In April, I participated in the A to Z blogging challenge. I knew it would be a stretch, but I gave it a try. I started off with several post drafts and I was doing well for the first week or two, but soon my drafts ran out and I was struggling to keep up. After a few skimpy posts, I just gave up. I didn’t complete the challenge, but I did learn a lot about my blogging and what I must to do to keep things going.
When I started preparing for the challenge, I came up with three basic strategies to help me keep focused. I’ve added to and adjusted my strategies for next year:
1. Prepare posts ahead of time
2. Have a theme to bring topics together
3. Keep posts brief and meaningful
4. Make time to read and comment on other blogs
If you didn’t take part this year, I hope you consider it in 2012!
If you participated in this challenge, what would you do differently next year?
