30 days of clicking publish. A challenge for a lazy writer.

I talk a lot. Like a lot. So much that once I went on a field trip with some friends to explore some wool factories, and at some point, I was talking so much that I hear one of the ladies in the front saying “Will she ever shut up”? So yeah, I talk a lot.

And I have a lot to say. Tons of knowledge, quite a lot of opinions, the occasional judgment. I take mental notes and I sometimes take written notes. But they rarely get published.

Corey Miller posted in the Post Status Slack that today he is starting a 30-day challenge: clicking Publish every day.

One sentence convinced me in the launch blog post

Keep it simple. Keep it simple. Keep it simple. Don’t overthink or overcomplicate it.

I tend to overthink and overcomplicate things. So what if I just published short thoughts or even republish quotes from blog posts I read? I noticed that a lot of bloggers do that and sometimes picking the right quote is as powerful as publishing hundreds of words.

So here we go, 30 days of content. Any content. I can do it.
