Chris Brogan Says Blog Every Day

6 comments

Last week, I made a comment on the lovely Mary Ulrich’s blog about doing a daily blogging challenge.

I have been thinking about this for a while. It would help build traffic and exercise those writing muscles of mine. Writing is like keeping fit. After a layoff, it’s harder to get going again.

When I commented on Mary’s blog, after she had a surprise visit from A-list blogger, Chris Brogan, I had a vague idea of doing this sometime in the future. Mary, however, had other ideas. She decided to start immediately.

So, I’m running like crazy to catch up.

My Goals for the Daily Blogging Challenge:

1. I am going to try keep my rather verbose self under control and limit myself to 500 words and under. (Are those sighs of relief, I hear?)

2. I’m going to include at least one video and one audio. (You might actually get to hear me say the word ‘tatties‘ in my Scottish accent.)

3. I’m going to blog every day for 30 days. Think of it as a new 30 Day Challenge.

I also plan to stop sending links to my blog posts to my personal Facebook account on a regular basis.

If you would like to continue to receive posts, please subscribe to my list by putting your email address in the box at the top of the page or you can ‘Like’ the Facebook box to the right and get notified in your news feed when I post.

If you find some aspect of the blogging challenge – daily posts, shorter posts, video, audio – to your liking, please let me know in the comments or contact me so I can continue to produce more of what you like. 🙂

So, Mary, let the challenge begin! Are you ready?

Alison this is going to be great. I feel privileged to collaborate with a real Warrior Woman. I’m hoping to get to read some great articles and get to know you better. Now, bet you already have tomorrow’s post ready to go.

Hey, Mary:

I have been working on some posts. And I am looking forward to seeing how we grow – as bloggers, our readership, our styles, topics. A true learning experience. I am so glad to have you with me for the ride! 🙂

Melody!
I would love to have you join in. Our 30 days will be up in less than a week. I’m not sure if Mary will continue to post every day, but I’m thinking I might. Let me know if you’re interested. I’d love an personal organizer as a partner.
