The post-a-day challenge for August has come to a close. What started as an idea from Cole Camplese (to challenge himself), for me, it turned into such a great challenge and learning experience.
I know I’ve already posted about my thoughts on the post-a-day challenge, but I’d love to sum up the experience as a whole … and talk about the future.
Not only have I learned to focus and not over-edit (or at least try) my posts, I’ve learned so much more:
- To open up
- To take a risk
- To respond quickly
- To post it and relax
I spent about 2 – 3 hours every night writing and editing my posts and reading others posts. It has been challenging, but I loved every minute of it. The timing of this challenge couldn’t have been better as I had *just* started this blog about three days before Cole’s kick-off post. The challenge forced me to dive in head first. Exciting and scary!
Going forward I hope to engage more people in higher education in a conversation around web analytics. As I’ve mentioned many times, web analytics is more than my passion.
To me, web analytics is about responsibility to our users, our students. It’s time to make it a priority.
