Why do I blog everyday? What’s that about? Why not just do it occasionally, when I really have something to say?
Because for whatever reason, it has been meaningful for me to do it everyday. And helpful. There’s something about the consistency that I just like. No surprise there, I’m Mr. Slow and Steady Machine.
To be fair, during my second 365 Day Blogging Project I have been flexible about taking days off. Looking back, I see that I began Year Two on July 3rd of last year. If I had written every day for a year, I would finish the 365th post on July 2nd. Instead, as I am currently on Day 273, I have 92 more days (or three months) of posts to reach 365 after today. Since today is May 3rd, that means we’re looking at an August 3rd finish for this round of blogging, assuming I take no more days off.
There are two particularly interesting things about this:
- Without meaning to, I have taken exactly a month off while blogging for Year Two (most of that was during my Holiday blogging break).
- Also without meaning to, it turns out that my presumed finish date, August 3rd, just happens to be exactly the date I finished my first year of 365 Day Blogging!
I’m loving the synchronicities!
Since we’re comparing my two years of daily blogs, I shall close tonight’s session by sharing a quote from Day 273 of Year One of the 365 Day Blogging Project:
To me, a joyful action is one that inspires and satisfies a person. Because of this, everyone else inherently benefits from it, whether they realize it or not. If a person follows their bliss, and lives a live they love, they will tend to be a happier person overall. They will tend to smile more, and desire to give more to others. People around them will receive the benefit of their joy.Day 273: As You Define It, May 3, 2019
This paragraph summarizes why I do my blog 🙂
And of course, notice the post was today’s date exactly four years ago!
