100 Days to Offload Attempt #2
Day 3 of #100DaysToOffload
I won't explain what #100DaysToOffload is here, you can check out the official explanation on the official website.
Last year, I attempted to do the challenge and failed. There are two reasons why I failed. The first was that I tried to do a weekly post with a format that became tedious and boring. I started off quite well, including highlights of my week, the tops songs of the week, and a weekly picture of my cat. However, some weeks were not exciting at all and I didn't have much to write about. It eventually devolved into just a post about my week's music listening. Boring to write, probably boring to read, even if I mostly just write for myself these days. I got tired of it and three quarters into the year I stopped doing it.
The second reason why I failed is because I left the second half of posts up to chance. There was very little planning involved and I realized I didn't have anything I wanted to write about. There were posts here and there that I would write and publish but they were few and far between.
The solution for this year?
- No more weekly posts, but I will attempt monthly posts. A lot more things happen over a month compared to a week (one would hope).
- Planning out posts. I have calculated that I would need to write a post about every three to four days to meet my target of 100 posts this year. I wrote them out in my agenda.
- Keeping a list of post ideas so that I won't be wondering what the heck I can write about.
I'm always super ambitious in January. I start off at 100% and then it goes down hill from there. Will it work? We'll see.
