Congratulations! You’ve made it to Day 31.
Hopefully you’ve found some of the challenges over this last 31 days to be useful. Thousands have completed the program over the years and I’ve heard so much great feedback, but there’s one thing I’d like to share with you today on the podcast.
What’s the key to really getting the most out of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog? And how do you do that? I share all!
You will need a calendar set up somewhere so make sure you have one you can use before you get going with today’s challenge. Nothing will change if you only think about it, so we’re going to ensure you’ve got the tools to keep on going the way you have and to really get stuff done. It’s all about keeping active, so I’ll help you put some strategies in place to do just that.
I’m also going to share what the format for the usual podcasts will be and where you can find more activities to keep you busy and your blog the best it can be.
Thank you so much for joining me this month, and I hope you enjoy today’s episode.
Followed your advice (somewhat) about “creating lots and lots of evergreen content,” and striving to stick to the script.,SEO has somewhat improved. One thing DNN has noticed is increased shares on social networks from longer content on blogs and forum threads: a very good thing.
I followed many of the posts from the 31 day challenge.
All of them rocked ;)
I’d add one thing; know why.
Like, know why you’re blogging, and tie that reason to being free. Because if you fear doing uncomfortable stuff – for many bloggers, that’d be these tips – more than you want to be free, you’ll stay in your comfort zone, ditch this dead on advice and you’ll struggle mightily.
I know this from personal experience!
Once I blogged to free me and to free my audience I deleted 3400 posts from my old blog, trashed that sucker, started Blogging from Paradise and I went from 0 to 60 in record time. At least for me ;)
I really had to hold that driver near and dear though. I followed good advice persistently because I was pulled by my “freeing why” through some strong resistance.
Get that reason crystal clear guys, and you’ll follow Darren’s advice, you’ll free yourself, and your audience and you’ll reach your goals too.
Thanks for sharing Darren!
Why didn’t you backup the old content from the free blog and repost it to BloggingfromParadise?
Thanks Darren! It was nice to go back through all the information… I also started re-reading Problogger book, and feeling ready to take on 2016!
This is so awesome Darren,
I really enjoyed this though i missed out on many of the episodes. I’m going to check those out and probably start all over from day one.
Building a better blog is not a piece of an ice cake, its not easy but is very much achievable if you’re well determined to do it. You must be willing to put down so many things and that may even include some of your friends, i mean the ones that will try to discourage you from doing.
And importantly, you must always take action.
Thanks Darren, really wonderful
I just love your tips . Darren you are really rock. All of your tips are awesome. I am going to take this 31 days build to a better blog challenge. Hope I am going to be a better blogger.
I enjoyed listening to the first 31 days of your podcast. I appreciate the clear way you organize each episode and the straight-forward manner you communicate.
I thought the “useful information content” was very high and felt rewarded after listening to each one. I appreciate that you offer concrete examples, and not just general principles.
Here are some topics I hope you will address in future podcasts:
Forum decorum – behavior/post types/how much promotion
How to write a social media post – What language works and what doesn’t
Where to find readers who care – I want readers deeply interested in my topic, not ones the fly in from social media and fly out again (I jokingly call them ‘seagull readers’)
I hope you continue your podcasts, because I will be listening!
Trying to implement your concept of creating Evergreen content on my blog http://www.bloggecart.com and adding the basis SEO optimization suggestion. Hope in works well in coming months.
Awesome. Although I am not at day 31 yet, I just have found about this, and I am starting myself from day 1. Bookmarking for future reference. Thanks a lot.
Darren you rocks!!!!
