Blogging as a social media

After a long time of inactivity, earlier last month ive made a self pledge to blog more often.

Two reasons for this. First one, i spend 18 dollars for this blog every year for the kikiahmadi.com domain. Might as well utilize it more often.The next one, Ive made a plan to pursue master’s degree overseas next year, hopefully through scholarship (amen) . One of the thing that stands between me and the scholarship is essays, a lot of essays. I still finds it difficult to write a blog post let alone create an impactful writings. Hence im forcing myself to regularly write.

Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up. - Jane Yolen

My previous problem with blogging was overthinking what and how should i write. At the end of the day, i write nothing. So to make it simpler, i treated blog as social media. Whenever i found something interesting and feel the urge to share, i posted in this blog rather than twitter or FB. Using blog, i can revisit the content easily by googling it and its connected to all of my social media account anyway.

So far this method works well. After that self pledge post, ive writed 29 posts which is about a post each day. Quite impressive considering the last time i wrote that often was  back in March 2008. I shared about interesting articles, Indonesian album and even movie trailers .

Going forward ill try to keep this pace with also adding longer analysis articles to exercise my wrting depth such as the one i did with Steam

Do you guys blog as well ? share your blog in the comment , ill definitely check it out.
