Happy Halloween! Today marks the final day of my Blogtober challenge. This was originally spurred by my CEO’s involvement in a monthly blogging challenge. He stated that it made him a better CEO and I thought I’d take a shot at it too with no real expectations.
Key Takeaways So Far
As I’m writing these blogs, I’ve noticed they work as a sounding board for myself (if that makes any sense), for bigger ideas. For example, if I wanted to start up a Photography blog – which I’m actually going to pursue separately (more on that later). Simply put, writing these blogs have been inspirational for other ideas.
This blog challenge also has me reading more. I’ve been reading a variety of other blogs and articles to try to help inspire and fuel my blog’s content. Right now all the topics are scattershot, and I feel like I need to move toward a niche and focus.
What’s Happening in November
In November I’m going to start keeping track of the time spent writing these blogs. I usually write late at night starting anywhere from 9 or 10 at night, after I’ve settled down from work and any other activities (Church, gym, family time, etc…). I want to start tracking time spent on this blog, just out of curiosity, and see what my output actually is. Thank you Jason Scott Montoya for the idea!
In November the plan is to write more intentionally. What I mean by that is to have more focused posts and planning out posts. I’m going to be writing less (I actually did the challenge incorrectly by writing every single day, instead of every single weekday) to give me time to plan out topics to write and have some sort of strategy. I think the first part of November I’ll be thinking about where I want CrisAnzai.com’s identity to live. It may end up just being a personal blog or a “catch all” where I post everything and anything and I may have separate blogs where I want to explore other topics.
As I continue writing, November, I hope, will be a refinement month, Hopefully my writing is actually improving… Anyways November will be as much of a challenge as October, I can already feel it. More details to come in tomorrow’s post!
Thanks a bunch for reading!
