I love to talk. In fact, I never shut up! I’ve often wished I could somehow easily morph my thoughts and discussions into written form. Wishing and following through are two different things, and as you can see by the gaps between posts here that being consistent with my writing has not been a strong suit.
Brad Williams, my partner in crime and co-host of DradCast made a commitment to write 100 posts in 2015 on his blog, Strange Work. Brad is a go-getter, and no, I won’t be committing to 100 posts. However, Brad’s motivation inspired me to do better at writing more consistently.
What you’re seeing here is the first post in what has been coined the Weekly Post Challenge. Last week I was thinking about writing more reading and sharing Brad’s last post, and I decided to post on Facebook that I was thinking about writing more, and asked my network if they’d be interested in joining me. The reception to my post was super cool, and we now have a group on Facebook for the challenge, and we have over 20 people committed to writing a blog post a week for the rest of the year. How cool is that?
The Weekly Post Challenge is merely a way to keep myself motivated to write more. Anyone is welcome to join, and I think the more people we get, the more we can help keep each other motivated.
So there you have it, my first post of the challenge. I look forward to writing more this year, and I certainly look forward to reading your posts!
