So, this is it then, my last blog post of 2010 and therefore the final entry of the Year Blog challenge.
I had the idea of doing this around the middle of December last year, set up a blog and began writing on the 1st January 2010.
There were in fact two others – Harry and Nick – that decided to join me on this journey, although both fell short of finishing and decided to leave behind the burden of having to write something each and every day.
Without the use of WordPress and various phone applications (iPhone and BlackBerry), this challenge would have been near impossible, especially on the occasions when I was away for a few days on holiday.
People asked why I was doing this and what the point is, the answer is simple – I just wanted to know whether I could do it or not.
The positives of writing so much unique content are that the site ranks quite highly and pointed a few people towards my other blog, which has a more specific audience.
Each month the hits have been increasing, so much so that December received almost triple the amount of traffic as half way through the year in June.
What’s next? Well, I keep telling everyone that I will not continue with a second year of daily blog posts.
Why? There is a danger that doing something for so long will become almost addictive and this is something that I do not wish to happen.
So, all that remains for me to say is to wish you all a Happy New Year and thanks to anyone who followed my progress throughout the year.
