Random daily thoughts of a web developer
Writing posts for this 100 blogs in 100 days challenge has become an addiction.
I don't want to stop even though it seems it isn't doing my search engine rankings any good (which was the primary goal).
And it's taking up far too much time.
So why do I keep going?
Because I don't want to be beaten by the challenge!
That's silly because who cares? And, the challenge is just an abstract concept.
I would be better off giving the time to writing longer more useful and in depth articles on a less frequent basis.
But I carry on regardless!
I suppose I can still see some pay-offs though:
- It might still help my rankings at some point
- I can say that I've done it, and might be able to create a short talk on it
- I'm learning quite a lot
- I'm generating a lot of ideas that could be the basis for longer more useful articles
My big fear though is that it is just a form of procrastination, stopping me doing more important stuff.
