Blogging Challenges

Start a Blog That Matters

Every once in a while I come across a post that really connects with me and gives me a blogging challenge. They aren’t always difficult, but it’s always fun and rewarding to actually complete a challenge. Sometimes, I say “Challenge Accepted” out-loud to myself like Barney Stinson on one of the top rated sitcoms right now, How I Met Your Mother.

Unfortunately I don’t always get through the whole challenge, but sometimes I do. Usually the main factor is time, I don’t always judge the amount of time needed for a challenge properly.

On this page you find a list of all the blogging challenges I have accepted, and their status along with the related links. If you have a specific blogging challenge you would like me to try, then contact me today, I’m always excited to connect with new people and try new things.

November 17th 2011: Ranking My Blogs Case Study

This blogging challenge was both a failure and a success. It was successful because I learned a lot from my failure to present a case study. There were just too many variables to make any of the data be valuable. This challenge was sparked from a post on SmartPassiveIncome.com.

September 22nd 2011: Million Dollar Blog Project

This blogging challenge was successful at first, but since I used my Mike Green (Hockey Player) blog and he got injured and missed most of the season, well the website went way down in terms of content and traffic. I’ve also decided to change the website from a frequently updated blog to more of a static website with the blog being secondary. This challenge was a project started by ThinkTraffic.
