On the 1st January 2012 I decided to embark on a journey which can only have been called foolish 😉 The Ultimate Blog Challenge to write 31 posts over the whole of January. I did it and actually learnt a lot about my blog along the way. I used to blog 3 times a week and to be honest that became a bit hard to maintain, with children and Charlie Moo’s . I now try to be consistent and blog once a week which means I only have to schedule in 4 posts over a month which is much more sustainable.
Before the summer holidays I was really pleased with the stats on this blog, the majority of the traffic comes from google searches and I really believe there is some great content and resources on this site for small businesses. BUT just like everyone else I have been hit by the summer holiday slump and most of that due to 1) the fantastic weather meaning less people reading blogs 2) the fantastic weather meaning less blog writing from me!
So when the Ultimate Blog Challenge link dropped into my inbox for October I thought why not give it a go again. It’s a bit of a tall order considering we are away this weekend and it’s my birthday and it’s half term in October!! But you have to be in it to win it (although I must stress there are no actual prizes from the organisers but feel free to send me wine and inspiration!) … I’m hoping to use this month to do 2 things :-
- Actually tick off all the blog ideas on my to do list and finish up the drafted pieces from months ago.
- And double my current daily visits.
So wish me luck 🙂
