Blogtober 2020

  2 minute read

I tried this last year but got no further than the 1st October! Let’s try again this year.

What’s Blogtober?

A challenge to publish a blog post every day thoughout October. I’ve done this before in 2018 fairly successfully. Blog posts can be tutorials, tips or something more chatty and opinionated - just normal blog content. No minimum or maximum word count. Realistically I’ll spend 1-2 hours on this a day so posts will be short and concise.

Why do you want to do this?

To challenge myself to improve my writing and as part of the endless battle with my confidence. I love writing but I get stuck in a mental rut, endlessly redrafting a post and never publishing it. Currently I haven’t posted anything since May. I’m not going to beat myself up about this since there’s been a lot going on in the world this year and I haven’t always felt like sitting at my computer and talking about code recently, but I enjoy writing and sharing content so hopefully this challenge will help rebuild writing as a habit.

I decided I wanted to attempt Blogtober again just a couple of days ago - I normally have lots of post ideas stored in a Trello board but since I haven’t been writing regularly I’m starting this cold - no idea what I’m writing about tomorrow yet!

Maybe see you tomorrow with a brand new post???
