I am thankful I began this experiment over 18 months ago.
Blogging everyday about something I was/am thankful for was both an epic failure and a colossal success.
Failure: the bar–posting every day--was unrealistic, even though I still have more ideas and themes than I can possibly handle that I could post every day. Daily posting just isn’t realistic for me, as demonstrated by the lack of posts for nearly a year, and very sporadic posts prior to that.
Success: two things–1) learning about the grind of a daily posting requirement, even if it was self imposed and could have easily been changed. I could even have gone on writing binges and scheduled things well in advance…which I actually did a couple of times. 2) Developing a better attitude of gratitude. Is it a daily practice, as was my original intent? Not by a long shot. Am I generally more thankful. I think I can say “yes” to that. Not consistently, but overall.
I especially wish to thank those of you who, once upon a time, elected to follow this blog, for whatever reasons you may have had. I’m sorry I didn’t have the chops to keep a steady stream of some kind posted for you.
I will be transforming this domain (jeffreymdstormer.com) for my business launch in the very near future. (First part of June?)
Same great name (not that I’m biased or anything), totally new content and focus.
It’s been an eye-opening experiment. I learned quite a bit about myself and about blogging in general, and for that, I am thankful.
