Now that the New Year is underway, I just wanted to see how many of us are still doing Postaday.
I started postaday-ing in January of 2011. At that time the tag we used per WordPress was “Postaday2011”. I got so used to typing that tag every day that when last January rolled around it took me some time to get un-used to it! In fact, WordPress didn’t even officially sponsor Postaday last year until a number of us took it upon ourselves to continue the tradition. I like the challenge. I like the results. Even when it’s hard to write, it’s still fun. Even when what you write is tough to read, there’s no more honest reflection of the writer as a man. In 2012 I wrote about everything from my kids getting bigger to their grandfather dying suddenly. I wrote about our road trips and the blazing heat of the North Texas summer. I wrote about advancing my career and about the mundane details of everyday life. But I wrote and I wrote every day.
In 2013 I have just a few resolutions. I intend to be more prayerful, attending daily mass as a start. I also intend to be a better writer. There’s always a hope in the back of my mind that someone with the power to do something will read my musings and decide to publish them and make me fabulously wealthy. Then reality takes over and I realize that I am richer in blessings than I could ever have imagined. I love to write and writing every day helps keep me sharp. I intend to get more involved in follows and comments. For instance, my niece just started a blog! I’m going to mentor her (not that she asked) and share what I’ve learned.
So, any of you loyalists who are still involved with postaday-ing (tough to say, I know) give me a shout out, like this post, +1, share, follow me. I’m assuming the tag is still just “postaday”. Maybe this year, the good folks at WordPress will finally notice me and I’ll get Freshly Pressed! Or maybe they’ve already noticed and that’s why I’ve never been Freshly Pressed. Either way, I’ll keep writing. I hope you will, too!
