One thousand posts

This is my 1,000th post on this blog. I'm not sure which day it will be posted on nor what other posts it will appear alongside. But I thought I should use the occasion to reflect a little on this strange reflective, expansive activity that blogging has become for me.
I do not find writing easy at all. I find writing to order and sticking to deadlines painful - though of course deeply necessary! Yet I find blogging easy, motivating and simply "my sort of thing". I am truly surprised that I have made it to 1000 posts on this blog and amazed that I seem to be blogging elsewhere as well - though for how much longer I'm not sure.
For me I think that the biggest change that blogging makes is somehow awakening the desire to write and showing me that I can write - at least to some extent. Blogging has also though made me more anglophone in my focus and I regret that. I must make more effort with the two French blogs I'm also involved in.
In the next week I shall be trying to help a friend set up a wordpress blog to house all of her original music and hymn translations. So far however my greatest success has been to get Dr B to start blogging. Now I can enjoy reading his blog output too.
Anyway enough of this self-indulgent reflection, thanks to all of you who read these jottings and leave the occasional comment.
