A day or so ago, WordPress put this post up.
Having already failed on the postaday challenge, I was instantly drawn to the idea of a ‘blogging buddy’. It’s my mission this year to keep this site fresh and sharing the experience may well help a great deal.
The idea is that you team up with someone who has similar interests and then set about the postaday/postaweek challenge together, inspiring each other with content and, more importantly, inspiring each other to continue doing something which can so easily be dropped.
I did as WordPress suggested and put my name forward, as did literally hundreds of other people. My reply was suddenly lost in a sea of text; fellow bloggers posting their likes, dislikes, preferred topics and gentle requests for someone to help them along. I quickly forgot about it. No one would spot a lone poster wanting to increase the music and tech content on his blog.
Then, within a couple of days, I had an email from a like-minded soul who had spotted my request. He too was into music production, technology and all things geeky. Suddenly, I had my blogging buddy.
That man is Chris, from Salt Lake City, Utah. Take a look at at his blog here.
Our goals seem to have stuck a chord (if you’ll excuse the pun) and I look forward to seeing how both our sites develop in 2011.
