Joining Project 52

January 13, 2010

Via Adii of Woothemes, I’ve stumbled across Project 52, a “personal challenge geared toward getting fresh content on your website. The goal is to write at least 1 new article per week for 1 year.”

So far this year, I reckon I’ve managed one post per week. A challenge like this may help me keep my publication schedule more constant, rather than the fits and bursts of the last few years.

It’s certainly strange to think that I’ve been blogging here since 2008 (and previously blogged over at Blogger from 2005).

Project 52 isn’t just about posting once a week. Project creator Anton Peck writes:

What’s needed:

  • Write a clear vision of what p52 means to people who want to participate, how to join, and how to spread interest.
  • A sense of membership/community for those who are participating.
  • There should be a way of publicly browsing the participating domains that have been updated.
  • Total accountability. Letting yourself down is far less stressful than letting an audience down. If someone misses a week, it should be public.

Project 52The idea of building a community appeals to me, as does the accountability. Knowing that there are others watching to make sure that I keep up with the one post a week makes it more likely that I’ll keep to the schedule and won’t miss a week.

We’ll see how it goes.
