On the eve of 2011, I’ve decided to join a challenge set out by the fabulous folks at WordPress.com, the PostADay challenge, where participants commit to a year of posting daily on their blogs.
Gulp! Big challenge, right?
I’ve been thinking about doing this on my own, but wasn’t sure I was up for it. Then WordPress made it easier with The DailyPost, an experiment in blogging motivation. Each day they will post ideas, suggestions and inspiration, hoping it will help its bloggers. I’ve accepted the challenge and will be using The DailyPost and the community of WordPress bloggers with similar goals, to help me along the way.
If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments, “likes,” and general good will along the way. If you’re interested in participating in the PostADay challenge or PostAWeek challenge, this post explains how to get started.
Wish me luck and Happy 2011!
And by the way, if you’re considering your own blog, I HIGHLY recommend the wordpress platform. It’s amazingly easy, user-friendly, and they do fantastic things like this. It’s the best!

Good luck on the post a day challenge. I will be encouraging you along the way. It is good to make writing a daily habit. I’m signing up for the post a day challenge too. We can motivate each other.
Oh wow, how did I miss this? Well, that’s really a silly question considering I have been hiding in a cave and seeing very little light lately. 🙂
I believe I could do the weekly post easily enough, but daily? I highly admire your dedication Olivia, and, even more, am so glad you’re doing this. Your posts are always so inspiring and somehow I doubt you’ll need the prompts often, if at all.
Here’s wishing you much success and I look forward to your posts! Happy New Year!
This is just what I needed right now in this moment. I’m going to give it a go with you. Let’s journey together. 😉
Thanks, Gang! Lou and Haley, I love the idea of journeying together. Strength in numbers, right? And Deanna, there is a PostAWeek Challenge, too. I say go for it! No matter how it turns out by the end of the year, you’ll probably write more than if you didn’t give it a go.
Best wishes to you on this, Olivia. I agree with you, this is a wonderful way to write more – even if you don’t manage the whole once a day thing.
My best to you for 2011.
Hope you will succeed and do end up posting every day. It’s a great way to get more writing done, that’s for sure!
Plus, I’m looking forward to more online presence from you.
Have a wonderful 2011 🙂
Hi, Olivia. I, too, and doing the challenge. Thank you for creating the image and letting us use it.
