Blogging has been an interesting experience. There’s the times where I had no idea what to post, so I threw something up there and hoped someone liked it. There were the times where writing for the prompt was difficult, though manageable. Then, there were the rare occasions I knew what I wanted to write, so I wrote it and posted it.
I know my posts have been pretty haphazard. Random poems, stories that began but never continued. Thank you, my readers, for putting up with it all. Feel free to tell me what stories you want me to continue working on. I have all these ideas and sometimes, it’s good to have an outsider’s perspective about what ideas are good or terrible.
Blogging itself has more felt like another assignment for me than anything else, even if a rather enjoyable one at times. It was sort of a short paper due before class that I had far more liberty to work on than any essay. I guess, blogging has been similar to a free write journal like I had in elementary school, sometimes we would have prompts we needed to write about but most of the time, the teacher let you write whatever you wanted. I always had liked those journals and wished they had continued them in high school.
I may never continue my blogging for a while. Once this isn’t a regular assignment anymore, there won’t be the time and energy to continue with this. I’ll still come up with ideas and write them down. It’s one of the true joys of my life.
