In Taekwondo, students are taught they must perform each kick at least 1,000 times before they can safely say they have learned the kick perfectly.
I’m not sure I craft “perfect” blog posts even after writing 1,000 of them—but I’ve certainly learned a few things.
(For the record: I wrote 440 posts on the Blogger-based WebMarketCentral blog between 2005 and 2010, and have now published 560 posts here on Webbiquity. Hence, 1,000. It’s true there have been guest posts published here, but those have been balanced out by posts I’ve written for other blogs.)
Here are a dozen things I’ve learned and observations I’ve drawn from writing 1,000 blog posts.
