November, 30 Posts in 30 Days, Blogging Challenge

Reblogger Diane M. Phillips

November 30 in 30 Challenge is here! I know I need it! Challenge, a AR Cheerleadercontest, a competition? No not on AR! A Challenge on AR is more of a hand up. Or should I say a hand to help you up?  Up the blogging ladder, up the real estate knowledge ladder,  up the google ranking ladder! It’s a rally around each one of us to remind us to engage with each other and our communities as we should be in a business of relationships. It’s a Win Win!

Participate in in the challenge that will (No guarantees, however, it’s been my experience) result in so much more than points and truly doesn’t end on November 30th ( well, this challenge does, however, your blogging should not). Blogging is important to do for business on a regular consistent manner. AR teaches you how to through ARU ... Activerain University. If that’s not enough, go to the AR facebook page , still not enough ... pick up the phone and ask for help!

Yes! I am a RAVING ACTIVE RAIN FAN!
(that’s a way overdue blog post)

Take part in the November, 30 blogs in 30 days Challenge, it will be worth the effort!

November, 30 Posts in 30 Days, Blogging Challenge 

It's easy to get into a slack mentality as the holiday season approaches.  Why bother working so hard when there are fewer people who need to buy and sell?  Well, this 30 in 30 blogging challenge is going to stop you from thinking that way. 

We all know that what we put out there for marketing today, doesn't pay off immediately.  It means more future business.  So let's not get our New Year off to the wrong start because we did nothing in November.  Let's focus on creating that habit of daily blogging.  We've done it before and we can do it again.

This 30 for 30 challenge has a special twist.  A local event twist.  At least one post per week will need to focus on a local event.  Maybe there's a Toys for Tots gift collection center you want to promote.  A food bank that is collecting canned goods for a Thanksgiving dinner.  Santa is bound to be taking up a seat at the local mall to meet the kids.  Or maybe there's a community event that celebrates the season.  Whatever you do, you'll need one of those localism posts per week.

Here are the 30 for 30 requirements:

Starting November 1st you need to post at least one blog post every day.  

At least one blog post a week needs to focus on a local event.

All content needs to be original.  No jokes or cut and paste emails you've received.

Speechless posts will not count.  You are actually going to have to write.

The posts DO NOT need to have the title of the challenge in them.

The posts DO NOT need to be submitted to any particular group.   

On December 1st, email Kerrie to let her know you've completed the challenge.

As if the motivation for the future business weren't enough, everyone who completes their 30 original posts, one each day, will receive an additional 3,000 points

For anyone who has not participated in a 30 for 30 blogging challenge, I recommend starting a list of topics.  It's inevitable that somewhere in this challenge, your brain will encounter writer's block.  Save some posts as word documents that you can cut and paste on busy days.  That's also another inevitablity in a contest like this.  Be prepared and have fun!

Catherine ~ Good! It's so important, I'm a little upset with myself that I slacked off. What's more important is moving forward. Best wishes on your challenge!

Diane:  Not only does this sound like a great contest... but I REALLY like the rules Chris Ann has laid down.

My favorites sentence in her rules is:  Speechless posts will not count.  You are actually going to have to write.

I love it.

My local event was the Turkey Dinner at the Church nearby! Was yours the place with the cool baked goods?
