What Running a Blog Has Taught Me About Change…

How was your weekend? Mine was normal, got the crossword ammo for Triple F and all that.

There have been times (and today might be one of them) where I wonder what I should post about. And then I remember…

A lot of stuff has changed in my life.

Like how I’m doing a lot more editing, and have built up a track record (good).

Or starting a weekly fiction prompt for you, which didn’t exist until months after I started this blog (good verging on pretty awesome).

Or how I’ve gone from posting five times per week on this blog to three or sometimes two (ouch).

Sometimes it makes me a little bummed to think about it. Or maybe even want to give up–I haven’t written a lot of fiction, and I’d be a total liar if I said there was never a time when I felt like giving up.

And I don’t feel like being a total liar today (or ever).

Along with all that upheaval, in some cases, there are things that are the same…

I write, no matter how many times per week, and that stays the same. Just parts of it change. And that’s helped me immensely with critical thinking and coming up with solutions for the authors I work with.

Then there’s you–reading this. Maybe we’ve met, or maybe we haven’t. Maybe you live 800 miles away from me–or maybe more like 8,000.

If I can share something with you that will improve your life, make you a better writer, or maybe inspire you, then fine. I’ve done what I’ve set out to do, and had a little fun (or maybe a lot).

Like reestablishing a good habit.

Reminds me of this post–one of the first posts ever done here. It all starts with the prospect/client/reader most of the time.

I haven’t even told you about one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen (and strangely enough it was not a horror movie).

That would be a change–it was sort of a documentary.

Or about the real Daniel Boone, or Robert LaSalle. Can you look them up? Sure. But my perspective will be unique, with me being, well, me and all that.

If you’re stuck for topics for an email, blog post, fiction story, or what-have-ya, keep your readers in mind (and I hope to do some live projects on this–i.e., me taking my own advice).

Or go through your old posts, if you’ve had a blog for a while (something I’ve only partially done thus far).

Until next time,
