Title: I’m Posting every day in 2011!

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.ย  I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Signed,

  1. I really like this idea of posting every day. I try to post in my blog every day, or if I skip a day, I do two the next day. However, if this is supposed to be a template post for other bloggers, you should fix a lot of the spelling and grammar mistakes.

    Some real obvious ones:

    – In the first paragraph, “i” should be capitalized.
    – In the second paragraph, the last sentence is a fragment. Use a comma to link it with the previous sentence.
    – In the third paragraph, “read” instead of “ready.” And I’d say “comments, likes, and good will.”

    There’s no better way to give motivation to bloggers than with good spelling and grammar! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to write one, but I’m already way too busy! Plus, I’m a musician. Grammar is just a hobby of mine. But I do agree that it would be a good idea!

    1. Hey Scott,
      Ok, you’ve sold me the PostAWeek 2011! challenge. Excellent motivation…thnx. Already see several people on Twitter have taken on both daily and weekly! It will be interesting to follow some of their blogs and tweets over the next year and broaden my horizons!

      Happy New Year folks!

    2. Would it be an idea to tag every post with the appropriate tag (once a day/week) from the point one joins so that at the end of the year you can filter the posts by tag and see if you have met your goal. Just an idea!!??

  5. Great gift. I have been writing my Blog since July 2009 and seem to have been ‘trapped’ (in the nicest possible way) into trying to write everyday – because that’s how it’s been and now I have created that expectation for my readers.

    So anything that helps me through those more difficult days is welcome!

    Well done WordPress!

  6. I did the NaBloPoMo and that was cool. I’m now doing a 30-day fitness challenge. It should make me hot. I’ll do this 365-days of posting in 2011. You better read!

  7. I’m starting a 365 photography project and so this will go perfectly hand in hand with things I already had planned for my blog in 2011. I’m so glad I stumbled across this, it’s such a great idea! Thanks ^_^

  8. I want to join in but I’m pretty sure I’ll fail. There’s just no way I’ll have the time to post something (interesting that is) every day. I think I might join in the post a week instead. I’ll write as often as I can, but the minimum of one a week instead of one a day seems more realistic to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll be browsing the two tags often, good luck all of you!!

    1. Have no fear – if you post more than you would have otherwise, it’s a success. This isn’t the Olympics – there can be more than one winner ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Sounds like a great idea. I have been trying to keep up at least a few days a week. Still trying to learn more about wordpress technology and be able to get my blog the way I want it. Wonder if I should create a new blog just for this Daily or Weekly post challenge!
