Today on the Blog 365 feed, I saw two posts by people who wrote just a line or two and said in their post that they were blogging just to fulfill their Blog 365 requirement.
As for me, last night and early this morning, I wrote SIX posts to get me through next Saturday. I did this so I could feel like I “could” take a break. Blog 365 has been AWESOME for me. I’d say 90% of my readers are connected to it in some way. I am glad I did it. My writing has improved as a result (to say nothing of what I’ve learned about photography). And I think, overall, my blog posts have been quality stuff. But I’m tired of feeling “antsy” about having to post. I’ve been feeling this way for awhile. I know a lot of us are. (I could hear the nodding of heads at my post about an alternative to Blog 365.)
Therefore, I’m going to let the Blog 365 thing go. It’s just not worth it. To paraphrase a button for for a 30-day blog challenge… if I were to finish this, all I would have is “a lousy sense of accomplishment.”
I’d rather have a “good” sense of accomplishment because I wrote for most of the rest of the year — when I wanted to — than a “lousy” sense of accomplishment because I wrote every day.
