I’m trying to write blog entries here more regularly - so I’m doing just that.
Recently I’ve been looking at some blogs I came across on Hackernews and I stumbled upon this post about building a consistent writing habit. This is something that I’ve been trying to myself over the last couple of weeks/months. While my posts here have been mostly focused on tech/software related topics, I want to cover a more varied area of topics that I’m interested in.
I’m taking some inspiration from another blog I came across - https://taylor.town/ - who seems to be not have any consistent theme or vibe when it comes to topics but nevertheless a lot of the posts are pretty interesting. And clearly the person running the blog has made it a habit to just write regularly and get their thoughts out. Overall I really like these kinds of personal blogs. I love looking at how people style their sites and what content they create. Considering how huge & dominant the bigger social media websites are these days, I think these smaller sites really feel like a breath of fresh air.
One reason why I’m maybe hesitant to post more regularly is that I sometimes feel that some blog post ideas aren’t really worth a post and that I don’t really have anything special to say. But that’s exactly the point.
It doesn’t have to be special. It doesn’t have to be the most amazing blog post ever created. If I have an interesting thought, I’m going to try to post it here. This is my personal space on the internet so I shouldn’t feel like my posts here need to have a certain level of quality to be worth publishing.
