One of my 2011 goals was to create a blog where I could record my thoughts about my progress in Jiu Jitsu. I had tried to keep a paper journal but I never really stayed on top of it. Knowing that I was more of a digital learner I decided to start a blog. So on December 20, 2011 I started AwesomeJiuJitsu.com. Since then I have published over 300 posts, averaged about 20-30 visitors a day, and recently had a pingback from Bjj.org.
At the end of last year my team mates and I set forth a challenge. We needed to get our gym’s name out there to help generate some buzz for our upcoming grand opening of our new location. One idea that was tossed around was to create 90 blogs in 90 days. Since I had already started AwesomeJiuJitsu.com I was up for the challenge. So were several of my teammates. Of course by the end of the second week everyone else had missed several days but not me! I ended up keeping my streak alive for 100+ days. I wrote roughly 28,000 words during that period about a subject I was passionate about.The most important thing to come out of those 100+ days was the new knowledge I had gained. Putting myself in a Jiu Jitsu mindset on a daily basis made me think more analytically about Jiu Jitsu.
So what does this have to do with my education blog? Well based on the title of this post I’m sure you can tell that I am going to attempt to recreate the magic I had with AwesomeJiuJitsu.com. My goal for the next thirty days is to blog at least once a day about something related to education. Over the next thirty days I’ll be sharing some lessons, concepts, tools, or just random thoughts about education. So strap in and get ready. The next thirty days should be interesting.
