The next Challenge begins sometime 1st Quarter 2013!
We believe blogging is a great way to achieve success.
And success doesn’t need to be only measured by financial means. Success as a blogger can be measured by:
- the number of followers you have,
- the amount of interaction your blog receives through comments,
- social media mentions and bookmarking,
- the notoriety you gain by being the expert in your area
- and the satisfaction you receive by providing relevant, timely and interesting information.
Whether your dream is to build a great company, inform people about your passion, fight an injustice, teach people how to do something or some other reason, blogging can help you accomplish it.
We want to become better bloggers, and we want to help you become a better blogger, whether you’ve got years of experience or are simply considering starting your first blog.
So, we’re inviting you to come along on a wild – but instructional – ride with us!
31 Days to Building a Better Blog
Darren Rowse is one of the most successful bloggers on the planet. He authors the ProBlogger blog which boasts 136,000+ RSS subscribers and has helped thousands of people learn to earn a living through blogging.
Several years ago, Darren did a 31 Days to Building a Better Blog project. Thousands of bloggers participated as Darren posted a blogging lesson and gave a homework assignment each of the 31 days.
Darren has released a new and updated version of his book and we thought, “This would be a great time to do this challenge again.”
We think it’s always more fun to do new things with other people and share in the learning, especially if it’s something new. There’s no charge for the challenge, but you will need the book. The only cost is to buy Darren’s ebook, which he has graciously given us a discount code for you to use. We love saving you money!
Now that any cost objectives have just been obliterated are you game?
We want to do the 31DBBB process with a group of people who are as passionate about blogging and self-improvement as we are. It doesn’t matter what your experience level is. We’d love to see a group composed of blogging newbies and those who’ve been blogging for years. More important than blogging experience is a passion and willingness to commit to about an hour a day, every day, for 31 days.
We know we’re asking for a big commitment. But we wouldn’t make that commitment if we didn’t believe it was worth it. And we should tell you now that the 31 days are WEEKdays – we take weekends off, mainly because everyone needs downtime.
What We’ll be Learning
You might be wondering what we’ll be covering in our 31 weekdays. Allow us to enlighten you:
- Analyze a top blogger in your niche
- Find a blog buddy
- Create a squeeze page for your blog
- Leave comments on other blogs
- Hunt for dead links
- Promote a blog post
- Write a variety of post types
- Call your readers to action
- And much, much more!
You’ll be monitoring your website analytics to see how they change over the course of the 31 weekdays. The point of doing what may seem like a random bunch of tasks is to increase your and your blog’s online visibility. This is no small task, and the rewards could be huge.
In the end, our hope is that you’ll lift your blog to a new level that enriches your readers’ experience, attracts new readers and creates a higher level of awareness of your presence in the blogosphere. How does that sound?
