30 days ago, a blogger had a dream. In this dream, he dared to be consistent. His blog, Streetztalk.net, was on the verge of destruction. There were no posts here, or you can say the posts were sporadic. He tried to reboot the site many times, but it usually fell by the waist side. He sees other bloggers he respects taking the 30 blogs in 30 days challenge, and said “why not me?” At first, he was a bit nervous. How could he write 30 days of content, when he can’t even post oon his site consistently? What about the day job? What about the other endeavors he pursues? As always, he said eff it, and made it happen. 30 days later, he stands tall and proud for completing his goal.
So we are here now. 30 days. This challenge was exactly what I needed to reinvigorate my creativity. I was in a rut. I couldn’t come up with anything to write here. After being forced to provide 30 days of content, the spark has been lit once again. Here’s the highlights to what this challenge has brought me:
A plethora of topics to cover
I would be in the gym, at work, sleeping, typing, or watching TV, and post ideas for Streetztalk would pop into my head. I wrote them all down. I do this a lot btw (hey another post idea!). Anyway, I have about 30 articles I can write, so this will help me going forward in providing content.
An updated pen name
When I realized that I wanted to write more places and publish more stuff. I knew that I had to change up my pen name a bit to sound more human. As you saw ealier in this challenge, I went with Vaughn Streetz. Still Streetz but the V is for victory *Lil Wayne voice*This will help me professionally going forward. Can’t have my governmental out there too crazy, so here we go!
An acceptance for what my site truly represents
Realistically, I’m not going to post here every single day. It used to bother me but it doesn’t anymore. This space is my creative area, and since I recognize that a lack of production here = a lack of creative thoughts in the real world, I’m more motivated to succeed. I will post at least weekly, and when I do it will be something good. This won’t be an aggregate site where we post what everyone else is. If it’s dope to me, I will share. I will also have creative original stories too. I’m excited!
I appreciate the support and love I got over these 30 days. It means a lot to me. I also want to thank those who have read my work since this site began. I won’t abandon you again (unless proper reason merits it = I hit the lotto or go to jail). I look forward to the future and to more dope writing on this site.
Let’s take this ride together, but don’t forget the gas $$
