September 1st of last year, I decided to get back into blogging. Back in 2013, I was regularly blogging and it continued through part of 2014. Then it seemed to fizzle. With one post in 2015 and no posts in 2016. None in 2017 until I revisited the idea of blogging.
I set out to blog weekly. September 1st of last year was a Friday, so I decided to hit my restart button that day and shoot for blogging weekly, posting on Fridays. At some point, I even decided to schedule the posts for 11:11. Although I am not 100% sure I had the time zone set correctly, but still….
I also decided not to write ahead much. I wanted to actually write my post the week it would go out. And I did that every single week, except for the week I went to Hawaii. I do think there is something powerful about sitting down weekly and creating a blog post. It is a way for me to connect to the world with where I am that week. What’s on my mind shows up, whether it stems from a conversation with a friend or client….or from a training I attended….or a book I am reading. It means a lot to me that I can share a piece of myself with others.
I don’t flippantly share on here. If I recommend something, I do it myself. I am always doing my own work. We need to do this work in order to do this work. Bits of the posts come from my own work and I thank you for honoring my space here. I hear from a handful of you, in the real world…and there is an occasional comment on a blog post. If there are quiet readers, I appreciate you as well, for taking the time to be a witness to my sharing.
