When I started this blog, my purpose was to alleviate stress and practice writing skills while attempting to entertain my family and chronicle the events of my life.
Not sure how well I have done in each area but I keep plugging away.
The truth is that now I mostly write so I can express some of my feelings about different subjects. Sort of like an on-line journal (but with less detail).
I also read many blogs and wonder how it is that some of these folks have so much time. One fellow, in particular, is a very busy man and yet he seems to have enough time to make several entries per day (see here). My past year was my best and I only made 45 entries.
My little girl (here) is much more diligent and seems to be able to work around 6 kids, a husband with multiple jobs, RS President worries, Crohn’s disease, yard work, housework, and a million other things. Yet she posts several times a week and is bright, literate and funny every single time.
Not that I’m comparing myself to either of these people (OK, I am just a bit), but it seems I could be more consistent in taking care of this little gem.
No promises, but my hope is that this year I will be able to increase visits to my blog and offer slightly more for the three people who like to read what I write. Check back at the end of the year and let’s talk about how it went.
