November's Cloudburst of You

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

I'm only going to ask one thing of you in November, a challenge yes but only one task.

November's Cloudburst of You

30 Posts in 30 Days

It's been awhile since we had a 30in30, much too long.  You may be asking why November with the holidays fast approaching, Thanksgiving, soup for you, er I mean No Excuses!

If you want 5,000 points, you can have them.  5,000!  Just post a blog a day in November.  If you want to get ahead of the game and postdate your Thanksgiving or Sunday posts, go for it.  As long as you have one posted per day in November you are good to go.

Your 2014 will thank you for the actions you complete now.  Keep that funnel full throughout the end of 2013.  I know you can do this!

There are no word minimums or types of posts we're asking for.  You know if a post is good for your business and beneficial to your followers.  Don't forget to check your Stats.  Remember, consumers don't leave comments but they are reading your stuff.  This is the EASIEST way to organically expand your marketing efforts.

If you need inspiration, check out this 14-page, 500 Keyword list.    

Once you're done, please submit the form below.  Points will be awarded soon after the contest ends.

You can do this!  We believe in you!

I shocked the heck out of me by finishing this one. Never thought I'd make it. It was always on my mind and it taught me a lot.

I made it I did 40 blogs in 30 days and one for each day.  I can't believe it.  Thank you so much for this challenge.

Make them so I dont have to read them 4 times to make sure I didnt miss something "hidden" or buried in the text!


Loved it and looking forward to seeing what changes AR has for this week

This was tough, but having a few posts saved in draft saved me. Thanks for the challenge. The points certainly made it worth the effort.

Thank you for getting me back in my groove! After less than 10 posts in the previous 4 months, I managed to post more than the 30 required! Then I shared 

Do 30 in 30 challenges help? Absolutely and I'm proof!

Thanks for this challenge, I attended NAR in San Francisco and despite the curve balls life threw still got 'er done!  Being able to keep to the "One Thing" Focus for 30 days was awesome!  Hope we get to do this again:-)

I submitted the form and answered true for both questions as to when I started blogging. I will resubmit the form with only the first answer checked off since I now see that you are awarding fewer points for those who started the contest on the second or third of November.

I created my last blog as a draft to post yesterday the 30th, but on my points page it says it posted on 11/29, even though when you look at the post itself it says that it posted on the 30th. There is something wrong with the program to post a draft on a later date. I appreciate your prior comments that you will take this into consideration when awarding points.

Kerrie, I started the contest blogging every day, and wrote drafts that did not publish when they should have...anyways I just got so irritated with the draft posts and making me miss my deadlines. I wrote 25 posts and couldn't figure out what the heck was going on.  Hopefully all will be fixed with the new changes.

Less points for starting on November 2nd even if I posted two posts that day?  SERIOUSLY????

Five featured posts out of the 30 in 30 contest - I'd say that's a fair amount of quality blogging.

I did it,,,,Kinda?  I wrote a blog a day but one of them I put to post later in the day and it didn't work so it stayed as a draft but I kept going.  The old Kim would have quit and not kept up with the blogging a day but after 16 days into it I had to keep going.  :)  Thanks for the push to get back into blogging.
