Daily Blogging or Classical Blogging ? [46/365]

It has been a hard couple days to write. I’ve been quite busy and did not find a lot of time to do so. This is why those are very short posts.

Unlike other people with successful blogs, I don’t seem to have a lot to say.

A Process for Writing Every Day [2/365]

Yesterday’s post Having tried it before, I know that the challenge of writing every day for a year will be very hard to sustain. The most difficult part is getting down every day to work on it for a significant amont of time, meaning for me at least 30 minutes minutes every day. If you have read Atomic Habits, by James Clear, you’ll know that creating a habit that would last that long everyday is difficult, since the time spent makes it less desirable. Read more
