After several days, weeks, months, years (so sad about the years part), my 101 Days Project is complete! The inspiration for this project came from a post on a website—for the life of me I cannot remember which site it was—that described someone doing various creative activities/tasks/projects for 101 days. I thought it would be a great idea to do it on my blog. My mission with the 101 Days Project was to get out of the “Let Me Tell You About My Day,” “Whoa Is Me,” “I Hate My Job,” “Life Sucks,” and “This Is What I Did This Weekend” posts you so often find while reading blogs. No offense to anyone if these are the kinds of blog posts you fancy. I know I’ve done my fair share. But I wanted to push myself and get beyond this. I wanted to push myself to write about the things that touched my soul, intrigued me, excited me, moved or inspired me, and made me look at life a different way. I was also hoping that this project would encourage me to blog more consistently. Well, the consistency came in spurts. (The project should probably be called 101 Things in 1037 Days. Ha!)
Like me, this blog is a work-in-progress. I am glad however, to have DRAMATICALLY improved with the overall variety, versatility, and frequency of blog posts. In the seven years that I’ve been blogging, I knew I didn’t want my blog to be solely used to vent or share poetry. I wanted it to be more than that. The 101 Days Project, I believe, has made it more than that. The project may be over, but the intent and drive continues on. It is my mission to continue pushing myself creatively and improving upon the content of BuddahDesmond’s Place.
To commemorate this milestone, I’ll be breaking the posts down into categories and highlighting some of my favorites over the next several days. Be sure to check them out! Feel free to share them with others and comment.
As always, I thank you for your support. Stay tuned for more!
Peace, Love, and Many Blessings,
