tl;dr I plan to create some form of content every single day in August.
In June this year I started on something I’ve found to be very useful in my goal of continuous improvement and increasing my discipline.
I started setting monthly goals with the mind of intense focus on 1 small thing that I can do consistently through the month.
I’m busy writing a post explaining the whole process in more detail (which I’ll probably release tomorrow) as it’s turning into something quite valuable for me. So as a part of this new regime, I’ve decided that for the month of August, I will create some form of content every single day. (if you want to run away screaming, now is the time).
My goal is two-fold. Firstly I want to get into the habit of generating content consistently, and secondly, it’ll allow me to experiment with the different platforms out there.
I’ll probably use my blog here at cameronolivier.com as a catch-all, and cross-post as much of everything I’m doing here, as an anthology of sorts.
From a video point of view, I’m looking to test out Snapchat (@billyrocha), YouTube, YouNow, Storie and maybe some Vines (@cameronolivier) and Instagrams as well.
Audio I’m hoping to start a podcast or two and do a few interviews (so iTunes and maybe Stitcher I think it is?).
And just to go properly OTT I’m considering using Meerkat or Periscope as a live-stream of the podcasts or maybe some of the video vlogs if they seem interesting enough.
As my time is already limited, I don’t see myself pushing out too many long-form things, and I’m hoping the video apps make content creation and dispersal relatively fast, but we’ll have to see.
Another concern I have is topics, as I haven’t really come in with any list of ideas – so I’ll need to start thinking on that as soon as possible, but I have a few rough ideas, being some code/front-end related topics, definitely some wordpress-based things. Then a few aimed at diet & training, a few at what’s going on in my life and a few on productivity and business stuff I’m learning. I’ve been focussing on a bunch of areas in my life and I think it’ll do me a lot of good to start journaling out what I’m learning and thinking on – so that should keep me busy for at least the first week.
I look forward to having you guys along for the ride.
PS. If you know of any more content, vlogging or podcasting apps I should try out or a BEME invite, leave me a message in the comments!
