Blogging challenges help with writing goals

I wanted to make writing a daily habit, so, I decided to start a blogging challenge. Initially I planned to write about everything that I was interested in. But later I realized that the readers might not be interested in everything I write. Therefore, I decided to publish my posts under specific categories. With the right planning and commitment, I know I could make it happen.

In 2021, during the first edition of this challenge, the rules were simple: write and publish a blog post every day for 30 days. In 2022, the goal was 60 posts of 800 words over 60 days. This year As a stretch goal, I am to publish 100 posts over 100 days.

Writing Goals for June & July 2023

The blogging goals for June and July 2023 would be as follows:

1. Publish one new post everyday,between June 1 and July 31. In other words, publish 30 posts over 30 days in June, another 31 new posts in July. Total of 61 new posts of atleast 1,000 words each.

2. Every day, refresh or update two previously published posts. This will be an overhaul of the previously published posts to make updated for SEO, content, fix images and broken links. The very ‘ghosts of the past’ that I mentioned earlier. This would mean about 120 previously published posts will get a complete overhaul.

3. About 25 percent of posts I will also aim to publish in Hindi and Marathi.

As a trial run, I will publish one new blog post and update atleast one previously published post everyday, during the first week, for better readability and visitor experience.

Themes galore

Content plan for blog challenge is as follows:

Mypod Mondays: Podcast tips and discussions.

Techie Tuesdays: Tech-related content, reviews, tutorials, etc.

Writing Wednesdays:All things writing.

Travel Thursdays: Personal travel experiences, travel tips, etc.

Foto Fridays: Photography, image editing, and related topics.

Sustainable Saturdays: Sustainable living, environmental issues, etc.

The Big goal behind the blog challenge

By end of July, this blog should be back to where it should have been in the first place: offering good content, and quality content with a good reader experience.

I am publishing this goal here because it makes sense to include ‘content refresh’ of old posts a part of blogging goal. This would mean there is more discipline, structure and transparency to my writing. Hopefully this will lead to better visibility and traffic for this site, which of course is one of the goals behind this blogging challenge.

3. I intend to add more video posts. Last year  I had experimented with an idea called “One Minute SaaS Review” under which I reviewed a SaaS application in literally less than a minute. You can watch a sample video here.

Changes to the Content Plan

Publishing new content is one part of the equation. Making the site more user friendly, and posts more readable is equally important. This is particularly true for the older posts. Many posts have horrible formatting and layout. There is also the perennial issue of broken links and images, and are not optimized for SEO. In February, I refreshed the content and republished over 50 posts. But there are over 200 posts that still need to be revised.
