To Blag or Not to Blag

That is the question.

I’ve been blagging (blogging) every day since the end of last October. I’ve blagged for six full months (November, December, January, February, March, April, May). Last week I noticed I was really stressing about doing a blag post. And it occurred to me that I don’t have to do this. I am choosing to subject myself to this kind of torture. So I am reassessing.

[Note, it’s not always torture.]

My blag is not very popular. I don’t have thousands of visitors a day. I don’t have hundreds a day. But I do have visitors, I have tens of people who visit my blag every day. [And you’re one of them. Thanks!] The fact that an average of 10 people visit every day is heartening and makes me want to stick it out just for them.

Also it has been a great challenge for me to make sure I post something (whatever it is) every day on my blag. Having that discipline (if you will) has challenged me to be more creative. I’ve made crazy videos, done some pictorials, and shared some thoughts that I normally wouldn’t have. I feel good about that.

So do I need to blag every single day in order to get the same results? Or can I do it just 5 days a week instead. Should I keep up the momentum? If I stop posting every single day will I stop posting anything?

I don’t know.
