Today I celebrate the 500th post on this site.
For me, the number represents a dedication to write for an audience and being willing to show up (almost) every day to do the work. I’d like to say I learned a lot about the craft of writing along the way, but really it’s been a deep learning about myself.
It’s a unique feeling knowing the things you care about, write about and share with the world resonate with others in ways you never thought. The insights others have emailed me in response to some of my posts have been a blessing to read.
It not only lets us both know we are not alone, but that we are building on each other’s experiences.
There is never an expectation for any post I commit to publishing. I don’t expect any to go viral (it’d be forgotten about anyway), nor are they attempts to pull people into a sales funnel. For those reasons, there’s freedom to write about whatever observation comes my way each day.
It’s been said before on this site, but it’s worth repeating again:
If this is the first post of mine you’ve read, you’ve been following for all 500, or somewhere in-between, thank you.
Your willingness to read these few words are an inspiration to continue every day.
Onward to 1000.
