What I Learned From Two Weeks of Doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge
Here we are two weeks into the blogging challenge. Time goes by so fast. In the first week, I was without a computer for a couple of days. I did manage to catch-up with the challenge. I have learned so much from doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge.
1. I learned that I blog or write for myself
2. If, I want to make money with my blog I need to do things differently
3. I need to write much more than what I do
4. I need to have detailed plan for my blogging
I learned I Blog for Myself Doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge
Learning that I blog for myself during the Ultimate Blog Challenge is nothing new. We all blog for ourselves. We love to write, and we want to share what we love to do with other. What I did realize, is that if I want to make money with my blogs, I have to look at them a little bit differently.
I have always had a layback look at blogging. While, there is nothing wrong with having a laidback view of blogging. I am not going to make any money doing things this way. If, want to make money with my blog; I am going to have to do things differently.
I Learned From the Ultimate Blog Challenge That I Need to thing Differently
I love to write; that is why I started blogging in the first place. I was writing on many different writing sites. These writing sites were disappearing like hotcakes. They were all going out of business. Many other writers that I know starting their blogs because of this. I jumped right in and decided to start blogging myself.
I have also written because I enjoy writing. Making money from my blog would be nice, but it did not matter if I made money or not. Well, that wasn't entirely true. I was hoping that I would make money with my blogs. I never thought of looking at my blogs as a business.
I learned I Need to Write More From the Ultimate Blog Challenge
I only post to my blogs when I feel like it. I need to a plan for any of my blogs. I have read up a lot on affiliate marketing, business planning, and advertising or promoting.
Doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge in only weeks I have gotten as many views to this blog as it has taken in six months of working on the other blogs. On of the reasons for that is because I have been posting here every day.
I Learned From Doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge that I Need to have a Plan for My Blog
I have learned from doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge that I need to have a detailed plan for my blogs. There is no way that I will even stop writing for fun. Writing is just a part of my soul.
I have realized, I want to set up, my main blog differently. I want to make up a detailed plan for the Spiritual Mystic. I also want to do a lot more posting there. I will start off by looking at the Spiritual Mystic blog more as a business.
I have learned a lot so far from doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge, and it is only half over. I am sure that I will pick up a lot more tips and great advice from other bloggers on how to make my blogs much better. Have you learned anything from doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge?
