30 Days

Published by at 9:20 pm under Personal

I’ve been slacking off a bit with posting here. Not that anything bad happens when I do that, unless you count guilt as a bad thing. This is an attempt to change that. There really isn’t a big subject for this blog. It’s basically just a grab bag of whatever I want. There is a purpose to it though. The whole goal was to practice writing. It’s something that I want and need to keep (or more likely, try to get) proficient at. Writing isn’t different than anything else: drawing, photography, sports. The more you do it, the better you should get at it. That’s the theory, anyway. Trying to exercise my brain to be in the writing mode.

So basically, this is like going to the gym, except I can do it from my couch and my laptop. Well, I’ve been slacking with my “exercise”. Gotta break the habit.

Matt Cutts gave a short talk at the Ignite session at Google IO this year discussing 30 day challenges. This isn’t a new concept. Try and build habits by spending 30 days doing it to build that habit.

So that’s what I’m going to try and do. This is day 1. Get ready for (hopefully) 29 more days of whatever I can muster up onto my word press textarea and have the courage to press publish on. It won’t be Pulitzer Prize winning material. I can promise you that. But hopefully, I will successfully complete my challenge.

    haha yeah i tried i 27 day challenge myself and have been failing pretty hard. i want the quality of my content to be stellar so i find it hard to post the mundane. but you gotta go do what you gotta do. so post away sir!

    i’ll even throw a subject at you that i’m curious about: how do you find having a family compared to what you thought it would be like beforehand?
