Ultimate Blog Challenge - publish 31 blog posts in 31 days
I had a simple aim at the beginning of this challenge - just to get into the habit of blogging. Just that.
I wasn't sure I would make all 31 days, especially as I started 3 days late. But I surprised myself and got there.
And there is so much further than I ever thought it would be.
I got well over 1000 page views in the month, over 100 of them in one day.
My facebook page likes went from about 30 to over 100
I've gone from no blog followers because my links broke before I started, to over 50.
The great thing has been the interaction with my visitors. The more posts I put up, the more comments I got, the easier those posts became to envisage, write and publish.
I found out that people like the style of my tutorials, so from now on I will be uploading a new tutorial every Tuesday. There's a new challenge :)
I have a whole lot more confidence now that I can make my dream come true - make a living just from my creative endeavours. There is a whole lot more to do, but the hard bit of marketing my work no longer seems like an impossible climb.
Thanks to everyone who has organised and taken part in this challenge. It has been illuminating to read all your blogs and I think there will be many hours reading and applying some of the great advice. Good luck to you all and maybe see some of you at the next challenge :)
