Today is a New Day

The primary thing writing and basketball share is the sense that each time you go out, each time you play or begin a piece, it’s a new day. You can score 40 points one game, but the next game those points don’t count. You can win a Nobel Literature Prize, but that doesn’t make the next sentence of the next book appear.

John Edgar Wideman

I read this quote and thought, “it’s time for a new day on my blog.”

Like many basketball players and writers, I have been in a slump. I have, in fact, barely been getting off the bench in my short blogging career. Lately, my motivation has waned. While I seem to continue to attract followers, readership and “likes” are minimal.

It is time for me to answer the important questions about my blogging future. While I do intend to remain at my posts may be more focused – more about what I am learning about blogging and about myself. Some of the questions I want to be able to answer are:

  • Why do I want to blog?
  • What is the focus of my blog?
  • Who do I want to reach?
  • Are there other factors curbing my motivation?

As time goes on more questions will come up. I hope to find answers. Please follow along and help me grow.

If you were to offer one piece of advice that helped you grow your blog, what would it be?
