Almost two decades after blogging experiences the advent of its popularity, I decide to blog like no one has blogged before. No, really, I'm not following any rules.
Even that whole tense thing I just did back there was awkward. (It's ok, the kids won't notice.. they don't do grammar, do they? Supposed, they won't be reading this though - I'm like, 40 - I digress.. Guess the 'kids' and I have something in common after all. Could it be 'adhd?' Reigning in that tiger. Moving on..
Most blogs have a topic. I don't really want to have 'a topic.' Most blogs are either personal or for business.. I don't really care to specify and I've got no problem blending and mixing the two. One thing I don't plan on being here is 'too deep' though, that's for sure. We've got enough of that going around.
Let's just have some fun here (at least).
I have a theory that in the year 2021, most of what we need to know to be 'successful online', we learned in kindergarten. In fact, anything we learned after that likely hinders us. Okay, maybe kindergarten is pushing it a little far.. say, third grade. By whatever time your basic math and spelling skills were well established, anything afterward was likely inhibiting, over-think inducing and overkill.
Where am I going with this? Well, what I'm saying is I'm probably just going to write here as if I'm writing a first grade style report on what happened during the day. Dare I say it, nothing else is really that fun for people anyway!
"I saw a bird. It flew past my window. It was blue and gray." These are the words that intrigue. These are the kinds of words that inspire. Just admit it. Maybe you've been trying too hard.
..and if you have, don't blame yourself. Blame these confusing times.
Onward to 'highlights of my day' posts of which this is the first installment... Want to join me for the project? I'd love to read your blog / daily highlights too! I'll even help get your blog set up and start it. We can support each other like it's *2009!*
Let's do it! Let's get to writing.
The 'Highlights of my Day' project just entails, essentially, keeping an informal diary of the positively-geared highlights of your day.. and sharing select parts of it publicly on a blog. You can do this, really.
Let's put a stop to overthinking. It is time.
Write even if no one is reading.
