Easier to blog in a journal format

I’ve learnt a few lessons through writing publicly on here.

One lesson has been this: it’s easier to blog in a journal format.

I came to this conclusion by reading back on my writings and noticing how I feel about each piece. As I read back, I noticed I was more engaged and proud of the journal pieces I’ve written. Anything with too much emphasis on how-tos or quoting others didn’t match.

It has also been a lot easier to put words to paper through a journaling approach. This is a significant factor for me as writing to an unknown public is surprisingly difficult at times.

So going forward, I’m going to aim to keep things like a journal. I’ll still share methods I find helpful, but they’ll be woven within the context of my story. This should keep things a little more engaging, regular and uniquely me.
