I’m a big believer is setting out goals and making those goals public. I’ve done my blogging goals for several years on this site and I’m going to do it again for 2013.
My biggest goal for 2013 is to write more.
This has been a big problem for me. I often wait for my photos to get edited before I write about a place, and it often takes months to edit my photos. By the time the photos are edited I have an enormous backlog of other things I have to deal with and little gets done.
Writing is a habit. The more you write, the more you write. Moreover, the more you write, the better you will write. Like anything else, writing is a craft that improves the more you do it.
One thing I’ll be doing is writing more here, just because it is another outlet for me. I feel less pressure posting here than I do on my main site.
I’m not going to try to post every day. I’ve tried doing that over a single month and it just isn’t possible.
I also think I’ve been censoring myself too much. I’m going to go off reservation a bit on what I blog about on the main site. It will still have a world focus, but maybe not travel per se.
One reply on “2013 Goal #1: Write More”
Is writing more content really worth it? Do people use the internet to passively read what others have written? My sense is the people come to the internet to do a specific action. To bay a bill, or play an online game, or look at pron. Others like the sense of community that comes from participating in forums or leaving comments. Also in the real world the publishing industry is dying how is publishing content on the internet different.
