Challenge in 2010: Project 52


Today, I visited Liz Hover's blog and saw that she had found another amazing online challenge. As you may remember, Liz was my blog buddy when I took ProBlogger's 31-Days-to-a-Better-Blog course, and she gave me some much appreciated input. The challenge involves making the commitment to post new content every week for the next 52. The initiative is aptly called Project 52. It starts tomorrow, January 1, 2010, and ends January 1, 2011.

I was the 469th person to sign up and become a member of the Project-52 Google group, where forums will be held. Project organizers will be using RSS feeds to see who is towing the line and posting new weekly content.

In recent months, I have given up some responsibilities at work because I wanted to spend more time at home. Well, now I'll be home, but I may not be that available. My husband did give me the old eye-roll when I mentioned the new undertaking, but 1 post a week is not excessive. After all, I already told the blogosphere on my anniversary that I would be posting twice a week.... So what's the problem then? Well, I have also committed to doing a book review a month next year. I may need a helping hand or a guest blogger from time to time. Anyone interested?

Secretly, I'm anxious and excited about getting started. I hope that Project 52 will be as beneficial as Problogger's course. BTW, it's free, so if you're interested click on the above link and sign up. If you're lacking just some motivation, then imagine how motivated you'll feel with over 500 bloggers giving you encouragement and visiting your blog.

I hope that I will be able to honour this resolution in 2010.
Happy New Year!

I think we got a lot out of buddying with each other during the ProBlogger challenge. I think Project52 will be more loosely defined though. It's pretty much up to you to define your post. I'm trying to solicit ideas from folks: http://www.lizhover.com/2009/12/what-do-you-want-to-read-about-in-2010/

I agree that it will probably be more loosely defined, but I'm looking forward to the forums. That's where I got so much inspiration and so many ideas. I'm still crossing my fingers that it will morph into something spectacular. Plus, it makes for a great resolution. One post a week is doable.

Thanks for sharing this challenge H. I'm looking forward to it. I'm already planning on doing a few other challenges, one or two per site to keep me motivated this year so this will really help.

You're very welcome! This is a great way to get us through the weeks when it's hard to post, like when we go on holidays. H
