Leaving for Alaska tomorrow!
Today was a casual day with friends and family, enjoying some chill time before the adventure begins.
I also thought a lot about why I set a goal to blog every day. Blogging daily is a lot of work. Some days I don’t have a lot to say, but here are some of the reasons I’ve resolved to stick with it.
I don’t want to have a blog with 6 posts on it. There’s nothing I dislike more than finding a website you love and getting through all the pages in half an hour. That’s not my style, and I think having lots of posts will (hopefully) help lots of people find something they like!
Finding my voice.
I’m new to this blogging thing, and I don’t know exactly where I want to go. Growing is a process and the more opportunities I give myself to write the more I’ll be able to explore what I want to write and what my audience wants to read.
The idea for this blog is to keep it going for the next 10 years. 10 years. That’s a long time, and I know that I won’t blog every day for all of that time. This year I want to build momentum while I can and start the website and my blogging journey strong.
Practice makes perfect.
If not perfect, practice at least makes me better. Once again, I’m new to blogging. Posting every day gives me a chance to practice writing, promoting, and tweaking my blog. It gives me plenty of content, data, and experience in one year. I plan to learn a lot, and I’ll share it all here. Stick around.
Now I’m off to make final preparations for Alaska. Goodnight guys!
