I started a blog. I haven't looked at it for a long time, but tonight I found myself wanting to write. Out of curiosity, I checked the date of my first post and to my surprise, found that tomorrow marks my three year blogiversary. I only kept it current for a short time, but it led me to so many interesting people and even to the opportunity to publish. Who knew?
I got busy and quit posting, but sometimes I wonder if I also stopped writing because I was afraid. (Of what, I'm not sure--success? failure? being able to write something worth reading? losing readers? getting comments? becoming consumed with how to turn my ordinary day into a blog post?)
Well, here's to conquering fear. Maybe it will mean more posts, or an essay submitted for publication. Or maybe it will mean that I keep my journal more regularly--I haven't decided.
On the other hand, maybe it just means that I'm avoiding going to bed, will have a handful of chocolate chips and forget all about this blog for a loooong time.
What's your prediction?
