How to have a better 2022?
Just do it.
Like many things in life, probably the hardest thing to do is just to get started. Get started with a routine, get started writing.
And blogging is no different. In fact, it may even be harder. Many of you will agree. With pressures of trying to impress an audience (or, in many of our cases, grow one!) and keeping up with daily errands, day jobs, personal struggles, or pandemic life, it can be extremely difficult to just sit down and pen thoughts to paper screen.

That is to say, I’ve forgotten that my blog was a way for me to share my thoughts and not to please everyone with my thoughts.
So. I resolve in 2022 that I will just do it. I will just write. I will experience, feel, think, and write. I will make no revisions. I will save no drafts.
…Okay, I will still proofread…
Hope you enjoy it. If not, at least I did.
