The 8-week writing challenge

June 19, 2017

I'm starting a new habit. I'm gonna write every day and publish a blog post once a week for the next 8 weeks. I'm going to publish non-programming related stuff here on my blog and for the programming stuff I'll use Two Bucks' Blog.

Many consider 21 days a time range for a new habit to form, but it's mostly bullshit. It's a bare minimum. Everyone's different, but it takes around 2 months for a new habit to form. A month is roughly 4 weeks so I've chosen to publish every week for the next 8 weeks.

At first I thought about committing myself to publish a blog post every day, but that would be too much of a commitment for me and the content would suffer. That's why I decided to go with an easier version of that. I'll write every day for an hour or so, but only publish once a week.


I'm committing myself publicly to do this. I'm gonna use #8weekwritingchallenge hashtag for this. Join me and share your blog posts with that hashtag on Twitter.

DISCLAIMER: I'm probably gonna fail miserably after a couple of weeks, but meh.
