Day 1: Summer 2013 Begins
So begins my second summer as a blogger. I considered writing a different blog, focussing on more librarianish topics, but decided to write about my 62 days for summer (71 was better!) by reigniting my blogging fever of last summer. After spending most of the school year either too busy or exhausted to write much, I relished the idea of blogging again for a few reasons:
1. Good writing practice — ultimately leading to my not-so-top-secret goal of being a published author.
2. Accountability for my luxurious free time. I am so fortunate to have time, the most valuable resource we have, to pursue whatever I want. Beginning every day with a virtual blank sheet of paper inspires me to do something literally, “notable.”
3. The “tada” factor. Feedback from my family and friends gives me the same feeling I had as a kid after a well-executed cartwheel and the following Tada! as my mom, dad or anyone clapped for me.
I’ve got 62 days of blogging ahead of me beginning with tropical storm Andrea.
