Since I’ve now already given up on August (and summer), I might as well jump into September with both feet, right? To do that, I’m going to attempt what I’ve previously thought impossible: Generating good content for 30 days in a row. Conveniently, that’s the same number of days as September!
I tripped over this concept a few days ago here. It’s an intriguing idea (ok, maybe a little gimmicky), especially for someone who likes to think that on-demand writing isn’t necessarily going to be the best kind of writing. Like this great braised short rib, intriguing and engaging writing takes some time to simmer before it’s ready.
Heck, though, if short bursts of exercise are actually better for your fitness, and “cleansing” is all the rage for dieters, I figure that “30 Days of Content” can basically accomplish both for me, but (hopefully) in a more metaphysical way. Of course, I’ve already been warned that most people quit after a week and go back to their regular habits of blogging whenever they feel like it, which is to say probably not enough for it to qualify as blogging. I still have a day job, too, and it’s coming along quite well, thanks for asking.
So, here I go — rather, here I went since this is Day No. 2, and already posted yesterday.
