Last Saturday, DH and I had a beautiful autumn motorcycle ride along the Shoreline Trail (Lake Michigan). One thing I love about riding is that I can completely clear my mind. I’m busy focusing on the road, the controls of the bike, watching out for potential danger, that I find myself relaxing and becoming one with the bike.
I found myself thinking about whether or not to continue to blog. I decided that I will continue it, but as a creative exercise. I am not going to worry about whether it is “food blog awesome” enough. I will probably write less about food and more about life. It was fun making some money when the stats were high, but I am at the point where I need this to be about me.
It’s actually kind of liberating, writing without regard to keywords or pinnableness (is that even a word?) or any other such nonsense.
So when the Ultimate Blog Challenge came across my inbox, I decided that this would be a great challenge for me to practice writing daily about whatever I want. To practice being free.
It’s taken me a couple of decades to get over the “shoulds.” I still suffer from it from time to time.
I want my writing to feel as free as when I’m riding my bike. I want you to feel like that too. Thank you for joining the ride.
