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 B - PTC 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 V 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 : 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!

2) Gain 50 likes (or more. Grand total over all articles)

@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 :) 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!

Congrats! Not going to lie @Kat I have no idea what that is but YouTube will tell me very quickly :D

Lol @Jimmy Seddon I wasn't sure of that song either, but fearful of youtubing in case it does get stuck in my head, as Kat said :)

@Kat I assume this is a take on Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer".

Thanks @Andy B - PTC my strategy was to post 1 (sometimes 2) article(s) a day, and get them all online before the holidays (when people may not be online as much - less people, less opportunities for likes). When the articles are online, they will have the opportunity to get read, and over time accumulating to the 50 likes needed!
