it's good enough or not.

Also, this little experiment will give me a lot of data about what kind of posts generate traffic. I've never posted consistently on this blog, so this will be a good chance to see what posts the handful of people (lol) who visit my blog respond to.

Lastly, I want to write mooooore. Aside from the things I have to write for my day job, I've barely written anything that is truly for my enjoyment this year. 2018 is almost over, so I want to pack as much writing into it as I can before it ends.

What about you? Does Blogtober sound like something you'd like to participate in?
