Today I’m kicking off a 30 Day Content Challenge. The idea and challenge came from Josh over at blog.flightmedia.co. I came across him on Twitter and read a few of his posts. He has done some pretty good things over there. He increased his twitter following all the way to 38K+ in a very short amount of time. Heres mine, I’ll catch up soon
I haven’t been good at all about keeping this blog updated. I’ve said it before that Dan over at TMBA was right about blogging not being the best idea when starting out online. I agree for the most part, I’ve been super busy building out 4 websites and starting on 2 others. Along with trying to get some clients for my SEO agency. YakSEO.com. Plus tie all that in with working a full time job, with a family. BUT busy is good! I like the part of blogging where it makes me feel accountable and less likely to not identify things that are lacking or fool myself to think they are better than they really are by writing about them. Like my post about Google hating me, I’m 1k deep into a website that isn’t even getting any traffic, much less making money.
So this challenge will hopefully kick me in the butt, and get some content up. This will be good to be held accountable for writing everyday. Plus getting into the habit of producing content will be a good thing no matter what.
As of right now I have all but 4 days of content planned. Planned not written, lol. Things could change and the topics I have planned aren’t set in stone. There will be a good mix of written blog posts, screen captures, and a video or two.
I’ve never done anything but written blog posts. So it will be a good learning experience to get some screen captures and video going. Camtasia is the software I plan to use for the screen recording.
But if you all have any recommendations on good free software please let me know! The plan for the screen recording isn’t until the end of next week so I have some time to figure out what I’m going to be using and then also record the screen flow.
Here is a shot of my Google Analytics. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the end of the 30 days.
Check back tomorrow for the real start of some great content that I have planned out.
Until next time, thanks for stopping by.
