And so here I find myself at the last day of June and the final every day of June blog. It has been quite a ride and I have to admit I have enjoyed it far more than I thought. Although I do admit some nights it has felt like a chore, and I have just wanted to go to bed. I am kind of sad my June experience is over. I have found the experience very cathartic and feel my writing is now freer than it has ever been. The sheer experience of making myself write every day and the intellectual process that goes into writing a blog has been great for me creatively. I was musing tonight with colleagues from around the country, about what I was going to write about and what I would do next. Many ideas were flying around for my final blog for June, many from me, but not all. However, I have decided that I will just finish with a few observations about the month and my blog journey.
- It's not easy to try an keep it fresh and blog every day. The temptation is there to fall into a formula or write drivel about anything just to fill space. I hope that I did not do that.
- Writing when you are tired is so hard. Your brain cannot open itself up as well and it really can be quite painful
- Blogging can be very cathartic and I found myself constantly having to walk the line between sharing and over sharing
- Even one positive comment, makes the time you spent writing all the more worthwhile
So with that, I think I will call June to a close. However, I have decided to keep on blogging. This is a purely selfish decision, I love the experience and the way my writing is changing. Hopefully though, at least 1 or 2 people will continue to read my missives when they come and hopefully I will continue to enjoy the writing and sharing.
