Today is landmark, friends. Today marks 100 days that I’ve been posting daily here on JLB Nerdy! I haven’t missed a day and it’s honestly a feat that I wasn’t completely sure I’d accomplish. Some of the posts have admittedly not been the best content, but I followed through with my goal to complete something and I’ve atleast checked in daily.
At this point, daily posts don’t stress me out as much as they once did. I’ve found that topics generally show up in my life- I either write what’s on my mind or something that’s been on my radar. I’ve learned a bit about scheduling and planning ahead in my writing and also life and even though it’s nowhere near perfection, I’m growing in that area. One of my favorite things that Anna has taught me to remember is the statement of “I am in the process”. It’s practically my mantra, especially when looking at the blog.
In the spirit of 100 days of writing, I’ve decided to do “100 of something”, just like kindergartners do for 100 days of being in school. I was discussing the idea with Loss last night and came to the perfect topic: 100 things I love!
Here’s to 100 days of writing and so many more and 100 things (and more later, I’m sure) that I love!
