Well, along with my affirmations challenge and my 100 day reality challenge I have also taken on a 30 articles in 30 days challenge.
I am a busy busy girl lol. Of course, I didn't prepare myself for this challenge so I am finding myself in the midst of all sorts of challenges.
I am focusing on scheduling a little more consistantly to ensure I meet my article deadline each day and my blog deadline each week.
I am also working on a course that I hope to be able to launch in a couple of months. Again, busy busy girl lol.
Now with regards to my newest challenge. I am now on day 12 and have written and posted all 12 articles to my facebook page.
It realy has been a matter of trial and error with this one. Firstly, all my articles are going to be based around the "Living Your Balance" concept. I had a list of 50 topics that I was going to use for blogging and figured it would be a good list to use for my articles, so thats where all the article ideas are coming from.
The reason I have posted them to my facebook page is to get some feedback on them before I posted them on the article sites I am using, mainly Bukisa and Squidoo. There have been a few extra benefits that I have found that are coming from this. I have grown my "Living Your Balance" face book page from 3 followers to 51 followers in a matter of 12days. This has been mainly due to a certain person who had sent invites out to everyone on her list to come follow my page. Another benefit I am finding is that I am able to get alot more exposure to other users as well. By joining and promoting my articles I have also gained a number of followers.
I am also learning how to edit pretty quickly, and I am re-visiting alot of personal developement topics that are realy making a difference in my life.
I also wanted to blog through this experience, for myself to review the ups and downs and the things I have learnt and I am hoping this will also help anyone who is thinking of writing articles as a means of making a bit of cash.
As with everything I am doing, its all about experimentation. I realy am working all the angles to see what results I can achieve and I think that 30days is a good time frame. Keeping them as challenges is good for me because I love a challenge and I always try to find some creative ways to overcome them.
Once I have completed the 30 articles I am going to go through them on the article sites and start to re-write and re-work them using key words and those sorts of things to ensure they are set up for maximum exposure and maximum content. However, I still have no idea how to do this lol.
Some of the articles I am not completely happy with, but if I sat on them till they were perfect I would probably get out one a week so this is also helping me get past my perfection beliefs.
My next few blogs will be coming in fast due to the fact that I have a number of updates to add and wanted to seperate them as best I could.
I want to also introduce you to a great guy I have met through twitter who is a web designer and currently has a ebook about setting up your own website, something I am lining up to purchase in the near future and I will blog through my journey with that when I have a chance to actualy put some time into my sites.
So much to do and I am def finding my focus swaying. Overload of information at the moment so I will be chunking down to get the most out of my time.
If you want to take a look at a couple of the articles I have published on Bukisa, ive left two links in my Weblinks to the left of this post. Feel free to take a look and let me know what you think.
I love quotes, so I am going to add a quote to all my blog posts from here on in and will eventualy add them to my previous ones as well as soon as I get a chance.
So today I leave you with this quote:
“Accept the challenges so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory.” - General George S. Patton quotes
I wish for you a life lived with passion
