143 Days Shipped: Here’s A (Mini) Progress Report
4/22/22 marked my 143rd day shipped in a row since 12/1/21.
How It Started
After a tumultuous 2021, I decided to begin a 90-day #ContentStorm from December-March.
I didn’t know yet that publishing online daily was called “shipping,” and embarked on the journey with only ONE goal — consistency.
Would consistency change my content writing trajectory? What would I gain?
By 1/1/22, I’d found Ship 30 and enrolled, ready to really take this bull by her horns!
How It’s Going
I learned what didn’t work (for me — your mileage may vary!) 👇
- Daily blogging
- Survey Monkey (surveys in general)
I also learned what does work!
- Ghost (rather than Squarespace + WordPress)
- Ghost (rather than ConvertKit, Mail Chimp, and Revue)
- Daily shipping on Typeshare, Twitter, Medium, and LinkedIn
- TikTok (everyone should be there)
Some things take time, too:
- Building a newsletter list
- Gaining TikTok followers
- YouTube. Period.
Still Trying to Decide
- Hypefury or Black Magic?
What Was Gained?
I found focus, clarity, and my niche.
In the process, I tested a Squarespace site against a Ghost site and learned that blogging daily on the Squarespace site for 30 days didn’t get me much of a traffic bump. It’s true — blogging is dead.
Why spend time on that? It’s exhausting!
I’ve learned plenty of things from my fellow shippers, who taught me what they wanted more of from me.
They also got me interested in stoicism and knowledge management systems! I picked up some YouTube and republishing tricks. I met a ton of gifted and creative people!
