WordPress has issued a challenge to all its bloggers to post more often. There are 2 choices: commit to posting daily or commit to posting weekly. Daily is just too much to contemplate so I’ve decided to accept the weekly challenge. That means I will be posting on this blog once a week (at a minimum) for all of 2011.
I figure it’s the same principle as signing up for a weekly fitness class rather than saying I’ll work out on my own. (Not that I do either.) The “doing it on your own” think never really works for me because that requires real self-discipline and there’s always something I’d rather be doing. Like eating chocolates and reading in front of the fire. Or watching The Bachelor. (I know, I know… sad, isn’t it?)
But if I commit in print, then I’ll feel the pressure to live up to it. Besides, I usually work better with a deadline.
It won’t be easy but I’m hoping it will be fun and maybe even inspiring. If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
So I am, here and now, publicly making the commitment. And who knows? I might even keep it!
