My motto for this year is the Nike tag line – Just Do It – which has worked pretty well with a few projects already. I finished a knitting project (the first of a targeted number of 12 projects this year) and a big photography project already – but I’ll save those for another post.
I’ve taken my friend Allison Golden’s advice to heart and I plan on posting to my blog at least twice every week this year for a target of 100 posts (I know, the math on that is really 104 posts…). But, the point is that I want to write more this year. In 2010, I spent a lot of time preparing to write and not enough time actually writing. I find that when I sit down to write, I become a master procrastinator. So, I figured I needed a better method or motivation to help me actually post to my blog regularly. I have 18 draft blogs in my queue – all from 2010, (granted, most of them are from our trip across the country and those end up being 2,500 word posts, but, you get the picture…), and I aim to follow 31 Days to Build a Better Blog which suggests actually making a chart of topics. Check – done that already.
I know it won’t be easy to stick to a bi-weekly schedule, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome, and wonderful. Therefore I am promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others where I can.
If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments, likes, blog ideas, topics you’d like to see covered, and good will along the way.
Here’s to an AWESOME 2011!
