Despite my best efforts, forcing myself to write every day, or even at all lately, has been very unsuccessful. I love writing, but sometimes I’m not sure what to write about or I get distracted by projects that I’m working on and just completely neglect it.
Starting today, I’m issuing a challenge to myself (and to anyone else who’d like to participate alongside me) to 100 posts in 100 days.
I’m not sure I’m going to make it.
I may not even make it past the first week.
But I’m going to give it my best shot. Somewhere between here, CSSForge and Lucid Theme, I’m planning on posting every day for the next 3+ months. Some will probably be mundane thoughts and ideas, but I’m going to try and force myself to write something of substance every day.
I’m issuing this challenge to myself for a couple of reasons.
First, writing keeps me sharp and helps me get sharper. Often when I start out writing a tutorial or post about something, I’m writing it more to teach myself the concepts than I am to teach someone else.
Second, I’d like to see just how much I can grow the traffic and community over at CSSForge. Despite my best efforts, my inability to maintain some writing discipline has often left it with stale content for months on end, which has obviously effected it’s ability to grow and build a community.
Well… here we go.
