Client attraction. Business growth. Pretty profits.
Yes. Yes. Yes, I KNOW!
The Ultimate Blogging Challenge (April 2012 round) started two days ago and I totally missed the start. Despite planning and best intentions April 1st went flying by in a blink.
If you’ve been reading the blog over the past fortnight you’ll know that I attended the Digital Parents Conference and live blogged it last week.
Little did I know how much that would take out of me.
Almost 4,000 words in 3 hours 15 minutes while using an iPad for the first time is exhausting.
So now I’ve rested a little I’d love to share some photos and links for the awesome bloggers I met before telling you more of my plans for this Ultimate Blogging Challenge.
I met Rachel of Because I Said So and Sarah from Dear Baby G at the #DPCON12 drinks the night before the main event. Both were genuinely lovely and very intelligent ladies!
Lani (Missy Boo) and Tania were great fun to get to know at the Melbourne Wine Room. Thanks ladies for a great night!
Georgia from Parental Parody spoke during the My Blog, My Story session. For someone who was so nervous her presentation was hilarious. Just as she hoped.
What can I say about Marissa of Beautifully Organised? What a champ! Not only was she a great buddy, she willingly volunteered to appear in my first video post. Anyone doing that deserves a medal!
I finally built up the courage to say hello to Darren, the legend behind Problogger and an online idol of mine. At the Problogger event last year Darren and I were the first to arrive and despite having half an hour with the two of us waiting before anyone else got there the most I managed was a terrified hello.
Not this time!
I can reveal that the 2012 Problogger event tickets are expected to go on sale next week and the international guest will be none other than Chris Guillebeau from The Art of Non-Comformity. Don’t buy all the tickets until I have mine!
Ultimate Blogging Challenge Plans
So I’m super excited to report I will be taking part in my second Ultimate Blogging Challenge this month. It requires that I post every day during April.
Yes, it’s quite a stretch!
Knowing that I was going to be away just before the challenge started I made a editorial plan. Yes, a P.L.A.N.
The first thing I wanted to ensure was that I gave a little back to all the amazing UBC bloggers who took the time to read and comment on Better Business Better Life in January and ever since.
An email was drafted and sent to everyone asking for one challenge they would like some help with. Naturally, their requests will be the basis of a number of posts this month.
There will also be posts focused on customer service, building your online presence and entrepreneur profiles with a bit of fun weaved through.
Don’t believe me?
Wait for my special request ready for April 18th.
