Hi everyone! Are you ready to become a fantastic blogger and someone who shares and gives so much that people can’t NOT opt into your list? I am! For the next 6 weeks, 5 days a week (OR, however you break up your 30 days to suit your business), we are going to do just that – tap into our “giver” mindset so much it hurts (in a good way).
Note: My blog for the challenge is called 6 Ways to Be a Better Blogger
I made a vlog for today but will write more below:
I hear people worrying about not having things set up yet. That doesn’t matter! I had planned to have everything mapped out and I got nothing mapped out but a basic idea for 2 gifts. So what? I’m going to do it anyway.
In fact, at the time of this specific blog post, I don’t even know what I’m going to blog about today – I’m curling my hair and I’ll figure it out shortly. I just wanted to get this post here so that you guys don’t have to wait on me. Go ahead and post in the comments whatever amount of sharing you want – including things like (take or leave the ideas):
- That you did your blog today.
- The link to it.
- How it felt – the success or struggle you had with it.
- A request for feedback on how you did. Isn’t our goal to improve and become the best we can be? So no fear – this is a supportive community, not a bash fest – you know I’d tear them up if those kinds of people ever showed up here.
Whatever you want to share about the challenge, go for it. And remember – some of your audience might be HERE on MY blog. Dog and cat owners, people with health problems, make money online people – all of it.
And what’s great is, the supportive members of my community here – even if they’re not interested, they might share your links on Twitter and Facebook and Google Plus to help YOU get traffic if they like your post.
I don’t believe in spammy “you backlink me and I’ll backlink you” crap. But if something you see stirs you, great! Help the blogger out – or not.
One thing I would like to ask for those who plan to GIVE feedback when someone asks for it, is please leave the feedback as a reply to their comment here on MY blog.
Well, everyone here is going to give it their ALL, right? And many, many people are nervous. So let’s say Jane Doe writes a post and does her best for her cat blog. She asks for feedback.
If you go to HER blog and leave a “feedback” comment where you’re picking her efforts apart, it might deflate her courage – and when she DOES get traffic to her site, I’d prefer the cat fan readers she gets to not see someone critiquing her right off the bat. Make sense? I’d rather the visitors to her site land there, read it and say, “Hey this is great!” rather than, “Oh that person’s right – she screwed this ALL up!”
So let’s make this post for day 1 our community of support and strengthening our efforts. And I DO encourage you to leave relevant comments on each other’s blog posts when the feeling strikes you.
The social proof is fantastic and it really boosts the ego of the blogger and that ego boost gives them confidence, which results in better content.
Okay so here we Gooooooooo!
Kick some big old blog butt, people!
P.S. If you’re not on my list…err, umm…I’m supposed to be leading the way here, so sign up! I have an almost daily version (below) or a weekly digest!
