Announcing a new WordPress.com initiative for bloggers, Scott Berkun writes:
The hardest part of blogging isn’t the tools – it’s what goes on between your ears. Many people start blogs with excitement, but lose courage when facing the blank post page, or chicken out before hitting publish.
Yet almost 8 years ago, the accomplished writer and motivator Stephen Pressfield wrote:
There’s a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t and the secret is this: it’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.
What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance.
What they both have in common is that they believe that in order to be successful at writing or blogging, one must work at it daily. TheWordPress.com Post Every Day challenge is a tool to help with just that. In fact, they are launching two campaigns:
- Post a Day 2011: Post something to your blog every single day through 2011
- Post a Week 2011: Post to your blog at least once a week through 2011
"Research and publications such as Kristina Schneider has advanced here, are vital. To study the affordances of blogs – content creation and social interaction – is in a sense to study social media in general."
– George Siemens
