I Made It — 30 Days of Blogging

A month ago, I said I’d post to this blog every day. And today, I am able to say that I've done just that. It wasn’t too difficult either, so long as I was smart-er about how I wrote for the site. Perhaps the most important point to remember is that I enjoyed the process and I enjoy what my presence online is becoming.

I'm going to keep going then.

That said, there are a few things I wish I had done differently. Batch writing and future publishing was tricky—not the process itself, rather showing any sort of consideration for what I posted and when. I would like to have researched a little deeper and managed to unfold a “story” throughout the week. That entails holding back some posts until there's more to say/link and taking the time to find a narrative or aesthetic to my posting queue; time that I didn’t consider giving myself until reflecting right now.

I also presumed I would have posted more photos or drawings throughout the month. I tend not to have much time to myself during the week (worky-work, amirite?), so there are fair few photos I’ve taken, let alone any worthy of posting. For whatever reason, I also shrink at the thought of using photos from other sources without seeking permission. (That’s the nice thing to do, right?) As for the drawings, I just flat-out failed to do any. Zero. Not-a-one.

I think that committing to posting some longer-form pieces with doodles or illustrative work each week will bend me towards my goal. Ya, that’s it. So better fire up my task manager before I forget and make myself look like an ass.


  • I wrote at least one tiny link per day for the last month
  • I enjoyed the process
  • I’m going to keep going because weblogs are fun
  • I will put more thought into the theme of all my shorter posts
  • I will commit to doing at least one personally-generated (whatever that means) post per week
  • I will commit to putting my Apple Pencil to work for said special personal post each week

If you read this far and support what I’m doing at all, I love you.

Hugs and kisses,

From the human behind this weblog.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
