I have been watching some of the buzz online about Steve Hopkins 30 day March blog posting challenge. While I haven’t really committed to it anywhere and have missed a few days at the start of it it has got me thinking more about the kind of topics that I want to write about, things where I feel I either have something to add or something interesting to share. I don’t think I will be able to keep up to a post a day but want to try more own version for it.
Steve has talked a fair bit of late about creating a habit calendar and keeping up your chosen habit every day in order too see how long a chain of days you can create and cement the chosen pursuit as a permanent habit. In Steve’s case and for the purposes of the March challenge, one of the main habits being formed is that of blogging. In my case last month I made 2 blog posts, one here and one on the AffClicks Blog. This month, while not aiming to post every day I am aiming to post a lot more. Basically any time I have something that I think I can order my thoughts well around a blog post and also to get through a few more of the Affiliate Marketing topics I want to cover on the AffClicks blog.
So what I want to find out is not wether I can post every day, which I feel with startup demands in might be hard, but whether I can make slower but sustained improvements to my blogging habit.
Also I will be following along and referencing in posts what others are posting for the challenge. I was tossing up the idea of trying to make a small web app to track peoples progress before it got underway but didn’t have the time to get stuck into doing it.
(As an aside, the wordpress gods weren’t on my side tonight, spent way longer making things work than writing this post)
