Once in awhile I participate in Five Minute Friday. The idea is to write for five minutes flat with one word as an inspiration and to share the blog with others in a blog share. Today’s prompt is BEGIN. Appropriate for the first day of a new month. I find myself turning to Five Minute Fridays on days where I need to find inspiration to write. I often come to days like today where I feel uninspired and not sure of what to write about. I write a lot about life and it seems rather ordinary so on those days where nothing exciting or interesting has happened, beginning that new blog for the day, is a struggle. When I began this blog 19 months ago, with the intention to write everyday for one year, I never could have known where or how it would have turned out. Today, I have just under 92,000 views.
For some bloggers who are able to reach huge audiences and have advertisers and many followers, this might not seem like much, but for me – when I began with the intention of just spreading kindness and perhaps inspiring others – it is something I could never have imagined. I didn’t even know if I’d be able to maintain writing for the entire year but I am so glad I did and I am glad that I was encouraged to keep writing.
