Well this is it; Day 31! As I said on Friday I can’t believe that the challenge is over I have really enjoyed the program myself as well as leading all of you. I am excited to review and get all of my notes in order and put all of these challenges into place. I will be making the move from blogger to wordpress with a new design very soon and feel that this challenge helped me bloom.
I’d like to thank each of you for taking the time to do the challenge these past 6 weeks with me. It was a bit of a challenge at times for me doing it and leading it but like all of you I kept on moving. I’d like to thank you all for your support. A big shout out to Francesca for getting each day’s challenge to “sticky” on the Forum and a thank you to all of the SITS girls for the $100 Gift Card Giveaway.*
Don’t forget that I will be running a review for the challenge on Thursdays starting 3/31 on my site and hope you will continue to work with me as we improve our sites together.
Wishing you all well and hope to see you in blogosphere!
Some Important Info:

If you’re not finished with 31DBBB, I will be putting up a review of the challenge on my site this week and you are welcome to join in our review group on Thursdays beginning 3/31 for weekly reviews and challenges.
In celebration of those who completed 31DBBB, I will be coming up with a badge and will Tweet everyone when I get that back from the designer this week.
Successful bloggers often set aside time to think strategically about their blogs every now and again.
Figure out the things you feel are most important in blogging and develop a plan for next month by specifying tasks you want to achieve each day.
Six posts a week (Sundays are a day off from posting)
Each post day having its own type of post
Time on Sundays for determining the specifics of each post (topics, titles etc.)
An administration task each Monday
Promotional activities on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays
A day for readers (Fridays) for emailing, answering questions etc.)
Stats analysis on the last day of the month
Brainstorming on the first day of the month
You still have to keep up with daily tasks like comment moderation
Don’t bite of more than you can chew, or you may get blogger burnout
BIG recommendation: Look back over the last 31 days of tasks and identify which ones you might want to perform regularly on your blog.
1. What tasks will you continue to perform regularly on your blog?
2. What is the most important thing you’ve learned throughout 31DBBB?
Update: *I’d like to thank the lovely ladies of SITS whose site hosted our Problogger Winter 31 Day Challenge. At the completion of our challenge we had 20 posts on this day’s task on the SITS site’s forum.
