30 articles in 30 days challenge

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


  1. WOW!!!!Once again, you have amazed and inspired me. Your 30 day article challenge is so so impressive. I have looked through some of them on facebook and they are all so detailed and comprehensive. What a powerful challenge to take on! I struggle to get one blog post out a week, but this is a real testament to what is possible! It sounds like you are acheiving amazing things and really playing life full out. I would love to see your articles appear on your blog too. I think lots of people in the blogging world would get a lot out of them!

    Love & Light

  2. Aww thanks so much for that Connie.

    I am working on expanding the articles more for my blog so I can post them once a week.

    I was getting realy unmotivated about alot of the things i was doing, but thanks to some challenges at home its made me more determind to get it DONE. lol

    Its always great to hear from you, you must be excited, you should be off to the one week intensive soon? Cant wait to hear how it went and see the results I know you will get from going.

    All the best Connie
    Much luv

  3. When you are done with the challenge how about inviting a few quest bloggers or do some interviews?

  4. Hi there Invetion addict, thanks so much for the follow and the suggestion.

    I am hoping to be able to get some guest bloggers to post here, im still trying to figure out how to get my blog site looking the way I want it too.

    The main thing I want to do is catergarise the posts so that I have a tab for each area I am writing about. Im such a NOOB at this, lol.

    Thanks again
