- Each Tuesday, check your email or this blog for the new prompt.
- Publish a post on the prompt within the next week.
- Leave a comment down below with a link to your post so others can easily find it.
- Share your post on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or anywhere else using the #EdublogsClub hashtag.
- Read through your fellow club members posts and leave comments as appropriate.
Prompt #1 – My Blog Story
Let’s get to know each other a little better with our first post.
Write a post that shares your blog story. Some topics you may wish to discuss include:
- Your experience blogging – is this your first post? Are you an experienced veteran? Somewhere in between?
- Do you read other blogs? What are some of your favorites? How do you keep up with them?
- What are your goals for the #EdublogsClub?
- If you are new to blogging, do you have any questions you want answered or fears you wish to share?
- If you are more experienced at blogging, do you have any advice for newbies?
- Anything else you wish to share!
Rules and Tips
The first rule of the #EdublogsClub is that the rules are more like guidelines. We plan for each weekly prompt to include a wide range of options so that you can tailor this blogging journey to meet your individual needs.
Here are some quick tips to keep in mind:
- quality over quantity – some of the best blogs have short but impactful posts. Don’t force an arbitrary word count or length requirement on yourself.
- posts that are helpful to the reader tend to be the most popular, so try and keep your potential reader in mind if building an audience is one of your blogging goals.
- reuse and recycle – if we hit a topic that you’ve written about before, take the opportunity to edit, update, and republish, or simply leave a link to your older posts for the community. It is ok for blog posts to be living documents that evolve over time.
Happy blogging, and don’t forget to leave any questions and a link to your published post below!
