Blogging when I have something to say

I started blogging on a daily basis on the 24th of March, 2015, with the intention of writing 1000 consecutive daily blog posts. As of today, the first day of 2018, it has been over 1000 consecutive posts.

During this time, I’ve discovered both the joy which I find in writing, and the value which it provides in helping structure and express my thoughts.

I’ve also discovered that it’s a great way to share my ideas with readers including, among others, current and prospective entrepreneurs, existing and potential co-investors, limited partners, and members of the tech community.

I’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback on the blog, and will therefore continue to share my thoughts here. However, I will not stick to a daily blogging schedule.

The first reason is that I’ve reached my original goal of writing 1000 consecutive daily posts. However, despite reaching this goal, I would continue if I felt that the benefits of daily blogging relative to non-daily blogging outweighed the costs. I’ve discovered that, for me, they don’t.

Specifically, daily blogging forces me to say something even when I don’t have something to say. This, in turn, lowers the quality of the experience of my blog readers, and it doesn’t feel authentic to me.

That said, blogging on a daily basis was the right thing for me to do during the last more than 1000 days. It has helped me grow tremendously.

Similarly, blogging when I have something to say is the right thing for me to do moving forward.

Thank you to each of you who read this blog.
