31DBBB: Day 1—2 days late

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.

  1. Hmm, I think that “develop an elevator pitch” challenge would be enough for me to stop blogging or discard the idea of starting a blog.
