Today marks two years of blogging every single day (minus a week when I had COVID). The past year has been super interesting, but my reasoning, cadence, and publishing have all been roughly the same.
As explained in a recent episode of “The Long and The Short Of It” podcast about “Practice versus Project“, this is very much a practice. Their episode explores the topic very well, but my main takeaway is that a project has a finish line, and a practice doesn’t. There is no finish line to this blog, putting it solidly in the “practice” area.
I think a common practice is exercise. You may have some goals along the way, but the primary goal is to stay fit and continue to exercise regularly. There’s no finish line, but there is achievement all along the way.
That’s where I am here. I’ve learned a lot over the past two years, but I’m more excited about what’s to come in the next 20.
I’ve explained more about this in some old posts, so I’ll link those below for you to check out, and from there I’ll keep it moving forward!
