Matt Cutts in his TED talk encouraged his audience to “try something new for 30 days.” I have decided to make this a goal for myself. For my first 30 day challenge, I will blog. I read part of a book about blogging and I created this site in March. Clearly, I have a problem with follow through. A 30 day challenge may just be what I need to get going. Then again, I tried a 30 day squat challenge, prior to watching the TED talk, and I got a little sidetracked by a 30 Day Shred workout video. Well, there’s certainly nothing wrong with trying. Maybe a goal unrelated to exercise is what I need.
What do I write about for 30 days though? In future months, I can blog about my next 30 day attempts. In the meantime, I really don’t think that it’s wise to try 2 new things for 30 days, given my track record. The blogging book that I read, Bloggers Boot Camp, warns against unfocused blogging. It also distinguishes between journals and blogs.
As I’m writing, I’ve decided that my focus for blogging will be blogging, at least for the next 30 days. I will review books on blogging, as well as other blogs, and I will describe the technical snafus that I encounter along my odyssey into the blogging world.
Please feel free to make suggestions on my blogging and on future 30 day explorations.
