What is this blog? My thoughts 3 months in
Now that I've been writing every single day for 3 months, I sometimes find myself asking the question, "What's the purpose of each post?"
I never forget the purpose and my fundamental philosophy of substance over style. But sometimes I have to remind myself why I write every day.
My posts are completely random in the sense that I write whatever I feel like writing about on any given day. Of course all of my discussions have to do with living a more fulfilled life. They all deal with the topic of substance and going inward rather than outward. But beyond that, there's no rhyme or reason to them.
So then I feel a bit better because I'm reminded that I'm not writing a coherent book. I'm not telling a story. I'm simply sharing my thoughts about living a fulfilled life as they come to me, as I learn new things and have new experiences.
And I'm doing so with the goal of consistency and momentum. I know that in a few weeks, or months, I'll switch up to writing maybe twice a week, but longer posts. Who knows.
I also sometimes struggle with the tendency to want to make this blog prescriptive.
Ultimately, I want to add value to my readers. I have to. Otherwise people won't come here to read my posts. But I'm still searching for the right format that will allow me to be 100% real while adding value to your lives.
I'm not an expert in anything, and I don't claim to be, so I never want to come across as a guru or someone who gives advice.
Everything I learn and share with you is something that I practice and need to improve at. I simply share my philosophies, thoughts, and experiences in hopes that you can relate and perhaps think differently about life.
My ultimate goal is to have my readers start to look inward rather than outward to improve their lives. Or if you already look inward, then I'd love it if you helped me spread the message of Substance Over Style.
I fundamentally believe that the world will be a better place when more people take responsibility for their own levels of happiness or unhappiness, and realize that nothing on the outside will fix them.
That's the main message I'm trying to spread with each and every post.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to continuing this journey with you!
Live with substance!
