Last year I had an epiphany. And I almost forgot it.
And that is what led to this blog. I have always been interested in blogging and I learned about blogging and setting one up at one of my old jobs. I felt a desire that I need to capture my thoughts and write them down before I forget.
I have always been jealous of those that managed to keep a diary/journal. I wish I had kept a journal during my life. Sadly there are a lot of memories that I no longer remember and I am no spring chicken. My cousin Jeremy was a huge motivation factor. He has handwritten in his journal for years and years so why can't I use the computer and do the same thing?
So I decided to challenge myself. I decided to blog everyday for one year no matter what. I wanted to write about past experiences, I wanted to capture those old moments as well as new ones. I want to have something for my posterity to have so they know what kind of a person I was.
I officially started my blog November 1st, 2009 and finally finished the long hard race November 1st, 2010.
I don't regret it at all. It was hard work but I came away very satisfied.
So take the challenge! Try it out and do it for a year!
