30 Days of Content – A Challenge to Rapidly Transform Your Blog

A simple path to unlocking your inner creative genius and getting your blog noticed in 30 days or less — even if you are not a writer.

You decided to start a blog for a reason…

Think about all the ideas, thoughts, lessons, and stories you have learned along your journey in life.

More importantly, think about all of the people across the globe who are going online and eagerly searching. Searching for information to solve a problem or to find a story that they can relate to.

That one person is out there in the world who after consuming your content, you will profoundly impact their life. But, since the content you intended to write is still just an idea in your head or laying in a notebook somewhere, they end up settling.

Is YOUR potential audience settling for the next best thing?

Look, I understand everything that holds people back from publishing content online. I’ve experienced it all myself…

  • I don’t have the time to write content.
  • What are people going to say about me?
  • Blogging is too difficult to understand.
  • I don’t know what to write about.
  • Where do I even start?

But, what if there was a way to remove everything that standing between you and your expression of words and content and tap into your true creativity?

Bloggers often get caught up in comparisons to what everyone else is doing, what theme or plugins use, or how they are going to make money from all of this.

It’s not that these things aren’t important, they are just not the most important thing.

We want to zero in on the ONE THING that is going to make the biggest impact.

So recently, I asked myself how I could help the community at LearnToBlog.com (and myself) overcome everything that is blocking their creativity and develop a habitual content routine.

A content routine that not only includes writing for ourselves but actually publishing it for the world to consume.

Completely transforming blogging into something that “I get to do” versus something that “I have to do”.

The answer was staring me right in the face…

A painter paints. A sculptor sculpts. A writer writes.

Blogging is art. Your art. Your expression.

If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends), “Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist?” chances are you are. The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death.

–Stephen Pressfield (the War of Art)

The only way we can win the creative battles is to create our way through them. To create every day until we strengthen that muscle.

This sparked an idea…

Starting Tuesday, November 17th 2015, I am initiating a global challenge that will ignite your blog and creative genius so that you end 2015 with a bang.

It’s called the 30-Days of Content Challenge and the goal is simple:

To guide you in publishing one piece of content, EVERYDAY, for 30 days.

Ambitious? Absolutely!

Drastic changes require drastic measures.

By making this a daily practice, we stop putting it off for the future and we learn how to produce more impactful content in a shorter amount of time.

Like working out, or eating healthy, I know how difficult it can be to create a new habit. Which is why we’ve set this up so that you can have the best chance to succeed.

Each day as part of your routine, you will write and publish ONE piece of content. It could be for your blog or a guest blog. It can be 100 words or 1,000 words.

How it looks it NOT important.

By taking the pressure off of yourself of needing your blog posts to fit in a certain box, you free yourself. Put yourself in an inspiring environment, and just write. Let it take shape.

Day after day you will find your writing efficiency begin to rise.

What is important is you creating a new habit and you to falling in love with the creative process, not getting caught up in the editing, optimization, or marketing of your posts (that can come later).

We’ll celebrate your success with you by allowing you to link your posts to our private community so that people can see the works of art you created and give feedback. We will collect some of the best content to feature in the LearnToBlog network of 90k subscribers.

Here’s what happens when you accept the challenge:

  1. Fill out your registration form following the instructions on this page
  2. You will be invited to a private Facebook group of other passionate entrepreneurs and difference makers
  3. Each day you will post a link to your daily blog post to the group (that’s how we know you are doing it)
  4. Periodically we will email you expert tips that will aid in your content creation
  5. BONUS: LearnToBlog will run a series of surprise contests throughout the challenge that you can win simply by creating your daily content

A fair warning to you…

This is NOT going to be easy. And this might sting a little bit, but I do NOT want you to join the challenge if you know you are not committed to full participation.

It’s going to be hard and you may even want to quit.

But, just imagine standing at the finish line with a stockpile of content true to who you are that makes your and your mission discoverable online and attracts your dream customer while you sleep.

