The Project52 Challenge

During the end of December last year I, along with many others, somehow got caught up by the #p52 hashtag and, in true 'resolutions that I probably won't be able to keep' stylé, I took on the challenge. The idea is as follows:

The goal is to write at least 1 new article per week for 1 year.

http://project52.info

I'm kicking that off with a new article about useful .net dev resources and how to keep up to date. I've also finally made some good use of my free basecamp account by making a list of potential articles so I should be on my way for at least a few months. It's finding the time that could be tricky.

The idea has already 'persuaded' me to get some more functionality up on to cargowire. The categorisation of my posts is now exposed through url routes (e.g. http://cargowire.net/articles/tagged/general) and I will be tagging all my Project52 posts appropriately at: /articles/tagged/project52.

Additionally I've begun to add 'table of contents' links to the upper right of articles. Thus allowing skipping down the article. Commenting functionality is coming soon... I promise.

I'm also going to try and run a commenting #p52 alongside the article writing, as Yaili proposed.

Looking forward to a fun and productive 2010!
