In June I tried to write 4 blog posts and I elicited help from some of my friends to do this. I managed to write 5 posts beyond the announcement I would blog:
- Capturing a screen sub section with ffmpeg
- FreeBSD on the Intel 10th Gen i3 NUC
- Command Line Bug Hunting in FreeBSD
- My Streaming Setup
- Quick and Dirty Network Scanning
Of course it wasn't just me, I asked other people to blog to help me stay on track. The idea here was that seeing other peoples blog posts would inspire and force me to keep going. This worked reasonably well. The pressure to write the blog posts was there, but publishing was harder. This ended up with me pushing several posts in the final few days of June.
The pressure didn't really show up either, I know that the others wrote blog posts, but they didn't tell me!
They were great sports to get involved and help me with this, you should look up their blogs and drop them into your rss reader.
Because this wort of worked I think we should aim to keep doing this. Now 4 posts a month is a lot (maybe even too much) and so I thought that 8 more this year would be good. That is about 1.3333333... a month and seems entirely achievable.
I am going to try and blow this number out the water, but even if I fail completely and only manage one or two more post that will still be great.
