A brief history: I was born in the 80s. I grew up in the 90s. I became an adult in the new millennium. This means that all sorts of technology has fascinated me. From calculators to smartphones, it’s all really fun to explore. So, when blogging became an exciting new way to express yourself pre-Twitter and pre-Facebook, I was curious. I had a Vox account, a Blogger account; I even had a Live Journal account. However, they all ended up failed attempts to make good use of the medium.
When I used these old personal blogs my posts were often, much like this one, a confession of the online grievance of’ neglecting my blog. The posts would then continue with saying that I should revisit my blog and develop a routine. Does this kind of talk remind you of anything? It reminds me of exercise.
I imagine that most people are like me. They have the great intention of exercising and they come up with a plan. No matter what the goal, we charge at the idea of exercising with such fervor making proclamations like “I’m going to exercise every day” or “I’m going to ride a bike to work and stop driving.” But then we slow down. We miss a day, a week, a month. Then suddenly we realise that we’ve neglected exercising. Does this sound familiar or am I just strange?
I’m not going to try to convince you to start exercising; I should actually convince myself of that. I think what helps people succeed at meeting their workout goals is setting a manageable regime and sticking to it. As time progresses and their body requires longer or more frequent workout times then the change is much easier to follow through with. That’s what I’m going to do with this blog. Starting now, I’ll post something new every Friday. It may not be about the same topic as the previous week but I promise that it will be about something. I may post between Fridays but every Friday will see a new post on this blog.
See you next Friday!
