When you start your own WAHM business, you’ll likely start up a website. In fact, you need a website in today’s world, and a website means a blog.
For some, their business is just their blog. For others, the blog is a side part of marketing their business. There’s no wrong or right answer here. What you need to decide is whether you should blog for 30 days straight as a WAHM.
Am I crazy?
Right now, I’m starting the 30 Day Blogging Challenge. It’s something I did regularly a few years back, writing 30 posts and publishing them one day after another. Then I’d take a short break and go about it all over again.
It wasn’t just about writing, though. Part of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge involves improving your website, improving your content strategy, and finding ways to build your audience. I did 10 rounds in the past on this blog alone. You won’t find all the content anymore due to the way I’ve changed things on the blog, but it goes to show that blogging for 30 days in a row has its benefits.
But it takes a lot of time, doesn’t it? Who has time to blog for 30 days straight? Does it really offer the benefits that outweigh the time spent on writing?

Why you should try the 30 Day Blogging Challenge
As a WAHM, I know you have time that needs to be spent elsewhere. You’re not alone. My family needs me. My pups certainly need me. And yet, here I am, doing the 30 Day Blogging Challenge once more. And that’s because it is worth it.
You build an audience as well as a network. Throughout the past, I’ve made friends with other bloggers. I’ve followed them and helped promote their content, while they’ve done the same for me. I’ve learned more about my blogging style and my audience than I would have even learned without the challenge.
Yet, I have to rethink things on this round. While I’ve had the domain for a few years, the blog as a whole has changed considerably. This used to be a website for writers. I realized a long time ago that I wanted a separate domain for that site, though. And in the summer of 2019 I made the leap. This blog became the home for all things WAHM. I think I can serve you better by splitting things up like that.
So, why should you try it? Because you’ll learn much of the same thing. You’ll figure out who your audience is, get a great About page, work on improving your marketing strategies, and much more. All this leads to a better business and more income. It’s a bit of work in the short-term for long-term gain.
Managing the 30 Day Blogging Challenge
How do you manage to write 30 blog posts in 30 days? Well, you could write one blog per day. The idea is that you do publish one post per day, after all.
But who said that you need to publish one blog post per day? Couldn’t you write ahead of time? I’m going to be in the habit of writing a few days ahead. The night before a post is set to go, I’ll give it one last look over with images and links and hit the schedule button. Even if I miss a day of writing, I’ll have posts that are ready to be published.
This is important for me. It allows me to write when I can and spend time with family when I don’t need to write. At the weekends, I can get things set up to go on Friday nights and I have the entire weekend to myself and my family.
I’ve always found a benefit of doing the 30 Day Blogging Challenge, and I think you will too. Why not follow me on this month’s journey and see if it’s something for you to do in the near future?
