Well, I done did this blog thing for (a little over) one week and I’ve learned a fair bit. Some of it was a refresher course and some of it was completely new information.
It is, however, undeniably rewarding to be writing again. Specifically, writing for me.
Though I’ve done (more than?) my fair share of writing copy in the last few years, it’s mostly been for client work. That’s all well and good, and has its rewards, but any related satisfaction pales in comparison to makin’ with the words for my own enjoyment. Perhaps the real benefit of getting all blogified won’t be a vast readership or any fame within the mighty blogosphere.
Heck, I doubt my numbers will get much higher than the handful of unique readers shown in the site statistics. And, really, I doubt I could keep up the activity-level of the past week. The next big design project is bound to hit and that’ll eat up my time pretty quickly. But, y’know, man’s gotta eat, too.
No, the real benefit will be to re-establish some writing discipline and — hopefully — give me the kick in the butt I need to get back to some long-planned writing projects.
Until then, here’s a little silly music.
PS: WordPress, I still love you like I did when we first met.
