Blogging Challenge

Happy New Year! This is the first post of 2015, and the first post of a new project, a 30 day blogging challenge. I am announcing this publicly, because the purpose of this site is to help others achieve success online, and this is a project that can benefit everyone, no matter what type of online venture they are involved with.

Let me start by giving credit where credit is due. The blogging challenge I am undertaking is the brainchild of Sarah Arrow, an author, blogger and marketer I met online through the Earn1kaDay Insider's Club. She has put this challenge together to help people develop and improve their writing skills and business habits.

Click here to see Sarah Arrow's official Blogging Challenge page explaining the program and offering a free sign up for daily emails detailing each days tasks. The challenge is free, and Sarah has a Facebook Group set up for those doing the challenge where everyone can get encouragement, help and support. Feel free to join me in this challenge!

A consistent blog can drive traffic, engage the readers, and generate leads for the business. Over time, it also will contain content that can be consolidated into a book or information product.

As a successful marketer and marketing consultant, I am always looking for new and better ways to engage with my clients and potential clients. I have written a blog off and on over the years under different auspices, but it is not something I have done consistently, even though I am aware of the many benefits that come from consistent blogging.

​I started this blog about a month ago as some old projects wrapped up and some new ones presented themselves. The timing of meeting Sarah was perfect, because this challenge is exactly what I need to stay focused on this site. I am also hopeful many of my subscribers will take this challenge, either with me or in the near future.

​The 30 day challenge is designed for both new and experienced bloggers. Everyone, regardless of experience level, can benefit from a focused regimen and an accountability program.

If you have some experience with websites and/or with blogging, you can dive right in by signing up for the 30 days of emails that contain the challenge instructions for each day. If you are very new to creating websites or to blogging, I recommend first picking up Sarah's book, "Zero to Blogger in 30 Days". The first half contains technical help in setting up and running a blog, and the second half covers the 30 day challenge.

The best thing about this is that everyone benefits. You, the reader, will have a better site to come to with more information geared to helping you succeed online, while I will improve habits that will keep this site moving in the right direction for a long time to come.​

​This year is going to be productive and prosperous for all of us. Set yourself some attainable goals and see great success in 2015. Be sure to check back often and see the progress the blog is making. Hopefully, it will inspire you to start a blog of your own.

​Here's to a successful start to the new year!

  2. Hey Ed, great to see you joining us on the challenge :). I think you’ll do great, however, we do have a history in the group of men quitting before they reach day 30.

  4. Good choice Edward! I did it also in December and it was one of the most useful online experience I ever had.

  5. I started before Christmas but hit some personal problems and rather than beat myself up I just stopped and am about to restart – now Im in a much better position.

    Reply
    • That sounds like a great decision. It never does any good to beat ourselves up when we can take a step back and regroup. Good luck on your blog when you restart. I’ll be rooting for you!
