…here’s why you should be a part of it.
Those of you following me have seen me taking part in one or more of these challenges, for different reasons.
When you’ve just started a blog or are about to do so – the challenge is perfect to keep you writing. It will also give you tips and prompts for the whole month of October.
You’ll be forming a habit in the best case. Writing and posting something for 31 days in a row does that for you. Being part of a FB group with thousands of participants from all over the world helps, too.
Like Julia Cameron says, you have to write daily, no matter what, so you’ll learn how to write well.
The hardest challenge for a writer is to do it all alone, all by herself – and being in a group of fellow bloggers not only helps with your commitment. There’s a daily comment chain, so you can post a link to your latest article and commit to read and comment on the two articles posted above your link (see detailed rules in the group). Everyone profits from getting more people to read your posts and have them comment.
The more feedback you receive, the more you’ll learn. You can play with some themes and test new ideas. You’ll see how people react and how you can fine-tune your writing.
It’s priceless when you are new to blogging.
It’s still worth a lot when you’ve been writing for years.
If you are already experienced or want to re-boot our blog, you could choose to post 2-3 times per week, publish longer posts – and use the blog challenge to get more traffic, to experiment and test what works best for you and your writing.
So – sign up here: http://www.ultimateblogchallenge.com – and join the group on Facebook.
Also, watch this space, there’s a lot more to come.
