Today I’m starting a challenge to blog every day for a month. Yes, every single day this month. So, if you subscribe via RSS or email, this is a warning that you’re going to get a higher volume of posts in November than usual!
Why every day for a month? Several reasons. I want to make blogging a higher priority and get back into a daily writing habit. I have 50+ half-finished blog post drafts, and I want to share all of the re-entry relaunch ideas, tips, and strategies in those drafts.
Most of all, I want to open up more about why I started SPS, my mission, and why I’m so passionate about helping people relaunch themselves after being abroad.
Several online people I know (like my nomad friend, Amy) just finished the Ultimate Blog Challenge, and they’ve inspired me to do the same thing in November. I have to admit, I’m excited…and a little terrified. 30 blog posts in 30 days – that’s a lot of blog posts!
Join me in a mini blog challenge
There are three topics I definitely know I’m going to write about this month, and so I invited Sabrina, my #GlobalLife2014 Summit Co-host, to blog about these topics on the same days so you could get two perspectives on each topic.
Then I thought, hey, wouldn’t it be even more interesting to read several perspectives on each topic? So I’m inviting you to join a mini blog challenge and blog about the topics below:
#1: What’s the weirdest or dumbest thing you’ve taken abroad?
Post your story on your blog on Wednesday, Nov. 13
#2: Tell us about your first “global” experience.
Post your story on your blog on Wednesday, Nov. 20
#3: How are you living a global life?
Post your story on your blog on Wednesday, Nov. 27
Feel free to blog about all three topics or just one or two – it’s totally up to you! Let me know when your post is live so I can comment and share it around. You can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org or add a link in the comment section of that day’s post).
You can also link back to this post, and if you share your post on social media, use #mygloballife as the hashtag.
Don’t have a blog? No problem. Share your story on the SPS Facebook page or in the comments on that day’s blog post. Or email me your story!
