A few times over the past couple years, some friends and I took part in a few 30 day blog challenges. The challenge was to write a blog post every day for 30 days. The goal was to train ourselves to getting in the habit of writing on a regular basis. The result was less than perfect. I ended up with at least half a dozen posts written at 11:45 PM that were hardly worth my time to write. I've sworn to myself that I won't subject myself (or my readers) to that mess ever again. That doesn't mean I'm not up for a good blogging challenge!
Darren Rowse from ProBlogger.net is putting together the “31 Days to Build a Better Blog” challenge. Each day he'll send out an email that will have a 10-15 minute task for you to do in the interest of improving your blog.
Now this is the type of challenge I can get excited about!
If you aren't familiar with Darren, his blog at ProBlogger.net has over 80K readers and his blog at Digital-Photograpy-School.com has over 160K readers. It's not a stretch to say the guy knows what he's talking about when it comes to building a blog. If he's willing to share some of his insight, you'd be silly not to listen.
The challenge appears is set to start on April 6th. Register now and get ready to take your blog to the next level!
Leave a message in the comments if you plan on taking part in the challenge. We'll compare notes when it's all over.
