2020 Challenges: November Update

November was a productive month in terms of my challenges for this year.

The Blog Audit Challenge 2020

This is a challenge I created aimed at improving our blogs. You can find full details here in case you missed the introduction post. 

Our focus for November was on Press and collaborations. 

The November challenges:

I'm super excited about the increase in traffic to my blog over this year and so it was great to update my stats. My monthly pageviews have almost doubled from just over 15K a month in 2019 to over 30K a month in 2020. 

1. Create a media kit for your blog.

I updated my media kit with a new photo, up to date statistics. I will be doing further updates when I have some more time as I want to analyse and work on the services I offer.

2. Work on your Press page.

I've been making some updates to my press page over the past month. The big additions are the new media kit and updated photos. 

3. Collaborations

Task 1: Do a collaboration on your own blog. 

For this part of the challenge I decided to do a mega round up style post featuring great content by other book bloggers to create the ultimate guide for book bloggers at https://www.jolinsdell.com/2020/11/the-ultimate-guide-for-book-bloggers.html

Task 2: Get someone to host you on their blog. 

Whilst I didn't reach out to other bloggers to do guest posts or other content on their blogs this month I have been working on writing some blog posts which I plan on submitting to some sites over the coming months.

  1. You've done well with these challenges. The collaboration one was such a success with everyone.

    1. Aww thanks. I've had a lot of fun this year doing the Blog Audit Challenge 2020 and the reading challenges too. Currently thinking about what challenges I want to do in 2021. I'll definitely be doing more collaborations.
