How did I live without blogging?

Now that I’m blogging, I wonder how I lived without it!  It’s a whole new medium for self-expression, when I think about it.  Not like public speaking.  Not like writing letters to the editor.  Not like keeping a journal.  Not like writing an article for publication.  It’s like all of these and none of these — expressive but anonymous (for people like me, who wish to remain anonymous).

Some of the same challenges apply, however: self-discipline, focussing, editing, etc.  And there’s a danger that having passed the big hurdle, I’ll feel like I’ve ‘succeeded’, and lose my motivation to keep regularly expressing my ideas and feelings.  Better think this process through carefully — but not for too long! 🙂
