Alright, I’m in, I suppose. I can’t believe I’m doing this! We’ll see how it goes.
I stumbled across this Blog 365 Challenge at http://blog365.ning.com/. The challenge is to blog every day for a year. Okay, I guess. Like a sucker I decided to go for it. Probably not a smart thing to do considering I’m feeling pretty stale in my writing these days and pretty discouraged about it all. I mean, there are some really cool blogs out there and, well, mine’s not one of them…yet. It could be like blog vitamins, this one a day thing or it could spell the death knell for my blog.
But then I tell myself, “Self, you didn’t start this blog thing to take the world by storm, you started this for you so you could practice and get more confident about writing.”
“Yeah, yeah. I suppose,” I reply back impatiently, thinking all the while that I’m not sure I’m any more confident and I’m only a little better…sigh.
What I know is this, to write the good stuff, the stuff that’s thoughtful, intelligent and actually meaningful which might hopefully spark some discussion takes time and that time, at least for me, doesn’t occur in large enough quantities on a daily basis. Therefore, writing every day is almost becoming a death knell since the only thing I can do is something random and unplanned, like this. My time doesn’t exactly free up when I go back to school in the fall either. Oh, what have I done??????
But this Blog 365 was something different and if I don’t make it, who cares? Right?
I’ll care, I know I will. I’m just like that.
