WordPress (the platform that supports this blog and 266,000 + other bloggers) has announced a new challenge to their bloggers. Yes, they’ve actually double-dog-dared us to post every day in 2011. (That’s 365 posts in one year, for the mathematically challenged.) And the alternative challenge, for those who find that too daunting – post once a week (aka 52 posts in one year) for 2011.
So, what’s a huffygirl to do? I already blog more than once a week. I average about 13-15 per month, or about twice a week, although sometimes more, sometimes less. So once a week is no challenge for me. But every day – probably a little too much. I don’t want to write some slap-dash drivel, just to say that I posted something that day. After all, my tagline is: “Laugh. Cry. Think. Learn. Lighthearted musings about wellness and life,” just in case you never noticed that on the top left-hand corner of my blog :). I want what I write to meet those guidelines. I don’t want my readers wasting their time reading nonsense.
So I accept the WordPress double-dog-dare challenge with a counter challenge of my own. I will post a blog more than twice a week, but less than seven days a week, for 2011. And I promise to not post any poorly written drivel just so I can check off “blogging” on my to-do list each day. This is the first one for 2011. Let’s see how the rest of the year goes.
