I achieved half of it - the blogging part. Between my main blog, Libraries Interact and the secret anonymous blog, I wrote five substantive posts in the 15 days. That's definitely an achievement for me. And at least for tonight, the increased volume of posting is continuing.
I did not do so well with my goal of making 15 comments in 15 days. I think there are two main reasons for this. I underestimated how much extra blog reading this would entail. Of course, it needn't be extra reading - I could just read one post and make a comment and be done with that task for the day. But no, and this leads into the second reason, I felt self-conscious about this, and couldn't do it unless I really felt that I had something to say to a post. Sometimes it took me a while.
Who knows, maybe in June 2011, I'll embark on a 30 comments and 10 posts challenge. It's a fine line between giving myself a little extra motivation and having a contrived goal which makes blogging seem like another job (albeit an extremely small and part-time job). But then, in the last 15 days, there have been moments when the lazy part of me really didn't feel like wrtiting, but I pushed myself, and the results were good. A little discipline is sometimes a good thing, maybe?
