30 Day Writing Challenge 2017: Write A Blog Post a Week


I love writing…. unless I have got to do it on a schedule. I don’t know about you, but I have had trouble keeping up with my content creation needs for this website (and also for the website for my previous venture, a photography gig). The funny part is that even though I love writing, I somehow do not manage to publish on time to hit my target of at least one content rich post per week. And we all know how important good content is for growing and popularising a website. SO. I need to fix it, and that’s why, I’m doing this challenge!

30 Day writing Challenge 2017 – #APostAWeekwithEC

I’m going to overcome this and manage it with a fun little challenge! I’ve seen challenges all over Instagram, and they’re mostly directed at getting others inspired to follow through with their social media postings. Well, I’ll get to social media once I’ve gotten my website pat down (ha ha). Baby steps here.

For this challenge, I’m going to be:

  • Publishing at least one post every week starting this week, February 27, 2017
  • For a period of 30 days (that’s 4 weeks basically)

Sounds simple and easy enough, eh? The reason I’ve kept it easy and very doable is because:

  • I have taken part in other consistency challenges but have dropped out mainly because it required too much of a change all at the same time from my side. For example, I had jumped on the #AtoZChallenge bandwagon but dropped out after H or I. It was sad because I’d gotten a lot of people interested in the series, and then disappointed them by not following through with the challenge. By setting an easy to achieve goal this time, I want to follow it through and emerge with a healthy habit. If I end up publishing more than just a post each week, then even better!
  • It is easier to be consistent with making a small change/effort than to try to overhaul something or implement a new habit which takes a lot of time and energy.

With these pointers in mind, I hope I’m able to accomplish this target!
