In 2015, I set myself a goal to blog weekly.

I wrote 35 posts – 30 from my 30-in-30 writing challenge in March-April period. Since then, I have barely written on my blog.

Many people whom I follow write amazing blog posts and I have always strived to do the same. However, the thought of writing a big piece scares me so much that I often put it off.


For 2016, I set the same goal – to write weekly.

However, I’m taking a different strategy. Inspired by Colin’s 2015 strategy, I’m going for small posts rather than big posts. And to make it even easier, I told myself that I need not publish every piece that I write.

This post is for the first week of 2016. 51 more weeks to go. Let’s see how I fare.

    Hey good luck man! I know the feeling, I have so many blog post ideas but often just lack the confidence/time to actually write them

    • Thanks, Henry! That sounds just like how I feel! Are you planning to write more this year too? 🙂

      • Yea that’s the plan! We’ll see how it goes though 🙂

    • Hey Moritz! Awesome! Do share your posts with me when you write 🙂

      • I will! 🙂 Check out my blog at lampkemeyer.com for the stuff I wrote already! 🙂

  • I can relate! I recently came across this article (http://www.wisdomination.com/screw-motivation-what-you-need-is-discipline/) and it’s really helped me to focus more on getting things done as opposed to waiting around until I actually feel like doing them. Good luck!

    • Hey Peter! Thanks for leaving a comment and sharing that article with me. It’s awesome! I especially love this part:
      >Put in simpler form, you don’t wait until you’re in olympic form to start training. You train to get into olympic form.

      All the best to you in getting things done too, Peter! 🙂
