31 Days to Building a Better Blog is a self-paced course according to the introduction. It states you can go as fast or as slow as you want. I’m betting that most people go slow and take some time complete, but I’m confident, the wiser choice would be to go fast.
Regardless, I’ve opted for the path that most people take, having only completed Day 1 and Day 2 in seven days. Even though I’ve dragged my feet, both lessons have been very productive.
The second lesson has tremendous potential to create revenue from it. It’s a different style blog post that shouldn’t be used all the time but is appropriate every so often. The idea behind it is not revenue driven. It is designed to encourage traffic, although I wrote it in a way to be revenue driven.
The first day focused on an important part of the foundation to any business. That was a great lesson, even though I have practiced that lesson many times before. Still, I hadn’t used it in my blog.
Both lessons have been very straight forward and well defined. You will benefit from them, no matter where you are at in the process of building your blog.
After completing two lessons in 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, I feel as if I have gotten plenty of value and I have made a worthwhile purchase.
The process has done more than it promised to do. It has drawn attention to how distracted I become by shinny objects. It is extremely important that we stay focused, and I haven’t done a good job of that lately.
I know that this wasn’t part of the plan, but having a course like this helps to draw attention to weaknesses in the plan. It’s simple, structured and drives home that it shouldn’t be tough for anyone to complete.
On to Day 3 of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog!
