New Challenge - #30DayProject - Day 02

You may have noticed that I have recently started writing a little more here on the site, hopefully that's a good thing. I was inspired by my good pal Stacey Lindes (@iRunTech) as I watched her write more on her site iRunTech.me and try to live a more Writerly Life. It was actually Stacey who convinced me to start the #100DayProject with her last year. I was actually pretty happy I did it because I didn't think I could write every day for 100 days, which I didn't quite achieve, but it was still a lot of fun trying.

I've decided I wanted to try being more deliberate with my reflection process now that I'm coming up on a whole year with my new job and feel like I'm starting to understand what I'm doing. I've missed writing so regularly and hope that by taking part in another challenge it will help me jump start the process. While I want to do another challenge, I don't think I want to commit to another #100DayProject so I'm going to start a little slower and try for a #30DayProject instead and then see where it takes me from there. So like with the #100DayProject, I plan to have the same rules in place to help me along the way of this #30DayProject.

  1. I will have at least 1 post per day on EdTechBabble.net tagged with #30DayProject. I may do more than one, but I have to post at least once per day.
  2. In order to make that happen, you may see all sorts of different things posted here besides just education or technology topics, but that's where the "babble" part of the title comes into play. 
  3. In order for it to be considered a "post" it has to have at least 1 paragraph of text that is my own writing, not just a quick picture or quote. I want to see if I can improve my writing by taking part in this challenge and this is a good way to keep me honest. You may see some link-posts where I am sending you to check out another great article from some other site, but I will still include at least a paragraph of my own commentary with the link. A great example of a link post is when I wrote about Making Space on iOS where I linked to an article that Bradley Chambers wrote about how to move things around to make more space on an iOS device. It was a great article and I still stand by the ideas he shared. 
I hope you all will consider joining in the crazy fun of making something for 30 days to see what you can come up with. And if you do, please be sure to tag it with #30DayProject so we can all see what great stuff you are making. Here's to 30 days of fun!