Think about all the people you can help…

Rules of the Challenge…

  • The challenge beings Tuesday, November 17th and ends December 17th, 2015
  • The contest is 100% FREE for you to join
  • Publish one blog post per day
  • There are no length requirements for your posts — do what feels right to you
  • Posts can be on your blog or guest posts
  • If you miss a day, keep going and try to make up for it later on

Frequently Asked Questions

[accordion_item title=”Can I use any blogging platform?”]Yes, you can use any blogging platform (WordPress, Blogger, Typepad, etc.)[/accordion_item] [accordion_item title=”What if I don’t have a blog?”]If you do not have a blog, you can set one up quickly using WordPress. We are also extending our free WordPress blog setup service for people who don’t have a blog online. Just let me know in the registration form that you do not have a blog and we can help you set this up.[/accordion_item] [accordion_item title=”Yeah, but won’t I be sacrificing quality for quantity?”]High-quality content does not mean something has to take a ton of time. It’s about efficiency. And letting go of the image of having to be perfect and editing and re-editing your posts.[/accordion_item]

Everything great begins with taking the first step…

My hope is that this simple challenge can help spark something great within you.

By then end of the challenge, you will have a stockpile of content that you can use to market your mission and make yourself discoverable online (if you are not already doing this).

You can get validation on your thoughts and ideas. You can use this to build trust with your prospective audience or as assets you create for your email autoresponder.

Maybe this is the start of a book or even a paid product. Once you have content, you can reuse it whatever way you would like. The possibilities are endless, which is why I hope you take action and join me on this journey.

The hardest part is just getting started and once you have started to maintain that momentum going forward.

This will force you to operate at your highest level and prove to yourself what you are capable of. One post per day is quite a bit of content.

But, once this challenge is over, you will look back and be able to say “Yes, I did that”.

  • Michelle

    I’m in! While I have a domain, I do not have anything including a blog on it. The topic(s) that I bring to the table is wellness for families with special needs children – in focus specifically Autism Spectrum Disorder (including Aspergers, ADHD, Social Communication Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder).

    • Awesome so glad to have you on board Michelle!

  • 7 Days to go and we have 44 people who have joined! This is exciting 🙂

  • Tara Felder

    I have three big projects I’m juggling and I did not plan to put my blog on the front burner at this time– but HEY! — who can resist this challenge! This will be the greatest Time Management challenge I will have ever attempted (and I’ve bit off some massively huge challenges in my past!) But whatever! Count me IN!

  • JC Rowe

    I’ve been putting my blog off for a while. This challenge is just what I needed to hold me accountable.

  • Just passed 70 people registered 🙂

  • Bradly, may I use a new blog that just went public a month ago – it needs content? 🙂

    • Absolutely. This challenge is about the content vs. the aesthetics or functionality of your site. That can all come later. 🙂

  • 110 registered!

  • Katherine Merritt

    Ok Bradley, I’ve been wanting to start a blog for awhile now and keep letting my fears stop me. This may be the kick in the a** I need to get out of my own way. I don’t have a blog set up at all yet. Nor have I written any blogs, never mind write one per day. My topics would be about health and wellness, self-care and living life. Is this challenge too ahead of where I am to join? Thanks for the kick in the butt to help us step up!

    • Heck no! You are in a perfect place. Everyone has to start somewhere. Rome was not built in a day. Take one good day and build on it. Gather momentum. This is a great starting point for you.

  • Marianna

    I’m in. Topics will center around grandchildren/grandparents and lessons learned on the journey. (Secondary blogs for our ministry in Ukraine and life in general…am I crazy?!)

    • Yes you are crazy and you are in the right place. 😉 Thanks for sharing

  • Alana Marie

    I write stories about my “Return from ROCK-BOTTOM” I once weighed 528 pounds, owned a few nightclubs, where I drank and partied way tooooo much! I lost my house, my partner, my car and one of my businesses…oh I am also a lesbian.Talk about having all odds against me! I realized the reality of my mortality when I fell in my driveway during a winter snow storm, drunk and weighing 500 pounds and had to lay there because I could not get up …so when you tell me about how your situation seems hopeless…I am here to tell you that YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I did it! I lost 250 pounds (so far) have been alcohol free for almost 4 years, found my soulmate, published 2 books and a blog, started a membership website, I co-host a cable tv show and I have started a public speaking career. It all began here with my joining LEARN TO BLOG just a short year ago! I am excited to accept this Blogging challenge! Let’s get to it!

