Week 3 and I’m still here. I’m really glad that I took this challenge. Finding time to blog every day has not been easy, but I have managed to do it. Hopefully from here I can finish this challenge.
This week, I have:
- continued to edit my story, looking at setting, plot, conflict and resolution, all of which are important parts of a story
- Rewritten my ‘About’ page
- Written up some of my testimonials which was quite nice to do
- worked out how to use infographics and discovered a nice little free program to help me do it
- finally set up that editorial calendar by adapting Sarah Arrow’s template
- enjoyed reading and commenting on other blogs also taking part in the 30 day blogging challenge
This week, I am back into the full swing of school, college and work, so free time has been a little more limited. It is not always possible to post every day, but I am determined to have 30 blog posts by the time I have set myself.
This is what I have learned this week:
- to keep chasing testimonials, because they are very nice to have. In the past, although I have asked for testimonials, clients sometimes forget to send them. I need to try and get them if I can.
- I liked my ‘About’ page when I read it, but it did need some updating – apparently I last rewrote it about 3 years ago!
- To keep finding time to blog – even small bits of time can be used productively if you are ready to go and know what you want to write.
- initiating other calls to action rather than just inviting comments on the blog. I always try to ask a question for others to answer in the comments but asking for a social share was not something I had (embarrassingly) thought of!
Another week, another learning curve! Roll on Week 4!
