I’ve tried keeping a diary every year since I was about ten years old and every year I’ve failed miserably.
I start out full of enthusiasm on January 1st, but by the time I reach the middle of February the gaps are beginning to appear. By the end of March there’s the odd sporadic entry and by the time May comes around I’m tearing out pages and using them to write my shopping lists on.
So, will a blog prove any more fruitful? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Like all types of writing I suspect blogging is something one has to be dedicated to in order to improve. Thankfully, dedication is my middle name! It’s just that it never lasts very long.
