From January 2-31, we are challenging everyone to blog more to see firsthand the results that blogging can generate. Participating companies should submit their blog URLs on this page to enter the challenge. Winner(s) will receive a complimentary ticket to INBOUND 2014 and be featured on the HubSpot inbound marketing blog.
"Always have one H1 header line on your blog. This will help with SEO. An easy and natural way to do this is to simply name your blog (not the individual article) in the H1 style. That way, you can optimize each blog post and get the most reward from your efforts."
Did you blog today? If yes, submit to the challenge!
You're over halfway there.
Now that we're a little over the halfway mark, we thought it'd be nice to take a moment to catch you up on how the challenge is going, and give you some motivation and resources to keep it up.
Thursday, January 23 Worldwide Challenge
Block off your calendars! This Thursday, January 23 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM EST, we will be hosting a worldwide blogging challenge. During this time we're asking participants to write a blog post in just one hour (from 12:00 PM EST to 1:00 PM EST). Whatever you finish at 1, you publish!
We'll be in on the challenge, too ... but no cheating and writing something this weekend ;-) We hope this'll make you realize just how much you're capable of in only an hour.
Advice From Other Bloggers
We asked you for actionable tips and other advice to give to other bloggers. You may have seen some of these daily tips every morning on this very blog, but we've also been asking our social followers for their thoughts on the matter. Here's what we're hearing that may help you out as you #blogfor30.
