National Blog Post Month
I wasn’t really sure I could do it.
At the beginning of the month, I was afraid to say I was going to do it, in case it was (yet) another project I bailed on.
So I just did it. One day at a time. Okay, a few posts were very late in the day. But I posted on this blog every day in November.
Every. Single. Day. Go me!
Now I kind of want to shout it from the rooftops. It is neither a huge nor significant accomplishment in itself, but it is both huge and significant to me, to have done it.
Some things I learned/noticed along the way:
- It’s fun to create a lot.
- It’s way easier to let go of perfect when I’m posting quick + dirty.
- I have a lot of writing ideas. I don’t develop nearly all of them.
- It’s okay to have both long-form and short posts – variety is interesting.
- It’s easier to share my photos if I post more often.
- Photos are part of my storytelling gift.
- Writing more often made my writing better, looser, more relaxed.
- Writing more made me want to write more.
- I definitely don’t want to post every day, all the time.
- I’ll likely do this again – it was very stimulating.
Thank you for reading along with me. (And thank you to Catherine, who noticed the deluge of posts in her reader and congratulated me on it.)
