Over the last few weeks, I have had a harder and harder time coming up with ideas to write about. I started this blog with the intention of sharing kindness and while it is never “un”kind, it has gone off track a bit. Some days I have absolutely no problem writing. An idea comes to me during the day and I am set. Other times, I see a quote or story that I know would be perfect to share.
The was one of those nights where I sat at the computer asking the kids or Dave to help me with an idea. Dave asked me just how many days in a row I have written. Today is the 325th day of the year so, since I write everyday, today is blog number 690. That means, nearly 700 blogs about me, my life, the world around me….and I wondered….would anyone notice if I didn’t write one? If I missed a day? I do have “followers” (that always astounds me.,) and they aren’t even just my family!! Over 200 of them. Would they notice if I didn’t write one? My sister and dad would. A few friends might realize, but really, would it be a big deal?
I think at this point, I am writing more for myself, a diary of sorts perhaps? I get comments after every post so I know it is being read but on nights like tonight when I feel like what I am writing is such a bore, really, would it matter if I didn’t share? For now, I will at least keep it up until the end of the year. With only 42 more days to go, I can do it. They might not be the most exciting stories to share, you might hear more about what I made for dinner, or why I like to shop locally, but I will write. Even if I am only doing it for myself.
