So far, I’ve been pretty good about writing on this blog. I’m on a 28 post streak—this one will make 29. Each time I post, each day that goes by, the harder it is to break the streak.
It’s hard knock out consistent pieces while having a day job. Sure, if I wrote for a living, I could do 1000 original words every day. 1000 good words. Maybe more, now that I think about it. But I don’t do that—I do a lot of other things around the office and the house and live my life in a crazy city in the developing world.
But I’m making it work. I’ve got some higher-level, original commentary type stuff in the works. I say that often, then usually just throw up a post that points to something pop-culture related. So it goes.
The reason momentum is on my mind is that I’m heading out on a two-week vacation soon. I’m not sure if I’ll take my computer. Traveling Ethiopia by bus is gonna be quite the adventure—I don’t know if I want to the weight and responsibility of a computer, along with my camera. But we’ll see. Regardless, if I set this blog down for a couple weeks, it’s of the utmost importance to me that I pick it back up.
So, stay tuned for the next couple days. Regardless of what happens after that, I promise I’ll be back…
