I’ve decided to write at least one blog post every day. As I ramp up the frequency, you can expect the quality of the posts to decrease a bit.
In a rather selfish move, this blog is becoming a more personal space. A place for me to practice written and recorded communication.
My day job no longer requires as much writing as it has in the past, so this is old place is my new place to practice writing and recording words and images.
It’s not a resolution. I don’t do that. It’s just a commitment to work harder, inspired by these three things:
- A blog post by John Saddington (@saddington) about how he’d restart a blog if he were to begin today
- An episode of A Prairie Home Companion (I think it’s this one) in which violinist Joshua Bell jokes about how practicing for hours each day made him a better violinist
- The memory of jazz drummer Billy Higgins saying that, even though he was a living legend, he still practiced the rudiments of drumming on a regular basis
By the way, I’m taking the advice of many who say to just write. That means, I will edit less before I publish each post. At night, I might edit the posts that I publish in the morning.
