In my quest to keep myself immersed in creativity, I’ll be participating in the 2nd S.H.I.N.E. Online Blogging Challenge starting on September 23, 2011, and running until the end of the year.
S.H.I.N.E is an acronym for Stand out, Help, Inspire, Navigate and Engage. Created by author Julie Isaac in 2010, the idea behind the challenge is to encourage writers to blog “consistently” and “meaningfully” not only to establish your web presence, but to provide quality content for your readers to enjoy.
I don’t know if my posts are meaningful. I write what’s on my mind and if that helps someone else, then that’s a bonus. However, it’s the consistently on which I need to work harder. When it comes to blogging, I’m the hot and cold type. Some weeks, I can post every day, then I can go weeks without posting anything. I’ve wanted to find that balance of consistency and I think S.H.I.N.E. can help me write consistently. Meaningfully? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Interested in taking the S.H.I.N.E Challenge? Awesome! Head over to Julie’s site and read the details. Happy blogging!
