In the beginning, Life


Earlier this summer Seth Godin wrote his 5,000th blog post.

This is my 201st blog post. I started this blog on January 1, 2010. That means I’m averaging about a blog post a week. (As I write that I realize I hate — no greatly dislike and distrust — averages so I don’t know why I’m inclined to include this factoid. I suspect a blog post on averages is coming soon.) Anyways…

I’ve explored and processed a lot of life in 201. But 5,000. Can you imagine? Have you made, written, created 5,000 of anything?

As I began this blog, I wrote:

I don’t know why exactly I’m doing this except that I feel this heavy burden to create, move, and figure some things out about myself and what I’m supposed to be doing in the world.  So, here it goes.

I had no idea then that three years into the future I would be where I am now. My guess is that at #1, Seth Godin never anticipated 5,000 — and all the knowledge, experience, error, and life that would come with it.

So I’ll continue to ponder and write, with little expectation or understanding of what it means or where it’s taking me. I know that 201 has not provided many answers to the questions that started my blogging journey. But I continue to sense that same burden to create, move, and explore. Maybe with the added burden to feel life as it’s happening. So, here it [keeps] going.

Thanks for joining me!
