Keeping At It

Yesterday was very exciting to me.  I was scrambling around trying to decide on what to write about, and came up with color blindness.  Now to me this wasn’t a terribly interesting topic, but it was something I knew about first hand, so I could write a few words about.  I like to add some humor to most things I write about (when appropriate of course), so I put my spin on it.  I clicked “publish” and off it went.

About ten minutes later, I was informed that my post had made the “freshly pressed” list.  I was touched.  I really was.  It was the second time one of my posts had made the list, and it was thrilling (My other post was a little one about Soccer vs. American Football).  My stats skyrocketed throughout the day.  We are talking record-breaking proportions here.  I have had the distinct honor of chatting with people through the comments they have left, as well as learning  a lot from the experiences of others (as well as a nice person educating me on a racist term that I didn’t even know was racist…wow)

My point in all of this is that I urge everyone to keep at it and write every day.  You just never know when you are going hit that home run, and it might just be a post you were never expecting that from.  Happy writing everyone!!

    Hej Mike, Well I just started blogging as of last Friday and a whole new world has opened up to me. We have new terms evolving in our house – I’m definitely ‘blog happy’ and my poor husband is now known as the ‘blog widow’. Personally I loved your colour blindness piece and it well deserved getting on Freshly Pressed – I’m writing something on seeing the world thro other peoples eyes or from another persons shoes so I’ll definitely put in a link to your post. Looking forward to your daily posts in 2011. :o) Have a great day, Jacqui
