I signed up for Darren Rowse‘s “31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge.” It was supposed to begin on April 1, but got delayed until April 4—by which time I’d forgotten about it until I received Darren’s e-mail Monday morning. And the challenge stumpted me so much that I didn’t write about it. And I was out all day yesterday and didn’t write about it, or about day 2. So here it is, day 3, and I’m already behind. *ack*
Day 1’s challenge was to develop an elevator pitch. At first I didn’t even know what an elevator pitch was. (Yep, that’s how business savvy I am.) Once it was explained, I was at a loss. How do you write an elevator pitch for a personal blog? Should I write an elevator pitch for Sci Fi Chicks? If not that, how should I focus my blog? In the past, I’ve had 3 or 4 ideas that stand out. Do I want to limit myself to one of those? If so, which one? And if I do limit myself, will I be able to follow through?
Should I create a separate blog for each topic? Actually, I’d tried that and was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t do anything. So I cut back to just one, Stream of Conscience. Well, actually there’s 2 of those (hence the II behind this blog’s title). So, do I go with a whole new blog, or continue with this one?
I finally decided to just continue here. If something great pops up in the next 31 29 days, I’ll consider pursuing it. Ok, maybe it’s not a great plan, but it’s a plan.
