#socialbloggers 39 // Your Passions and Goals

passions and goalsHello everyone.

Firstly – I’d like to apologies for the timing issues. Noor lives in Pakistan and they didn’t change their clocks like us lot in the UK! It’s nobody’s fault – just one of those things that happens – sometimes and because I was at work I didn’t realise! Normal service will resume this week and #socialbloggers will be at 6pm GMT as usual πŸ™‚

This weeks topic was all about passions. Things you love, goals you have and how you get to them.

My main passions are blogging and running.

The thing I love about blogging is writing. I’ve always been a bit of a writing nerd – I started many novels as a child, wrote short stories and in my teens I went through a phase of adoring poetry – both reading and writing. I was writing all the time and spent a lot of time reading and critiquing/praising others poems and short prose. I guess blogging feels natural to me as I’ve had some form of online journal nearly all my adult life. Whether it be a blog, a diary thread on a forum of the journal function within Deviant Art.

I work hard at blogging by creating content – both writing about things I enjoy and writing things for the benefit of others. I love that feeling of publishing a post I’m really proud of.

My ultimate goal is to make enough money consistently every month that I’m able to go part time at work, so I can spend more time blogging. Although I am realistic and realise this goal might not be reached in a matter of weeks or months.

My ultimate goal with running is to run a marathon. But I have serious doubts about my ability to do this! Mainly because of the time takes to really train for one. My goal this year was to run three 10k races, which I completed yesterday by running the Leeds Abbey Dash.

Next year, I’m aiming to run the same 10ks again, plus Leeds half marathon in May. Oh God, I’ve announced in on my blog so there is no going back now.

Half marathon.

I’m going to do it in 2015.
