His challenge to write 300 articles this year, reminds me of my original business plan and mission was for my PLR website four or five years ago.
My business plan was to write PLR and sell it on the site, and my mission was to find local people who could also contribute and create an outlet for them to get started with their own business. They could start with articles and build up to writing for hire by my own customers.
Instead, when I went to implement it, I loaded the site with junk PLR and RR that I already had to "get started with." Instead of creating my dream, it became my nightmare by diluting my purpose and reputation. It became another boring job I didn't want. Even though it was making money, I was discouraged with it and left the business for about 18 months or so. Even ignored, the site continued to trickle monthly income for a little over a year. At least that gives me a niche I know can be profitable.
But, ever since I saw his challenge, the Jogging Blogger has been in my head constantly nagging me about where I would be today if I had started the site with only one article pack and consistently written just one article a week since I started.
This thought that is ringing in my ear, only got louder when I discovered many articles and even a few books I started back as far as four years ago. Now, I realize that I could have had over 40 article packs of 5 articles each for sale on my PLR site. Additionally, I would have developed a following of people interested in my style of writing and I would have the outlet my mission requires.
So, I'm going to eat this elephant using a three-tier goal plan. Completing any level is counted as a success.
My Three-Tier Goals
- The Ultimate Challenge: Write 10 article packs consisting of 5 niche related articles.
- The High Challenge: Write one article pack in a week.
- The Entry Challenge: Write one article every week.
My purpose for the challenge:
- Build consistency in my writing
- Improve my writing
- Produce new Product
This isn't as easy a challenge for me as for others. For example, the Jogging Blogger can write a 500 word article in less than an hour. I've spent well over an hour writing this challenge so far. Most of my writings are in scattered niches rather than in one niche suitable for a pack.
I can't list all the topics I can write on, but here are the first three I can think of...(make that four.)
- The Bible
- Time management
- WordPress Security
- many more...
I write according to inspiration which usually comes by reading questions or articles on the topic. I always get bogged down by general questions like "Can you write about weight loss?" Sure, "Be more specific." Not to be a smart-ass, but while Tiffany Lambert can churn out the pack with that question, it's too broad to inspire me to do so.
If you want to help.... Please ask questions. It's not that I'll answer them here, but I'll start a list of inspiration to write from. If not, I'll search Quora for questions.
Thank you for tagging along.
