What I uncovered during the 30-day blogging challenge was as valuable as a treasure chest filled with riches!
While writing 30 posts in 30 days and meeting some of brightest and most talented online marketers, I uncovered 3 buried treasures.
#1 – I learned to value myself and my expertise.
I realized I have some knowledge, tools, and skills that others sincerely appreciate. Does that sound odd? Maybe so. But I’ve always been under the impression that most marketers know a whole lot more than I do. What a wonderful treasure to be able to use what I know to help others!
#2 – I learned that my opinion counts and is respectfully heard.
I was absolutely flabbergasted when a few of the blogging challenge participants asked for my opinion on new business-building products and projects they were considering. Knowing that others value my opinion is a treasure worth more than all the tea in China!
#3 – I learned that there’s a big Return On Engagement.
Most people call it R.O.I. (Return on Investment). But after completing the 30-day blogging challenge, I’m choosing to call it R.O.E. Working to build community by engaging with others is priceless! I received a “guest expert” interview invitation, an opportunity to join an ongoing Blog Talk Radio show, promos for my business and blog, an invitation to a mastermind group, Re-Tweets out the wazootie, and kudos and kindness galore! This was the GREATEST treasure of all.
So, now do you believe me? I DID uncover 3 buried treasures in 30 days!
