Here marks blog post #200. Wow! Look how far we’ve come. I started this in the beginning sludge of the pandemic in April 2020. Now it’s November 2021. I have a full time job. I’m sitting in my office in person while I write this. It took me 1 year and 7 months to get to 200 entries. That’s not bad at all.
From entry #1 (my original goal was #100 entries).
“The goal is for these next 98 posts to be in the next 98 days. But no guarantees because you lose motivation and all that jazz.”
And man oh man did I lose “motivation and all that jazz”. Instead of 98 posts in 98 days, I did 200 posts in like ~575 days. I mean that’s not terrible. Instead of a 1:1 ratio, it was more so 1:3. Which is so passable. I’m proud.
Reading blog post #2 on virginity was so fascinating. I don’t remember writing it. Some of the points are so profound! I surprised myself.
My blog style became short and snappy as I got lazier and lazier. Now this practice is to learn how to ship work (Seth Godin) and overcome writer’s block. I also wrote that I would quit if I got literally 0 views across the board. I have maybe like 4 views from people that aren’t me? And I don’t give a shit what they think. Who gives a shit what they think. I’m writing for myself, and if it applies to you then hurray. I’m putting my thoughts on paper, learning how to think critically and also surface level and sending it out to the world.
Can we get to #300? Let’s aim for #210 first. Thanks for reading. Writing is great, even when, maybe especially when you don’t feel like it.
