On my quest for Agile blogging notoriety, I am often faced with the dilemma of what to blog about and how often. Some books advise daily blogging, some weekly, though all say more is better. But who has the time? And the ideas? So how to solve this problem? I don’t think there is really one solution, just some mitigation techniques and advice I can offer. Here are some things I do to document my ideas for blogs and try and blog more frequently.
The Pomodoro Technique is something I started reading about when I began doing Agile. It’s all about timeboxing and how it can be used to efficiently manage everyday things by “elliminating the anxiety of time” and “enhancing focus and concentration”. The technique specifically counts time in “Pomodoros” – 25 minute timeboxes in which to concentrate on only one task. Here I describe how to use this technique for Agile meetings and personal productivity.
