Day 9: Asking others to put the word out for me was difficult. I guess for me asking for favors when I’m not sure if the blog is all that great or something worth reading, is scary. I do have to look though at the results thus far of the blog and how many people are subscribing to it. It does give me hope that people are enjoying the blog and it makes me push to put out another post. So, I did get the message out and I’m hoping that my friends re-tweeted or shared my blog with their networks. I certainly appreciate everyone that is helping me in this endeavor. We’re rolling and I know it will take time to build a presence so I’ll just keep pushing. Baby steps Baby steps.
Day 10: On this day the assignment was just to share the blog on social media. I know I rushed this step in the beginning and was sharing all along since my point was to share this process with you all about the blog challenge along with starting the new travel blog. I understand the point though. If you don’t have another motive, it would certainly behoove you to wait until you have a good amount of info on y our blog. If you haven’t written enough all along, you would be sharing an empty blog, and that would defeat the purpose. So, definitely decide what you would like to do and roll with it.
I also have another recommendation for you. In regards to timing of getting a 30 day, or whatever type of challenge completed, complete it a number of days before and then post. This will ensure you are posting ahead of schedule. For me, knowing that there’s not enough information to share for a particular day pushes me back a day or two when I share leaving a day or two without posts between the next post. So if you can create your content a bit ahead of time, you are able to keep your audience fully engaged.
Alrighty then, off to the next day.
