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?
