Finish line crossed. Goal achieved. Expanded levels unlocked. I did it! Today is the final day of the 10 days to a better blog workshop and I’m proud to say that I’ve made it all the way through! I’ve been able to blog consistently for 10 days, but MORE importantly, I’ve been able to develop some patterns, habits, and goals to help me move forward. I’ve met some great fellow bloggers (digitally) and now have their stories to add to my reading list for encouragement and inspiration. Today is also a day of reflection upon the process and here are some things that come to mind.
It’s a new year, and while I’ve always jumped off and on the bandwagon with New Years resolutions, this year there’s a few things that I’m definitely going to do. One of them is expanding this blog more.
I’ve kept the blog primarily geared towards my “geekish coding” type posts, but I think it needs to expand out more. I need to put a little more “me” into my blog. If I’ve learned anything over the past year, it’s that we are a people of stories. Not in the “fantastical things that keep you avoiding the truth” kind of the stories, but in the “legacy” kind of stories. Things that go back far beyond ourselves, and shape it at the same time.
Combine this with the privilege I’ve had of helping test a great blog/story telling app called Desk and it seems like the perfect time to expand more. We’ll add the icing to the cake that Desk’s creator, John Saddington, has added a 10 day workshop to a better blog and it seems like the perfect time to get it all together.
So here we go. It’s time to see what I’m going to add to this new year, and newish blog. 8^D
