Last, but certainly not least, today's prompt given to us by Brave Love is to simply have a farewell coffee date to take a moment and share how the Blogtember Challenge has gone. Much obliged, I poured myself a large cup of coffee with pumpkin spice creamer and spilled my thoughts.
As a newcomer to the blogging world, I took this challenge as a way to increase my readership and strengthen my writing skills. I had only been blogging two weeks prior and jumped in head first, taking on the task to blog each and every day for 30 days.
I would like to share a few things I have learned over the last month:
- When you blog every day, plan ahead and write your post the day before
- Even if you write your post the day before, allot enough time to actually publish your post. I learned there is much more that goes into publishing a good blog post than just writing the content.
- Take the time to reply to each comment if you can possibly help it. I remember when I started following blogs, I would comment on posts with praise or questions and sometimes never hear back from the writer. I promised to always reply to comments from my own readers. I have to admit, I missed a few along the way but practice makes perfect!
Thank you all for following me throughout the Blogtember Challenge! I hope you all will continue to follow along my adventures in life to see what exciting things God has in store for me!
