While reading Ian O’Byrne’s Digitally Literate Newsletter, I learned about a blogging challenge called #100DaysToOffload by Kev Quirk - Blog. The challenge is to try to publish 100 posts to your blog within one year’s time (about one post every 3.5 days). The blog posts don’t need to be long-form, deeply meaningful, or even that well written. The important thing is to be writing about topics of interest. Posts can be tutorials or even links to other posts you find interesting.
Right now, I am trying to get in the habit of writing regularly. I want to get comfortable with the idea of working through professional and other creative challenges on my blog. My work as an educational technology administrator and as a teacher presents me with an array of interesting topics that I do not feel I have the time to reflect on as much as I would like. And the circumstances of the pandemic have enforced a professional and personal isolation that I would like to work through. This seems like an excellent opportunity to try work past those challenges and to have something to show for it on my blog. By October 4th, 2021, I hope to have one hundred more posts added to my blog.
At the end of each post, I plan to add the hashtag #100DaysToOffload as well as a sentence indicating how a reader might join the same challenge that I have accepted.
I’m publishing this as part of 100 Days To Offload. You can join in yourself by visiting https://100daystooffload.com.
