Last year, I took part in the 2017 Discussion Challenge. The aim was to build up the courage to write more than reviews, to start expressing my opinion beyond my thoughts on what I had read, even if only just a little bit. I’m not going to lie, it was hard. There is something about writing a discussion post, the putting myself out there that had me thinking twice more than once.
In the end, I wrote six posts that I classed as discussions (including one on what made a discussion a discussion, a question I still haven’t quite answered for myself). This made me a “discussion dabbler” but it was kind of where I thought I would end up. This year, I want to do more, in fact it’s one of my new year blogging resolutions. How much better I’m not sure but I’m aiming to at least double my discussion posts to 12 – one a month. Hopefully, I’ll succeed!
