When I started the challenge, I was at a very different place in my life. I was writing a ton, and thought that trend would continue. But life, as they say, finds a way.
About three months after I started the challenge, I accepted a job offer that was packed with some serious responsibility—and, as such, ultimately robbed me of my ability to find comfort in writing (as is evidenced by my paltry publishing habits in 2023).
It's been just shy of a year and a half since I started that job, and I think I'm finally in a place to start writing again—and what better way to do that than to give the 100 Days to Offload challenge another try. To recap, here are the rules:
- This needs to be done on a personal blog, not a corporate blog. If you don't have a personal blog, you can sign up for a free one at Write.as.
- There is no specific start date. Your 100 posts can start or end whenever you want them to.
- Publish 100 new posts in the space of a year.
- There are no limits to what you can post about – write about whatever interests you.
Seems reasonable enough, but past experience has shown me that it's far easier said than done. I may or may not make it again, but I'd rather try and fail than never try again.
