As usual I am behind posting…how ironic or perhaps apropos that I am late posting regarding a challenge that is all about getting ahead! LOL

I am always behind with my blogging and posting, especially since my work schedule ramped up a few years ago and I only have time to blog now on the weekends.  That is why a challenge like this is so important for someone like me.  I need that buffer!

Since I currently have zero scheduled posts, my goals will include not only the posts that I need to write for Oct but also those for November and beyond with the goal of getting October done as the month progresses and building my cushion of 31 posts for the future.

So I am going to do my best to get at least 31 posts ahead and then keep up with them. Last year I managed to accomplish my goal…but then I just took a month off from blogging and was right back in the same boat! lol I promise myself that I won’t let that happen this year!

So without further ado…my preliminary goals to accomplish approximately 60 posts in the next 30 days:
