So I spent my birthday today on the couch watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine on Netflix and updating my personal web site. This activity was spurred on when I renewed by stevewamsley.com domain name at GoDaddy and I realized that my site had kind of stagnated over the last couple years.
As I was updating the WordPress software and plugins and refreshing the theme, I was thinking about commitments. This little quote came up on the Rock ‘n’ Roll St. Louis Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Facebook page:
“Commitment is doing the thing you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you” – Darren Hardy
I had to Google to get the actual attribution. It can be sourced at his blog article: 10 Year Plan. I can’t vouch for Darren Hardy, but I appreciate the sentiment of that statement.
I commit to many things. Probably too many things. I commit to Wednesday night rehearsals, weekend chamber music, and training for two half marathons a year.
Is it possible for me to commit to my blog? Meh?
So here goes. I will commit to at least one blog post per week. Most of the time, I imagine I will be just musing on random things that come to mind. Or I might be reporting training progress. Whatever the case, I will make my best efforts to make it entertaining and worth your while. I will avoid political rants and other such depressing stuff.
Sound like a good deal? What do you think? Do you blog regularly? Want me to link to you? Let’s see how this goes…
