A couple of months ago, I (unsuccessfully) attempted to do a 30 day posting challenge on LinkedIn.
The challenge I set myself was to read 10 pages a day of ‘The Pragmatic Programmer’ and share the most pragmatic tips every weekday.
It didn’t really go as expected.
My first post (https://www.linkedin.com/posts/mazalkov_pathtoswe-activity-6757238298713837568-T-_g) did fairly well, and people seemed to be interested.
By the time I reached the end of the challenge (https://www.linkedin.com/posts/mazalkov_pathtoswe-activity-6771119516647739392-E2X1) engagement had dropped completely.
I wanted to share the same lessons I was learning with my network, but there didn’t seem to be sufficient interest to maintain the posting streak.
Some friends advised me to try Medium instead, so after months of university work, here I am at day 0.
I’ll be publishing my previous posts, as well as a direct link to LinkedIn when it was first posted.
For the first day, I didn’t post anything. The very first 10 pages consisted of the cover page and contents, so there wasn’t anything of value for me to add. Today’s post is only an introduction to the next few weeks.
Hopefully this will reach more people, and we’ll learn something along the way!
