Day 1: Let the “Build a Better Blog” Begin

I read ProBlogger. It’s not because I expect to one day have a ProBlog myself. I already have one, says I. And my opinion is the one that counts here. But I enjoy reading that blog for suggestions of ways to make this blog’s experience better for YOU, internet. Isn’t that nice of me?

ProBlogger is doing a little “improvement” event called 31 Days to Build a Better Blog. For some reason, I signed up. Today begins Day 1. (Ooo, how exciting?!)

What is it?

I currently have NO idea, really, what this 31-day “challenge” is. What I know so far came from the ProBlogger website (duh):

  1. I get assigned a task each day
  2. There will be brief teaching to help me implement the task

The money-back guarantee is that I’ll have learned 31 aspects of blogging and put them into practice. ISN’T THIS SO EXCITING?

So for the next 31 days, I’m guessing that the format of this blog will change slightly. It’s probably for the better anyway since very few people seem to enjoy Therapy Thursdays, or so I hear.

Today’s challenge is to write an elevator pitch for my blog. Basically, what is my blog all about? So I didn’t really know how to answer this question* and therefore need your help. How would YOU answer it, my faithful internet followers?

*You didn’t REALLY believe that I didn’t have an answer for that, did you? Of course, I’m not about to give it to you people right away because I think instead, I’ll make it sound very nice (like it was written by an English major en route to a MS tech writing degree) and post it on an ‘About’ page to come.

  1. I like to copy you, cuz I think you’re super rad. I might do this thing too. But I’d better start today or not read your blog until I’m caught up cuz then I’ll lose motivation and not do it.

    Anyway, I might try to write an “elevator pitch” but I can’t right now. Too sleepy. Besides, what is an elevator pitch? Is that the pitch that can be said and done while riding an elevator? If yes, then what’s the building that the elevator is in? Dillard’s? Or the Church Office Building? We have to factor in such things in our pitches…


    1. DO IT.
      That was me trying to motivate you. I could never motivate you to run, but perhaps I can motivate you to be a better blogger. Of course, when you’re already a great blogger, it’s hard to improve on the practically awesome.
      Elevator pitch is something that happens when the elevator drops a floor or two and it pitches you around.
      Also, it’s a short description of about 100 words or less.
