100DaysToOffload

Since I joined the Fosstodon community over one and a half years ago (boy, time really flies…) I constantly read posts with a hashtag #100DaysToOffload and wondered what the heck this is. Well, someday I read the description and just thought “what a nice idea!” (tl;dr: during a time span of a year, write 100 more or less useful blog posts). Though I never really thought about joining since I cannot imaging writing 100 blog posts in just one year (if you look at my blog you will see that I published five posts during the last two years, with that speed I would need 40 years to finish the #100DaysToOffload). Although I have done something similar in 2015: a project 365: posting a inspiring quote every day for 365 days. Well, more or less successfully: on some days I didn’t have time and therefore posted two quotes the next day. OK, there were also larger gaps where I didn’t post and needed to catch up.

However, this morning I read a blog post by Mike Stone stating that he will try the #100DaysToOffload challenge again after he already failed two times. And at this point for no good reason I started thinking that maybe I should try it to. During the day the thought grew more and more on me, so started writing this post and made a new To-Do in my system to write a new one every three days.

So be prepared for either some awesome and totally useless blog posts spamming you every few days or to watch me utterly fail this challenge. Or a mixture of both. We’ll see!

Day 1 of the #100DaysToOffload challenge.

I would like to hear what you think about this post. Feel free to write me a mail!
