30 Day Blogging Challenge: 'I Want To Give Up'

30 Day Blogging Challenge: 'I Want to Give Up'


Today, I just want to give up. I topped the past 13 days but moving forward, I just don’t want to do it. 

If you feel that this blogging challenge is more of a baggage rather than rewarding, reconsider taking this challenge.

The 30 Day Blogging Challenge is definitely for those bloggers who want to improve their blogging skills. It is not for the faint of heart.

If you feel like giving up, but you still feel challenged to finish the entire 30 days, here are some motivational tips that you can consider:


1. See the big picture and the look back to the reason why you took the challenge.


During this moment, it’s best to check the reasons why you decided to take this 30 Day Blogging Challenge.


2. Build anticipation for the next day’s challenge. Get excited to write something new!


Writing shouldn’t be boring and dull. Consider it as a mental exercise that will keep your brain’s neurons active and working. Isn’t it fun to connect words and translate your thoughts into a blog post that others will appreciate?


3. Commit publicly. Bank on that commitment.


Since I started this 30 Day Blogging Challenge, all my friends online knew that I’m doing this. Now, that they know if I fail miserably, I cannot just fail without giving a good try. Make that as your motivation. Allow others to see how you succeed rather than make them remember that you fail on this challenge. Wouldn’t this be a great motivation?


4. Get support from friends and fellow bloggers. Work as a team.


The best way to do a 30 Day Blogging Challenge is not to do it alone. It will become boring and tiresome along the way but if you’re writing with a team of fellow bloggers, you’ll enjoy the hang of it! You can consider joining Cebu Blogging Community and participating on this challenge would surely be fun!


5. Write something you love and enjoy!


Most of all, choose a topic that you enjoy writing. Don’t go into subjects you don’t like. Writing blog posts you don’t like will give you a negative aura but choosing to write something you love will surely be fun and interesting!



I hope these motivational tips will encourage you to keep going. Count how many days left and celebrate that you’ve made it this far. If you’re in the mood now, write as much as you can.

Do you still want to give up? Think again. I know you can finish this 30 Day Blogging Challenge. You can do it, fellow blogger!

Have you been to Cebu City? The Queen City of the South is the one of the most popular cities in the Philippines along Manila and Boracay.

#UPCebuAfterSunset compiles ghost stories from UP Cebu

Ghost hunting, horror stories, paranormal activities… you can visit UP Cebu to experience these out-of-this-world events. Yes, University of the Philippines Cebu is one of the spooky places in Cebu where there are spiritual sightings.
I have compiled several ghost sightings in the campus as determined by some of the students I’ve talked to and conversations heard and read here and there, some of which are edited version of confessions from “Speak UP, Iskolar” published late last year. Believe it or not, according to them, these stories are true and they can attest to the veracity of these experiences.
I have categorized these stories according to the places these ghost stories happened. If you have additional stories you experienced, feel free to share those to us by sending it here.

#BalakPaMore: Cebuano Poetry in Random Corners of Cebu

Do you know where’s the Capital City of Cebuano Poetry? With no doubt in mind, it’s Cebu. Unofficially, of course.
For the past few weeks, Cebu City has been filled with Cebuano poems locally called as balak being posted in random corners like the street walls, electric posts, skywalk, and other public places!
Here are some places that Cebuano poems were posted:
