Day 15: Ultimate Blog Challenge – Halfway through the month
This month I’m participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge and Social Media Bootcamp. Today marks the half way mark for me, I have been posting daily and to keep up as best I can. Conveniently enough I’ve had many events that I’ve attended and makes for great blog content making it really easy to write. I definitely haven’t had any writers block issues this month. I’ve met some great people that I’ll continue to network with after these courses. I’m definitely on my blog daily with the Ultimate Blog Challenge, tweeting out my blog posts, posting it on Facebook, and trying to blog hop and comment as much as I can. I just started using an editorial calendar and I have a day dedicated to blog hopping.
Social Media Bootcamp is teaching how to use Facebook and Twitter to the fullest capacity. This course arms you with the basics. It shows you how to gain fans and followers and engage online with your audience. If you’re a small business owner it also shows you how to tweet and make sales for your business. The biggest part of being in social media is to remember is… it’s about quality not quantity! Social Media allows you to network, build relationships and engage regularly. I would recommend scheduling your tasks daily and setting a time limit so you don’t get sucked into the social media abyss, says the Twitterholic that’s online 24/7! I’m looking forward to the rest of these challenges. I’ll post again at the end of the month with a full recap of everything I learned during the Ultimate Blog Challenge and Social Media Bootcamp.
