Robby Slaughter on Blogging Speed

Posted by .

AccelaWork’s Robby Slaughter spoke at Blog Indiana on the topic of blogging and productivity. The topic: “Producing Content Without Agony.”

My presentation last time was simply called “Workplace Productivity and Blogging.” I also did something rather audacious back in 2009, which was to write a blog post live in only ten minutes. The audience generated the idea, a volunteer names Michael Sparks helped edit the productivity growth post, and we put together a complete article in under six hundred seconds.

Writing a blog post in ten minutes is so much fun, I did it again for Roundpeg. But I had to top my previous performance. A blog post in under ten minutes was impressive, but one has to ask if we can do it even faster. So how about a post in a mere five minutes? Do you think it’s possible?

Let’s be clear: this is an insane proposition. Not only am I suggesting that I can write a blog post in about the amount of time it takes to listen to a Lady Gaga song, but I’m betting I can increase my efficiency by 50%. At that rate, I would be writing a blog post in two-and-half minutes in 2011, in 1:15 in 2012 and in only 37.5 seconds by 2013. So yes, this is a crazy idea.
