That's Cool!

This badge challenge is a lot more difficult than ever. I think I need at least 3-6 months to complete it!

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take that first step today.

@Andy Barker - TWNKLS AR моля! ;) 

I love this board, but I'm also feeling the competition rising! I know what happens once a man gets a checklist!

I'm back from Poland, so it's time to prepare for a fight. It's gonna be tough - webinar, team building and hackathon ahead :O

@Teodora {Botron} Да го направим ! ! 😎🤘 Bring the fury!
Us men are totally useless... until we're handed the checklist; then we know exactly what to do and how! 😉

Good luck to you Grumpy! Make sure you find time for yourself and your awesome writing 😊

@Kat Warner {TechTime} : Absolutely, and I LUUUUUUURV you copied it 😍💙 Totally supports my ethos of Knowledge Sharing and means that the Atlassian Authors are collaborating together towards getting this badge!

Here's the Card description (with formatting). Feel free to edit as necessary (especially the opening sentence, obviously really personal)

The heat is on.... finally time to prove my Author-worth to Bridgie!

@Jodi LeBlanc has already posts 7 or 8 articles since the badge was announced No wonder she is Level 10!

No only 5 so far @Kat Warner {TechTime} :) The ones in the Trello PEI group don't count as articles (any post inside of a group is considered a discussion).  I created a Trello PEI group recently and moved some of my old posts into the group over the last couple of weeks. They are not connected with the author badge, as any post inside of a group is a post (not an article).

Hard not to want to chase this badge though, you,Teodora and Andy make it so fun!
