Quantity vs. Quality

So far I have been keeping up with my goal of a blog post every day.  I have found out several things, I enjoy writing for fun, a post every day gives me no time to plan or edit, writing makes me perform better.

I never have had a writing class I really enjoyed.  This is mostly because I was subject to sever writers block leading to high amounts of stress when my paper was due the next day, without having squat done.  The other problem with writing classes is that you don’t necessarily get to write about subjects that interest you.  With this blog, I have had deadlines tight enough that I can’t slack, which I attribute as the main reason for a reduced amount of writer’s block and I am writing about what I feel like writing about.  The result is that I like writing posts and feel like writing more.

Since I am posting in high volume, I have little time to edit posts, or put a lot of thought into them.  With most of these posts, I am writing from my thought stream with out any prior planning or organization.  Admittedly this was expected when I decided to make a post ever day, and the goal was to develop a daily habit, rather then high quality content.  After the 1 Month Challenge is up, I will probably cut back my posts and focus more on Technology topics and making longer more thought out posts.

My favorite side effect is that doing something productive like writing, has the tendency to boost my performance in other areas.  I don’t have ant scientific proof of this, but I have observed that my performance in other areas of my life seems to improve when I make beneficial changes in unrelated areas.

As far as the blog is concerned, expect to see fewer posts after November 28th. I will probably focus on posting more technology related posts, and I may start to promote the blog more.
