Iron Man Challenge - Am I a Stone Man?

Permanent link

Gabor asked what I'm missing from the Iron Man blogging challenge. Gabor focused on the contents of the blog posts, I'll talk about the challenge itself.

I'm missing the things announced on their website: a way to find out to which level you made it, a monthly selection of best blog posts, and all these other things that were designed to create some competition, and more fun.

Don't get me wrong, I like to read the blog of my fellow Perl programmers, and it motivates me to write more often myself. But that's not all that was promised to us.

One thing I'd like to add about the content, though: So far most of what I read was very good and informative, but it was all text. I know it's not easy to find nice on-topic programming pictures, and use.perl.org doesn't even allow the inclusion of pictures in posts, and I don't do it often myself, but having more picture or charts would be nice.
