It’s day 2 of my 30-day blogging challenge. I thought that I had everything all done on the first day. Yet in the wee hours of the morning I realized I was only on Step 3 of four steps and I had lot more to accomplish. This blog post is a journal from my 2nd day of blogging after taking my first 30-day blogging challenge. Here’s a link to the 30-day blogging challenge that I took when I first started blogging.
If I knew now what would have been very beneficial back then is to start learning how to use SEO in my posts. I truly didn’t know how to use SEO until I started learning how to use Holisitic SEO which is when my blog’s traffic took a huge turn for the better.
Day 2 of my 30-day blogging challenge
At the time that I wrote this post I had just started blogging and I had no idea how to make a Pinterest pin and for that matter was barely using Pinterest. If you’re a new blogger or if you’re taking your first 30-day blogging challenge I would highly encourage you to enroll in my free blogging mini-course. No subscription is required to enroll in the mini course, all it takes is your first name and your e-mail address. This mini course will provide you with loads of information to start your blog and after it’s started, ways for you to nurture your blog and to watch it grow.
During your first few weeks of blogging you’re going to be inundated with the amount of information that you’re going to need to learn as you put together your blog. This free blogging mini-course puts that information together in a nice little package to launch your blog within 7 days and begin to watch it flourish.
I got a form created for contacting me and I’m starting to get comfortable with using the WordPress dashboard. It’s going to take quite a while before I develop the header and logo for the front of the page. I know what I have in mind, but putting that down on the computer is a whole different matter.
I did manage to write down and input a majority of my boards that are available. Now I’ll just need to hold tight so that I don’t waste a lot of time duplicating efforts before I put in the information that will have hyperlinks to the various boards.

Update (10/12/2020): The evolution of this post has changed so much since it was written. As of today, the number of Pinterest followers has grown to 454 with more than 2k that I’m following. In addition, now there are there more than 10,000 pins on my Pinterest boards.
When this blog post was written I didn’t even know about the power of Pinterest Group Boards. Now I have 62 Group Boards and my goal is to have a 100 by June 1st, 2021. I don’t know if I’ll get there because the number of invites to Group Boards is slowly declining. I’m sure that’s because, like me, the blogger wants to ensure that my board fits their niche too.
If you’re on a mission to build your Pinterest boards, be sure to check out Blogtober Day 13 – 15 Pinterest Boards = 1,178 Group Boards.
Additionally, another blog post worth looking at is: Blogtober Challenge 2020 – Grow your Blog’s web traffic.
