I have recently become a Community Leader (woohoo), and amongst the information that was sent to me, was a link to the Atlassian Authors Awards article, published on 17 January 2020. So I set about reading all the linked articles that were contained within it, to see what tips and tricks I could find in how I write and present my articles.
@Andy - PTC Redundant has the most conversations sparked in 2019 and there was a link to his article entitled 'Welcome to your first article/discussion! Fun Man Andy’s Guide to writing on the Community' Which has loads of hints and tricks for writing your first article and is utterly amazing BTW!
On this article, he shares a picture of a Mood board, which has a picture of a badge that he’s working towards, and I thought it was an utterly brilliant idea! So I headed off to Trello, and sought out a board that I could do the same thing on!
At the moment, I’ve only published one article, so the rest of my ‘Trello Community’ board was pretty empty, so I thought that I would create a list per type of Badge that you can get. I did this by going to my profile on Trello and seeing what the headings were for the different types of badges.
There are 8 different types of badges:
This is what they look like as lists:
Then I discovered that if I hovered my mouse over the badge on my profile, a little bar would come up underneath it to show when I achieved it. Not only that but when I did a screenshot on my Mac, the little achievement bar would stay there. I was in heaven!
So I quickly took screenshots of all the badges that I’d earned, including the date I earned them, and put them in the appropriate list! As well as changing the board background to something suitably inspiring!
At the moment, this will be my second article, so I still have a list called 20-01 Articles, where I put articles that I’ve written in January, along with another couple of lists for articles that I’d like to write in the future, but at the moment everything is on one board, badges & articles and plans.
If you already have a lot of articles published, you probably already have a Trello Board for those (probably more than one!) but consider having a Badges Board as well, you’ve earned them!
