You probably aren’t aware that I work for a company called WooThemes.
We make awesome products that help you sell stuff online.
Last December, a few of my team mates took part in an internal blogging challenge, Blogging for Benjamin, where we would each write a blog post every day for a month, and the winner of the challenge would take home $100.
I didn’t participate, because I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to keep up the momentum of posting every day.
Anyway, this year, another fellow WooNinja, Bryce Adams, has decided to revive the competition. The rules are the same, one post every day, about anything, at least 250 words (and bonus points for including an animated gif in each post!) The only difference is there’s no cash prize this year, and it’s been renamed Blogging for Hippo (in reference to the name of the upcoming version of our eCommerce plugin).

So this year I’m going for it, in an attempt to try and make blogging more of a habit, and less of something I do every few months 😛 (yeah I’m not sure why I chose to join in now, rather than when there was money involved either! Must be something to do with intrinsic rewards or whatever!)
So obviously, my first post (the one you’re currently reading) is dedicated to explaining this little challenge (that’s not cheating, I checked!)
But also, since you’re going to be hearing from me a lot over the next month, why not leave a comment and let me know what you’d like me to blog about.
I’m thinking it will be mainly art/painting related, but I’m open to suggestions, as I have been known to go off on tangents from time to time.
Anyway, I’m way over my 250 word quota, so I’m gonna leave it there, otherwise I’m just wasting words that I could be saving for tomorrow! 😛
