February Fun: 28-Day Blog Challenge

The beginning of a new month is a fun type to set goals, right?! This month I’m setting goals a little differently than normal, because I’m joining Katy’s 28-Day Blog Challenge.

28-Day Blog Challenge

I’ve been making a few changes over the past month that you may or may not have noticed, but when Katy announced this blog challenge I jumped on the chance to focus my efforts and be inspired by others. I want to make this a place you like to visit and that’s easy to find what you’re looking for. That’s my goal as I make any changes here!

If you’re not a blogger, feel free to tune out now and come back tomorrow for my Week in Training recap. Or jump down to the comments and let me know what you’d like to see change!

Instead of starting with a full 28 goals on my list (one for each day), I’m going to start with the first 2 weeks and leave plenty of space to be inspired by your feedback and other participants in the #28DBC. I’m also not going to be strict about doing 1 per day (although that would be good).

I’m starting with the goal categories that Katy recommended to make sure I think broadly:

Blogging

  1. Update About and Coaching Bios
  2. Create video intro for About
  3. Find your five most popular posts and edit for grammar, broken links, add new information/photos
  4. Update Coaching pages
  5. Create blog signature and add to end of all posts
  6. Create new Vlog

Social Media

twitter, facebook, instagram, pinterest, youtube

  1. Review and refresh follows/friends on all platforms
  2. Create/edit lists

Communication

  1. Edit Google Reader folders for better organization & related blogroll
  2. Update media kit
  3. Create media kit cover letter
  4. Update Contact form

Community

  1. Write a post that includes links to at least five other posts that you found interesting
  2. Select a favorite blog and email the owner — tell him/her why you like it, what you admire most and offer some unsolicited POSITIVE comments

I’m really excited about this month and to see what (if any) impact these changes will have! If you’re a blogger, come join the fun and let’s improve our blogs together!

      I’m so excited to hear all the people participating this month. What do you mean by checking affiliate offers – that’s a new one for me.

      Good luck with the 100 burpee challenge too – that sounds tough!

    Interesting…I have never thought about a blog signature, but now I want one. :) I’ll have to look more into the challenge. I’m excited to see your updates and changes (even though I love what you already do)!

    The closest thing to a challenge I’ve got going right now is helping others with the Engine 2 Diet 28-Day Challenge that my Whole Foods is doing. I’m going to be doing some cooking demos for it, although I’m not taking the challenge myself.

    I’m participating in lots of challenges! The 28 Day Blog Challenge is one of them! I love your idea of a video in the about me section. If you don’t mind, I’ve added it to my list of to-dos.
    One of my big projects for the Blog Challenge this month is to create categories and classify all of my past posts. That one might take me all month to figure out! Good luck and have fun! :)

    That’s a great list. For those of us, not full time bloggers, it’s tough keeping up with all the little things we should do to keep our blog fresh looking and up to date.
    One suggestion someone made to me was to create a group of like interest bloggers. From 6 – 10 to be effective. Each member would comment on the other members blog. Support each other if a member were too busy by offering guest posts, and so on. I thought it was a great idea.

      Exactly – so many things competing for our attention! I like your idea of the group, I guess I kind of do that informally, but it’s interesting to think of making that a real thing. I’ll have to think on that one – thanks for the suggestion!

      Join the challenge – everyone’s doing it. ;) I’m sad I missed the bloggers dinner last night – miss that group! – especially since I was in the Atlanta airport. I hope we can plan one in March when I’m in town for the Publix half!
