I’ve never really been one to start a new thing without a whole number to get me started. Like, who starts a 30-day challenge on January 16th? January or February 1st? Sure. But the 16th? The part of my brain that lightly displays OCD tendencies doesn’t like it.
What I do like, though, is the community and accountability that this challenge provides.
So, what am I even talking about? Well, the folks over at Post Status — namely Cory Miller — like to challenge the community to the occasional writing challenge. It’s 30 days (that’s doable, right?) and people are encouraged to post their writing in the #clickpublish channel on Slack. I’ve not done it before, but I’ve been wanting to get back to writing more often (please don’t look at the publish date of my last article before this one!).
What to write about? How will this work? I do have a job to do still, you know! Well, I’m keeping the pressure low. Might one of these posts be a single paragraph? Maybe 🤷♂️ That’s okay! I’ll be doing my best to share a bit about what I’ve taken away from the day (or possibly the day before) as it pertains to WordPress, WooCommerce, the web community, and what I do at GoDaddy, which includes planning, sponsoring, and attending industry events!
Want to join me? Please do! There’s no pledge to sign or penalties for failure; we both know I won’t do this perfectly. Simply start writing and do it — to the best of your ability — for 30 days. If you want to share, I’d love to see what you have to say, so join the Post Status Slack and share your writing there or on your Twitter handle. Make sure you tag me on Twitter too @marcusdburnette!
