That is, one month down of the postAday2011 challenge, 11 months to go.
WordPress asked us today to report how we are doing,what are your thoughts so far? Are you enjoying the challenge? What have you accomplished this month? What strategies and techniques are working best for you?
As for how I am doing, I have managed to post at least once, sometimes multiple times per day, with the exception of 3 days. I have gained some great blog buddies that have offered a lot of encouragement and tips. I have recently added additional pages and widgets to my blog and have learned how to schedule the publishing of posts, which has enabled me to write a few at a time and post them for different days.
I am enjoying it so far. Just getting to know my blog buddies and other’s, and learning from them has been so helpful. It has allowed me to gain some knowledge and confidence, and grow my blog, both in my writing/posts, as well as overall exposure – having others actually read it and comment. I do find some of the daily topics are not always things that I like or relate to my blog. It has challenged me to look beyond what the proposed topic is and think of something on my own and/or tweak their suggested post.
As far as accomplishments, I would say just still sticking with the challenge is an accomplishment for me, along with learning some of the technical aspects, such as the scheduling posts, posting video clips, etc. I also have written some poetry (check out my Poetry in Motion page).
Overall, this has been a great experience so far and I look forward to the next months.
