The Real Anniversary

On Imported Blog

So I know today is America's Independence Day, but because I love talking about myself I want to talk about another anniversary: this blog. The anniversary is quite not today, bur rather roughly a week ago (June 26th). But this is the first blog I've continuously blogged for a year, so it's a major achievement for me.

My past success (or lack thereof) with blogs is pretty laughable. In elementary school, I made a blog about my hometown with the help of my relatives. And, it was pretty much a directory of places to find. I was off and on for that, and I don't believe I continued posting after a few months. After all, though, my age wasn't even in the double digits yet.

A few years ago, later, I then dabbled into blogging again. I set out to create a sports blog with my long-distance cousin. We mainly talked about soccer, and it was my attempt to get into the sport. We created some solid content. For a week or two. It quickly became a failure as we both had other commitments and it was hard to motivate each other when we lived so far away.

A year or two passed, and I tried blogging again. Again a sports blog, but solely on basketball (a sport I was actually familiar with). I had high hopes for the blog. I wanted to offer potential trades, analyze draft picks, etc. I even created my first Twitter account, dedicated to be a supplement for the blog. Very quickly, it failed. Too much planning and not enough execution has been a consistent problem in my life, and it definitely occurred here.

Eventually, I started blogging personally. It pretty much consisted of my immature rants on life combined with me tracking my runs. I'm not sure if I created one or two (not at the same time) personal blogs. Whatever the number was, I failed. I quickly realized the uselessness of such a blog. Plus, I found a larger audience I could vent to: Twitter. I'm currently notorious for tweeting about the most pointless stuff and don't exactly have a great reputation on it.
