Ever have a day when a checkmark, even a really big one, just isn’t enough reward for accomplishing something? What you really want to do is share it with others who understand.
There are days I could easily overwhelm my Twitter contacts with hourly (or quarterly) updates, but try to restrain myself to things that might give value to their day.
I really don’t expect people to read about all I accomplish. That would be counter-productive. The idea is to report your accomplishment and keep going, not read what others are doing. Maybe every few hours we cheer each other on.
How many would like a place to share that sort of thing.
Ideas so far:
A forum on onebit.ca . Easy to set up, but I won’t get fancy with skin and other options.
A WordPress.com blog, with multiple authors. Choose a skin with an RSS feed for comments. Or not — the goal is we update our status more often than we read others’.
(Side note: Where does the apostrophe go for plural things that belong to plural other people?)
A separate Twitter account, and a Twitter-list of people in the group.
If it’s a forum or blog, maybe one main entry per day and everyone uses that day’s comments section for status messages.
Possibly a daily quote or goal or motivation or laugh. Take turns, informal.
Point system? Very informal, humorous. A monthly award for the most points?
