The unexamined life is not worth living. – Socrates

Building on yesterday’s jeff noel blog post…..

Blogging every day, and posting on the Internet for the world to see, adds an element of risk few people can comprehend.

Why?

Because anyone, and I do mean anyone, can “see what you think” – can “see what you value”.

There is also a saying in life, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. Risk has it’s own rewards.

Are you determined to find out what they are? Carpe diem.

Want To Know The Benefits?

One of the benefits to blogging every day is going through the process of what to write and how to write it. Only people who “journal” or “write a diary” daily can fully appreciate this phenomenon.

And, if I do say so myself, the process of posting it on a public Internet blog for the world to see, adds an untapped benefit that “private writers” have yet to discover.

The daily act requires more effort than occasional blogging, in my opinion. Over time, your creativity and your topics could dry up. Plus, you really have to think long and hard about what you value. And if you ever expect people to “follow your path”, you have to know and study your audience.
