If you search the web, there is literally hundreds of pages of information out there on how to boost your page views and grow your social media followers. But who has time to sift through all the suggestions and figure out what really works?
As a mom to two very active kids, I know I sure don’t. Normally, by the end of the day, when they are finally asleep, I barely have energy to type up a new post. I sure don’t want to stay up all night trying to figure out SEO and all that social media stuff.
That is one reason I was so happy to discover Boost Your Blog in 100 Days (#BB100).
These five, fabulous bloggers have gone to conferences, grown their blogs, and want to share what they have learned.
Why 100 Days?
Thaleia of Something 2 Offer explains: “Well, to be honest I am a very, very busy mom of 4 children 11 years and under. I do not have extra time to spend laboring over by blog and Social Media. I want results and habits that can transform the limited time I have into something incredible. Spreading out 10 challenges over 10 days each just sounds better to me. Spending just 10-15 minutes a day versus an hour or two makes more sense to me. Easing into each new challenge should help create a habit a little easier. This will also give you a better understanding of why a particular challenge should be done daily or weekly and how it has helped you.”
10-15 minutes a day is something I can do. And being able to ease into each new challenge, not having to have it all figured out in one day? Perfect! Because, let’s face it, sometimes it takes a couple days for things to really “click.”
Great! Anyone with a blog CAN participate. You may do one or all 10 challenges at your own pace or join in daily!
