Last week, after a beautiful Tuesday evening meet up with a bunch of Perth bloggers who are heading off to the big Problogger event next week, my friend Jo and I were standing at an intersection in Leederville, watching the pedestrian light cycle through green about twenty times because we couldn't stop talking.
Most of our chat was about our excitement about the pending Problogger experience although we did briefly complain that the plane trip(s) from Perth to the Gold Coast take a LONG time. But Jo and I are both pretty positive people, and when I mentioned that last year I wrote a crazy number of blog posts on my Problogger flights (yay for batching and no internet) we came up with the challenge:
Who can write the most blog posts on their way to Problogger?
Well, we Perth bloggers are definitely up for this challenge and have a big advantage of practically a whole day's travel time in which to do it in. At least four of us are on the same flights and although we won't sit together (hard to blog and talk, right) we will meet up in Sydney for a progress report.
But we're prepared to find other non-Perth bloggers who can be even more productive than us, so we are issuing this challenge Australia-wide - make that worldwide - and we're keen to hear just how many blog posts you can draft between your hometown and the Gold Coast.
If you're going to be at Problogger this year, please feel free to take up our challenge - leave a comment here and tweet me (@amandakendle) with your progress report. The winner gets ... lots of glory and a well-deserved blogging break thanks to getting a bunch of posts at least into a decent draft form!
