2011 December Blogging Challenge - Day 25 - Creating my own blogging challenge!

Mortgage and Lending with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp Louisiana NMLS#2289 Equal Housing Lender NMLS 69996

A great challenge issued by Bryan Robertson to create your own blogging challenge and also some great ideas.  Check it out and let him know you appreciate him!  I have disabled comments so connect with Bryan with comments!

This challenge, like so many others, is designed to drive bloggers to write more.  That's the hard part of blogging, right?  It's hard to make it a routine.  So you sign up for these contests because they require you -- force you -- to blog more than you normally would.  OK, so here's a challenge...


As a personal blogging challenge to myself, I vowed to blog every day this month (even thought the contest didn't require it).  I also vowed to enter every contest.  So, I entered all the contests I could see in the Contests Group and I have blogged every day, except one - I was exhausted and sick, so I gave myself a break.

Here are a few ideas on how to create your own blogging challenge:

  1. Write a review for 6 different businesses in your local market in January
  2. Write a guide to a local neighborhood and include some video - in 1 week or less
  3. Post comments of help and support to one newbie blogger each day for a month
  4. Find 20 bloggers you really admire, subscribe to their blogs, become associates, and comment
  5. Blog on a specific target concept for your local market and optimize it so you get in Position #1 of Google

OK, that's enough ideas for now.  You could create any sort of challenge you want and they can include a wide range of blogging, networking, and local interaction goals you want.  Personally, the best contest is one where you can involve real people to build relationships - not just writing a blog on Activerain.

I'm making this post public so it can be reblogged.  Just so you know, one challenge I'm adding to my list is to grow my subscriber list and subscribe to more blogs.

Merry Christmas!  Enjoy your day and may 2012 be a great year for your business!
