Your Plan for Success
To be successful, you must first be a writer, blogger, and lover of words. You probably enjoy ideas stories and all that goes with it. You probably have pens, pencils and journals in your home and lots of them!
To be successful at Blog 31 Days, you must love the idea that you’re going to write about. Here are 10 steps for success at Blog 31 Days™:
1. Join our Writing Group and Email Listing! It’s FREE!
2. Choose A Topic
Here’s the way it works. You will choose a topic that you truly love and one in which you can write about for 31 days. Yes, 31 days. ( And, some of those days are surely going to be long because life happens? Life happens?)
You must be able to love this topic enough to spend a great deal of time and effort blogging about it so choose well. This would be something that you enjoy, want to learn more about and even want to share with others. You might be an expert about this topic but you don’t have to be. This may be the very topic in which you gain your expertise as your research, write and blog.
3. Select a Category
We have selected 11 Categories from which to choose. Your topic will fit under one of these categories. At a given time, you will sign up with your topic beneath one of those categories. IMPORTANT- You can only sign up under one category. (Blog 31 Days reserves the right to remove any duplicate blogs or users. See rules for participation).
Choose a category to go along with your blogging idea
~About Me/ My Life
~Faith and Inspiration
~Family and Friends
~Create a Blog or Share Button
Create a blog or share button for your topic. It will be important for you to make your share button title catchy and interesting so as to encourage readers to click on it. Think carefully about what you will title your blog button. Share buttons should be 125 x 125 and can be made using Pic Monkey, Canva, Ribbet or other editing software. It is always good to use your own photograph or image but there are many free art images in the public domain that can be used. For more information on making a blog button click here.
5. Begin to Blog and Develop your Idea. You will really need to focus on your theme and topic in order to put out a blog post every day. Generally a blog post should be approximately 400-700 words. (CLICK HERE for ideas about blogging topics)

So that everyone will be able to follow your blog on your website. Make it easy for them by linking all of your 31 days writings to one beginning post. Here’s how to do that:
On your own blog, you will set up a post to give a caption for every single day that you write. For example if you are writing about “How to change the world”, you will create a page called just that and on that page number from 1-31 ( 31 days of writing). Each day as you blog you will link your day-blogging to that day. For example: On day 1 you might have an introduction so your page will look like this:
How To Change The World
Day 1- Introduction ( and you will link the introduction blog to this). On your 2nd days you might blog about “Changing the world is not easy”.
Day 2- Changing the World is Not Easy ( You will return to the “How To Change the World” page to link up day 2 and day 3 and so on until at the end of your 31 days your whole 31 day series(all 31 individual blogs) is linked on the “How To Change The World” page on your own personal blog.People can then go to your website and click on your “How To Change The World” page to find your whole 31 day series. They can follow along as your blog from day 1 all of the way to day 31. Fun times and lots of visitors!
