I am continuing the task of revisiting old posts and putting them into categories. I can barely remember the reason I committed to writing every day. Sometimes I slip into revising as though I were getting ready to publish the blogs, then I catch myself. It is difficult to read old blogs and realize that I have written some really poor ones. I can see stretches of time when the commitment to write every day was my only reason to write. This is the dark side of such a commitment. Nothing to write about? Write anyway. Feeling no inspiration? Write from your emptiness. Feeling grey? Force it. It all came through.
No place to hide. It is what it is.

Judy, 9 times out of 10 I find your blogs very interesting and enjoyable to read along with often learning something. Thank you. and the “other” ones are usually a topic I am not interested in.
Mom, check out Michael Hyatt’s post on blog frequency: http://michaelhyatt.com/blogging-frequency.html
I am not sure I get this. I am not much concerned with getting more people to read my blog. I am concerned, however, whether my blogs offer anything of value. Value can be insight or humor or just plain good writing. I realize that value is verified by people coming back again and by their wanting to comment. I also think that there needs to be some frequency. I know for myself, I have stopped visiting blogs that don’t have something new fairly often.
I have been writing for myself for so many years, I guess I am finding it hard to shift into another gear.
Thanks for the link, though.
What exactly does Michael Hyatt do?
