I’m reaching the point in my blogging career (all three weeks of it, give or take the odd autumnal dabble) when my respect for those whose blogs have more than about thirty posts is growing fast. So I thought it might be a good moment to remind myself of some of my reasons for doing it:
(1) I want to write, and by writing, get better at it. It may take me a while to accrue Malcolm Gladwell‘s 10,000 hours to mastery (another 54 years, if I carry on as I am!) but I’m an awful lot more likely to get there – or even a tenth of the way there – if I keep writing than if I stop now.
