Having reached my goal of 365 blog posts in 365 days, I’ve been thinking about what I should do going forward. Producing this much content is definitely a struggle at times, but overall I enjoy writing and generating video content, and so I’ve decided to continue down this path. However, I’m planning to change things up a bit. Following my own advice to various ISV customers and MVPs, I will be “templatizing” more of my content. What this means is that many of my posts will follow defined templates, which is a great way to stick to a schedule. I’ve done this with some of my content, such as the #M365AMA series, but I’ll be expanding the model.

Here is what I am going to “templatize” over the next year:

  • Weekly #MVPbuzzChat interviews with MVPs. This is a continuation of the series I’ve been publishing over the last year, with new interviews dropping every Monday. If you are a current or former MVP or Regional Director and would like to participate in this series, please let me know.
  • Monthly #CollabTalk TweetJams + post-tweetjam interviews. The tweetjam has been running since January 2010, with no plans to stop this monthly community discussion. With the Twitter-based discussion, I will continue to publish 2 blogs posts per month: the panel overview with questions to be covered, and the follow-up interview with one of the tweetjam panelists.
  • Multiple #M365AMA panel discussions. I plan to continue publishing 5 to 10 of these videos and blog posts per month, answering community questions with a panel of MVPs and experts, including the occasional Microsoft employee. This is a great example of “templatizing” content.
  • Weekly Productivity Tips. My newest commitment is to publish weekly productivity tips as blog posts. I have a backlog of content for this category, and plan to publish a minimum of once per week.
  • Blue Plate Special. I realize that this is a departure from the rest of my content, but at least once or twice a month I will be blogging about some of my favorite bands/musical artists. If you’re a fan of 80’s new wave, emo, indie, and electronic music, you’ll enjoy this series.

I had planned to write more on partner / channel topics, but so much of this overlaps with content I am creating for AvePoint. There will be other posts on business topics, as always, but for now these are the primary topics and templates I’ll be following. Enjoy!
