Can I keep those blog posts to less than 350 words?
That’s what this challenge is about. Writing. Lots of it, but in smaller bites.
It takes discipline. Discipline to write and post every day. Discipline to edit the content to it’s absolute core.
See, I have these two friends and we were talking about various blogging challenges and how hard it is to write a post every day. But then one of us had the idea that, if we were forced to keep each post between 325-350 words, it would seem less intimidating.
So, we’ve come up with our own “31 in 31” challenge. At the end of this month, I’ll have written about 10,000 words.
You can join in on the fun
If you just need a reason to write every day, or an excuse to. If you just need motivation to knock the dust off that old blog or to kick off a new blog.
You don’t even have to tell me that you’re joining in on the fun. Just do it.
“What if I miss a day?”
There are no blog police who are going to come and haul you away. There are no fines, no public shaming. It’s just an experiment to see if I can do this and you’re welcome to give it a try. No pressure.
A preview of what you’re going to see this month:
scribbled a bunch of ideas out on a napkin outlined my post titles for the month. Don’t tell anyone, but I have an idea for a book and thought this might be a good way to flesh out some of the content. (Maybe mentioning it in the blog is a poor way to keep a secret. OOPS.)
You’ll see a lot of posts about building a website. I’ll explain why in tomorrow’s post. You’ll hear about my adventures teaching ethics. Maybe a book review, or two. It will be a busy month.
Do you think I’m crazy? Let me hear it.
