Reaching a Milestone – 500th Blog Post
Today I am posting my 500th blog post. That seems like a lot! In fact, I started blogging in December of 2009. Here’s my goal setting post for 2010, written on December 24, 2009. Much has changed in our lives in six years, yet it seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye.
Gratitude Tip: The next 2 to 5 years will go by in a flash. Do you know where you want to end up? Have you created a plan for where you are going? Where does your gratitude practice fit into all of this? Start with gratitude for all of the blessings you have today, and then design your life built on this foundation. Dream BIG! There is nothing stopping you from manifesting all of your dreams and desires.
When I first started blogging six years ago, I didn’t really have a plan for where I would go with the blog. I did go through several periods of time when I would blog regularly and there was never a month that went by without a post. I am certain that practicing writing on a regular basis is what made is easier for me to write my book, 30 Days of Gratitude, The Gratitude Program That Will Change Your Life, in just over 30 days.
Now that I am blogging daily, I often get the question, how do you come up with new material every day? First, I’ve had a little bit of practice with daily blogging, as I’ve chronicled my month long 30 Day Whole Body Detox journey for four years. Second, I was also used to creating new material for my Live Daily Gratitude emails. And third, I don’t worry too much about what others think about what I’m writing. Yes, I want to add value to your life and yes , I’d love to inspire you to be more grateful but in the end, the only person who’s opinion matters when it comes to my writing, is my own. So if you’re holding back on starting (or continuing) a blog, let go of what others may think and just start writing.
Day 22 of the 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge today! Who will I have the pleasure of thanking today?
