With this post, I have successfully completed the Write Tribe Pro Blogger challenge. All through the month of October, I have been posting twice a week on both my blogs.
I got to read some great blogs during this challenge. Some new, some old. Discovering awesome blogs is a great reward for taking part in such challenges. It’s a great pleasure to finish the challenge in the company of such awesome bloggers.
Signing up both the blogs was a brave move from my part. I didn’t expect that I would be able to finish both the blogs, but I signed up both anyway thinking that the push to try and write would be good for me. And as expected, it was hard to keep up with writing on both the blogs and link up before the deadline closed in every single time. Probably I was the last to write and link up almost always during the challenge. 😀
I learned that writing in this space with little time on my hand and a deadline to race against, is very hard. I am hoping to continue posting here weekly once if not twice. Some of the posts which I wrote in haste didn’t give the satisfaction from a writing and quality perspective, but I published them anyway because I was running out of time. Compromising on quality and content and suffocating myself with the craziness totally dampened my spirit. I have to steer clear of such shortcuts going forward.
I kept telling myself to schedule but never did, not even once during the challenge. How easier it would have been had I scheduled at least a couple of posts beforehand. There’s a lesson I keep learning challenge after challenge but never learned!
There are a few more learnings I took away from this challenge, which I am saving for a later post.
Regardless of all the madness, I did enjoy being part of this. It gave me something to think about for me, for my blogs. It was actually a relief for my mind which usually revolves around the kids and the chores.
Thank you, my dear readers, for supporting me throughout and showering me with positive words of encouragement when I am in dire need of them. 🙂
So, did you participate in the Problogger challenge? How was your experience? How do you think I did? Do you have any feedback for me? I am all ears. 🙂
