Back to blogging

A few quick ones out of the gate:

  • I’m back to daily blogging.
  • I’ll blog in english.
  • I’m committing to two experiments for the next two weeks: one is blogging daily, the other is decluttering.

Wow, so much to unpack here, uh? Well, let’s get started.

Blogging in 2021?

The actual question I got from my coach today was “are you familiar with journaling?” and yes, I’m familiar with it, but not active at it. So we discussed my experience with blogging, which in the past was quite hot for me.

When I look back at my life, and at my career, blogging has played a relevant role. It opened so many doors, and I see no reason to journal privately when I can throw things out there (actually out here).

I still have to figure out how to navigate those topics that I don’t want to fully disclose in public, but I’ll cross the bridge when I get there.

There was a time when I didn’t care what other people thought about my posts, and now I spend way too much time polishing the filters on my instagram pictures. So I’m back to basics, throwing things here, without unnecessary refinements.

English? Really?

Short answer: yep.

Long answer: I see no reason to blog in an other language.

Two experiments

For the next two weeks I’ll be blogging daily and I’ll actively declutter.

I have found myself being collecting stuff on many aspects of my life. Phone chargers, pens, camera lenses, air-soft replica guns, 3d-printed spare parts. All of this stuff is collecting dust and occupying physical and mental space; it needs to go.

I also realised that I collect useless non-material stuff too: youtube channels I subscribed but I don’t watch, instagram accounts I don’t care but I still follow, etc.

I’ll start from there cleaning up, and get going.

Stay tuned for the next couple of weeks if you want to know how it goes!
