Well, I finally posted my article to my blog.
I don’t know if I can really say that I have now successfully started a blog, but I’m going to mark this goal as completed, and move to something else – maybe something like post 43 entries on my blog in 2006 ;)
I have an idea for an article, which might jumpstart my weekly routine again. I think I’ll be a bit secretive, but I hope to be able to write it over the next week or so.
I also have an idea for a product that could draw traffic to my blog or website. Ah… let’s go!
I hit a wall of indecision, kinda. A lot of things I felt like writing about would go against my rule about not talking about work. Most of it is about my own personal development, but it still relates to work, sorta.
Which has halted my blog pretty much dead in its tracks, unless I write more about my daughter, which I think will get tired pretty quickly.
I feel the need to write something, though. Perhaps about running a rugby club. Sysop knows I’ll be getting some experience with that. ;)
In the last 6 weeks, I’ve made 14 posts, just checked. That’s actually two per week on average. Cool, and much better than expected.
So I’m on track with my plan of starting a blog – I’ve touched on various topics, religion, programming, leadership, approachability and personal stuff. Hopefully someone’s found it interesting.
I’ve wanted to write more on the blog, but I find myself doubting whether or not to write what I have in mind – I don’t want to keep ranting about religion, even if I have plenty to say about it these days.
I’m also trying to step around the ‘angry young man’-posts, it’s done and done to death. You don’t need me pointing out that people always slow down when they enter a no-overtakes zone – or how stupid colleagues or friends can be. I’ve posted in the past elsewhere about browser compatibility, but I’ve come to the conclusion that no one cares to listen when you’re always yelling.
Meta-posts, i.e. posts about the blog itself are right out. It’s silly, and a bit suspect, I think.
So that leaves the occasional post on religion, posting on leadership thoughts and my progress on Covey’s 7 habits, posting on personal stuff – my family and such, photo posts, and posts on my projects. I guess that’s what I’m doing already. Cool.
Well, I’ve started a blog, posted a few things, at the very least once a week, and it’s great fun.
I even got technorati working for me, adding tags to my entries and such.
So what else could I do? Oh, I know! Add my feed to 43people! I’ve just done that, finally. Silly of me.
Another day, another entry – I wonder if it’s ok to be spammy and post several entries in a day, or that just annoys subscribers. Hm.
At least I have plenty to write about at the moment. Maybe I should space it out a bit.
Downloaded and installed Serendipity blog, a piece of php software with a very nice feel.
I’ve posted an entry about one of my projects, so I’ve pretty much started a blog already, I guess, but that’s cheating, isn’t it?
So this goal stays until I can move on to ‘blog regularly’ or something like that, say, after I’ve written at least one blog entry every week for 8 weeks.
