Blogging Every Day in September

I am about to do something stupid. Over the next month, you’ll see the top of this page change every single day as I attempt to release one blog post every day during the month of September. It’s going to be crazy and wild and I’ll probably give up, but it might be fun too. Maybe. Read on to find out the how and why I came to this decision.

I got this idea when I was in a motivated mood back when August first started. I felt like if I really wanted to get ahead and turn this blog into a legitimate source of secondary or even primary income, I needed to hustle. I needed to get stuff out there and make it awesome. If Hamilton could write like he was running out of time, I should be able to too. You like that reference? I thought I should pepper a few in jokes like that since this is probably the least geeky post I’ll ever write.

I came up with the idea on August 1st and scrambled to possibly have it ready to go right then and there. All day I was tossing and turning about whether or not I should take the plunge. I eventually decided that September would be a better for a few reasons.

Number 1: September is only thirty days, so that’s one less day I’d have to write.

Number 2: I plan on counting my weekly Saturday Morning Updates as posts and since September has five Saturdays that’s five fewer days to worry about.

Number 3: I had all of August to plan and put together a bunch of posts. Some of them are ready to go and some are just flickering ideas.

Number 4: I had a really busy summer in this city and August was too soon after so many busy weekends. October is going to be all about Comic Con and after that, the holidays take over. September is a nice season in the middle of nothing.

I’m planning a variety of different posts to see what’s popular, what works and what doesn’t. I’m not strictly going for quantity over quality either. Some of the drafts I’ve started are super complicated with research and some complex photoshoots in the works. I will admit though: I have about half the month planned out so this could easily be a disaster.

Feel free to request specific topics you want me to tackle or things I should review. If there has ever been a time when I needed post ideas, this is it.
