Happy Blogoversary?

I just realized that I published my first post on this blog a year ago today. I can hardly believe it, and I really have mixed emotions.

On the one hand, I have enjoyed the opportunity to lay the foundation for a professional web presence and delve into the topics covered by the first round of CPD23. On the other, I still struggle with the questions I talked about in that first post, and I wish that I could come up with a more exciting niche or purpose for this blog.

Clearly, I’ve lost some steam (and probably any readers I ever had) over the last six months, and that frustrates me. I do have a few drafts in various forms – some ideas jotted down and others still swirling in my head – I just haven’t been motivated to write them. But I’m not ready to give up, either.

I honestly don’t know what that means for the future of this blog. I hope this little bit of reflection will renew my commitment to regular posting, and if I’m lucky, the second year will be even better than the first.

I would definitely welcome any advice or encouragement you’ve got to spare…

    I’ve lost steam too but just keep at it when you have the time. I have lots of half formed posts sitting, waiting to be written. It’s just hard when you have a million other things to do, blogging just takes a back seat.

    I agree with Annie – we all understand how blogging can fall by the wayside. My blog goes through the same streaks and phases, and like her I have a load of not-quite-finished posts just waiting for the next set of free time. So… we’ll read them when you write them, no worries! :)
