Lean 30 : 30 days of keeping it lean and old school online. More
In January of this year I started a Lean 30 series as a way to get back to old school blogging. I made it as far as post 12, as I didn’t write every day, and thought that I would be a nice idea to reboot this project and continue on at number 13. I like the idea of starting new projects or ideas at the end of December rather than at the beginning of January. For the same reason I celebrate milestone birthdays in my 8th year within a decade rather than when I click over into a new decade.
Maybe I just have a well entrenched need to try and be a touch different.
By starting a project in December, I won’t get caught up in the usual round of “what’s your new year’s resolutions this year because we want to write about how you’ll break them in a few weeks”.
How about you? Have you tried writing pared down posts devoid of links, photos and video embeds?
