Think of your blog as a mirror: what does it reveal? Consider your blog name, theme choice, design, bio, posts… what does every element tell you about yourself?
Writing a post a day has definitely been a challenge, but I needed to commit myself to the task. It’s been a year and half, and my blogs are less frequent now, but I’m still trying to apply myself regularly to writing. The challenge continues, especially to move more into developing my own ideas. I’m pleased that I’ve kept up pretty well with the Challenge and been able to think outside the box and think of something to write on topics that have been put forward. Sometimes I have no idea what I’ll say when I start writing, but eventually ideas develop.
I’ve had the opportunity to explore my life up ’til now: the joys, the sadness, problems I’ve had to face and overcome, weaknesses — the whole me. It’s been therapeutic in a way, but much of it I’ve come to terms with; some things I’m still trying to understand and make improvement.
The banner on my post show the place I love the most, St. Andrews, Scotland. It’s the home of my soul. It almost makes me believe in reincarnation — I feel such a connection to it that I had found in no other place.
Writing is still a challenge. More than that, writing for children which is still a goal for me: it’s just so hard.
Another benefit has been meeting other people and reading about things I can really relate to, or empathize with. There are so many blogs, and so many people — many with real ability to communicate, others with remarkable talents to share. There are not enough hours in a day to do anything but scratch the surface of the blogosphere.
Kudos to all the people who have revealed so much about themselves and their lives; I hope that some of my words and thoughts have also resonated with others.
