Since it's currently 2020-04-25 +for me, this means I'll try have post something new every day from today until +2020-08-03. That's a lot of blogging! + +Kev also made a blog post not too long ago [asking people why they +blog](, inspired by a [blog post by Jan-Lukas +Else](, which I think is a great topic to +kick off this challenge. + +I blog because it's a way for me to share my thoughts. I could be promoting +something I've made, showcasing something I've found, sharing my thoughts on a +particular subject or technology, or discussing a topic which interests me. My +blog acts as my own free-form writing platform, a creative outlet allowing me to +shout my thoughts into the void for anybody who wants to listen, to practice my +writing in a less formal setting, or simply to share something from which I +think someone could derive value or find interesting. + +There is a great feeling of satisfaction that comes with posting and sharing a +new blog post. It's that feeling of creating something and releasing it into the +world for others to enjoy that keeps me coming back to writing new posts. It +feels good to share and even better when someone lets me know that something +I've written inspired or helped them. + +That's why I blog. + +[#100DaysToOffload](
