(Note: Our Internet was down for three days, so this post is being posted on July 14, 2022, though I wrote it on July 12, the day I consider it “published”)
Okay, so here we are at Day 10 of my renewed 365 Day Blog Project. Honestly, even after starting this up again I wondered whether I actually wanted to do it. As it happens, I had repeatedly started and stopped this blog several times before, including at the beginning of the year. I guess these starts and stops made me a bit unsure about committing to a daily post. I also wondered if I was I really behind doing it for 365 days in a row. Was I fooling myself?
My answer came as I worked on my post on Day 5. I was writing about Cryptocurrency and sharing my opinion that not only does not it seem to be a good investment, but also that I wonder if there is a Crypto bubble about to pop. While I was writing this, something happened for me: I found I was enjoying myself. I thought, “Wow, this is… still fun!”
And I thought, “I guess I really AM doing this daily blog thing again, after all!”
There’s something about writing on here that feels like freedom, like an absence of pressure. It feels like I get a free pass from worrying AND I get to share my thoughts with the world, which I do enjoy. It’s a lovely thing, like coming up for air. I seem to get a break from my own mind. I don’t need to censor myself, I don’t need to strategize, I don’t need to play a part for anybody else or for any other cause than my personal expression.
It is indeed a perfect match.
And that’s why, I’m happy to say that, as for the daily blogging, we’re good to go 🙂
