Wandering through my Instagram feed today and there’s an ad from Leonie Dawson. I used to follow her years ago, but stopped somewhere along the line. Check her feed and there was something about “Press Publish Every Day” – a post she’d written about missing blogging and how she was going to post (almost) every day of December last year.
And in that post was a link to another article about daily blogging, and then another link in that one, and one more. Also in those posts were mentions of social media apps preferring people don’t blog, but use their apps instead.
Message getting louder.
Then I’m catching up on my blog feed here on WordPress and Melissa Cynova has a hashtag #WellCynova and “Day 1”, “Day 2”, “Day 3” blog posts. I love her plan for the tarot cards and am adopting that for my own use, too.
The foghorn; so loud.
Her posts, which are obviously daily now, are about getting healthy. My feeling for the year is Light, which once I started writing down the details of how to feel that way, proved to have different sub-feelings than in that post, and turned out to be mainly about my health – mental, physical, and spiritual.
Alright, alright…I get it, ‘verse, I get it!
So I’m jumped on the bandwagon, so to speak. I’m going to write something every day for at least a week, and if it’s going well and I’m feeling my bloggin’ groove again (and no one comments and tells me enough is enough), longer. They won’t be marketing posts (thank goodness, cuz I suck at them), just whatever comes to mind like how we blogged when we all started out years ago.
I’ve intended to write more, and have written about that intention, over the past couple years, but I fall back into the social media web and the fact that, as mentioned, I suck at marketing myself, so that intention always falls to the wayside.
Follow along if you’d like…or don’t. I don’t know how many people still read blogs, or if they want to read daily posts, but as Leonie said, I miss writing. And I really need a break from Twitter.
I just realized I don’t even have a single picture in this (major blogging no-no) and I don’t even care.
PS: I may borrow Melissa’s hashtag idea, too.
