Use beeminder to force yourself into writing regular blogposts

Posted on

Beeminder is a online tool to track goals like blog posting, weight loss/gain, read mail or how much you go biking. I’m now using it to force myself to write 3 blogpost per week.

The catch behind the idea is that you pledge a certain amount like 5.-/$/£/€ for reaching your goal. If you can’t reach your goal in the given time the money goes to Beeminder.

This gives you a certain pressure to do the stuff you should do.

For counting the blogposts I’m using the plugin beeminder-ping. This automatically updates the count on the Beeminder if I publish a blogpost like this.

So from this moment on, if this works, you’ll see more regular blogpost here.
