Daily blogging is good

A little confirmation that daily writing is a good approach for a personal blog:

The hobbyists (and one prominent pro — Seth Godin) profess that it’s the opposite that has the most positive impact on your life and mental health: short-form writing, and just getting your ideas out there. They’re correct. (CJ Chivers)


Keep a notebook

Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up into your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter, and lead pencil markings endure longer than memory.

From “Getting Into Print,” by Jack London



The true opposite of depression is vitality – the ability to feel a full range of emotions, including happiness, joy, pride, but also including sadness and grief.
(Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon)
