I’m very excited to participate in ProBlogger’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge. Each day, I’ll have teaching and theory as well as a challenge – whether that’s a specific kind of blog post or plugin, or social media component. And theoretically, after 31 days hopefully I’ll be pumping out more quality content and be more engaging than I currently am.
So today’s first challenge was to write an elevator pitch. An elevator pitch, according to Wikipedia, is – “an overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The name reflects the fact that an elevator pitch can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride.”
So what’s my digital mission? I know that what I want you guys to take from my posts is some knowledge how to play in the social media sphere. How to contribute to conversations (I like to use #beuseful on some of my stuff on Twitter). How to engage your community, and participate in larger ones.
And I know – there’s a ton of people out there that want to tell you how to do that. Maybe they’re ‘experts’ or just have been in the game longer than I have. But that’s not the point. I’m still learning. You’ll hear what I’m doing – what works and what doesn’t – as I navigate this space.
That’s my mission anyway. So, here’s a couple of elevator pitches.
“Be Useful. Engage Others, and Earn Friends through Social Media.”
“Social Media Trial By Fire”
“My Journal as I navigate the Social Media Sphere by Being Useful and Building Community.”
What do you guys think? Care to leave a comment. I’m curious as to what your interpretations of this blog project are. Thanks for reading.
