I've been posting daily on here for six months.

I've written posts while travelling, camping, and with barely any internet.

I've played catch-up on missed stories and continue to do so. But it'll get done. It always does.

I've learned that I'm writing for myself from some point in my life: teenage me, writer block me, tomorrow me. To help, teach, and share what I've learned so I'll remember it in the future.

Every day is a new lesson. Every day is a fresh opportunity to grow. And every day is a chance to share with others.

As far as I know, I have very few readers, but I will keep doing it because it has been one of the best things I've done for myself in the last year.

It's righted my ship and set myself back on my course.

If you are ever feeling lost and have ever considered writing regularly and sharing it on a blog, I'd encourage you to do it.

Here's to the next six months.
