Why I joined a 30 day blog challenge ?

Ever since I stumbled across the world of blogging in 2010/2011, I have spent maybe a million hours (maybe I am lying here) online reading blogs.Each blog has given me information of sorts from how to be a better blogger to product reviews.Intially I was afraid I would run out of things to write.
And then I discovered that one could sign up to various blog challenges and recieve a topic to write about each day.It worked for a few days but they felt like such tasks because I had to write about a topic I was given.So eventually I gave up the blog challenges and just posted when I had the inspiration.

But things changed when I came across a post shared by someone on Facebook about Sark eMedia.Who or what are thet you ask? Sark eMedia is an online media company that is run by the dynamic and very supportive Sarah and Kevin Arrow a husband and wife duo.This couple are UK based and offer FREE online courses to help your improve your blogging and in turn generate money.Their website offers various tools to help one on their blogging journey.I was instantly drawn to the 30 day challenge which required you to blog everyday and share your posts in the group.

So why did I sign up ?
1)I wanted to fall in love with my blog all over again.
2)I wanted to learn more about the world of blogging.
3)I wanted to discover other blogs from around the world.
4)I wanted to become part of another blogging community.
5)Most importantly I wanted to be able to blog daily without it seeming to be a chore but my passion.
Once I signed up on the website.I was sent a welcome email which gave me direction as to how it would work.I was to recieve an email each morning at 6am and I had to read it and act on it.Each daily email included valuable tips on how to write an About Me page, How to pick the perfect blog title and so much more.
 
Once my post for the day was ready, I needed to share it in the group.The group is rather awesome as it has bloggers from around the world each with such different blogs.Bloggers are encouraged to share posts, read posts and comment on blogs.I also found that some bloggers had done this challenge several times but still continued as they had fallen in love with blogging/writing.As you are not given a specific topic to blog about each blogger writes different pieces that fits in with their specific blog.I also noticed that some bloggers had missed days but were supported to continue writing when they could.

  1. Very interesting, blog challenges or any daily challenges always seem so daunting because you have the pressure of having to do a task that sometimes you might not be able to complete. I would really like to take up a challenge though to see how far I can push myself and learn more. Thank you for sharing this, it helps me understand a bit more about blogging and I can make use of the website too. Will let you know when I start a challenge!
