I’m sitting in my local bakery thinking about three things – routines, writing, and identity and wouldn’t you know it, that’s exactly what this post is about.
Stick with me.
To become a better writer, one must write regularly. To write regularly, one must schedule it out as well as figure out WHEN you’re going to write and WHAT you’re going to write. To figure out WHEN you’re going to write, you need to incorporate it into your routines / make it part of your daily habits. To figure out WHAT you’re going to write, you need to know WHERE your posts are going and WHO your audience is.
And then my brain starts melting off a bit.
The other day I was listening to a podcast – I totally forget which one and such, so that’s helpful – and one of the guests mentioned that she uses her blog to keep track of her own ramblings / technical experiences / et cetera and if that helps someone, that’s great, but if not, no worries.
Over here in groningenrain.nl land I’m still figuring this shit out so there’s going to be a lot of messes and such.
Probably always will be because I do love me some experimentation and making messes.
And, yes, I realize that this introduction has turned into its own blog post, so I’m going to go ahead and plan to write about routines, writing, and identity on the next post.
My point is that I’ve figured out a few things.
