Anyone up to a challenge? How about two?
I’ve been slowly working my way through the original 31 Day Challenge by Darren Rowse. It is hard to believe there are only 7 more challenges remaining. As you read in my last post, my class and I joined another challenge – 2009 Blogging Challenge. This post is actually a reflection on my 31 Day Challenge, but if you are looking for some blogging fun or maybe you would like to just improve your skills, there is still time to join both challenges.
My last post actually summarizes and reflects on my reader survey for day 20. Throughout this challenge Ive been discussion various things with my PLN. Some of those are readers. The 31 day challenge has been a great kick start to getting readers:) For day 20, I revisited a survey I conducted awhile back on web 2.0 and wrote a post on the results last week. I will definitely come back to this at a later date and run more surveys. I used poll daddy and it was very quick and easy. Day 21’s challenge asked us to make someone famous, like I have that ability 🙂 lol. I did include @ccroad in my last post and asked readers to add her to their twitter.
I really enjoyed day 22’s challenge to make readers aware of my blog basics. There were several topic to choose from and I basically choose to cover the creation of my blog and it’s purpose. This is a great reflection to do regularly! I am actually still working on day 23 in which we were suppose to go on a dead links hunt. I used the one Sue suggested, W3C link checker. I am still checking links. It did find categories that I had made when creating the blog, but didn’t actually use. This is a great resource. After I finish the blog, I will be checking out our school website for deadlinks!
