So, I was reading one of my friend's blogs, Can Do Attitude (love that name!), and one post in particular was about habit forming skills. Jason Egan was writing about how easy it is to fall out of a habit like posting to a blog, especially when you don't have a large readership. And I whole-heartedly agree, so I issued a dare...try to post for at least 21 days in a row because I remember reading somewhere that in order to form a habit, you have to do something 21 times in a row.

And so another challenge was issued to me to do the same and we would see who had posted the most on November 22nd. Now, I am not one to back away from a challenge (although I do wish he had used the words "double-dog dare") and the game began. I am now seeing that he is for real as he has posted multiple times in the last 24 hours and now I need to step up my game.

I have only spoken with Jason a few times on the telephone and he seems like such a soft-spoken and sweet-natured guy, and I am afraid that this is going to get ugly. On top of that he has incredibly cute kids. I must not let me competitive "exuberance" take over and make me rotten. So, this will be a lesson for me in more than one way. I will form 2 good habit...the posting and keeping my competitiveness in check.

Now, I challenge you, my readers (all handful of you) to go and read Jason's blog and you be the judge. All in all you will benefit the most because you will have so much content to read. He has some really interesting things to say about technology and life in general. I have already learned some things by reading his blog and I'm sure you will also.

Shannon, I went and looked at Jason's and I think you win by a long shot. :) All depends on what you intend to do with your blog though I guess. I finally posted on mine again. Although I did like his $2.00 per pound for the Halloween candy idea.
