This is the first day of a new experiment in daily blogging, inspired by Seth Godin.
I’ve been reading Seth’s daily blog for about six years now. I don’t read every one of Seth’s emails, but I open them several times a week. I don’t love every one of Seth’s emails, either, but if the proof of the pudding is in the eating, I’m clearly getting enough value to keep coming back for more.
I have signed up for and opted out of so many emails over the years, and in the end the majority are trying—subtly or not so subtly—to sell me something. Even if they’re not selling me something directly, they’re still very often selling something. A lifestyle. A brand. A mentality.
I rarely visit Seth’s website. The email lands in my inbox and I either read it or I don’t. Every few months I clear out my emails, and delete or archive hundreds of emails, including Seth’s, en masse.
I’ve never really considered daily blogging before. Which is strange, as one of the cornerstones of my day now is writing. If I go through a day without writing, it’s likely to be a more stressful day. So the formula of
if write then less stress end if
is one I value highly (it’s a result of lots of self-experimentation and self-exploration, about which more further down the road in this experiment…)
