So, I’m doing #BlogJune. I decided this on 31st May, in the evening, when I took a casual look at Twitter and found out about it. This means I haven’t had any time to write ahead, plan or queue, which I totally would have done otherwise. But maybe it’s better this way.
I like the idea of blogging but I find it very hard. I enjoy writing. But it’s the requirement to come up with fresh, original, interesting content on a regular basis that has always stumped me.
However, I’m one who likes to rise to a challenge. And signing up for this program in front of a bunch of Twitter people will keep me much more accountable than some private resolution to blog more. I’m hoping that being forced to post daily for a whole month may be enough to kick-start a habit. Not necessarily a daily habit, but something more regular than my current, sporadic practice.
My specific hopes for this are:
- To engage more with stuff in libraryland and develop new opinions.
- To learn more from my work through reflecting and writing about it.
- To refine my writing voice.
- To turn my non-blog into a real blog!
My posts are going to be mostly library related but I’ll throw some occasional off-topic, lightly personal stuff in for good measure, too.
In short, challenge accepted. Bring. it. on.
