I just got an email from the poobahs at WordPress. They are challenging bloggers who use this platform to commit to blogging every day in 2011.
I am sorely tempted…
Confession: I get totally STOKED around New Years. I am a hopeless resolution maker. I love to make resolutions and then buy tracking equipment: calendars, software, stickers, etc. to keep myself accountable.
When this email came, I was SO ready to jump all over this. After all, tomorrow I will complete the December challenge at 750 words and earn my Albatross badge. (!!!) Last year I did Holosync for 436 days without a break.
I am a complete streaker, love stacking up the days. But EVERY DAY here??? What it will mean is some decent posts, but a lot of just showing up for the sake of showing up. It might mean just a picture some days. It might mean a paragraph. It might mean less than stellar content.
What do you think?
Since you check here in and read this blog, should I just continue here as I have been doing, being fairly consistent, albeit with longer breaks here and there? Or do you think I should take the bait and try for 365 days of posts, regardless of content?
I’d really appreciate your input.
