Aiming for 100 Articles by the End of the Month

For those of you who have kindly taken the time to read anything I've written during my five weeks here, you may have noticed I'm a rather goal driven person. I like to set myself little personal targets, then striving to achieve them. Sometimes I wish I wasn't like this, but it does tend to make life interesting.

So, when I took a look at my stats on here tonight, my little inbuilt goal driver smiled. Aha, it said, you're getting close to having written 100 articles on here. Why don't you aim to do that by the end of the month.

Now, who am I to argue with my inbuilt goal driver. I looked at the number of posts written, 83 so far. I considered that there are seven days left in this month. Okay, 17 articles shouldn't be impossible in seven days, should it?

So, now I've done it - I've told you what I hope to achieve. Now I have to do it. I have no choice. It's not about money and earning. It's simply about setting a target and reaching it. There's not much of February left, so it's up to me now to get on with writing.

Then you need to write more than 3 articles every day. I think it not so difficult to complete it. The key is how to get more traffic to your articles.

As far as traffic goes, I rely on my commenting to do that for me. This is just an output of daily writing for me.

You can hit 100 easy emoticon :smile: It is amazing how fast you can add to your total. I know I am amazed at how well I've been doing. Never thought I would have as many as I have.

JeanC until now I've focussed more on accumulating coins. This is a different approach for me.

7 more days to go. You can do it. Good luck!

I am sure that you can and will do it. I know it took me several months to write 100 articles! I believe I had done 95 when I reached 5,000 coins (part of that was back before they paid two coins per view.)

Oddly enough, I looked at both my eBay listing tally last night and my PP post count this morning and thought the same thing as you. You'll more than likely manage your centenery though, whereas I have lots of other things to do and will probably just miss out. Go girl! One of us has to make it.

Not I. I make more writing one article at another site than I would 100 here. What would be the point? Maybe in future, if things pick up.

That's good to hear. I hope to read your success.

That should be an attainable goal. I wish you luck

Sorry dear, I was inactive. I haven't visited since January, just now. I know you can hit the target

Goals are one of powerful motivators and I hope you are able to reach your goal.

Setting goals is what life is all about specially when no one goads us but us. One more article and I will reach 800 - June 24 - February 22 - 8 months exactly - 100 articles per month - what a strange coincidence. But here I did not set a goal. I just write as ideas flow.

That sounds like a totally reasonable goal and I hope that you achieve it. :)

I don't do it for money VinceSummers I do it for sheer pleasure. But, even in pleasure, I set myself goals. Writing here is a break from writing my book.

VinceSummers wrote on February 22, 2015, 4:21 PM

I understand. So why the rush to write a gadzillion articles then?

valmnz wrote on February 22, 2015, 4:29 PM

It's fun, I love setting myself little challenges. It's what I do in stead of watching TV emoticon :smile:
