Hi, I’ve used Beeminder for a few months now. The first 3 or 4 weeks went well. (I only had one goal.) I then failed a fair few times (I must have spent over $50 in total by now – I often decreased my pledge). But the past few weeks I’ve regularly just put in fake data into some of my goals, and now I think I’ve messed up any hope I had of actually properly committing to anything… I guess maybe having an accountability partner would help?
I’m archiving one of my goals, and I’ve set one of my other to a rate of 0, so now the only goal that I’m focusing on is bedtime. I used to make all of my goals private, but now I’m making this one public, so you can see it here: https://www.beeminder.com/pyng/bedtime
This is not the fist time I tried to log a bedtime goal. I had multiple false starts where I messed up and deleted it before the week was over to avoid paying.
(I hope “Newbee” is the right category for this post!)
