Preparing for 2021: Why Am I Doing This

Why Am I Doing 365 In 365?  

This is the most ambitious thing I have ever tried when it comes to any blog I've had in my entire life. 365 posts in 365 days is a lot to do but so is my subject for this month. 

For January, I want to focus on planning for the year. As per the title, I want to reset my mindset and rejuvenate myself for the new year. That's the theme for January, and every month of the year is going to have another theme. There are two primary reasons why I'm doing this: to simply write creatively and to figure out what kind of content I want on this blog. 

A Chance To Be Creative 

I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. I write blog posts and stories and journals. This is how I pretty much figure out what's going on in my life, how to handle situations, and a form of therapy and self care. 

I also want this blog to force me to get more creative with my writing. I don't think anyone would be surprised to see that I am incredibly inspired by Taylor Swift's folklore and evermore. I didn't think any of her music would hit me like RED but here we are. I'm also hoping that this will allow me to develop my writing skills. I really want to become a better writer and what better way to do this than to simply...write.   

 What Content Do I Want Here  

I want As Told By Akchita to be a lifestyle blog but I don't entirely know what areas I want to focus on. Maybe I don't even want it to be a lifestyle blog. Maybe this is meant to be blog where I write about the content I create and consume. Or maybe it's a review blog. The point is, I don't know what I want out of this space so this is why way of figuring that out. 

I'm going to have months where I talk about books, movies and music (it was so much fun to listen to all of Taylor Swift's backlog), and even novel writing. January, on the other hand, is probably going to be the most open I'm going to be on this blog. I'm going to be talking about my goals and plans for 2021 (and my five year plan) among other things. 

So, there you have it. It might sound ridiculous to post every single day for an entire year but that is the kind of person I am. Maybe one day I won't be the kind of person who plans such big things but that day is not today.
