Halfway #366Days Day 184

Today is the first day of the second half of my #366Days blogging journey. I’m officially on the downhill side of the challenge. I’ve been reflecting on the journey and have a few thoughts to share.

  1. Writing every day is addictive. Some days I write my post early and then feel cheated when I don’t get to use the post to reflect on something I learned that day. 
  2. Writing is hard every day, but some days it’s pretty near impossible. The night I stood in the hallway at Redmond and wrote a post that said “I said I would post so here you go” comes to mind. What I didn’t tell then was that we’d just survived a horrific experience. It was 11:45 pm and that’s all I had to give. 
  3. Committing to writing every day has been good for me. It’s built confidence, consistency and courage. 
  4. Sometimes I use my blog posts as an excuse to not work on my other writing projects. I sometimes wonder if I didn’t put the pro in procrastination. And, after all, I am writing…
  5. I still wonder if anyone’s out there. I don’t write for the Facebook likes, the shares, or even comments online or in person, but it helps when I get them. I feel less like I’m talking to myself. 

When I first started this journey, I wondered what I’d find to talk about every day. Now I’m starting to wonder how I will ever have enough time to even scratch the surface.

  1. Congratulations on getting to the halfway mark! So amazing! I know I don’t always comment, but I’ve read every post and I am always thankful for the inspiration. So proud of you!

  2. Oh, Dawn, I read them everyday and I ENJOY them everyday! It’s very often things I am thinking myself or your posts bring up things I have not thought of in a while. I think it is a great thing that you committed to do, glad you are learning from it and happy that we are able to share it with you.!
