    Networking with fellow bloggers is often the most important skill to practice and yet so many bloggers don’t start until late.

    During the next 30 days, we want to make it a habit for you that you reach out and forge bonds with other fellow bloggers within our community.

    So go ahead and introduce yourself in the comments below and welcome a few of your fellow challengers.

    Hi all, I am Rowena and l have to reiterate what many of you are saying as l too have no clue what l am doing. It has taken me days just to do day one. We are in lockdown here in NZ for 4 weeks and possibly longer so this is my challenge for lockdown. My friends and l were planning a trip to Europe in a June (not happening now of course) but l had hoped to have a blog about the trip to keep in touch with everyone. I would love to know where everyone is from.

    I’m excited about this new journey. I recently retired from teaching and have shifted my focus from teaching others to write to trying to make myself write on a regular basis. I am very interested in what everyone has in mind for his or her blog. I am creating a farm and family lifestyle blog. At least that’s the goal. I have tried for years to master WordPress. I hope I finally get it down.

    Hi, my name is Ondra Dismukes and I am both excited and a little nervous about this 30-day blog challenge. I am learning to embrace change. I want to develop a blog about the beauty and complexity of language. Nice to “meet” you!

    Hey awesome bloggers! You all are doing fantastic!

    I am Chrystal and have been writing random things for years and this year I’ve decided to kick it up a notch and do it for real and make $$ as a bonus (it doesn’t hurt, right?). The past month I’ve been working on my own website (over on a different site) and published two blog posts onto it the I magically found this 30-day blog challenge thingy-ma-jig when I was researching ‘how to make money blogging’. So viola! I’m here. I’ve been transitioning my two blogs over to WordPress and I’m very happy to be here and learning all this stuff.

    I have a little bit of experience with web design and such from going to school for Graphic Design about five years back. However, I’m excited to learn and to put my skills to the test and figure this all out! It’s all worth it in the end after all.

    And I can’t wait to get to know you, fellow bloggers, a little bit more in the meantime!

Anyone who knows me personally will tell you that I’ve always got a lot to say, which is why I wanted to start blogging and helping other people in my community out. I’m not sure what the future holds and I’m not exactly tech savvy, but I guess I’ll just have to learn along the way.

    Hi, I’m Jessica Croft. My blog is PrismaticJess.com. I started my blog for two reasons.

    The first is that I have always had a knack for English, grammar, and punctuation, but I only recently found the courage to pursue writing. The second is that I am always getting asked for tips and advice on multiple topics, and I decided it was time to share it. A blog seemed like the best of both worlds. I have started setting up my site and writing a few posts, but I am still in the beginning stages. My site is currently set to private mode. I am excited to work through this course and get ready to launch my site live!

    Hi, Cathryn from Canada here! I’ve always wanted to start a blog but never knew what to write about. With quarantine I’ve been bouncing a few ideas around in my head and I hope I can turn one of them into something successful! Originally wanted to do a travel blog, but I guess I’ll have to figure something else out for now!

      Hi Cathryn! Usually our first instinct for the niche is the right one! If travelling is your passion, it would totally work, even if we aren’t able to travel at this moment. Just focus on previous trips or offer tips. There are so many topics you can approach without actually travelling anywhere.

      Hi Cathryn from the vastness of Canada! What part are you from? I’ve crossed Canada 6 times back and forth (East to West, but not South to North). I’m in Quebec City, for the next 9 weeks that is, ’cause I’m moving to the Netherlands on July 13th!
      My blog is set on resilient homes for northern climates: places to thrive in instead of rot in should we be forced to quarantine again.

    Sorry about the gibberish earlier. It was a test. My laptop is a piece lol. Well anyway my name is Darrell but please call me Wayfarer. I’m not exactly new to blogging although I am new to doing it professionally. I’m primarily a story writer/poet/ aspiring novelist and I see blogging as a way to get traction and readers. To be honest I’m a bit worried but, that means I’m going the right way doesn’t it? I haven’t even put up my first post yet. That old college perfectionism keeps popping up. My inner critic. I’m working on him. Mainly making him be quiet so I can get to my real work. <br clear=”all”>

      Hi Wayfarer! I already replied to your Fears thread and I called you Darrell, sorry about that πŸ˜€ That is your first don’t, right there! Perfectionism. We as artists tend to try to achieve perfection. “I will only launch my website when it is perfect” “I will only post this when it’s perfect” and that’s what we are doing wrong. No one expects us to be perfect from the beginning and our quest for perfection is usually holding us back big time. Try and leave perfectionism behind, just try and keep your project moving and evolving πŸ™‚

        Yep. Move forward fearlessly and course correct on the way.
        This attitude is so ANTI what I have learned. So I will kill that guy during these next 30 days. I have already published my page and posted my first blog and am looking forward to sharing it in the market place out there, “dreading” comments and trolls…

    Alright, here we go! Straight up, what attracted me here was the 30 Days of ACTIONABLE step with the DTFW attitude.
    That’s why I’m here. I got challenged to own three online companies by July 13th. The Blog will be my corner stone for a longer term project of designing and constructing resilient homes across Europe and North America, particularly focused in the Northeast of the continent.

