In ten days, I will have written a blog post every day for three years.
My faithful followers will know that this can only mean one thing: there must be a countdown.
So over the next ten days, I will list, in no particular order, thing’s I’ve learned from blogging (and while blogging) that I did not expect to learn.
One of them is that I can stick with something. I was always the girl who bought a ton of journals and never filled them. Started crafts and never finished them. Started books and never got to the final chapter.
In many ways I’m still that girl. Mostly because there’s not enough hours in the day to do everything that I want to do.
But here’s what I can do: I can write something. Anything. Every day. Even if it’s crud. Sometimes I write something I’m really proud of. Sometimes I write something I hate, yet everyone on the internet likes it. And I’m okay with that.
The point is, The Risible Rambler went beyond finishing something. My goal was to write every day for a year. Now it’s been three.
I didn’t think I could do that.
What a pleasant surprise.