    • Sandy Brown Jensen

      Alana,
      You’re already inspiring me! I look forward to following your blog. See you on Facebok!

      • Alana Marie

        Thank you Sandy! And I will read yours! <3

    • Thrilled to have you on board. Your story is so inspiring. And I still get to interview you about it. I’ll reach out soon after the challenge begins 🙂

      • Alana Marie

        Happy to be here Bradley!

  • Love. No time like now. If you made a purchase and need support you can reach out to Jeff at [email protected]. Glad you are on board.

  • Nancy Schlegel

    Bradley, I’m in.
    I am in the process of rebranding my site so this challenge comes at the perfect time. I am trying to reach out to women who find themselves (willingly or not), in a caregiver role and I will be blogging about the importance of self-love, self-care, self-forgiveness and self- reflection. I am hoping to grow this site and this message into a successful virtual business and create an international movement.
    I have been writing one blog post every month since January, but right now, my posts are more like online journal entries. I know this challenge and this community will be inspiring and keep me on track with my message. Thank you for sharing your genius with us.

    • Great to have you on board. These are the types of messages that are important in helping others grow. This challenge will definitely help you hone in on your message. Look forward to see what comes of it for you.

  • Jill

    I’m in! My topics center around my mission to help one million women worldwide turn their setback into their comeback and their mess into their success using writing as a tool for healing and ultimately becoming bestselling authors. Subtopics include love and bouncing back from divorce.

    • Ohhh love it. Let’s gooooo! Glad you are in.

  • Summer James

    Im in! I’ve always wanted to try blogging. I am recently separated with divorce in the future, raising my 2 youngest boys(oldest doesn’t live at home), trying to get into RN program to finish my last year, and starting to change my eating habits to Trim Healthy Mama to lose weight. All of these things are things I want to talk about in hopes for encourement for myself and the women of the world who need the same!

    • I think expressing yourself is a great place to start. Welcome to the challenge.

  • Liam Williams

    I’m in! I built my blog a while ago but I’ve not created any original content. A mixture of self doubt and procrastination have meant that it’s currently a wasted resource. This challenge looks like it’s exactly what I need. I’ll be writing about fitness and martial arts.

    • Perfect, glad we could provide the charge you needed. Let’s do it!

  • minagelina

    I’m in. I have a child who is dually diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Autism. I want to reach others in my situation or in situations where they don’t know what is going on with their kids to let them know that they are being heard and that there is still help for them. I want to begin with how I knew something else besides DS was going on and how I began to heal her even without a diagnosis. So I want to bring hope.

    • Love this. Thank you for sharing. I am sure there are many that need to hear your story.

  • Walt Goodin

    Walt here

    To Bradley

    OK Bradley, as you can see, my name is Walt.

    I’m a member of the “over the hill gang” being in my 60’s.

    I have already attempted to get Blog started. Web address of http://www.oldisok.com. My idea was/is trying to show all of us the “older folk” wanting to find online ways to make a small income (or large) or things they can do or just get involved in for knowledge, entertainment, or information.

    If you look at my site, you’ll see I started out hot and heavy. Blam! It’s like I hit a wall for what kind and where to get content. For this reason I am hoping to gain the knowledge needed to get this BLOG going as well as the assistance to be a knowledgeable person concerning my credibility and presence online.
    Thanks,
    Walt
    [email protected] http://www.oldisok.com

    • Awesome nice to meet you Walt. Hopefully this challenge gives you the spark you are looking for.

  • Tiffanie Paige

    I’m Tiffanie. I have two wordpress sites, that I do not know what to do with them. I am a firefighter/paramedic and fitness/health coach. Mother of a 13 year old boy and wife to a 39 year old boy (LOL). I am walking contradiction, one day I am cool an confident and have 1000s of ideas and ways to help people. The next day (or hour) self doubt and not feeling like anyone cares to hear my stories creeps in…..As you can imagine I have a hard time zeroing in on specific topics. I love talking about food and fitness, but I like my beer and wing Friday nights too. The depths of despair an addict can go to just before I save their life and the annoyance that is a drama queen calling me for a stubbed toe (at 330am). Loving my son and husband dearly and wishing I could be on a private island away from everyone.

