I remember being in awe of the blogesphere last year during the month of April. So many bloggers participating in the WEGO Health’s Writer’s month long challenge! Just what this scared, breast cancer newby needed. I learned a ton about breast cancer and survivorship by reading the posts generated by this challenge–and became aware of this greater community concerned with cancer and other illnesses. I felt like I was auditing a freshman level class on BC.
This year, the challenge is back and I’ve decided to participate. And if you are so motivated, you can join me in writing about health for 30 days–or just check out the challenge–at info.wegohealth.com/hawmc
This month I may be writing as a newby to the HAWMC, but I am no longer a newby to the world of BC. I started writing this blog 4 months ago because I felt I could no longer ‘audit’ this intense learning experience and sit on the sidelines. I needed to write about my experiences, to process them and to share with others. Mainly, I found that I wanted to join the conversation. I have done that. Now I want to challenge myself to keep up with this month’s challenge of a heftier writing pace.
It shall be interesting.
