As a recap on My Year of Bach project:
At the beginning of 2016, I began a personal experiment. I decided to challenge myself by writing a short daily blog post on my favorite composer, J.S. Bach.
My original goals were these:
Post daily (I never missed a day!)
Learn as I go
Share what I learn
Some of the other benefits I’ve enjoyed as a result of regular blogging are:
Learning to write more quickly
Becoming more adept at conducting research online
Making interesting new friends all over the world
Having thoughtful conversations with other Bach-lovers via social media
I was even contacted by American Public Media and invited to do a couple of interviews as to why Bach is my favorite composer. The result is two features being streamed nationwide on APM’s YourClassical.org.
Anyone can be a blogger. My best advice is to start with a topic that you’re passionate about. Set a few goals. Make blogging a part of your routine. It doesn’t have to be daily. A weekly or monthly schedule is totally acceptable.
There are many, many more benefits to blogging. The #1 benefit: having fun!
Thank you to all who have read, listened, followed, shared and commented all year. Your unwavering support has been humbling and inspiring, to say the least!
