Creating a Blog Is Not a Project, but a Lifestyle

People started running to feel better in the 1960s. If you ask English Wikipedia, it tells you that it was Arthur Lydiard who popularized it and turned it into a movement.

In Spain it is said that running is for Jordan B2B List cowards but before 1962 they simply took you for a crazy or geeky guy if you went out into the street and came back sweating simply because you wanted to move. It is then that a lifestyle was born. Running is not only a necessity to quickly get from A to B but something that if you have caught the bug you keep it until your legs allow it.

Along with blogging, running is another of my passions, although at the moment I’m not giving it the priority it deserves. At the moment I only go out twice a week (Saturday and Sunday) since during the week I don’t want to burn myself more by taking hours off sleep to go running. Yes, call it an excuse but getting up at 5 in the morning is not for me anymore.

Blogging as a lifestyle
Although for someone who says that this sport is part of his life, it is not enough, I go out every weekend throughout the year. There are no exceptions. My wife already knows and in fact she does too. We plan the day around each other’s workouts. I stay in shape because I feel good and I know that in a couple of weeks or months there will be a gap in my life to run my eleventh marathon. For the last 8 years it has become a lifestyle for me.

Blogging has become part of my daily routine. In 2012 it was a challenge to see if it is possible to make a daily post. It still is, but it has also become a necessity. It is something that makes you feel good because you receive so much more than what you invest. In the last 100 years, people have evolved taking on customs that we did not have before. The curriculum is losing more and more the importance it had at the time. I don’t want to know what you are supposed to know but I want to see or read it. Your blog is your business card.

Yes I say it seriously. I have not lost the pot or at least I think so. A project is something you start and finish. It has a beginning and an end. A blog is started but in theory it never ends. I hope I can continue posting daily when I’m 80 or 90 years old as long as I can get to that age. My father at 78 years old is still running. He is probably fitter than most of the people reading these lines. In my case I had to wait until I was 65 years old to run more than him.

In times where nobodies are the new somebodies , you cannot miss the opportunity to create your personal image and leave your mark online. There will come a time when having a blog is not optional. It will be essential to find a job just as it is today to speak English or if you are a student to have spent 1 year abroad. Technology and tools are at your fingertips. Do not miss this opportunity.

If you want to start a blog you don’t have to write every day. You have to go little by little to find that point where you really like it and you don’t want to leave it anymore. The important thing is to enjoy what you are doing. In my case I am lucky to have achieved it.
