My Own Personal Challenge to Blog Daily

I see there is another Challenge out there which pushed some Activerain Bloggers to get into the groove again. Since I didnt see the challange initially, I decided that I need to have my own challenge to blog each day.

So, for the next month, I'll accept my own Challenge to sign on and post a story or two. To keep it interesting, I'll be sure to mix it up between business and fun.

Why a blog challenge? Its easy. When I was blogging a long, about a year ago, I was certainly seeing the benefits of blogging. I had Real Estate Agents calling with referrals and clients were finding me online. I have found that Activerain has been HUGE for my business (and still is). I've been able to build some great business relationships, friendships, and added to my client base. In order to maintain and continue to build my business, I'll need to amp up my blogging.

Contrary to what some believe, its not just the business blogs that get attention from clients (however, I am sure that rambling on and on is not the key either). That being said, I am not going to ramble on today, but I did want to let everyone know that I am accepting my challenge because now that holds me accountable. Accountability is the key for me. When Jason Crouch and I started the P90X challenge last year, it was the accountability partner that got me through it. So, now Im relying on my Activerain friends to hold me accountable for blogging on a daily basis. I'm sure no one will send me an email or call me if I don't blog, but the fact that I've put it in writing will hold me accountable.

If you are involved with a current challange and I am not already following your blog, let me know. I'll definitely follow you and add comments. No pressure to subscribe to my blog as I'm going to blog either way :-) One thing is for sure, its not the amount of comments you receive, its the amount of business that blogging brings.

No matter what your challenge is (blogging, business relationships, and/or personal challenges) keep focused and I wish you the all the best. Have a GREAT week and I'll see you in the rain!

I suggested this because I want to share that this is a great challenge within oneself. It's not about the 5,000 bonus points. It's about personality accountability.

I enjoyed this process so much that I created my own private blog to pour my thoughts into it.

Alright John! This is a great idea & I second Loreena above.  I used to love to read your blog posts & wondered why you stopped.....I know, I  know, just like the rest of us, life get's in the way!

Loreena - I didnt even know you would receive 5000 bonus points if you entered that challenge. Pretty cool.

Thanks Kristin. I enjoy blogging but I just got away from making it a habit. I've said 'Im Back' a few times, but just have not stuck with it. So, now we will target a blog each day and see if that gets me back into the habit. :-)

I wish I could be more consistent but I always end up having something getting in the way and i end up tired and ready to be done for the day by the time I go to write. Good luck staying with it man.

Thanks Nate. I was the same way. So, now I want to be active with it and dont want to have any more excuses (even the holidays).

Eileen - I will definitely drop by your blog, as I have for the past few months :-)  Good luck with your challenge.

Robert - Thanks! Figured since I was late to the Challenge Party I could just push myself to complete the challenge. Appreciate the support.

I do blog everyday and I certainly don't always blog about business, you just never know how you are going to connect with someone and why.
