Time to Measure Up
For those of you that have been with me from the very beginning of this blog or for those that are just joining in, my New Year’s resolution was to blog every day for the 2012 year. As the month of January ended yesterday, I figured it was time to measure up. Was I able to blog every day for the entire month?
The short answer is: No. The longer answer would be to tell you about how life sometimes gets in the way, things crop up or you just might not feel like parking your butt in front of the computer when you get home after a day of staring at monitors and getting no where. Some if not all of those points are true on some occasions.
But rather than be disappointed that I have already broken my New Year’s resolution, maybe I should celebrate what I have accomplished. Not only did I post 27 blogs (this will make number 28), I have 15 followers! Woo hoo! To each and every one of you: You Rock!
With that being said, I think I will amend my resolution to having the goal of 365 posts (minimum) this year. So if I get really ambitious and the writing muse is perched noisily on my shoulder, I may post several times a day. Thus far, my muse has been only slightly inspirational at times. A muse with writer’s block, go figure.
When I was making my resolution for 2012, I thought about it for days before finally deciding on the blogging thing. And what may seem like a great idea at first, something that would be easy peasy because I love to write so much, is really a lot more work than even I realized. After all, who wants to hear me tell my version of what happened at work today? Probably no one, simply because, we all have “stuff” going on and what makes my day so spectacular that it warrants writing about and you reading it?
So worry not, unless there was something exceptionally humorous or tragic or very out of the ordinary, you will not be getting a play by play of my day. Then the question becomes, what does one write about each and every day for an entire year?
I’m sure I could go down to the local bookstore or library or even look it up in iBooks on my iPad, but who wants to admit to reading “Blogging for Dummies“. Yes, I have checked and yes, such a book exists. And no, I have not read it. Still the question remains, what does one write about to keep the readers interested?
Either a little bit of everything or a lot of something. There is something out there for everyone’s preference. But for me, I’m swaying more on the side of a little bit of everything. Must be the Gemini in me.
