I’ve had a change of heart over the year long blogging challenge. Why? Is it too hard? No not at all and I have learnt a lot along the way. My issue currently is I have got out of it what I wanted to get out of it. I have committed to a regular writing and I am learning which content attracts more attention than others.
But it isn’t only that. Like tonight I am starting to write this blog at 10:50pm I haven’t considered what I wanted to write about it is just a free flowing write about the challenge at hand. I feel like the value of content I can add with this briefly considered topic and 1 hour to produce something meaningful isn’t doing anyone any good.
I still consider my first post one of my best ones and that’s because I spend a considerable amount of time on that one before it was published.
I am changing my daily writing challenge from a year long challenge to a 100 day challenge and then the blog will revert back to a free writing when I feel necessary providing higher quality content and have more time to work on what I want to work on next, content promotion!
It’s what I am lacking writing these blogs, by the time I publish these I have no time to promote them and the quality of the content doesn’t lend itself to promoting itself. There is a lot of reach out work and networking behind sending a post viral with high quality traffic.
When launching my next blog for Enter Comps it is blatantly obvious to me now that the publish and pray approach to driving traffic to any website doesn’t work. There is an element of search engine optimization (SEO) and while it is important I feel it benefits sites that are already receiving some form of traffic.
So that’s tonight’s blog in a nut shell
The Challenge is changing to 100 days
Content promotion is just as important if not more important for driving traffic to a website
If you’re not going to provide high quality content then don’t expect a large following
