I made it to the halfway point of my 100 Day Project! 50 days in a row, I blogged EVERY SINGLE DAY. Even when I had the stomach flu or only had three hours of sleep and a busy day of work. I am quite proud, if I may say so! I honestly did not believe I would make it this far with this daily blogging challenge.
Daily blogging – how it has been
You might have read my check-in post on day 25. At that point, things were going really well. I was motivated and full of energy and ideas. I didn’t write this but at the time I even thought – maybe I will keep this going. Maybe I will blog every single day all the time now.
To be honest, I don’t quite feel like that right now. The last few weeks have been busy and I have been so so tired. I often don’t feel like I have energy or ideas for a blog post. However, it’s been great to see how in those instances discipline kicks in. I might not be feeling as motivated anymore, but I am committed.
What’s been hard
So yes, it has gotten harder! But I also know that this time right now – the middle of a project – often is the hardest. The newness has worn off and the finish line is still quite far away.
I have also struggled for ideas on some days. Or I had ideas but they would have needed more energy and research and time than I had on that day. Also, some of the things I had planned to write about I don’t do as much anymore because I spend most of my free time blogging. For example, I had intended to share a post on my journey of learning piano. But, right now, my piano is hardly getting played.
What’s been great
I had quite a number of really nice conversations about something I published on the blog. Receiving positive feedback for this thing I invest so much passion and time into is so rewarding.
Daily blogging has been quite beneficial to my mental health. My mind feels tidy somehow. As most of my posts are just me sharing my thoughts and what is going on in my life, this blog has become a place where I process a lot of things.
Also, I have found myself writing more in general. In the mornings I have felt an urge to journal, to write down my prayers and thoughts. Again, for me, this is just the best way to start the day. I feel much clearer about what I want and need and what I need to do.
Hopes for the next 50 days of daily blogging
First of all, my hope is that I will keep going! I really want to complete this project.
My aim is for people to find some value in what I am writing. I hope that people find this blog, come back to it and leave feeling encouraged, inspired and seen.
I am hoping that the next 50 days will be full of fresh motivation and new ideas and that my writing gets better with each week.
I need your help!
In order to keep things fresh and intersting I would love to hear you guys’ thoughts on the type of posts I write, topics I discuss and ideas you might have. I put together a very short survey. It shouldn’t take longer than three minutes to answer, is completely anonymous and would really help me out! You can answer it by simply clicking this link.
This is Day 50 (!!) of my 100 Day Project. You can learn more about my 100 day project by reading this post. If you want to do your own 100 day Project, I would recommend checking out the 100 Day Project website.
