Soooo, I’m a little bit behind the ball on this one! I joined the Boost Your Blog in 100 Days Challenge, and it began on February 15th! So that means that we have some catching up to do. But that’s ok, because it’s something you’re not going to want to miss.
What is this challenge all about? Our goal is to spruce up our blogs in 100 days and get our Social Media guru badges by connecting with others, quitting the “rat race” and making our blogs more stream-lined so they’re working for US, instead of us working for them.
I love getting to know more bloggers and cheering, supporting and encouraging each other along the way in the process. That’s where this great challenge comes into play. Boost Your Blog in 100 Days will play out in 10 day challenges covering topics such as Twitter, SEO, Blog Post Topics, Pinterest, and getting more blog traffic.
Intrigued? I hope you are! If you are a blogger I invite you to join me and our challenge hostesses as we seek to boost our blogs!
Why Thaleia choose 100 Days? Well, to be honest I am a very, very busy mom of 4 children 11 years and under. I do not have extra time to spend laboring over by blog and Social Media. I want results and habits that can transform the limited time I have into something incredible. Spreading out 10 challenges over 10 days each just sounds better to me. Spending just 10-15 minutes a day versus an hour or two makes more sense to me. Easing into each new challenge should help create a habit a little easier. This will also give you a better understanding of why a particular challenge should be done daily or weekly and how it has helped you.
Quick clarification- anyone with a blog CAN participate. I did seek out an initial 100 bloggers to help promote this series in exchange I am using their blogs to direct people to during the 10 days of Comments Challenge. Hope I have not confused anyone. You may do one or all 10 challenges at your own pace or join in daily.
