Set a goal for myself to make an entry this week, and posted it earlier. Just a short post about my experience writing a Windows 8 program—just a stream of consciousness sort of thing, but I wanted to get something up.
I’ve added two goals to remember the milk for the coming week—get entries done by Wednesday and Sunday.
So my efforts to establish a habit of writing at least an entry a week just didn’t do the trick. I’m really at a loss for what to do here… I just don’t really see how I can move forward. Do I just soldier through it, come up with at least one topic a week and write about it? That hasn’t worked so far. Should I come up with a bucket load of topics and pull one out each week to work on? Maybe just a marathon run through a bunch of topics and keep them “on deck” in case I can’t come up with something in a particular week.
Got behind on this a bit. I did update the blog so that my Twitter posts appear on the blog, and blog posts get tweeted. I’ve got an idea for a series of posts… Hopefully going to post the first of them before the weekend.
It’s been about a week since my last entry, and this is getting a lot easier to do. I’ve got another entry started and I’ll finish and post it tonight.
I’ve got several other posts that I’ve started, but haven’t finished… a few of them are simply titles—I had expected to go back and write an entry later. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet. I really need to develop a strategy for writing entries—I think it’d be a big help.
I added the addthis plugin to Wordpress, and set up an account with them so I can track shares. Last week I set up a feedburner account—I’ll be able to track RSS subscriptions that way. Just a few little things out of the way.
Next big thing is to either customize the theme for the blog or just install a new one. Not sure what I’m going to do there.
After only one week. Definite improvement there. I find that coming here and making quick posts helps me organize my thoughts so that they make sense when written up in a post, and that’s helped quite a bit with getting this blog started. I really have to overcome the feeling that a blog post needs to be something significant—like 1500-2000 words (none of them have been so far!).
Finally made my second post. I started it over a week ago, my original goal was to post twice a week, and it’s been three weeks since my first post. That’s not all that great. I’m still in this, though, even if I might be the only person reading my posts. :p
:) I’m soooo proud of myself. Not going to provide a link, but it shouldn’t be too hard to find looking at my profile here. ;)
So at lunch today I got started on my first entry. I’ve got over 400 words so far. Hopefully will finish it and post it tonight.
I’ve got the blog set up. I’ve got topics I want to cover. I’ve even started a few entries, but… This just seems really difficult to follow through on. I was hoping to do an entry or two (at least!) a week, but I’ve yet to do a single one. What’s holding me back?
