2017 Blog Jumpstart Challenge: exercise your brain for success!!
Exciting current research verifies that new and varied learning tasks keep the brain active. Just this week, in the New York Times, a complete report about mental acuity gives the facts. Link above ...
Market Reports might be a great place to stretch your skills. Worried about how to present the data? The Challenge offers links to multiple sites with free options for easy graph or chart templates – such as Venngage. Now is YOUR chance to learn about graphs and charts the easy way while you earn BONUS points at the same time!
Dick Greenberg is a go-to person for Market Report examples. Check out his Greeley County Zip Code 80634 or one for Mariana Butte in Loveland. Also check out what Liz and Bill Spear post, such as one about Lebanon, Ohio.
Want people to see your name front and center? Focus on a great post about a Permanent Local Attraction. Every time someone looks for that venue in YOUR niche area, the post you did - hopefully with visuals such as photos or even maps - can bring those potential Clients to YOU. Make yourself the LOCAL EXPERT during the Challenge while you earn BONUS points!
Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland offered posts about the Baltimore Ravens and about Spotlighters Theater in Downtown Baltimore. In Atlanta, a local Blogger's post highlights the Woodruff Arts Center.
Occasional Local Events provide the same Blog magnetism. Martin Luther King Day celebrations occur in many cities and towns. Often the celebrations are repeated each year. Maybe a 5K is a part of the options in your area. Your post could re-appear every year with minimal effort during revision. Here's the link to my post about an MLK event.
How about interviews of LOCAL SHOP OWNERS? Not accustomed to "interviewing" strangers? Again, let's look to Rebecca Gaujot who shares examples with her posts the Front Porch and Robert's Antiques. Your own practice with the two posts for the Ringing & Singing Challenge would lead to comfort with the local interviews. And you may use the “double-dip” BONUS points as a reward for your practice for a Local Interview.
NICHE HOUSING OPTIONS in your area is another 2017 Blog JUMPSTART Challenge option. Check out Hannah Williams post about The Clusters in Bensalem, PA as an example.
