October has come and gone and I’ve completed my #blogboost hosted by http://ultimateblogchallenge.com/. Let me share with you a few takeaways from this challenge.
Be Realistic – With an energetic and talented group of professionals I set out to blog each day during the month of October. Being realistic about my blogging schedule and committing to posting weekly was more feasible for me. Though I averaged a once per week post, archiving insightful news clips, podcasts, and YouTube vids never stopped. This challenge fueled my excitement to share more tips, trends, and small business goodies as time goes on.
Find Your Blogging Rhythm – Every blogger has to find their own rhythm. Like most things in life we need to find our road and stay on it. The goal is to get started and stick to a schedule that works. If our rhythm slows, adjust accordingly.
Just Do It! – Blogging for business does not have to be a chore. It’s OK to add a personal life experience into our blog to keep it interesting. The goal is to “just do it”. Fresh content creation is always the goal! But, it is perfectly OK to share what we’ve learned or appreciated from another blogger or professional periodically. The options are endless, we simply need to get the ball rolling.
So if I completed a 31 day blogging challenge you can do it too!! Check out these handy resources I found along the way to help inspire your inner blogger.
