I joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge!!!! Oh boy, I’ve done it now 😆
I just committed myself to releasing a new blog post, EVERY DAY, for the month of July!
Oh snap!!!! My first thought is “oh boy, everybody sure is going to get sick of me.”
I first heard about the Ultimate Blog Challenge a couple weeks ago, I went and checked out the website.
While the site wasn’t big (meaning there wasn’t a ton of content) or flashy, what it said really hit home with how I’ve been feeling about this site.
Ok, let me be a little more specific, I know that was a little (ok a LOT) vague!
Up until recently, I’ve been pretty content to just let this site/blog grow at it’s own pace, organically.
Sure, I write blog posts, post them on social media – but that’s pretty much been it.
Recently, I’ve started to feel that it’s time to “shit or get off the pot” so to speak and either really do something with/about this site as far as growth goes or just walk away from it altogether.
So, the first thing I did, was give it a face-lift with a new theme, which I hoped would make it clearer, cleaner, and easier to navigate when someone first landed here (take a look at the home page and see if I succeeded – I’ love your feedback).
Next, I took an inventory of every blog post that’s here on YarnyBookkeeper.com and organized all of my content using Trello (the free version).
Taking this inventory confirmed what I thought…..
There’s a lot of content here, relevant to handmade and creative business owners, about how to handle bookkeeping tasks and other “behind the scenes STUFF” – but I’m just not getting it out there to them….
I need to do more!
The Ultimate Blog Challenge was the bright, shiny object that caused me to stop and say… perhaps this isn’t the right audience, but this challenge will:
- Help me to become more consistent in publishing blog posts. If I can publish a new post every day for a month, going back to a weekly post should be a piece of cake LOL
- Make some new connections. Since this whole COVID-19 pandemic started, I’ve really isolated, both on and off-line.
- Brainstorm some new ideas. That would be super nice.
- And, even if the others who joined the Ultimate Blog Post Challenge aren’t my target market, perhaps they’ll be able to offer up some suggestions.
That’s it for today!
P.S. If you’ve subscribed to my newsletter, don’t worry I won’t be filling your Inbox every day. Newsletters will still only go out once a week and it will contain a digest of all the posts since the last time 😛
