A Month of Blogging

A month and some change ago I took on the challenge of writing a blog post every day. Actually, blog posts are for losers. I write essays! So posh. Anyway!  Some takeaways:

  1. It’s hard to find something to write about every day. Maybe for some people, it’s easy. Not for me. My life is not that interesting.
  2. I have developed a genuine appreciation for websites that help you find beautiful images on a free Creative Commons license. www.pexels.com and http://compfight.com, thank you!
  3. The claim that a habit is formed in 21 days is a lie. Some days it’s a pleasure to write, but on others, it’s still a chore.
  4. It is incredibly gratifying to see that people are reading this every day. To all of you, THANK YOU!
  5. Doing this is neither more nor less enjoyable than writing for work (www.distantjob.com/blog) and than writing my fantasy fiction novels. It’s a different type of writing. It is not a change of pace. But it’s training. After a month, I feel that I am slightly better at articulating what goes on inside my head.

That’s all, folks! (See you here tomorrow.)
