Writing Challenge: Write a ‘How I Do It’ Blog Post

Today’s podcast episode is a little bit different – a throwback of sorts to one of the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Podcast challenges.

I think it’s important to offer challenges like this, as it’s very easy to read or listen to what to do, but actually doing it is a totally different thing all together. In fact, absorbing knowledge without putting it into practise is one of the 21 mistakes I see new bloggers make fairly consistently.

So today the challenge to you is to write a “How I do it” blog post. Something about how you do whatever it is you’re good at, to share with your audience. It might be a very simple topic idea, but it is in fact a very valuable way to drive traffic to your blog, and in turn, grow your readership.

In the podcast I discuss the differences between the style of posts you could create, and examples for each – from styling a bed to making $72,000 in eBook sales – and also tips for brainstorming and writing.

You can listen to episode 47 of the ProBlogger podcast: Writing Challenge: Write a ‘How I Do It’ Blog Post here, and access the examples above in the show notes.

    I’m very good at motivating others to keep trying to progress throughout life. No matter the downfalls, because I invite them to hear my trails and tribulations and how I overcame them. When I’m told that I’ve made a difference in someone else’s life. That person has no idea how much of a difference they’ve made in my life, just by giving me the opportunity to tell my story.

    I thank everyone who’s lend me an ear.

  2. Darren, I did this as part of the 31 Day to Build a Better Blog podcast/ebook (I am still going through them slowly but surely).

    It challenged me to write a post (that turned into 3) about the most common question I get.

    It may seem like a very small thing, but it was a huge moment in that this was a huge hurdle (for lots of personal reasons). Thanks Darren!

    I believe it’s vital to offer difficulties like this, as it’s anything but difficult to peruse or listen to what to do, all things considered doing it is an entirely unexpected thing all together.
