I wasn’t sure I’d make it month, much less a year, but here we are at three years of blogging every day.
While my purpose for blogging remains the same, I’ve added a few more things to help force me to revisit the things that I read. Outside of the blog, we now host a monthly (free, virtual) book club to discuss some of the books that we all enjoy.
Additionally, I’m a few months into my new podcast where I chat about the books that I read with others. That’s gone particularly well, not just in terms of audience, but in what I’m getting out of it. Both of those additions are forcing me to frequently revisit books that I read in the past, helping to strengthen the lessons that I gain from them.
For those of you that haven’t followed this blog very long, here are some posts that give perspective on why I’m doing this.
