What I’ve learned from a year of blogging

  • It’s good to get thoughts out of your head and into the world. It’s like a mental cleansing. Then I can go through them later and pick up on themes.
  • The power of the daily habit. I’ve written over 50,000 words this year, I wouldn’t have been able to do that in a few sittings.
  • That things increase in value if you do them enough. This hasn’t been the case for my blog just yet, but I have seen how other likeminded projects can increase in value. I need to share more though.
  • The WordPress app is really annoying. Sometimes it defaults to a website WordPress sets up for you when you set up a website with them. I sometimes accidentally post there. Perhaps I need to move to medium after all.
  • Writing a lot of crap helps when you need to write well. I’ve noticed my translations have been a bit clearer, but still have a lot of work to do in creating more coherent pieces.
  • I am quite against the modern work style, I want people (myself included) to be more conscious of what they’re doing, and to do it for the right reasons.
  • I realised that I am definitely not working for the money alone.
  • We all have a gift that we owe it to the world to share.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
