“Doesn’t matter if improvements are big or small just be consistent.” – Bryce Ward 4/15/2021
100 posts. Can you believe that? Over three years ago, I started blogging, and in the past year alone, I have written 50 posts. Fifty weeks of my life are recorded on this website. My thoughts, opinions, ideas, and questions are all here.
Why Do I Blog?
I guess in the short answer; I blog to keep myself sane. Every week I get the opportunity to prove to myself that I am making progress in my life. Whether it’s learning a new skill or discussing my experience house hunting, it’s one small step at a time for me. I don’t want to be making leaps in my life only to find myself over a cliff. No, I think slow, consistent progress works best for me.
Beyond recording my progress to keep myself sane, blogging has been very beneficial in my life. I have been about to use this website to share with clients and employers proof of my abilities, from weekly writings to learning video editing for YouTube. That was one reason I got my job with Stupid Raisins, and I suspect this blog will help me land future opportunities. Plus, my blog gives a strong impression of who I am and how I see the world. I know my girlfriend read a few of my posts to make sure she wasn’t dating a crazy person.
When it comes to the long run writing a blog has become much cheaper than pursuing a college degree. I have even cut out much of the filler writing that the school taught me to make a five-page report.
Overall, blogging has been a big win for me, and I hope to continue improving.
Hey, thank you for reading this week’s post! I’m real proud of myself for reaching 100 posts and consistently writing for 50 weeks. Have you completed a blog challenge to write consistently before?
