Tell me about yourself.
My name is Scott Charleboix.
I’m a retired Master Sergeant (24 years) from the United States Air Force and I’m actively involved in a fraternal organization called the Knights of Columbus.
My hobbies are collecting the new National Park State Quarters and watching reality television shows: especially Survivor, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Hell’s Kitchen, and Shark Tank.
I graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington with a
Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership.
What inspired you to create your blog/business?
My inspiration to create a blog came about as my addiction to Pinterest. Pinterest is a place that I can store my favorite pictures and at the same time have links to draw attention to the blog.
What is a typical day in your life?
A typical day in my life is looking at my to-do list, making at least one pin per day to put into Pinterest, and updating my previous posts to notch up the level of Yoast SEO buttons to green for readability and at least orange for SEO analysis.
How to you stay productive and motivated working virtually?
By trying to write quality blogs and focusing on content rather than quantity. I like to write one blog at least every other day.
How have your friends and family reacted to your project?
They’ve been super supportive.
What has been the scariest part of having a blog and how have you overcome it?
Scariest aspect is am I doing the blog for nothing? From what I’ve read it can take some considerable time to develop a good following. It takes a minimum of three months for the SEO to kick in so use the first three months wisely to hone your skills and practice, practice, practice.
What have you gained from your business up until now?
I have at least received one affiliate: however, I’m not checking it on a regular basis. The time will come that I’ll be able to celebrate when that first check arrives.
What message do you have for students who are starting the challenge now?
In addition to the 30 DBC forum, I would like to invite you to visit my blog where I’ll help offer my support for your blog. My blog is http://www.PinterestArtwork.com/blogs/.
Because sometimes you may know exactly what you want to do; however, you may not know how to do it.
I highly encourage you to drop me a line or fill out a comment so I can help your blog. Here’s my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
How did 30-day Blog Challenge help you?
I went to the bookstore to buy a book about WordPress. Even though I had eagerly been wanting to get a WordPress book, something was holding me back. When I got home, I told my wife that I didn’t buy the book after all. I felt like I got more from the 30-day Blog Challenge that I could have gotten out of a book.
