31DBBB Day 1: My blog in 30 seconds or less

*I’m joining Not Your Average Teen in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge. We’re spreading out the 31 Days to make it easier so our 31 Days will end in February.* This project was scrapped. I’ll be continuing on with The SITS Girls starting February 07, 2011 June 01, 2011.

Day 1: Write an Elevator Pitch for your blog

An elevator pitch is an overview of your blog that can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (for example, thirty seconds or 100–150 words).

I decided to break this down into several different elevator pitches for different situations depending on how much time/space is involved. I tried to build everything around my old tagline:
“Faith, traditions, and a whole lot of family fun!”

1. Find creative ways to have fun, start traditions, and make memories with your family with the Coolest Family on the Block!

2. Coolest Family on the Block: faith, traditions, and a whole lot of family fun! Helping you find creative ways to have fun and make memories with your family.

3. Christian stay-at-home mom blogging about faith, traditions, and a whole lot of family fun! Helping you find creative ways to have fun and make memories with your family.

4. Domestically-Challenged Christian stay-at-home mom trying to go green, organic, vegetarian, and possibly crazy. Blogging about faith, traditions, and a whole lot of family fun! Helping you find creative ways to have fun and make memories with your family.

5. This mama cracks herself up! Oh, and she also blogs about creative ways to have fun, start traditions, and make memories with your family.

6. Do you like to read the nonsensical ramblings of a stranger?! Then by all means…subscribe!

7. This blog doesn’t make any sense or seem to have any real purpose. But you should probably read it anyway.

8. No one reads this blog. You should start. Unpopularity is cool!

9. Me blog. You read.

10. I always get picked last for kick ball.

Here are some new ones that I’ve been using:
11. Coolest Family on the Block…We put the “fun” in dysFUNctional! 😉

12. Coolest Family on the Block is committed to helping you find creative ways to have fun & make memories with your family all year-long. Written by a Domestically-Challenged Christian SAHM trying to go green, organic, vegetarian, & possibly crazy.

When I started this blog only a few months back in August 2010 I was hoping to focus on all things regarding family fun, traditions, holidays, birthdays, and preserving memories. Although I do write about those things on occasion (mostly during holidays) right now my blog is about me. And I’m getting a little reputation for kinda being a little bit funny. Hardy-har-har 😉

You can learn more about me by going to my about me page. Makes sense, right?! Also, my Welcome page is highly recommended.

So, which elevator pitch do you like? Do you have any other suggestions? Tell me in the comments!

    • Apparently many people do not want to join me, since I have hardly any readers, haha! They must be intimidated by my witt and the sheer coolness that I exude 😉

    • Thanks, Helena! I had a hard time with my pitch because I’m such a long-winded person…I thought “how can I keep this short?!”. I do like talking about myself…and my blog…and in general…

  14. Okay, I’m a little late to this shindig but my vote is for your subscribe message in red at the bottom of your entry!

    Except perhaps you need a pic of someone in a straight jacket beside the word “committed”.

    Well done, and I can’t wait to see which one YOU choose.

    • Oh my, Teresa I LOVE that! I can’t believe that with all of my own references to me being crazy that I didn’t make the connection to the word “committed”. Now you have me going in a whole other direction now. How’s this:
