This post is the first post for my 30 day blogging challenge. The idea of this challenge occurred to me as a whim and I know why it came to my mind. I wasnâ€™t happy with what I was doingâ€”or rather, what I wasnâ€™t doing.
Iâ€™ve been learning some entrepreneurial materials since the beginning of this year. I now have better ideas about how to do things in the world of entrepreneurship. Nonetheless, I have the most important thing missing from my yet-to-exist empire: a product. The best way would be such that you pay me for being who I am, but thatâ€™s not what where one starts, at least in almost every case. I do have confidence in who I am, but that doesnâ€™t mean you give me your $30 for that. So, in short, I still have no clue about my potential products or services.
Even with blogging, Iâ€™ve hesitated a bit about what to write. The reason is not because I donâ€™t do anything worth saying. Itâ€™s because I have a few conflicting ideas about what to write. It is often advised that if you want to get a good reader base, you better narrow down your blogâ€™s main topics. While I want to focus on one or two topic, I have a wide range of interests that I want to write about. It might be a common situation for someone like me. It would be great if a few of my interests were related to one another somehow so the readers could enjoy reading the majority of my posts. But as I think about it, my role model Chris Guillebeau writes on various topics like traveling, entrepreneurship and personal growth.
I donâ€™t know how the readers (i.e. you) would like my posts on wide-ranging topics. The only way to have a better idea about it is to write on various topics. Itâ€™s much better than thinking over what to write anyway. So, this challenge is an experiment for me. Itâ€™s an experiment to find out what works for me. Itâ€™s also an exercise to keep my blogging muscles.
Yes, this is an exercise of acting anyway. I surely want to hear from you, but the reaction I get doesnâ€™t matter so much. What really matters is that I commit myself to updating my blog for the next 30 days.
Do you have something you want to achieve? Whatâ€™s the smallest yet most basic action you can take to achieve it today? I want to hear from you and please share your thoughts with me by writing comments below if you like. Thanks!
