Why December? #31dayblogwritingchallenge

31-dayblog-challenge-1When I would tell people that I plan to blog 31 days in a row in order to kick start my blog, lots of folks say “That’s great.  But WHY is it in December?”.  I know, it sounds crazy, right?  The busiest time of year, crunch time for the holidays, lots of people take time off, and it’s generally just a run-up to getting the year over with. (Especially this year).

But there is a reason I pick this month every year to host the #31DayBlogWritingChallenge, and it’s because if you can blog every day in the craziest, most stressful month of the year, you can kickstart your blog at any time.

I held a lovely webinar yesterday on Better Social Media in 15 Minutes a Day (On Demnad viewing link coming soon) and in it I tell my viewers that blogging is NOT DEAD.  Nope, it’s not.  In fact, it’s going to have a great “comeback” of sorts.  Why do I say this?  Because blogging isn’t dead, it’s the blogs that are.  Bloggers are the ones who stopped blogging, thinking that people only wanted to say things on Social Media.  That’s not entirely true.  So it looks like blogging is dead, but many many blogs, including mine, still continue to post.

So, consider joining our little Blog Challenge by clicking HERE and adding your blog to the roster.  We’d love to see you!
