Yesterday I realized that I had not written a blog post. It was around 9:00 PM or so. I knew that I could have written a bullshit post and saved my streak, but I chose not to. Because streaks are overrated. Who cares about quantity if there is no quality?
I sure as hell don’t.
And to be honest with myself I have noticed that some of these days I really have not had anything of quality to really write. And yet I have posted anyways. But it shows in my stats. I can tell when I write something that is good, and I can tell when I write something that is total fluff.
You know, just something that is there.
But I will admit that I was a little disappointed in losing my streak. I was stoked that I had written every day for about 66 days. And so in a way that was good that I had a streak going. I think the main reason why I didn’t save my streak was because of how I was going to do it.
I was going to just type something to keep it going and upload it right away. At least my last posts had some sort of content that I had deliberated on and further I usually wrote them at the same time in the mornings. My blog streak was basically a testament to a successful routine of mine.
But this post would be nothing like that. So I opted out of writing it.
Hopefully this next streak I get on will go on further and that I can keep writing at a good time every day as well as have something of content to write on. And if I don’t, well then I will just let the streak die.
And then go for another one.
