365 Days of Blogging

Mark Twain said: “Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.”  

This is why I don’t make new year’s resolutions. Who wants to pave hell? Excuses…excuses. Today though, I reached an agreement with myself – I will take blogging more lightly. In order to do that I realized that the best way would be to post on this blog daily, and once a week on my other blog. Daily blogging as a means of easing up seems paradoxical, but right now it appears to be the perfect solution. And it will be easier on you too, dear readers, because instead of overwhelming you with lengthy posts once or twice a week, I’ll  write shorter posts. I hope to be able to write short but succinct posts all 365 days in 2015. Take note, though, this is not a New Year’s resolution – it’s something I’m hoping for!

Thank you so much for following me through the meandering paths this past year. If it had not been for you, dear readers, I would have stopped blogging a long time ago.

 Happy New Year!

I wish you all an abundance of all the good things in life. I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things,learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. Sothat’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

-Neil Gaiman
