The End of a Month of Daily Publishing & Loose Ends

30 Nov 2014 in Commitment, Publishing, Writing

To Do ListSo it’s the end of a month of daily writing and posting… I’ve already posted some reflections about what I’ve learned from the process, and although I have a number of partially written posts I could tackle to post tonight, I find that instead I want to talk about what’s next.

Although there’s certainly been some value in the practice of daily posting, I fear I’m compromising quality for frequency.  I’m tempted to continue with a daily writing practice, and trying to make sure I have time structured for that. However, I’m not so sure I want to post from that writing on a daily basis.

For me there’s a bit of a tension between writing freely and quickly, and writing something ready to be shared. I want to keep a flow of free writing, but then come back and edit it for publication. And I’m game to commit to publishing weekly, and I’d like to post even a few times a week, but with only the “promise” for once a week.  That certainly feels quite doable at the moment since I just managed to do it 7 times per week for the past 30 days.

So… November ends with a bunch of loose ends. This is the TO DO list as I see it.

  1. Put some images and visuals in most of the posts to make them more engaging.
  2. There are articles for me to go back and finish writing/editing:
  3. Ones I need to cross-post to my Agile Learning Center Blog
  4. Ones I should cross-post to MetaCurrency or other Currency resource sites
  5. Ones I should cross-post to Ceptr site, Apocalypse or github tech docs
  6. Things I should integrate into the Emerging Leader Labs site/materials

Of course it seems like after a month of writing I have more writing tasks to do than when I started. :P
