Can I Make it to 500 by the End of the Month?

I just looked at my profile and noticed that I have 490 articles here on Persona Paper, and since Paulie and CoralLevang have been so inspired and inspiring in goal-setting, I thought it would be fun to see if I could meet a goal of my own--to get up to 500 articles by the end of August. Of course, the challenge is that there are only three days left in the month!

Still, it seems doable, especially since this article will be number 491, leaving me with having to do an average of only three more per day. I think I can do it, especially since I believe I still need to do my old reliable monthly holiday article, as well as a related post. I've got a few things going on--one friend's birthday party on Saturday, meeting another friend for dinner on Sunday, and a portrait commission to finish, but all in all, I feel I should have enough time to spare. Wish me luck!

You can definitely do another nine in three days once you decide you want to! I think that goal is easier than those of us who set coin or dollar goals. You are in control of your goal. I am not in control of my dollar goal, no matter how hard I try. Now you have me motivated to change tact and set a post or article goal.

I'm glad to know that I have passed the motivation on--good luck to you!

AliCanary I've even now written a post about it! Nine more to go for me to teach 300 emoticon :smile:

If your posts are short and not long tutorials, you should easily meet your goal. Thanks for mentioning me and good luck!

I bet you could do ten GOOD articles, standing on your head, with one arm tied behind your back and an eye poked out, in your sleep!

Of course, why you would be sleeping with one arm tied behind your back is curious but, it's none of my business.

You can make this, easily, is all I'm saying.

I am sure you can. The stuff you have going on can give you at least one post each to write about.

I have been trying to get into the swing of things but can never ever get a photo or image to stick when I go to post something. I have a ton of cool images and pictures that I have taken over the years but i can't get them to "stick" when I try to post them. Good luck chasing the last nine articles!

One thing I have noticed is that images tend to disappear if you go back in and edit your articles. It's kind of a pain, but all you have to do is just re-upload it. It does encourage me to be more careful the first time I make a post, so I don't have to edit!

Hi, I am sure that you can make it. That is about 3 posts per day. Not too bad. Good jobs on all your posts.

Thanks for visiting! I have just eight more to go. It does seem quite doable!

Good luck and hopefully you do hit 500 articles.

If there is one person who can do it, it is definitely YOU!!!

AliCanary You and I both have 492 articles at this moment. Sounds like a great challenge. I'm game, and I am still busy this weekend, but will do my best to get the 8 in before September 1st!
Thanks for the mention!
