This is my 31st blog post this year: I have reached the first (little) step in my goal of posting something every day in 2013.
Coming up with something to say every day has been surprisingly hard at times and surprisingly easy at others. Finding time for writing down a couple of thoughts every day has been a challenge, but not big enough to keep me from hitting publish, it seems.
I think it’s too early to say anything profound about blogging. In a way, I feel like Forrest Gump, when he talks about running:
“That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I’d just run across the great state of Alabama. And that’s what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I’d gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going.”
No big motive drives me to these blog posts. At the moment, after over a year of not blogging at all, the daily habit of publishing blog posts just feels good.
And so, I might as well just keep blogging for another month.
