Unofficial ActiveRain Blogging Report - May 2011…

May Blogging Figures ~ ActiveRainWow! What a month. This month we had three major contests/challenges come to a close. There was the first annual ActiveRain PhotoBloggers Group, The May 31 Day Challenge, and the ActiveRain Collage Challenge all geared towards incentivising members to do what is good for business - BLOG.

The numbers speak for themselves, 14 - 2,000+ post days with the low being 1,097 posts on Sunday May 8 which was Mothers Day. Quite understandable.

So my 2¢ question for the day: do contests / competiton  motivate you or the membership? What would really, really motivate you to blog every day without fail? I would really like to get your input. 

This month, the Management has put out another challenge to members, the June Mobile Marketing Challenge. You will be given 2,000 ActiveRain Points just for entering and the opportunity to win some cool prizes. I wouldn't mind having a cool ActiveRain Tee. This really looks to be a fun contest and get those who are not currently using QR codes to do so.

So C'mon, Shoot, Write, Blog - It does a business good...

Those daily challenges are tough--especially if you like to write content-oriented posts with lots of hyperlinks and things. I've tried them a few times and they really begin to take away from my human face-to-face time.

I really appreciate the contests...I try to faithfully blog everyday, if I miss I make it up on the weekends. I'm working hard to 100K and anyway i can go for extra points motivates me greatly. So, bring on the motivation - just not sure I have time for the Kodak QR challenge...I'm thinking.

Some of the contests I love.  They force you out of your comfort zone and get you to try something new.  Some are just too time cosuming to make it worth your while.  All of them serve to get you to blog more and to blog about things you might not otherwise think of writing about!  Now, share with us how you get those stats!