    If you can get me straighten out you will deserve a noble prize for cooling down a hot mess. HA!

    • Kristin White

      Tiffanie, my name is Kristin, and just from this one paragraph, I can tell you that I want to read EVERYTHING you write about, health and fitness, wings and beer, saving addicts, raising your “boys”. Just write WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR MIND IN THAT MOMENT. It is very clear that you have an authentic and very unique voice.
      And that is ALL THAT IS NEEDED.
      Good luck with the challenge.

    • Welcome aboard. This will be a great time to experiment with new things!

  • Kristin White

    Looking forward to this challenge!

  • I’m in! I will give it a try! I’m a 25 year real estate industry veteran starting all over again in a different state! Trying to work full time and living with a husband on disability with Parkinsons and caregiver to my brother living with us with cancer. So my blogs will be focused towards the real estate market and the trials of being a caregiver. I have a blog on my RE/MAX website. Should I use that or start a new blog?

    • Welcome Amy! Whatever is the least resistance. You can always switch gears mid challenge. Starting is the most important part. Maybe get a new one up quick or use our free blog setup service in the sidebar. Look forward to hearing your message

  • Fancy Ruff-Wagner

    I have a website on Weebly. Although it has the capability to add a blog, I haven’t started my blog yet as I figured out I should move to WP first because any blog posts on Weebly are not saveable and moveable due to not being self-hosted. Is there a way to set up my blog on WP and then integrate it with my website once I move it to WP?

    • Start the challenge there and you can move if you want after you have started. Don’t let anything get in your way from starting.

  • Kimberly Pitts

    I’m in joining today! Not sure what I am going to blog about.mGoing to let my heart / intuition lead me.

I have over 270 posts on my current blog, which was rated in the Top 100 Life Coaching Blogs for the past two years, even though I focus more on career-related topics, leadership, workplace behaviors, and overall motivation. Looking forward to the ‘push’ and to see the insights and expertise of others!

          Thanks again!

    I’m in! I am a leadership consultant and coach. I started my blog in 2009 and took almost 3 years off and restarted in September writing twice a week. I blog on leadership and wellness with a holistic approach. 30 entries in 30 days – wow! Excited and terrified – all at the same time!

    • Love it thanks for your honesty.

      • Susan Shaner

        I just found this note…as I do not use my gmail mail and this surfaced there. I’m having trouble posting photos and any media to my blog. How do I do this?

  • sdinsch

    Eek. I signed up and I’m super nervous! I am so not good at expressing myself in words.

  • Jami Midcap Kirkbride

    I just joined the logging challenge and am scared! I stink at blogging and know I need the help!! I am a licensed professional counselor, speaker, and author. I have a blog to help encourage, educate, and equip parents in parenting with personalities. I also use this blog to market my book The You Zoo! I could really use some help! I never received the email mentioned though, so I’m not sure I am really registered! 🙂 Thanks!

    • Hope you got in! Pulling registration down now 🙂

  • Sheryl McCrary

    There’s such an avalanche of information being written daily on everything marketing that, for the longest time, I thought, “What could I possibly contribute to this subject that hasn’t already been said.” But I’m looking for more work in this area and find I have a knack for speaking to a certain business niche. I hope to clarify what that niche is and clarify my own strengths and approach to the subject.

    • Your own story will be powerful to read. This topic you mentioned is a great place to start.

  • Wendy Bertello

    I have a blog and have been blogging for about 5 years but have recently begun losing my mojo…..I’m sure I’ll get some motivation with the accountability this challenge will provide Already keen!

    • Hey did you register in time for the challenge?

      • Wendy Bertello

        I did, because I got the link to share it, which I did, and the email, but didn’t get one on the starting day??? Maybe some ghosts in the system!!! Funny that it happens to me….I’m sure I’m jinxed! LOL
