Persistence is the key. I have persistently had athenaverse.com up on the Internet in some form (with more than a little help from my friends) for over 11 years now, yet how often have I given the world new material?
I want to let you in on a little secret- I have always wanted to have my own media outlet, and it turns out I have had one for 11 years. The thing is that if you only update once every other month and generate little if any interesting content, then the only people who will ever read this are the interweb tumbleweeds, the spiders, and the occasional person looking for "Gargoyles" fan fiction (and let me tell you, you're in the wrong place).
If you go back, there's several posts similar to this one in the archives, and sometimes I actually did post for a few days in a row. This time it will be different.
I have been persistent lately in doing a daily writing exercise, and have done it for 23 of the last 38 days, which may not sound like much, but I've gone months in between doing them sometimes since I started the practice in 2008. As a result, I have been doing a lot more writing. I have even gone to Tae Kwon Do for 2 days in a row (4 classes total).
Maybe I won't write a huge amazing blog post today, tomorrow, or the next day, but if I get in the habit of writing one every day, they're sure to follow. Who knows- maybe someday, someone besides the spiders and the spambots will read these entries...
