Seth Godin on daily blogging:
For years, I’ve been explaining to people that daily blogging is an extraordinarily useful habit. Even if no one reads your blog, the act of writing it is clarifying, motivating and (eventually) fun.
As he says, you’ve gotta get past the first couple hundred posts to see the most value. This is why indie microblogging is so useful. Start with some short posts, a few photos, and eventually it’s a habit. Stick with it and you’ll really have something.
In Micro.blog we have some pins to encourage people to blog more often. You’ll unlock pins after your first photo, 10 posts, setting up a custom domain, and more. Today, if you mention “Halloween” or “pumpkin” in a blog post you’ll unlock the special Halloween pin.
