For the last few months I’ve been doing 30 day challenges:
– In May 2009, I walked 10,000 steps a day.
– For June 2009, I didn’t watch television for 30 days.
– For July 2009, I biked to work.
– In August 2009, I tried to read 15 books in 30 days. I only made it to twelve that month, but I knocked out three more later.
– For October 2009, I stopped using Microsoft software (both Windows and Office). That went so well that I’ve switched to Linux as my primary operating system.
– For November 2009, I needed something easy to do. I unsubscribed to Robert Scoble on both Twitter and FriendFeed. Robert is a fantastic guide to what’s new (and I like him personally)–if you’re just starting out there, he’s like training wheels to show you cool things. But back then he was going on about Twitter’s lists feature. It’s a fine feature, but I find talking about it as dry as dust, so I went Scoble-free.
– In December 2009, I went off caffeine.
So the question is: what to do for January 2010? Well, I’ve already been off Twitter for a week. I think I’m going to stay off Twitter/Facebook/FriendFeed for the rest of January.
Do you have suggestions for other 30 day challenges I should try? If so, leave me a suggestion.
P.S. We have some new webmaster videos almost ready. Normally I tweet about those instead of blogging them. So if you want to hear when those videos are released, follow googlewmc on Twitter.
