November, 30 Posts in 30 Days, Blogging Challenge 

It's easy to get into a slack mentality as the holiday season approaches.  Why bother working so hard when there are fewer people who need to buy and sell?  Well, this 30 in 30 blogging challenge is going to stop you from thinking that way. 

We all know that what we put out there for marketing today, doesn't pay off immediately.  It means more future business.  So let's not get our New Year off to the wrong start because we did nothing in November.  Let's focus on creating that habit of daily blogging.  We've done it before and we can do it again.

This 30 for 30 challenge has a special twist.  A local event twist.  At least one post per week will need to focus on a local event.  Maybe there's a Toys for Tots gift collection center you want to promote.  A food bank that is collecting canned goods for a Thanksgiving dinner.  Santa is bound to be taking up a seat at the local mall to meet the kids.  Or maybe there's a community event that celebrates the season.  Whatever you do, you'll need one of those localism posts per week.

Here are the 30 for 30 requirements:

Starting November 1st you need to post at least one blog post every day.  

At least one blog post a week needs to focus on a local event.

All content needs to be original.  No jokes or cut and paste emails you've received.

Speechless posts will not count.  You are actually going to have to write.

The posts DO NOT need to have the title of the challenge in them.

The posts DO NOT need to be submitted to any particular group.   

On December 1st, email Kerrie to let her know you've completed the challenge.

As if the motivation for the future business weren't enough, everyone who participates will receive an additional 3,000 points. 

For anyone who has not participated in a 30 for 30 blogging challenge, I recommend starting a list of topics.  It's inevitable that somewhere in this challenge, your brain will encounter writer's block.  Save some posts as word documents that you can cut and paste on busy days.  That's also another inevitablity in a contest like this.  Be prepared and have fun!
