Yeah, so, I'm not very good at blogging.
Which is weird, because blogging is writing, and I'm a writer. At least that's what it says on my business card. Actually, it says "author," but we quibble over terms.
So one of my goals in 2018 is to become a better blogger. And considering that I've barely blogged up to this point, the bar is set very low. The very fact that I'm writing one now sets me light years ahead of where I was.
This blog, the very first one of the year, doesn't contain anything of any real substance. It's not particularly funny or instructive or useful. But it is a solid declaration of intent, and if I find myself not blogging or blogging infrequently this year, I can look back at this as motivation to do what I said I was going to do.
So if you're reading this, August Stephen, I hope you've been consistently blogging all year. If you haven't, get off your ass and do it.
Happy New Year, everyone! May 2018 bring you health, happiness, and riches beyond the dreams of avarice.
