Changes to #100DaysToOffload
His rationale is that he wants more time to work on each post, in order to produce higher quality content. I agree with him that it's too time-consuming to produce a great blog post every day, but I'm going to continue with the 100-day format for the following reasons:
- I'm interested in building the daily habit of writing again, as I've successfully written 100 consecutive days in the past
- I see this more of a daily diary than “providing quality content”
- People like Seth Godin and Austin Kleon have shown that it's perfectly possible to write great shorter form blog posts and get something out every day
One change that I will be making is not to use the format “100 Days to Offload: Day X” as my title heading anymore, as the title is the only thing that gets federated to Mastodon, and I want people to know what the actual content of the post is about. I'll still use the #100DaysToOffload hashtag and will also add the day as a hasthag.
