So, yesterday, I wrote about my Steam Replay and… nicely,… that was my 730th publish in a row which marks my second 12 months of running a blog every day.
Be aware: The Header Picture is from November of 2020, so I figured it’d be becoming right here. That’s all. That’s all there may be to it. MagiShock.
I consider I began writing every day again in 2020. It wasn’t actually intentional, to be trustworthy. I simply had a bunch of posts scheduled as I used to be gone to go to my mother and father… that paired with the actual fact that there have been many alternative folks posting prompts, I felt the urge to additionally share my two cents on the prompts and sharing insights on my experiences with various things… and nicely,…
On December twenty eighth 2020, I additionally wrote a publish on Indie Video games to Wishlist in 2021 – however Stray clearly got here out this 12 months and never in 2021… Oh, delays… god rattling it. Nonetheless must play that despite the fact that I hyped it up since 2020.
On December twenty ninth 2020, I wrote a evaluate on We Develop into What We Behold – a free recreation that will later blow up in recognition resulting from some individual displaying it off on TikTok… which then in flip made folks google stuff like “good hat recreation” or different types of issues… which drove a love of visitors to my web site and after that I received nearer and nearer to 3k views however by no means actually received there in 2021… and in 2022, I lastly hit that mark a number of occasions and even 4k views a number of occasions.
I’d think about that folks trying out that evaluate a lot in April of 2021 was a serious contributing issue to my evaluations getting extra eyes on them these days.
On December twenty ninth, I additionally took half within the EXP Share Immediate #2 sparked by DaNamesX from Tales From The Backlog and GamingOmnivore – and I talked about a few of the first video games I performed.
On December thirtieth, I talked about League of Legends’ new gadgets and that I’m wanting ahead to it… however because it seems, these have been a mistake and so they’ve grow to be a steadiness nightmare.
After which on December thirty first, I talked about New 12 months’s resolutions and positivity and different objectives. Becoming.
On that observe, December 2020 had a number of attention-grabbing posts…
After that, I had posts scheduled for the following few days and earlier than I knew it, I hit the One-Week-Achievement, that means that I’ve been running a blog every day for every week now… unintentionally. Once more, I solely simply scheduled posts in that method as a result of I used to be at my mother and father’ place and ended up needing to schedule these posts I wrote upfront not directly, form or kind.
Anyhow, I figured I would as nicely stick with it and see how lengthy I can preserve doing this… and admittedly, it’s been a blast.
Running a blog every day got here with its challenges. I wanted to have scheduled posts… I wanted to have an web connection out there. At occasions, when our web was gone for a number of days, I’d write posts on my telephone or I’d find yourself going to the library for analysis on posts… it was a bit tough…
However I additionally needed to maintain the streak alive, even when it was tough at occasions. I seen how writing posts helped me deal with not getting every thing executed in a day… I realised that I’m not that afraid of shedding the streak however rather more afraid of not getting again into running a blog after I take a break.
I feel the massive difficulty for me was that running a blog wasn’t a part of my routine and I frankly don’t have a routine in any respect, truly. I’m a pupil who goes to school through the day on most days, then spends time learning, then ultimately takes care of himself, typically lastly consuming some meals after hours of forgetting to take action… after which I have to do chores and earlier than I do know it, it’s time to write down a weblog publish to proceed the streak.
That’s one thing I’d like to alter going ahead. I’d love to higher plan out my weeks by way of running a blog and to perhaps dedicate an hour or two within the mornings or evenings to writing a publish. I really feel like that may very well be plenty of enjoyable to have extra of a deliberate out and structured day-to-day any longer. I’ll write about that in my resolutions publish as nicely.
And within the upcoming 12 months, I’ll must see whether or not or not I can abide a selected schedule for posts with particular prompts and concepts that I may write about. In January of 2021, I did do one “Screenshot Saturday” – why not do extra of these? I began Humble Selection posts a number of months previous to that, in order that’s a collection of posts I’ve received going for a quite very long time now… who’s to say that I shouldn’t attempt different month-to-month posts.
As an example, I like how different bloggers (like Naithin) have these “A Month in Evaluate” posts. I realised whereas scripting this publish that it’s quite attention-grabbing to look again at a month prior and a 12 months earlier than that and stuff and to only have a look at what I did and what I didn’t do. It’s attention-grabbing to attempt myself at stuff and report on my success or failure of that. I’d like to see if I may preserve that type of behavior up and if that would result in additional self-improvement.
Moreover, I wish to evaluate older video games once more. I’ll nonetheless cowl new video games and stuff however limiting myself to “JustOnePercent” felt troublesome and irritating at occasions. I nonetheless wanna evaluate a few of my favorite Indies on the market and whereas no one forbid me from doing so, I simply didn’t assume I may write non-project evaluations whereas additionally engaged on evaluations on new video games… Hopefully, I can do this extra typically within the close to future.
Anyway, cheers to hopefully one other 12 months of every day running a blog! Thanks for studying so far and thanks for studying my weblog. I actually recognize it! I hope you’ve been having fun with my posts up till now… I’m wanting ahead to getting higher at running a blog within the subsequent 12 months as nicely.
