Joining the top 100

I have always, always been a cheerleader for blogging in any form. I think the spirit of sharing things, writing things down, just having an outlet and tiny corner of the web for yourself is a brilliant and important thing. In the past, I’ve come up with challenges to help encourage people to read and comment on blogs, and taken part in other experiments to share thoughts and feelings about various topics. Ultimately, I talk too much and I want to encourage other people to do the same!

That’s why I was intrigued to discover 100 Days to Offload, a super simple challenge to write 100 blog posts and publish on your personal blog. That’s it, that’s the whole thing. It’s just there to encourage you.

Posts don’t need to be long-form, deep, meaningful, or even that well written. If there are spelling and grammar mistakes, or even if there’s no real point to the post, so what? What’s important is that you’re writing about the things you want to write about.

I’m comfortable I’ll reach this target, having hit almost 50 posts in the first three months of this year alone. But I love this idea for encouraging those who are a bit more tentative to have a go, and share with a community of others who are also having a bash at their keyboards. There’s a list of participants who have reached the target as well, so if you’re looking for new blogs from all over the world to follow, why not check out the Hall of Fame?
