Seth Godin blogs every day. He says everyone should do this:
Everyone should blog, even if it’s not under their own name, every single day. If you are in public, making predictions and noticing things, your life gets better, because you will find a discipline that can’t help but benefit you. (Source)
Fred Wilson, a venture capitalist and recognized expert on Bitcoin, blogs daily, too. He’s a thought leader. Here’s why he never misses a day:
Then, at age 42, I started blogging. And I’ve been writing daily ever since. Something like 5,600 blog posts have been entered into my Typepad CMS. Almost all of them by me. I’m getting close to Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours. My writing has improved immeasurably. But more importantly, I have learned to love writing. It’s creative. It’s a puzzle. How do I tell the story? How do I get my point across? How do I do it crisply and clearly? How do I end it on a strong note? (Source)
And in another post, he wrote:
Sometimes this process produces great insights for me and possibly others. Sometimes it produces garbage. But I’ve come to realize that the daily post, and its quality or lack thereof, is not really the thing. It is the ritual, the practice, the frequency, the habit, and the discipline that matters most to me. And, I would suspect, the same is true of the readers and commenters who frequent this blog.

Many of us have daily regimens or habits. Some of us meditate or run or read, etc. I highly recommend taking up blogging. You’ll find that, by sharing your truth with others on a daily basis, not only will you be contributing to them, you’ll start to know yourself at a level deeper than you’ve ever experienced. (Source)
In 2014 #NaNoBlogMo, an alternative to #NaNoWriMo that was organized by Jenny Blake and Alexis Grant, helped me finish a book. This year I’m going to finish another book, but I’m also going to blog every day.
