I wanted to blog since long back may be around 2007, as I had many experience to share. It is very hard to start something which is not in your comfort zone, I procrastinated to blog. The discomfort was my poor skills in English grammar and my spelling mistake. But finally I pushed myself and started using my commute time for blogging using WordPress for android. So I generally collect the content while travelling and format it on my Laptop.
Now, since I am pumped up as I shared it with few of my friends. I am motivated to take a faith of leap and do something extreme with blog posting. I am planning to write 3 blogs per month for my past whole decade. Now there may be lot of questions but my idea here is I had many experience in my life’s archives.
I will try to explain few of the tactics I will be using during this process:
- I will go through my email archives.
- Chat with my old colleagues.
- Share about my weekend projects.
- Write about my trainings and meetings.
- Client side experience.
- Check my twitter feed.
This seems to be a huge commitment but I believe it’s worth the shot. Now, let’s create a Backlog for this project by doing some math
- I am targeting 36 blogs for a year which is till October 2012.
- Half hour for each blog post comes to a total of 18 hours.
- This is roughly 3 working days or rather 1.5 weekends.
- So now my big Goal looks manageable for at least 3 days.
The work has not yet started still I feel well in control. The key here is time boxing, a concept from agile development process. My current velocity is 12 blogs per day or 6 blogs half day. I might also need to do retrospection after 3 days of work. The big goal is to hit 10 years from now that is till June 2004 when I started my career. So, the total blog count is 333 (Nelson in cricket) and 36 targeted above is the sub set if 333.
I will complete my decade of work experience in June 2014.
