It is becoming a tradition that every August I challenge myself with, a challenge. I love challenges. And this year is no different. In fact, if anything this year I need a distraction. So if you enjoy challenges, you might want to follow along with me as I gear myself up for my annual August challenge!

August Starts Tomorrow

All right. So, August first is tomorrow. And in anticipation of my 31 day challenge, I need to get ready NOW! That means going through my tack room, and making sure everything is out there. You know how you think you have everything you need, and then you find out you don’t? Yeah, that has happened to me on more than one occassion.

So in order to prevent that from happening, I like to prepare in advance.

Gearing Up For My Annual August Challenge

This is easy, because I just had my very own DIY backyard horse show, more on that soon, I promise, and well everything is already in the tack room. It may not be completely organized right now, but everything is out there for sure.

Ok, so the tack room is set, Plezant is good to go, and so am I.

Something else I am doing is committing to having a video each day of my challenge. I know, I have tried this before and failed. BUT this time, I was planning ahead, and started filming early. So I am much more confident I will be able to complete this.

I guess I am double-y challenging myself this August. Not only am I committing myself to work with Plezant daily, but a video every day too. Talk about ambitious!

August is VEDA Month

And a long standing YouTube challenge that I have tried many times is VEDA which stands for vlog every day in August (or April). And while I have tried, I have never been able to complete it. But this is a new year, a very different year too. So maybe, just maybe I will be able to get it done.

The videos won’t be long, but at least one time a day I will be putting out a video.

Something else fun that I have recently learned about on YouTube is having a premier video. And since I got lots of footage from my DIY horse show, I am thinking about having an additional video premier each week. This will be a busy month for sure! But it will also be a fantastical distraction from all of the COVID stuff that is still going on.