    Looking forward to the training, but especially to the establishing of consistent habits.

    Cheers!

        Racquel, do you have Dutch origins by chance? I’m moving there on July 13th!

        I imagined the Blog as a marketing “prequel” if you will, a sort of way to pave the way, convert mindsets slowly but surely, respond to objections, answer questions, until I am set to start producing. The next step parallel to the Blog is an eBook: The 7 Pillars of Resilient Homes, which I will be addressing in greater detail,one Blog at a time.

        What’s your niche/project angle?

I’ll be touching on gaming, philosophy, outdoorsman activities, beard/self-care, and a few other things I’m passionate about. I look forward to seeing what we all can make happen this summer! If you want to follow me on social media I’d love to follow you back!

When I saw the 30 day challenge and started a dialogue with Matt, I realized that this is the time for me to do it. I never knew where to begin, so I am happy to have found a group of experienced bloggers who can guide me on this journey. I am very excited to finally share my life experiences with the world and find my niche. I hope I can make some friends here too and learn from all of you.

    Hi all! My name is Bryanna and I am new to blogging even though I have half-heatedly attempted to start multiple times in the past few years. I finally have a solid vision and can’t wait to get it launched and running! I want to blog about kindness, mental health, and nurturing compassion for others. I am a registered yoga teacher and I really enjoy the feeling of lightness and glowing one can achieve through practice, which can be utilized in everyday life to bring about more peace to oneself and others!

    I thought that this was going to be easy because I used Front Page, Microsoft Word, and Dreamweaver nearly 20 years ago. Unfortunately, a lot has changed and I feel overwhelmed by the terminology and trying to remember the difference between Blue Host and WordPress.

    My name is Scott Charleboix. I’m looking forward to creating a blog site so that I can build up the followers to my Pinterest page and then start making a little extra income for something I already enjoy doing (journaling and Pinterest).

    Hi fellow bloggers, I am excited to start this 30 day blogging challenge. I’ve blogged in the past but ended up deleting it because some co-workers teased me about having a makeup blog (I was in banking at the time), I’m now in Marine but hope to blog about wellness and to basically just have a creative outlet for my thoughts. The opinions of others it what holds me back the most so this is a big step.

    I am also excited to follow along with your individual journey!

Great job at trying again and doing something you love even though you had previous bad experiences with people’s opinions. Trust your judgement and write your thoughts, we can’t wait to read them πŸ™‚

    Hi Everyone! Nice to be a part of this community!

    I started a blog technically in February. It was initiated as a blog to learn and discover what the music industry has to offer. But due to the pandemic, I ran out of opportunities to execute the mission statement so to speak. So now, I’m trying to rediscover the focus for my blog. Plus, I was brand new back in February so I have a lot to learn!

    So excited to be here!

    Hi, everyone! I’m new to blogging, but have written a couple of guest posts in the past – so I guess I sort of get the idea πŸ™‚

    I’m really looking forward to this course to get my own idea – Make Work Suck Less – off the ground. I got into the field of human resources more than a decade ago with the intention of helping organizations create a great employee experience, only to learn that there is a lot about “work” that just sucks (Happy Hours and TGIF wouldn’t exist if it didn’t) and you can’t rely on a business to make you happy. But there are ways that we can maximize our own happiness at work, so I hope to share that information and help people create more positive work experiences and have a little fun doing so.

    Well I have been dilly dallying around with this for more than a year. I had a site back in the late 90’s but it was to promote for my own hobby back then, I had thoughts of doing great things with it but I never followed through. Here I am again some 15 years later with a whole different approach. Here we go!

    Looking forward to making a few connections.

    Hello all!

    I’ve tinkered around with blogging here and there, but always on WordPress.com instead of .org, so this type of β€œreal” blogging is very new to me. Hoping to make a good go of it and have some supplemental income at least from it!

    My blog will focus on helping parents connect with their children through the practical skill and timeless art of knitting. I’ve got a very shaky start and some serious rewriting to do to make my message clear, but am excited to get going on it!

    Happy to meet everyone and blessings in your own journeys!

      Hi Donielle,

      I think this is a really neat idea! I am not a mother yet (I won’t be for a while hopefully lol) but I am someone who enjoys knitting once in a while. I haven’t knit in a while, actually, I definitely need to get back into it!

      It’s hard to describe what I want to write about, haha! I’m hoping this challenge will help me. I plan to mostly talk about my life with my son although I may throw in some things about my daughter or boyfriend. My son has mild autism/MR and is 28 years old. He has a very interesting and funny personality. Along with the fun we have, there are some serious things to consider as I begin to age with an adult child. How I put this all together into a way that is fun, serious and makes sense, I hope to learn some techniques that will at least help me get started.

        I absolutely love this idea! Just like so many other people out there, I don’t know much about autism unfortunately and I love that this will help not only just bring more awareness, but it will also help others as well. I am really excited about your blog, Kristin and I would love to learn more!
