For July, I wanted to encourage all of you growing as influencers to be consistent with the content you ownyour blog content

As an influencer, I’ve been able to leverage my blog content to sometimes even double my rate for a campaign because blog content lives noticeably longer than social media content thanks to SEO. You can make blog content evergreen  – aka always relevant and searchable – which in turn makes it more valuable.

Do you need to blog everyday to be a successful blogger and influencer? No. But this month’s challenge is just that – a challenge. It was created to help you build your consistency muscle and exercise discipline and commitment to a part of your content creation journey.

This month’s challenge is all about: blogging consistently. The challenge starts Monday, July 6 (and is open for anyone to join and be a part). 

During the challenge you must:

  • Blog once a day – Monday through Friday only
  • Monday, July 6 thru Friday, July 31 (20 days total!)
  • Posts should be at least 150 words long and include at least one photo/visual
  • Submit your favorite blog post you wrote of the week in the Facebook group every Friday am (there will be a dedicated thread for post submissions)

I will select one challenge winner on Friday, July 31 and give them $1000 USD via PayPal. Currently, domestic and international applicants are welcome. To be considered for the prize, you MUST:

During this challenge, I’m looking for great content that keeps me interested and engaged in the influencer/blogger’s story and makes me want to read other posts on their blog. Not looking for perfection, just a really deliberate and solid effort!

I’ll be posting everyday here on the blog as well, so I’m with you guys. Be encouraged – you can totally do this! Wishing you all the best. Happy blogging!
