On October 1, I decided to join my gal Nicole Blades in the 30 Day Writing Challenge but I figured I’d quit by October 10. It’s October 31 and I’ve blogged everyday for 30 days straight, something I’ve never done before.
In my 9 years of blogging, I’ve never posted for 30 days straight. In fact, some weeks, I’d only post twice. But this #30WriteNow challenge changed that. In October, I post 37 times. THIRTY SEVEN! I thought by day 20, I’d be blogging about the white walls in my house but nay. I kept having random things to talk about. It also helps that this blog focuses on pop culture. There is ALWAYS foolery afoot somewhere so that made topics easy to find. ALWAYS.
Furthermore, another reason why I’ve kept myself to 3 times a week blogging for most of the time I’ve been at it is because I thought folks would get sick of my content. Apparently, I was wrong. The more foolery I wrote, the more y’all read. And that made me grin with joy. It means you like me. You REALLY like me. Word to Sally Fields. I wrote on weekends (which I typically never do) and in the mornings and at night and it made no difference. You all read.
And to prove it, my blog’s traffic has doubled in the past month. DOUBLED. That’s soooo dope. Y’all kept reading and then sharing it with others and then before I know it, my site’s pageviews is off the chain (for me, anyway).
So yes, it was an amazing challenge and I’m so glad I did it. I’m tempted to keep it going, now that I know I can. But we shall see.
Thanks for sticking with me and for sharing my posts. You are appreciated.
How’d I do in this 30 day challenge?
