For anyone who hasn’t read The Year of Yes* by Shonda Rhimes, there’s a point in the book where she’s talking about something going on in her life and basically says to herself that she’s making a choice, and if she continues to make that choice, she needs to either make a different choice or own the choice and stop complaining.
I keep choosing not to update my blog and then complaining that my blog isn’t engaging or fun for me. So I need to own it and stop complaining. Or make a different choice.
Because I was reminded of that and because I have been inspired by how hard Elisabeth has been killing it with The Slice of Life challenge, I have decided to make a different choice and really engage with this space.
I’m going to start by signing up for the A to Z challenge and participating in that throughout April. And! I have already decided on a theme. My theme is going to be fannish pursuits aka TV, movies, books, etc. that I have VERY STRONG FEELINGS about. I don’t do message boards and Tumblr or stuff like that anymore, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t in the past nor does it mean I don’t still have VERY STRONG FEELINGS about what I watch or engage with. So these are those things I did or would have a billion LJ icons of or could talk about for hours, basically.
I have already made a list. So yeah. I’m ready.

That’s awesome! Hope you’ll get much joy out of this decision and your blog 🙂 Here’s to strong feelings about fannish stuff! Btw, I should really check out The Year of Yes.
