Alright, I’ve been at this 8 days and I’m already feeling burnt out from this whole “blog for myself once a day” thing. Although, I’m pretty sure that’s the way resolutions work. You start out strong and then after the first week you’re tired of whatever it is you’re doing.
I’ve been writing a lot of posts about resolutions for clients. You’d think they would motivate me to write more here, but so far, they aren’t – and I’m not sure what that says about me.
I think I overestimated myself a bit. I think I thought that after a week of writing every day that I would feel more open to sharing my own thoughts on life, creativity and culture. Yet, I don’t fully feel comfortable doing that. I have a long list of topics that I want to attack… but I’m rambling tonight instead of writing about one of them.
I haven’t yet uncovered why that is. Hopefully, overtime I will break through that block and start talking about more things that matter.
Still, there is something to be said for the fact that I am publishing this post full of nothing more than rambling words. These Dailies really are part of a journal – a collection of thoughts, nothing more, nothing less. That, in and of itself, is an interesting experiment for me.
My job is to write captivating things all of the time. My job is to be interesting. Every word I say must be of value to someone. It’s a bit refreshing to have a space without any of those expectations where I can write pure drivel if I’m so inclined.
