When I started this blog, back in January, it was with the intention of getting some pretty damaged areas in my life repaired. Mostly, our finances were in distress and quite frankly my house was a total disaster. I started blogging again, and started some research. WordPress was completely new to me, my old blog was on Xanga. I was desperate for a community, to find someone who understood and to find new ways to improve my imperfections.
A severe back sprain in 2009 has caused havoc on me. I still have issues with it on a near daily basis. IT HURTS and no, I am not a pansy. My dental office calls me Xena because I had a deep root cleaning and my first cavities filled without ANY pain management. I can deal with some pain, I’m a tough chick. Yet, this back issue has been the bane of my ability to suck it up and move on. Unfortunately, the overall consistent cleanliness of my home has severely suffered. If you knocked on my door today and asked to come in the house I wouldn’t let you in, simply due to embarrassment.
Well, the no spending challenge is complete, and while I am glad it’s over, I really enjoyed writing a series about it. I am hoping that some of you will be interested in participating in a house cleaning challenge with me! A few months ago, I made some house cleaning playlists to go along with a 20 minute a day cleaning schedule. I followed through with parts of it here and there, but I wasn’t really focused on getting into the routine and making it work. I’m hoping some of you want to help with that!
The 20 Minute Get Off Your Booty and Clean Challenge!
I am looking for that community. I want some other bloggers to come forward and offer to take this challenge with me. In order to participate you would have to do the following:
1. Clean your house for 20 minutes a day!
2. Take a before and after photo for each area you clean!
3. Give me permission to use your photo in my post (with a link to your blog of course)!
4. Either write about it on your blog with a link here, OR email me your photos and a quick message about what you did for the week. (you do NOT have to post every day!!!)
5. Make sure your submissions are to me no later than Thursday at 5:30pm CST. The posts will go up the next day!
I am looking for 5 bloggers who are ready and willing to put the embarrassing mess out there and who are excited and PUMPED UP to get their houses clean! If you would like to join this challenge, please comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. YOU MUST sign up no later than Sunday June 1, 2014 at 2:00pm CST. I will make a post later that evening telling you what we should focus on for the week!
If you don’t want to participate full-time, but would like a pat on the back, follow me on Facebook! I think it would be fun to post the best transformations of the week there for individual recognition.
Let’s do this ladies!
