Post a day

So far, I’ve managed a blog post every day this year. I’ve already posted more this month than I managed to post for all of last year.

One of my goals this year is to have a blog post every day. Some days may have more (i.e. longer) content than others, but I aim to have something for every day this year. This is my version of the 365day photo projects others do. I should probably do one of those as well, as I’m certainly interested in photography, but I’m not going to start that in January. Maybe I’ll start a 365 day photo project in the summer, or maybe I’ll start a weekly photo posting soon.

So, what will I be blogging about? The most obvious concerns will be related to reading and writing, primarily science fiction. I will be commenting on interesting topics and concerns in my classes, and things of interest that come up in the news.

You can likely expect some posts in the next few months about Homer’s Odyssey. Once I get things a little more organized, I may try to schedule certain topics for certain days. For example, I may review books on Thursdays, or something. Right now, the concern is to get words written, and published in a timely fashion.

One of the reasons for getting a regular blogging schedule in place will be to transition from blog writing to fiction writing. I have several story ideas floating around, with some outlines written down. I’d really like to get back to writing them. It’s been said that writing is a muscle that needs to be exercised, and I have found that once I’ve started writing anything, it’s much easier to keep going on other projects.

Feel free to stick around. There should be an RSS feed around here somewhere, for those who are inclined. Better yet, sound off in the comments. Discussion can be fun. Hopefully I’ll be at least mildly entertaining or informative at least part of the time.

    1. Yeah, it’s going to be an interesting challenge. I’m already seeing some benefits though, as once the words start flowing for the blog, I can then transition to other creative writing. A nice thing about WordPress, and probably other blogging platforms, is that you can schedule postings, which allows you to write a few days in advance. Especially useful for the days where you know you’re not going to be near the internet.
      It also means that my posts should be posted near the same time every day as well, which is nice.

      Are you thinking of starting one of your own?

  1. I am. I haven’t quite had the time yet, what with the new little one and all, but it seems like a great way to keep limber.
