Today, I committed to the ultimate blog challenge – blogging every day for 30 days. This will be a challenge! And I came late to the game, it started October 1, so I’m not sure how that works. Do I have to double up on posts in order to complete the challenge? Or does my 3o days start now? I’ll deal with that later, for now, it’s time to start blogging.
My friend D’vorah Lansky invited me to participate in this 30-day challenge. D’vorah is an active blogger and recently wrote the book , Connect, Communicate and Profit. The book is all about building successful relationships online and I highly recommend it to anyone with questions about using social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, or about blogging.
I’m always on the lookout for materials that inspire me with new ideas and one of the perks of signing up for the challenge, is that you get a free booklet, 7 Ways to Get Your Blog In Motion. In the booklet, the first thing they suggest to fend off the fear that you won’t have anything to write about is to make a list of things you know about–just a quick list of things that pop into your head. So here’s my quick list:
- web design
- image editing
- E-commerce templates
- Google Checkout
- Google Analytics
- Website traffic statistics
- Dad’s 93rd birthday today. Happy Birthday Dad!
- 30 day challenges
- Facebook movie – I gotta see it.
- web hosting
- e-mail marketing
- the 10 pounds I can’t lose (another 30-day challenge?)
So in the next 30 days I’ll be writing about some of these things and some other things that pop up in my world of web design and internet marketing. I’ll also try to answer any questions that come my way.
My hope is that in the next 3o days, I’ll become more efficient in my blogging practice, and that I’ll provide a valuable resource for readers in the process.
