Last year, I had set the goal that even if I wrote a Think Kit post for the SmallBox blog, I was going to write for my personal blog as well. Every single day. I remember one day in the middle of December particularly well. After a long day at work and a holiday shopping run, my resolve to write was waning, and fast. Starving and exhausted, with that Think Kit blog and a forgotten errand looming over my head, I managed to rally and get both done. It felt like a pretty major accomplishment to make it all 31 days.
Regular writing takes discipline, but having a little help with the topic goes a long way. The other beautiful thing about Think Kit is that every day, countless others are reacting to that same prompt. Some people will interpret the prompt in ways I never anticipated. It's really cool to see the diversity in perspectives and experiences.
If you could use a little boost in your blogging routine, join us. Here's the deal: nothing will crumble if you don't make it every day. There's no punishment or public shaming. If you don't love the prompt of the day, we'll have a fair amount of lifeline topics to choose from. Or, you can take a day off.
Here's how it works:
- If you sign up, you'll get the daily prompt delivered to your inbox in the wee hours of the morning.
- If you want see what other folks are writing, check out the 2013 participant list.
More tips for participating:
- Party on! If you're thinking about participating and you're in the Indy area, you're invited to join us for a Think Kit launch party on Wednesday 11/20 from 5 to 7pm.
