I am joining in with Vicki Jakes’ 30 Day Blogging Challenge to write 30 blog posts in 30 days. Write one post a day for the month of June, over in her free Facebook group Online Marketing For Busy Website Owners.
I must be mad right? (Please don’t rush to answer that!). Vicki is one of my clients, but is also my go to expert on all things online marketing. The value and support she gives her members for free is very generous. Vicki teaches us, and shares her immense knowledge, then empowers us to go out there and do it for ourselves. Her own blog can be found here.
It is a doable challenge though. The benefits of having the content on my website far outweigh the challenge of producing the content in such a short timescale.
Is it possible to write 30 blogs in 30 days?
You may well be thinking you barely manage to write a blog a month. How on earth could you come up with 30 blog ideas? Here’s a little tip for you. For a while now, any blog ideas that have come into my head, I have just been popping them onto a Trello Board. (Other options such as a spreadsheet are just as good, but I love the versatility of Trello). There are a few duplicates on there, but there is a list of 50+ blog titles to work with now.
I’ve always liked the notion of taking Friday afternoons to leave the home office and go and sit in (or even outside) a cafe to write my blogs and Social Media content. You know, like they do in the movies. I was really looking forward to a new cafe opening up nearby with work pods where I could go and sit and just write for a couple of hours. Covid-19 has unfortunately/certainly knocked that one on the head! As someone who has been advised to shield, I suspect it will be a long time before that can happen! I will have to rethink my strategy on where I write for this Summer.
Don’t worry, I don’t just want the next 30 days to be full of ramblings and pictures of my coffee cup collection. I want it to be useful, and inspire you to perhaps take on a similar challenge. Life can be very unpredictable at the moment, so if you can’t manage the 30 days that’s absolutely fine. Once a week, or even twice a month is great progress. What is most important is that you make the effort to provide useful, thoughtful and engaging posts to your current website visitors. Even better though drive new traffic to your website along the way.
