Hi friends! It’s been some time, right?
Well, I have decided, after 9 years, to retire the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge.
Before you cry about it, let me tell you what I have noticed over 9 years of running this challenge:
First, people often get gung ho to sign up, and then start off blogging strong. Then by mid-month, they have stopped and are back to their old selves.
Second, 31 Days of posting isn’t enough to build a habit. In later years I made a prompt and everything, giving people something to write about. It never stuck.
The reason for this is because the 31 Day challenge isn’t enough to spur people into blogging more. Just like Instagram challenges never really get you posting more. Once your “obligation” to the challenge is over, you either love or hate the process. That’s not a healthy way to connect to your business.
Instead, I have decided to help people form better relationships with their business tasks over on my Patreon. You can sign up for it here: http://patreon.com/muppindotcom
The 31 Day Challenge was a fun ride while it lasted. I connected to many people, who now have quilt or sewing businesses of their own that grew out of their blogs. I’m very grateful for those connections, and it’s time now to form healthy relationships with our online content.
