I did some of my very best writing in Sydney Blair's classes.I think that's because while I certainly wasn't the most…

Eric is trying his best.

I made a blog and a newsletter in hopes that it will spur me to write more down. Sometimes it feels like time has flown by and I can tell that all of my thoughts have changed, but I’m not quite sure how.

This feels like it will be a nice record, and proof to my future self that I am — in fact — a different person now than I once was.

Here on the blog, I’ll share quick bursts about whatever I’m currently thinking about. It might be a tweet, an article, or thoughts that eclipse the 140 character mark. Unsurprisingly, I’ve had this thought before — let’s hope this lasts longer than the previous record of three posts.

In the newsletter, which I’ve decided to call “Trying My Best,”1 I’ll send periodic, longer-form updates with paragraph-length write-ups on different items I’m reading, watching, and listening to.2

You can follow the blog at here — at ericmcdaniel.co/blog — or on tumblr or Medium.3 There is also an RSS feed, if you’re into that sort of thing.

If you’d like to sign-up for the newsletter:


Until next time…

— Eric.

  1. hat-tip John Mulaney.
  2. I’ll also cross-post those here to the blog.
  3. tumblr will have everything, but Medium will just be the longer-form, more substantive stuff.
