I guess the same can be said of daily blogging that I have pointed to on writing, in general.
1. Write something every day.
2. Read everything you can find.
And if you do those two things, it might just work out in the long-run.
Austin Kleon said it all better here.
I particularly like the story he shared on quality vs. quantity.
“The ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio, he said, would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right solely on its quality. His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the “quantity” group: fifty pound of pots rated an “A”, forty pounds a “B”, and so on. Those being graded on “quality”, however, needed to produce only one pot — albeit a perfect one — to get an “A”. Well, came grading time and a curious fact emerged: the works of highest quality were all produced by the group being graded for quantity. It seems that while the “quantity” group was busily churning out piles of work – and learning from their mistakes — the “quality” group had sat theorizing about perfection, and in the end had little more to show for their efforts than grandiose theories and a pile of dead clay.”
Definitely, do not miss reading Kleon’s post on doing something small every day.
All I know is that I would like to get to 10,000 posts as quickly as possible.
However attainable that may, or may not, be – here goes nothing.
