This blogging everyday thing. I'm starting to think it's another one of those life things that happens for a reason. We all need some sort of anchor to make us just sit, and think and contemplate life. Not just where we are, but where we're going. At this point in life, everything is a milestone of some sort, or a stepping stone. You're 25, you are single and childless, SO WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT!!! Not about being single and childless, but what are you going to do with this gift of singleness and lack of attachment to any city? You go.
Everyday I'm drawn to bloggers. Some for their outlandish behavior, their truth, their wife and mother thing, their positivity, their humor, but most of all, their realness. Just being themselves. That's why I started this blog. As a way to be myself. To get ME out there because you can't keep all this fabulousness to yourself!! :) What I didn't expect was the connections. The people I likely never would have met in anyway. My eyes have been opened to a whole other journalism community I didn't even know existed. The young, black movers and shakers taking over your newrooms around the country. I am NOT an island unto myself. YEAH!!
You know how some posts just come out and there they are, they just flow? This isn't one of those posts. When you have so much to say, sometimes you just don't know where to start. So you start at the beginning. In the beginning was the blog. But where do I go from here? That's what this daily blog thing has already done for me. Made me think about discipline. Because you start to think, hourly, about how you will let the world in today. And can you really do this? Can you really commit to writing every single day for 30 days? But then you think, is it that hard? 30 days isn't so bad. And THEN you think of all the other things you can conquer.
