The missing posts

I am in the home stretch of blogging every day for a year. Yet, it hasn't been without its hiccups.

I struggled at the start to stay on schedule. There were many weeks that I blogged multiple posts a day and filled them in after they were due.

I didn't do that all the time, and I missed 18 days in total, mainly after December. (In April, I missed 5!)

But no one's talking about those posts. No one care or misses them.

I notice the missing posts, but no one's complaining. They're reading what's there and judging the work based on that.

No one cares about the mistakes that you worry about. They only care about the finished product. Is it a good read and doesn't move them? Everything else is worry and fear.

Ultimately, they struggle to find the truth amongst the lies. A similar type of story occurs within each of us. We tell ourselves multiple
