The fall writing season is just around the corner. Part of this exciting time of year for bloggers includes writing a 31-day series. Every year thousands of bloggers gather and post new content on their blogs each day for a whole month. There are Facebook groups where they can network, Pinterest boards where they can share their latest posts, and lasting friendships are formed.
For new bloggers this is an exciting time to jump in and tackle a tough challenge. For seasoned bloggers it’s a time to push forward with content for a course or a book. The process is exciting and difficult at the same time but the rewards are immense.
Deciding to participate in a 31-day series will stretch even the most practiced writers. If you decide to participate you’ll need to choose the right topic and then do the behind-the-scenes work needed to get ready for the challenge. There are buttons to create, Pinterest boards to set up, graphic templates to make, and so much more. Where do you start?
I can help. As someone who has participated in several 31-day writing challenges I have watched as the frenzy starts to build in the month prior to any series. Bloggers are excited and want to get their content in front of as many eyes as possible. It’s fun to see the excitement grow.
But then first-time participants learn about all the extra preparations they should have been doing prior to starting the challenge and they end up staying up all night, struggling with new programs, trying to figure out pixel sizes, and how to create pdfs.
Well, this year there is no need to struggle. I’ve put together a simple course to walk you through everything you need to know to be a smashing success. This self-paced course will help you choose the right topic, create a landing page, design an eye-catching button, set up a Pinterest board, make sure your email list is ready to go, design a FREEBIE and so much more.
If you have attempted a series in the past but failed it’s time for you to take the steps needed to be a success this year. You can cruise through all 31 days by doing the behind-the-scenes work ahead of time. This course will help you plan out each element and then get them done with step-by-step instructions.
By the end of this course you will have:
- A topic
- Working titles for 31 posts
- A basic outline for 31 posts
- Hints for getting an email campaign designed and ready to go on MailChimp
- A FREEBIE for new readers
- Two buttons – one for the link up and one for your blog
- Pinterest, Twitter, & Facebook templates
- A watermark for all of your graphics.
- A Pinterest board on which to publish your daily posts
- An updated About page
- An index page for your daily posts
Whether you plan to write your posts ahead of time or on the fly each day you can take care of the extra details ahead of time and be on your way to finishing the race strong.
So why not get started today? You can purchase the course and then work at your own pace so that by the time the challenge starts you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.
Don’t let the little details snag you up. Instead, plan ahead. You’ll gain new followers, build your email list, meet other like-minded bloggers, and accomplish your goal of completing the challenge.
Are you ready to be a success?
Remember, the point of a 31-day series is to improve your writing skills. Don’t get bogged down with the prep work. Do it ahead of time and spend the rest of your time writing and connecting with your readers.
