Happy New Year, everyone!
2014 is almost seven days old and I feel like I missed out on that window where all bloggers are required to write something deep and meaningful about the past year, and what the new year will bring.
You know, something powerful where they raise their fists in the air and declare 2014 the Year of Blogging Regularly! Or something.
As I sit here, I got nothing.
I mean, I’ve got some things. A new house. A longer commute. Kids who have selective hearing. (Must be hereditary.) A larger mortgage.
In other words, things nobody really wants to read about.
But as I write that sentence, I wonder. Does it matter if you want to read about it?
I know that a lot of blogs are written with a specific audience in mind, with the goal of drawing in as many readers as possible, with the ultimate goal being, well, I’m not sure what. We all know you can’t make any money blogging.
But I started this blog with the sole intention of having a place to put down my thoughts in a way that is (hopefully) entertaining. I don’t intend to stop in 2014.
However, I do intend to blog regularly, even if it’s just once a week.
When I write, I feel better about myself. And if I feel better about myself, everybody wins. (More exercise helps, too.)
There really are no negatives to putting more thoughts down. Heck, I don’t even need to hit the publish button. Typing can be therapeutic.
So I guess I’m here to say that if you didn’t come up with any resolutions in 2014, that’s okay.
There’s still time to come up with something.
And if you don’t want to, that’s okay, too.
