What is Iron Blogger? Basically its a group of people that what to try to get better at blogging writing and use drinking as punishment. The basic rules are that you need to post once a week or else you pay $5 into a pool once that pool gets big enough a social gathering is organized (usually with drinks in mind) and is paid for from the aforementioned pool. The results are automated and based off of the RSS feed from your blog and the ongoing tallies are automated and published for shame and enjoyment here.
This current incarnation has been organized by Mako Hill and the results live here. My understanding that that this from of punishment, torture, and reward originated at the MIT Media Lab but has since branched out to include others (such as myself)
So why am I doing this? Just a little ways in and its apparent that I’m not exactly a frequent blogger. I think is actualy fr that exact reason that I am putting my self out there. Writing has always been a point of anxyity for me and like many mental activities form puzzles to math, writing is kind f like a muscle in the sense that you need regular workouts. So with hope this bit of anxyity will become ever more fruitful and effortless the mre I practice.
Hey otherwise I just am buying drinks for a bunch of cool folks, but what else is new.
