Conclusion of February 2022 Blogging challenge and Way Forward

  • Writing

Welcome to Day 28 of the February 2022 blogging challenge. Today is a Monday, and the theme for Mondays is on podcasting under “MyPod Mondays”. I will be publishing a separate post on my podcasting blog, something that I haven’t done for the past two weeks. I had planned to publish 500 words every day. For the two months (January and February) I exceeded my word count, even though I was not able to publish one post for each day. This year, my goal was to publish at least one blog post of 800 words, for every calendar day.In other words, the target was to publish 28 blog posts of 800 words each, which brings the total to around 22,400 words. As of yesterday, I had published 25 blogs totaling 24,500 words. Additionally, there are four posts are scheduled, to be published. They were written in the previous weeks, but they all require some updates or minor tweaks.

  • Writing

I use a variety of writing tools and programs for my blog posts. One my goals is to try different SaaS (Software As a Service) tools that we have subscribed. The challenge is, many of these tools count words in a different manner. In order to avoid any mis-understanding, I would like to clarify the following:The published word count for nearly every post published during the February #bloggingchallenge is actually less than the actual wordcount.

Experiment: Blog site on Blogger (Now discontinued)

Update January 2022: The below site has been discontinued, and I have moved all my blogs to this site- with the exception of my podcasting blog. -Amar Vyas

I set up a new blog site on Blogger yesterday, and it almost happened by accident. The site, posts.amarvyas.com, actually came up when I began tinkering with the settings for Blogger.Learn about my experiences with Blogger.

In a matter of hours, I published five blog posts on that site, which gave rise to a thought:
What if I continue publishing multiple times a day (say, 3 to 4 posts per day) for an entire month?
