Brothers & Sisters,

Almost 100 posts and thousands of words later my great summer experiment is coming to a close with this post. In June I challenged myself to write or at least post to this site every single day for 90 days. I went past that day by 9 days and have decided that my post today wrapping it all up will mark a new change in my posting frequency, more on that later.

I learned a heck of a lot during the past few months. It arguably made me a better writer, made me much more thoughtful of the words I am writing and allowed me to break through the barrier I had in my mind about my writing. More importantly though it helped me build some self discipline about doing something everyday and making sure that I get it done before I goto bed. There were some nights where I’d climb into bed and would be restless until I made a post. So many times I wanted to give up but kept on trucking through it. After it all I am glad I did it. I was able to challenge myself and learn a lot about myself.

Writing is quite the outlet to get your feelings and thoughts out there. At first I cared how many people were reading what I was writing but I found myself not really caring and just wanted to share what I was thinking. Writing provided some closure for me, opened quite a few doors that I never thought possible and for that I’m thankful.

Moving forward I’ll at the very least be posting here every Sunday. The reflection posts are something I thoroughly enjoy and will continue and more than likely refine a bit. As for during the week I’d like to post at least once or twice but won’t be bound by a schedule. If something has me stirring you can expect me to be writing about it.

Thanks for all the support throughout the past 99 posts and I hope I can continue to bring you the same content you now expect.

Yours,
Jeff
