BLOGGING Challenge: Day 2 of 30
There’s a 30 Day Challenge for EVERYTHING!
On Day1 I explained why I wanted to do another 30 Day Challenge. In this post I tell you how I decide between the Blogging Challenges – because yes, there are multiples ones to choose from.
Blogging wasn’t my first choice. I follow one blogger and watch a lot of YouTube. I thoroughly read a blog post only if I’m searching for something specific, treating them as completely credible reviews. My search was one that I’ve typed in many times before: “30 Day Challenges”. The usual spit back at me; all fitness – squats, abs, beachbody, butt, burpees, flat abs, planks, arms. Is Google trying to tell me something?
So I skipped to SERP page 3 and things started to get more interesting. Challenges start to range from fun lists of Instagram photos to touchy daily spiritual practices. Then I fell upon a 30 Day Blogging Challenge. I wanted to know more.
Here’s my background:
- I don’t read blogs regularly and don’t know the standard practice.
- I am not a writer by trade, or an english, journalism, publishing or communications major. But I hope my business degrees in marketing count for something. (I’ve always been complimented on my memos and emails!)
- I had a blog once that I kept during my pregnancies, only accessible by my family. After four years, it was a struggle to keep alive, but I love going back to it and reading about what we did. I wish I kept it going.
- I’m not tech savvy, but my husband is.
There were three 30 Day Blogging Challenges I compared:
- positioned for new bloggers
- daily exercises to help build a blog from scratch
- “no costs” associated to the course, however can only use the program if you host your page off their iPage partner
- building your skills through daily writing exercises, whether you’re a new or seasoned blogger
- access to their blogging community via Facebook
- positioned for business blogs
- for those who seek to be location independent
- costs $20
Why did I choose to attempt Sark eMedia’s program?
- it’s truly completely free of costs
- the focus is not about monetizing your blog, but growth and depth of content
- I’m a complete noob and need a friendly and supportive environment.
- Run by blogger couple, The Arrows, Sarah and Kevin (= Sark)
My initial idea was to share my experiences doing 30 Day Challenges. What better than my first challenge be blogging, and what better program than one that was created by a bloggers who are still the face of the program to-date.
