At the end of 2021 I decided that I would strip back from trying to daily blog and just stick with 3 blog posts a week.
I thought that would make things easier but somehow it seemed harder to keep up with.
When I missed a day there was less urgency to catch up and stay on track so it became easy to take breaks.
I’ve had phases where the lack of growth of this blog has lead me to question it’s value and question my approach. There are countless ways of blogging and my short imageless posts about life are probably not the most visually stimulating type of content available for consumption.
But then I think about why I chose to blog this way.
I chose to write short posts so that they’re easy to read and easy to write. I chose to not include pictures because I wanted the focus to be on the words.
I started working on this blog 4 years ago and published my first post on 01/01/2019 but so much has changed since then.
For the month of November 2022, I wrote quite a bit but didn’t post anything and the more time passed the more I felt comfortable with not posting. it made me realise that perhaps this blog is a good thing worth ending.
And for the first time since I started this blog I have no strong resistance to the idea of ending it. I love the idea of dedicating my life to projects and ideas without needing them to last forever. Plus, I’ve done some great posts over the years and writing this blog has brought me so much joy.
But before it ends, I’ve decided to challenge myself to daily blog again because I have at least 150 blog post drafts many of which I think are worth sharing with you.
One thought on “A challenge worth accepting”
That’s interesting that you look at blogging as a project that can be ended. I’ve always wondered how my journey would look too, and how I’d end it. Admittedly, blogging takes up more time than I’d like to admit. And I wonder if it’s worth it sometimes. Anyway, thanks for this post, and wishing you the best regardless of your decision!
