I've had this blog for a little over a year now (10.04.06). I've really only been using it since January 1, but this is my 546th post. While you may not really get anything out of it, I really enjoy it. Not only is the discipline of journaling good, I like that I can look back at goals I've had, things I've experienced, and pictures of my family. So I guess it's accomplishing its purpose. We'll give it another year and see how it goes. Here's the text of my first post:
So what is the Ghost Of Mediocrity? Well, it's the spirit that haunts us, tempting us to do just enough to get by or all that is required. I'd like to make sure that he doesn't get me, so I wanted to create a spot where I could write down thoughts and to-do lists in a searchable format.
So why should anybody read this? While there's certainly no gun to your head, (or at least I hope not) this is mainly just for my own personal utility. If you can derive any form of meaning from it and apply it to your context, then more power to you. I hope it will help you avoid the GOM as well. JM
