There are quite a few of us here on Active Rain... myself included... who have taken the "30 in 30" Blogging Challenge, and have committed to writing one post each day... for thirty consecutive days.
In Karen's post, she invited us to go with with her on her blogging journey. From August until September 30th... she challenged the rest of us Active Rainers to write one blog post each day... for thirty consecutive days.
It was part of Karen's "Unstoppable" personal challenge... to change and re-model her own blogging behaviour. She was after consistency in blogging, and was obviously out to improve her blogging skills, as well.
Many, many Active Rainers accepted her challenge, and quite a few, as of today's date, September 17, 2010, have completed the 30 in 30 Challenge.
This post I am writing today, for me, is Post Number 21 of my own 30 Posts in 30 Days. Twenty-one down, nine to go.
There have been months for me when I have written more than thirty posts... but I have never been able to be consistent enough to write at least one post every day.
Gee... what's the big deal about writing one post every day ?
Consistency. Have you ever watched The Today Show on NBC ?
Well... they don't call it "The Almost Every Day" show, or the "Every Day If We Feel Up To It" show. If viewers could not count on finding the show THERE every day... sooner or later, they would quit watching.
Now... I could write a post about what I have learned over the past 21 days... but I'd really like to throw this subect "out there" in Active Rainer Land.
So... here goes !
If you have been participating in Karen Bernetti's 30 in 30 Challenge... what have YOU learned along the way ?
What things have you found that have surprised you during your consecutive days of blogging ?
Has it been harder than you thought ? Why... and how so ? Has it been easier than you imagined ? How so, and why do you think that is ?
What has been the hardest thing for you to do... about taking on this 30 in 30 challenge ?
Please... tell us your 30 in 30 story.
