As I sat in the sun streaming through the window today and thinking about life I saw that Nouw, the blogging forum that I write for are having a 30-day Challenge, it is a kind of like a ‘competition’ to make us work harder as bloggers to create a more professional blog which has a more refined niche and to blog 30 days straight with no exceptions. This is the perfect incentive to get my blogging into gear and create fun and exciting content for you all and to really find what works best for me and for all of you, plus who doesn’t work a little harder when there is a little more competition. If you want to find out more about it here is the link, nouw.com/nouw30daychallenge because it doesn’t start until the 22nd of January so this could be the perfect new year push to start that blog you’ve always wanted to, or dust off that old one and go for it!
So, what do I want to accomplish during this 30-day challenge?
- -Main thing is consistency, I would love to write more than 2/3 posts a week so this is about sticking to a schedule and creating a healthy and effective way of finding time to write, and doing more to find interesting content.
- -Getting a more defined niche, of course it is sustainability but I would love to have a more defined way of writing, perhaps more factual posts on certain days and more product based posts on other days.
- -Finding out what you guys like the most, and getting a wider reach of different readers depending on what people enjoy reading.
- -Finally, more interaction with you as my readers and other bloggers, it is so important to help and support one another so we can all grow together.
Today, I was talking to a friend about how I use my blog to really let out my stress and anger when I read upsetting things and make it into something more positive. Like yesterday when I wrote my post about Climate Change, I was so angry when I was researching different things about the effect of climate change and felt that letting that out into a more positive, let’s do this together post makes me feel like at least I am doing something even if it is only small and helps me to maintain a more Zen control in my life.
I think it is really important to find what makes you love your blog and work on that so that you create exciting content but also really enjoy doing it. I have a hard week coming up next week with visiting a sick family member so will be doing my best to keep blogging everyday or keeping active on my Instagram @jasminstales and then I will be giving it my all and really getting my butt into gear for the challenge and then from there onwards.
Good luck to you all, I am very excited for i! #nouw30daychallenge
