Looking back on the year so far, I’ve done pretty well with my heretofore unstated challenge for writing a Post a Day. But lately I’ve been feeling that I’m reaching for material to write about. That it’s becoming a chore and not something I want to do. Something I like to do. I don’t think I’m improving my writing, but writing for posting’s sake.
I’m glad I’ve done it though. I have some posts I know I’ll go back to as time passes. Some moments that I’m glad I recorded, even with my mediocre writing.
So, maybe it’s time to stop the daily posts. I will still post… this has been a sort of journal of mine for over six years. There will be so many little bits of life I won’t want to forget, so many cute things that the girls will do that I won’t want to forget. So many things I’ll want to share. If I don’t write them down, I know I will forget. They’ll fade.
And then I won’t have lovely things to embarrass them with when they get older. I wonder how many times I can post pictures of their bums or them picking their nose or a video of them farting. Maybe just sharing their artwork, or simply posting a picture of them sleeping.
Everyone loves a baby sleeping, don’t they?
