4 Things I Learned From The Ultimate Blog Challenge
Here it is, the 31st and final day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. July has flown by, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the challenge was much easier than I anticipated.
I’ve done a few other blogging challenges in the past, and this one once before. That was for a different blog though, and I struggled to come up with content every day.
I was hesitant to take on this challenge but the fact that it terrified me so much was the reason I dove in, and I’m glad I did. Because you know what they say about leaving your comfort zone…
1. I can do it I can write every day. I can post something worthy every single day, if I want to. It’s nice to know that I can, and to recognize that I don’t want to.
2. I am full of ideas Seriously, I amazed myself. I had a list of 31 post ideas to start with and I only used about half of them.
3. My friends are incredibly knowledgeable and kind. Of my 31 posts this month, six of them came from people in my life with knowledge and experience outside my realm. I am honored that anyone, but especially these lovely souls, would take the time to work with me on a post and share their wisdom with us all.
4. I need to up my game with this website I am incredibly grateful for my readers and all the blog challenge participants who took the time to visit my blog and leave comments. However this made me realize I’m not getting nearly as many visitors as I’d like. I believe the content I’m putting out is high quality and worth readers’ time. So now I need to dig in, make some upgrades, and use some tools to help me get more viewers!
If you did the challenge, what did you learn?
If not, what did you think of daily posts, was it too much? What would you like to see from me in the future in regard to bookish posts?
As always, if you a post in particular resonates with you, please share it and let me know in the comments.
