It’s been six months since I committed to blogging every week. The idea of blogging has always appealed to me, but my early attempts failed miserably. I’d get inspired, publish a few posts, then wither away into nothingness. So I became convinced that blogging wasn’t for me. But these past six months have really taught me something. Blogging IS for me. It takes discipline. It takes vulnerability. It takes being in touch with yourself. But I realized that once you discipline yourself to just do it (even when you don’t feel like it), the other things sort of naturally happen. Since I’ve been blogging, I really do feel more in touch with myself and what’s going on in my life.
The past year or so, I haven’t had a very set schedule. Life gets crazy, especially when you start to travel a lot. It becomes difficult to stick to any sort of routine. Knowing that every Monday I have to publish a blog post gives me a small sense of normalcy that I hope will expand over time. Of course, I don’t HAVE to publish a blog every week, but I told a lot of people I would and that has kept me accountable.
This is my 24th blog post. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect when I started. My decision to post weekly has effected me in ways I never would’ve thought. Recently, my inbox has been flooded with a whole bunch of positive responses to my posts. From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thanks for joining me in this adventure. Thanks for listening.
