My Thoughts After Writing a Blog Post Every Weekday for a Month

Whew! Today is the last day of my personal challenge of writing a blog post every weekday for a month.

 

I am so proud of how this challenge went.

 

I was consistent and only missed ONE day!

 

Here are some things I learned on this challenge:

When you focus on one thing, others suffer.

As you all know, I own 4 businesses. Well… focusing on this challenge took up a lot of my time and honestly other parts of my business suffered because I had to put so much energy into creating daily content. Not sure if I could do this again unless I had a clear plan but I am grateful for the experience.

It takes hard work to do something consistently.

Chile, being consistent is not for the faint of heart. To create a blog post each day took roughly 2 hours. That’s 38 hours, that I spent writing and creating blog posts this month. Some nights I had to stay up late or wake up early to make sure I was pushing out content. This 2 hours a post doesn’t include if I had to do research or take pictures for the post.

I was right about staying top of mind.

I talk a lot about staying top of mind when it comes to growing your brand and now I’m 100% certain. I noticed that when I consistently wrote blog posts and shared it, I experienced consistent growth on my blog and social media which led me to hitting 10K followers on the gram!

I need to get out more.

I had 6 events scheduled this month and I did this so I knew that 6 days I would blog about the event.

 

I went to none of them.

 

This month made me realize how important it is to go out and meet new people and make friends. I’m such a homebody but it’s so important for me to get out and connect with others. As a entrepreneur it’s easy for me to sit at home and work myself into the ground but I NEED to get out there!

 

So if you’re reading this… invite me somewhere!

 

People care about your story.

I was very transparent this month about in my Failure to Success story. I have been sharing more about my mental health and the reality of being an entrepreneur and I realize that people actually care about MY perspective, MY reality.

 

Who would’ve thought?

 

So these are my thoughts from my challenge!

 

How’d you guys enjoy my month of blogging?

      Of course!! I’m happy to share! 🙂

  3. This was so inspirational. On my blog I have people who send in articles, but this past month I haven’t gotten any new peices and I’ve been focused on getting used to having a day job so for Sept there were no new articles. I’ve been feeling horribly guilty about it. I think I’ll try this challenge. If not every day maybe every other day lol. You’re amazing.

      It’s ok! You create your own challenge. Even if it’s just once a week, by showing up and committing you are winning!

  4. That’s incredible! I’m writing 2 posts a week and even that takes dedication. Do you have a process for writing your blog posts? It takes me much longer than 2 hours to write a post

    1. MrsKayH1 says:

      I completely get it! I write 2-3/week and it’s still very time consuming! My process is pretty consistent. I keep a running list of blog post ideas and when I am feeling creative. I write as much as possible based on my list of topics! I really just sit down and brain dump then I go back and edit my post and schedule it! I used to have a month worth of content written out! Good luck with writing! The more you do it, the less time it will take! If your posts are very research heavy (my posts on shesacreative.com and thesocialsavvyco.com are like this) then those will take much longer but regular lifestyle or opinion posts start to get easier over time!
