The Halfway Mark

Posted by Dane Carder on July 1, 2019

This blog post marks the start of the second half of this “simple resolution” project. At the end of December of last year, I decided that it would serve my life well to write one blog post every day for 2019. I have no real proof of any benefits, but I’m a stubborn man, and my commitment to this will help me see it through to the end. Honestly, I had hoped that I would learn some things about writing during this challenge… not sure that’s happening. Life gets lived, and as much evaluating as I have been prone to do, I surprise myself by not getting hung up on outcomes. “What comes of this blog” is not near the forefront of my daily thinking. Usually, I sit down at night and quite quickly come up with a topic, and flesh it out on the fly. O.K… so, that’s one way to produce average work. It’s also one way to be authentic, and carefree. Some posts are better than others, of course. I’d be hard pressed to really know, as I don’t go back and read them.

July might see some chances taken here; I’m inclined to veer off the path. This is vague, I know… Intentions are tricky, sometimes they mean nothing, and sometimes, everything. If you have been reading this blog at all, I thank you. It feels self serving, too journal-like… it kinda makes me feel dirty. It would be easy to quit this, but I’m stubborn… would it be easy to shift the style or focus? Being at the halfway mark, it’s a damn good time to evaluate.

Happy July!
