Those 30 Posts in June, Annual Daily Blog Month

6,814 views

A few years ago I (quite randomly) found myself replying to an email forward asking an assorted list of introspective (and often silly) questions. You’ve seen those. They start to stir up around significant dates and are meant to be circulated for friends and family enjoyment. I replied to this particular one as a blog post — though little did I know then that it would be the start of my annual new year’s list. That list has come a long way — evolving and growing, shrinking and scattering — and has actually landed quite well after so many years (if I do say so myself!) It has resulted in a massive exercise in annual self-reflection compiled into a single, new years-ish post. And I kinda enjoy writing it.

I wanted to do something similar leading into the mid-year, but I didn’t have the same nostalgic-slash-turn-of-the-calendar-type thoughts about a whole retrospective-on-life-and-year… at least not in summer time. I guess, there just isn’t the same impact leading into July 1 as there is for January 1.

But six months is long enough to get antsy about this type of thing, so instead I thought I’d try something different: a “blog-every-day” month in June but with a twist. See, there are these thirty questions that neeeeeeeed answers, and those answers presumably will be snapshots of the moment in time where I inhabit. This is tricky, because while there are tons of questions that I could ask-and-answer, the number that are flexible enough to be indicative of a moment of time number far fewer.

So, what I came up with (back in May 2011) is something of a rolling, open-ended set of thinking points; For thirty posts in June — be those posts a few words, an essay, or something in between — I’m going to write blog posts on those points. Each day, one. Each year, the same question on the same day. (Hopefully I remember to do the same thing each June for the perpetual life of this blog.) And eventually? Well, we’ll see… so far, six months have been successfully filled with, uh… those 30 posts in June.
