Self Improvement

Why should I blog?

I’ve always admired Seth Godin’s blog. His stories are succinct. He’s easy to read. I almost always find his posts entertaining or valuable. In a recent interview with Tim Ferris, he noted that everyone should write a blog daily.

I have always wanted to write a blog. In fact, over the past decade I have written a couple dozen blog posts for blogs that I started but never kept up. I believe these past failures were a result of having too rigid of a structure. I’m wiping the slate clean and starting over with a fresh white canvas.

I’m going to start writing about things that interest me. I also want to use blogging as a tool to improve my writing skills. For this reason, I have one rule for this blog; write and post daily.

I have many interests. I love sailing. I love traveling. I love food & wine. I love making things. I enjoy coding (PHP), especially since Laravel reinvigorated my enjoyment of the language. I also enjoy graphic design and creating illustrations.

Most importantly, it’s my hope that my disability brings a unique perspective and experience to the above. I’m a quadriplegic. Life with quadriplegia is a challenge, but also very humorous.

That’s it. That is all I wanted to write for today. Day one.
