Sharing is Caring – 31DBBB edition
I’ve really been enjoying participating in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge, hosted by the SITS girls. It has been an eyeopener in many ways – to the way I see my blog, the way I interact with my audience and my peers, but mostly in how universal the call of blogging seems to be.
I am working in a small group with others from around the world and it has been great to read new blogs and interact with others from different blog niches. Apart from my assigned group I have also found other bloggers in the daily forums and have enjoyed reading posts and discovering blogs that I may not have found otherwise.
In the spirit of sharing and caring, I want to share some of the blogs I have discovered so far. I have found an instant connection with each of them which I hope will extend beyond the 31 days of our current challenge. I hope you find a connection with them too!
She’s Write – is one of the bloggers in my assigned group. A journalist by trade she certainly knows how to write and has a young family so she understands the pressure of being a working mum. Her latest post really resonated with me – I also feel the conflicting desires of wanting to be at home with my children while yearning for the satisfaction of work outside the home.
Mommyhood By The Handful – is a blogger with 6 kids, 2 pets and a family with more than their fair share of disabilities. I don’t know how she does it, but she handles all this plus writing her blog, which I have enjoyed reading very much. She has been writing a bit about the #31DBBB challenge and it is good to know that others are finding keeping up with all the activities as challenging as I am!
InspireU CooCoo – Sheedia is another member of my assigned group and is an aspiring graphic designer with a truly inspiring blog. This being my month of being inspired, I feel it is fate that threw me in the path of her creative and inspiring blog. Check out the quote in her latest post – so, so true!
AmyLaurenJerome – Amy is also a member of my assigned group and is also a mother of 3. She has a well-written, entertaining blog and I am looking forward to reading more. Her latest post is a re-post but it deserves to be discovered by a wider audience – she speaks truth and speaks it from the heart, well worth a read.
eSeek3r.com – Craig rounds out our assigned group and provides a little gender balance to our very lady-dominant group. His blog focuses on leadership, Internet marketing and lifestyle – he is far more prolific and ambitious than I’ll ever be! He recently had his post on 7 best practices from facebook’s marketing guide published on a leading blog in his niche and now has a a weekly guest post there. His blog is a welcome font of wisdom for relative newcomers to blogging like me, so go and check it out.
Well, you know what? I did not think I had accomplished much during this first week of the challenge (I am already behind a few days…) but writing this post has changed my thinking. I might not have lots of posts to show for myself but I have taken in lots of information from leading bloggers and have discovered some really great blogs. I am looking forward to discovering even more as the challenge progresses, hope you enjoy discovering them with me!
