Does blogging help anything?

While heading to the Russ Reid conference and as I was sitting on my first flight to California, I had a thought.

First of all, the family sitting in front of us on the plane is great.  They are making me flashback to the times when my 4 brothers and I could not sit still no matter where you took us.  I think that is still the cause, though, even if the twins are 16.  Mother, father, daughter, son, daughter, and son all sitting in front of us – it is amazing the process and teamwork between mom and dad to keep the kids calm.

SO… After reading a portion of the Wall Street Journal and gaining a personal best in Flappy Bird, I’ve realized that I need to start blogging again.  I have not blogged in a long while, and I attribute it to my being “busy” but that is a terrible excuse.  Everyone is busy.

How does blogging help?

1. It keeps me organized.

Not that I ever get UN-organized, but my experience blogging has made it apparent that I prioritize better when I am thinking about blog themes and monthly themes for this writing place.

2. It keeps me inspired.

Some people are doodlers.  Some people are musicians. Some people are gamers.  I need to write in order to let my mind run its course.  Almost like a bad temper, if you keep your creativity in, then you run the risk of it pouring out like a jumbled mess (which this post may look like).

3. It keeps me educated.

Blogging leads to engaging conversation.  Education comes through all avenues, but KNOWLEDGE comes through conversation and experience.

So yeah, it may be in the middle of the month.  It may not be January 1st.  But hey, not all resolutions have to start at the beginning of a year or the beginning of a month.

Here is to challenging myself to blog each and everyday.  That way it won’t be a jumbled and long post like this one.  If you have read this all the way to the end, then I hope you are in the same predicament I was by not blogging because this post may be more for myself personally than for any of you readers out there.
