31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge

Today I begin the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge.
I’ll be going through the challenge with The SITS Girls. We will be skipping weekends so the challenge will run from 02/07/2011-03/19/2011

I’ll be updating this post with the links to all of my 31DBBB posts.
Just in case I’m behind in updating this post you can also find all of my 31DBBB posts here and I have a link in my left sidebar under the SITS 31DBBB button (which is under the “Recent Comments”).

  1. hey hey hey!

    good morning! i love your blog! and i’m so happy to be leading this challange that i will have the opportunity to meet great ladies with wonderful stories!

    thanks for the idea about my elevator speech.. i think it is still a work in progress, your points are well taken! i think i have been so focused on helping everyone (that’s me-the helper! lol) that i kinda didn’t spend enough time focusing on me! uhhh i do like your recomendations! so thank you!! and your is great!!! very clean and understandable! 🙂

    shelley 🙂


    • Thanks, Shelley! You’re doing a great job hosting and I’m sure that we all appreciate it! I can tell that you like to help people…besides being in charge of such a big challenge is very time consuming. I think your pitch was great and I think it was perfect for an About Me page or something, I just thought it wouldn’t flow as well on, say, a business card or something similar. You’re world’s ahead of me in the blogging arena so I’ll be watching you and learning the whole way 🙂

      Thanks again!


  2. Hey Jenn! Thanks again for stopping my my blog. I made a few revisions to my elevator pitch per your suggestion. Sometimes it just takes a little nudge to me going in the right direction. =)

    Your pitch seems flawless. Great job.

    #sitsgirls31dbbb in the house!


    • Thanks so much for stopping by, Jill!
      A lot of people hate doing the elevator pitches, but as you could see I had a difficult time stopping at just 2! Then again, I do love talking about myself 😉


  3. I’m going to play too!!! Good Luck yo you 🙂


  4. Hey there Jenn, Great to be starting the #31DBBB challenge with you and the SITS girls. I look forward to working with you all. I love your blog!


  5. Good luck! I really should do this too….
