I Failed My Writing Challenge

This one is going to be a quick post.  But yes, I failed my writing for 30 days straight challenge. I’m going to have to restart this one. The biggest challenge I had was writing right before I went to bed. Often I’d be so tired that I’d just crash so the desire to write […]

I Failed My Challenge for the Second Time

Day 22 of 30 of Writing Challenge This is not the first time I’ve slipped up in my write for 30 days straight writing challenge. I failed one day about a week ago and I’ve done so again yesterday. Again the culprit is sleep. I feel asleep before I could write my post. Excuses excuses […]

Fighting Myself in Order to Keep My Zeo Sensor on My Head

Day 21 of 30 of Writing Challenge I think last night was my 4th or 5th night with the Zeo mobile sleep tracker. Each and every night during REM sleep I’ve had my sensor come off. At first I thought it must have fallen off while tossing and turning. However, I’m starting to suspect that […]

Zeo Score of 33: Zeo Doesn’t Like to be Charged Upside Down

Day 21 of 30 of Writing Challenge Going to sleep has definitely been more exciting since getting the Zeo sleep tracker. Each night I get to try to beat my previous sleep score by just sleeping. It’s fun also waking up to discover what was going on while sleeping. Anyway, I learned an important Zeo […]

Less Sleep But Higher Score Than Before Zeo 76

Day 20 of 30 of Writing Challenge Last night was another fun night with the Zeo mobile sleep tracker. Here is the data from last night: Here is the sleep graph breakdown: I’ve been monitoring my sleep for the past 3 nights to see my sleeping habits. In 3 nights I’m convinced that this device […]

Second Day Zeo Score 106

Day 19 of 30 of Writing Challenge So I used the Zeo again last night. My score was 106, but that’s not all me. I let Sandy try it out when she went to sleep so about an hour of it is her stats. Even so I slept more than the night before by about […]

My First Day ZEO Score is 73, Now What?

Day 18 of 30 of Writing Challenge Like I mentioned yesterday I purchased a ZEO mobile sleep monitoring device. I wore to sleep for the first time last night. Comfort-wise the ZEO sensor is OK. Not the most comfortable. Not the most uncomfortable. At one point during the night I woke up and the sensor […]

Pornification Post and MyZeo Sleep Coach Excitement

Day 17 of 30 of Writing Challenge 2 things I want to include in this post. First thing is that I finally published the post I had been working on for ELM called “Pornificaiton: The Future of Web Startups“. Initially I had called the post “Porn Startups.” The reason being was that this post started […]

I Failed One Day in My Writing Quest

Day 16 of 30 of Writing Challenge The goal is to write for 30 days straight and I have failed in this quest by one day. I’m disappointed in myself. Let me make my best excuse for missing one day. This whole week I’ve been getting about 5-6 hours  of sleep a night. While other […]

The Sweet Surrender of Sleep

Day 15 of 30 of Writing Challenge I’m pretty tired right now, but I forced myself to write. I figure if I don’t do it now there’s a good chance I won’t do it tomorrow (or today since it’s already morning). The rule for writing is to just to write something. Here’s my something. I […]
