Year-end reflections on blogging

I haven’t blogged for a while. For some reason, I just grew weary of blogging. It didn’t help that the keyboards I use with my iPad Pro often don’t work. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t, and it’s frustrating enough to make me put blogging aside.

Recently, I read again what Seth Godin had to say about blogging. Blog (even if no one else reads your blog) because it does something for you. It’s a way to improve oneself. Blogging helps to clarify your thoughts about things you’re interested in. It helps you generate ideas and sharpen them. So blog everyday.

So here I am again giving it another try. I preach in my church once in a while and I realize that blogging serves as a way of preparing for the time I actually get to stand in the pulpit. That alone should be enough to motivate me to blog everyday.

Also, I get to hone my thinking and writing skills. I need to do this regularly even if only for the sake of my law practice. And I get to share thoughts that may benefit those who get to read them. The poems I post here get a few likes now and then by people who are real poets, and I find that encouraging.

Seth says he blogs without bothering to check the stats. I resonate with that. Just blog. Everyday. Because it´s good for you. It helps you even if no one else reads your blog. So here I go again. I don´t know how long I´ll be able to keep this up, but there´s no harm in trying again.
