Write Every Day [March 2016 Challenge]

Every month, I used to write about some sort of challenge I was doing for that month but I haven't done that for about a year now. Even though I was trying to improve my life, I wasn't committing to a monthly goal and I surely wasn't writing about it. I decided to reboot the monthly challenges so I can look back and say "Okay, this is what I've done to make myself better."

So, here we are at the beginning of March in 2016. This month's goal is to write every day. I've always said that creating content for a website (or portfolio) is the hardest thing to do; the technical aspect of the website is easy or at least easier because you can just install WordPress or even go old school and use an HTML editor and upload the content that way.

The websites that I built to promote Basileus (my content management system) are lacking content, so this challenge is 100% self serving. An added bonus to this challenge is that it opens up a future challenge of promoting my content.

This challenge also lets me test the "if you write good content, you'll get traffic." Hypercarry's traffic is decent considering that I have never promoted any of the content and I want to see if publishing more articles will drive traffic exponentially (the website actually receives more traffic than all of my clients' websites combined).

I'll have a post towards the end of the month that mentions everything that was created during this challenge. As a quick disclaimer, remember that the challenge says write something every day, not publish something every day, so there's a little grey area to hold myself accountable. I'll consider this challenge a success as long as I have 20ish new peices of content across my network of websites.
