So far this year I’ve written approximately 180 blog posts. As best as I can figure it I’m about 2 off the pace of a post per day, a challenge I set myself at the start of the year. So far, so good.
But there’s a problem. There’s no single, unifying theme to my posts. Possibly there’s a general theme of commitment but it’s more inferred than explicit.
So it occurred to me last night that I could use the theme of gratitude for the last 6 months of the year. The posts would create a series called 184 Things I’m Grateful For. When I write about a person I’m not writing about a thing, so I’d need to change that to 184 People I’m Grateful For.
It seemed like a plausible idea but then I started listing the people I’d put on my list. I got to 17. That’s a long way short of 184.
Rather than make it such a daunting task I could break the last 6 months into two. The first 90 days could use the Grateful theme and the last 90 days could be something else.
I could even beak the last six months into monthly chunks. July could be the 31 Things I’m Grateful For. August could be 31 People Who Inspire Me. September…that’s ages away.
So that’s it. The rest of the year will have six different themes starting with gratitude.
