I have been trying to blog consistently but I wasn’t very successful until I came across the Ultimate Blog Challenge. The UBC is held every quarter- January, April, July and October.
When I joined the blog challenge I knew it would be tough. I had only been able to put up about 1 post a week and at my busiest about 2 posts a month so writing everyday seemed daunting. I love a challenge so I prepped for it by taking advice from Michele Scism and Michelle Shaeffer, hosts of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. They offered ways to come up with blog posts and posts you can do when you’re pressed for time. I had a month’s worth of blog post ideas but life got in the way and I wasn’t able to follow it.
As the month was going by I found myself finding an idea in almost everything I did. It came to a point where I had too many ideas and had to put some on the back burner.
I’m pleased to say that I was successful with the October challenge and can’t wait for January. Despite the challenge being over I’m still able to consistently post everyday.
I’m thankful for the experience and it has definitely made me a better blogger. I have more page views, more interaction with my readers through their comments and have been getting invites for events, product reviews and launches.
If you’re looking to blog more, gain more readers and are looking for a challenge then this is definitely the way to go.
