In Jonathan Vieker’s wonderful post, Does Failure Encourage Compassion for Others?, he mentions a student excuse for not going to class anymore.
I missed biology a few times. I meant to start going again, but I was really embarrassed about walking into the classroom after missing a week and a half. So I just … didn’t go back.
That is what will happen to my blogging if I don’t come back. I’ll just stop.
One of my unwritten resolutions of 2017 was to blog an average of 1.5 times every 2 weeks. There were several reasons why I did not write it down.
- I already have a pretty solid, exhaustive list that will keep me busy.
- Originally, by “Blog Post Ideas” list grew more quickly than I could write blogs. At the time of writing my resolutions, this list was shrinking more than growing. In short, I was a scaredy-pants.
- Quitting Facebook was my first blog post after quitting Facebook. I think I knew in the back of my head that blogging more was going to help me make that transition, and I didn’t know what would happen once that transition was complete.
- One of my resolutions involves studying and passing the MLC exam. This requires a LOT of intense study time.
- My blog doesn’t have much structure. I’m torn between liking that fact and just going with it, and building more structure so that I could possibly build my readership.
