One month ago, I started a blogging challenge.
I’ve never been a consistent blogger, so I set a goal to post at least once a day for one month. Now I’ve come to the end of a successful month of blogging, and it feels really good to look back on what I’ve done.
Not everything I wrote was valuable, but it all served to get thoughts out. I also found that being forced to write every day made me think more deeply throughout the day.
I read a very thoughtful post by Shawn Blanc recently. It explained how we reach our full potential by using technology to create, not mindlessly consume. I’d agree with him. When I look at my list of blog posts, I have real satisfaction with seeing my creations.
On the other hand, there’s no satisfaction from mindlessly scrolling.
So what now? Will I continue to write every day? I think I might. I really enjoyed doing this, and for the forseeable future, I’ll continue posting my thoughts (mostly) every day.
