So, I’ve finally completed the challenge of #100DaysToOffload. It doesn’t mean much, but I do feel like I’m more grounded since I’ve started to blog. I guess blogging is a good habit to have. Here’re my 100 posts, beginning from 4 May 2022.

I think I’ve said it before, the primary goal of setting up this blog is to write. By doing that, I wish to improve my English writing. I managed to write a few posts each month. Let’s just say blogging regularly becomes part of my “routine”.

Because of the pandemic became serious in 2022, I didn’t go out much aside from going to work. Each day, coming back from work, I felt exhausted. I’ve way too many excuses not to doing anything, and I was being lazy for a long time. I also realized I was consuming a lot of media content without digesting any of it. I want to spark some creativity, hence building this blog from scratch.

Sometimes, doing anything is better than doing nothing.

Even writing a blog post that no one would read, is still better than just sit there doing nothing. We strive for self-improvements, no matter how insignificant it is. This is pretty much how I’d sum up why I started to blog.

It wasn’t easy to write this large amount of text. The hardest part for me was that I lack the ability to “articulate”. When I looked over what I’ve written, it’s obvious I wasn’t doing a good job. To be honest, even though I’ve completed the challenge, I genuinely don’t see any improvements in my writing. For sure, it became a bit easier to get words typed out. But I can only write simple sentences and have a hard time expressing complex ideas.

I think I’ll keep updating my older posts if I’ve any time to spend with. They maybe looks unpolished, but it feels more real. All in all, I enjoyed writing them.

Joining the challenge provides a little push to write more. But I’m not a fan of counting my days. For now, I don’t think I’m going to join the second round of the challenge just yet. But never say never. Maybe someday I’ll change my mind.

For my next step, I’ll try to write faster. The format will be a bit shorter, and hopefully a bit better. I will keep on blogging, until the apocalypse arrives.

This is #Day100 of #100DaysToOffload.
