I’m publishing a blog post daily for 30 days just to see what happens.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the monotony of our day-to-day lives.
Wake up → eat → commute → work → eat → work → commute → exercise → eat → read → sleep → wake up → etc. etc. etc.
Well, I’m changing something. I’m trying something new. I’m trying something for the first time. I’m doing something for myself.
For the next 30 days I’m publishing a blog post daily. Just to see what happens. I have no idea what has compelled me to do this. I do know that it feels right in this moment (as I’m writing) and that in the spirit of this project I will hit the publish button as soon as I’m finished writing — just so I’m made accountable.
As I write this it’s around 930pm on a Sunday night. My daughter is asleep. I’ve said goodnight over the phone to my dear wife who is currently overseas on business.
As I sat here a moment ago ready to close the lid on my Mac, I had an urge to write. What you’re reading is the result of that urge. It feels good. It feels good to be unfiltered. Unedited. Un… whatever.
See what I did there? I couldn’t complete my thought, but I wrote it and you read it. That’s creative freedom, no? Wow. This is going to be fun.
My new project
I’m publishing a blog post daily for the next 30 days just to see what happens. Just to make sure there’s some kind of consistency and accountability, here are a few rules:
- I will only publish on Medium, in a new publication I created just for this project: The Daily Blog. (visit the publication and press Follow to keep up).
- I will only write directly into the Medium writing tool.
- I will only edit posts minimally. Means spell check is OK, but using my editor, restructuring to improve readability or filtering my voice by changing anything that I’ve written is not.
- I will publish a post everyday for 30 days.
I’m not sure what I will write about. It will be whatever I feel like at the time. But knowing me it’s likely to be in the realm of the following:
- Personal development
- Career building
- Social impact
So, here it goes. 1 post. Daily. For 30 days.
Wish me luck.
