10 Things I Learned From 33 Days of Blogging

33 Days; 33 blog posts.

I set a goal for myself to write a blog post every day for a month, but had so much fun I lost count.

Here are ten things I’ve learned over the past month.

  1. I like blogging more than I thought I would.
  2. I can be happy with writing as an end to itself. I’ve always been a theatre guy. In my mind performance has always been the end goal, and writing has just been a step towards that goal. Over the past month I’ve started to see that writing itself can be a goal.
  3. If I don’t like what I’m writing it will suck.
  4. The discipline of writing something every day helps my brain.
  5. There’s always something left in the tank. The last month covered the holidays, there were lots of days when I came home from work utterly exhausted. I didn’t always feel like writing, but I always was able to churn something out.
  6. I am naturally creative, but I turn it off sometimes. Blogging has helped me to pay attention to my creative ideas.
  7. Having other people appreciate your work is energizing. I’m so grateful for all of the comments, likes and follows you all have given me over the past month. It’s so great that I’m not the only person who like what I write. Thank you!
  8. I’ve enjoyed getting around and reading some other blogs. Some of you people are writing really good stuff!
  9. It’s easier for me to be humorous than to be serious. I struggle with depression. There’s a lot in my life that I’m not happy about, but I can’t bring myself to write the bad stuff. At least not yet.
  10. I’m not done. I plan on continuing to use this blog as a vehicle for writing every day. I’m looking forward to this.

Shameless plug: if you you find my writings/musings/stupidities interesting I would love it if you followed this blog.

I try to not be boring.

  1. My experience has been similar, except that I only post once a week (Fridays). I am a perfectionist (retired English teacher) so I spend a great deal of time editing my stuff – also trying to keep each post under 1000 words, which is challenging at times, but I know how busy people are. If they see one that goes on and on, they will think, “Forget it” and not read any of it.
    Speaking of going on and on, I’ll stop now, just wanting to say, “Welcome to the blogging world.”

  2. I’m so glad you are blogging regularly. I look forward to reading your posts every day. I also struggle with depression, but joking with you on your blog brings some relief. 😊
