First Week of BlogX Done

What a week! You may have noticed some changes that have come to Sound Called Music. More posts, an optimized about page, and a complete restructuring of the URL system (long URLs are no longer so long), and way more posts.

Why am I doing this all? Tentblogger, an awesome blogger who blogs about blogging (now you try to use blog four times in the same sentence) that I respect very much is running everyone (or, at least, everyone who wants to) on his forums through a 90 day blogging bootcamp to get us in shape. We call it BlogX (inspired by an exercise program)  Its going awesome, and I wanted to share some of the things I am learning.


Main Takeaway Just Write

Ive had to write a lot this week to post the amount that I have. Im not to good at just writing. Not adding media, nothing, just writing. Theres time for everything else later. It worked quite well and I am happy with the results.

One thing I really love about this program is the focus on content. I love writing content, but I never got around to doing it. This first week showed me that I could get posts out everyday, and that they didnt have to be short little pathetic posts that didnt teach you anything. They could be good posts that you liked and enjoyed!

What I Hope to Learn and See Happen

There is a difference between what I wish for, what I hope for, and what I expect. I wish for several hundred views a day by the end of this. I hope four a couple hundred, I expect around 100.

I also expect to learn a lot from one of the ones who does it best. Already I have realized that there is a lot that I dont know about blogging that will help me become a successful one. I dont expect to earn a living from blogging, but it would be nice to make a few bucks on the side if you know what I mean.

I have to say, I have absolutely no complaints about this program (so far at least). Sure this may sound fake to some people but hey, I cant talk to you in real life. If you are a blogger, I highly suggest checking this guy out, he can help you a ton.

And tomorrow, we will be back to our regularly scheduled posts.
