Moments ago, while eating a power breakfast of eggs and broccoli, I found an interesting post on LinkedIn. It was written by a woman named Natasha W. Veale, Ph.D. who wrote a journal that captured the dissertation process first hand. Fascinated by Natasha's success, I followed the story to her website.
After reviewing a few of her latest articles, I felt inspired. I thought to myself, writing a journal that outlines my progress should be easy enough. The more I thought about it, the more I realized how underutilized my blog has been lately. I mean, I have a place to write, but I'm not actively doing that. Why?
I guess the main reason that I stopped writing like the site was a journal was because I thought nobody would be interested in reading about my day-to-day adventures. As I understand it, blogs are supposed to be about things other than ourselves. However, as some have expressed in the past, the name of the site is Damond Nollan. So, I guess the topic is about me, right?
In any case, Natasha inspired me to rethink my strategy for damondnollan.com. With the help of labels, which is just another name for tags, I should be able to write (aka journal) like I did long before. I can go in-depth with my workouts, dieting efforts, dissertation process, and leadership travels. Oh, the opportunities are endless.
I'm not sure how well these types of articles will be received, but I can tell you that it's probably good for the soul. Everyone needs an outlet to express their achievements, challenges, and questions. For me, I choose to explore those areas with an audience. It started with The Labyrinth and I guess it's gonna happen again here.
Let's try it again and see how it goes.
Until next time...
