Five years of blogging

Today is the day. I’ve published one blog post every day for the last five years. What a journey it has been.

Here’s the secret:

Write every day. Put it in the queue. Publish it. Repeat.

That’s it. There is no magic trick or secret formula to follow. Only commitment.

Mathematics tell us that most of the posts are going to be average. Mistakes still occur even though I do my best to correct them. But it’s free. 260,000 words of mine. Enough to fill ten books. (There is definitely a book in here to be written here in the future.)

What’s popular isn’t always important. My favorites sometimes don’t get read.

When I first started, I didn’t feel like a writer. I felt like an imposter. But committing to this practice every day, I now have proof I am a writer. Am I New York Times Bestseller? Nope. Not even close. I haven’t even published a book yet. But even though I have never published a book, I can’t say I don’t write. These are metrics we choose to measure.

Here’s to five more years of sharing.

Thank you for being on this journey with me.
