NaBloPoMo or bust! 30 Posts in 30 Days in November

by Michael Stearns from HEROweb on November 1, 2009

Greetings at 1:03 in the morning on November 1, 2009. We are upping the ante with the MightyMerchant Ecommerce Blog by jumping on the NaBloPoMo express.

What the heck is that, you ask? NaBloPoMo is short for National Blog Posting Month. It is, among other things, a commitment to do one blog post a day for the entire month.

Our ground rules are simple:

1. We will post at least once every day in November.

2. Each post will be LONGER than 140 characters. If not, then why the heck not just tweet it.

3. All posts will be somehow related to Ecommerce and web marketing for small business.

Blogging is a regular habit that needs to be cultivated and it is also a key piece of a successful social media strategy that many small ecommerce businesses should consider. A significant percentage of the businesses we work with often get stuck and frustrated right out of the gate and end up in the pile of dead and discarded blogs. (Ooh, that is a disturbing image.)

Of course, there are also the superstars who stick with it and learn to post great content on a regular basis and develop a loyal following.

Big talk ain’t worth much in the web business. We see a lot of so-called social media experts regurgitating all the bullet points about what you should be doing to be successful. Well, we are putting our money where our mouth is by getting in the daily blogging habit ourselves. And, hey, if NaBlogPoMo is inspirational to you, please join us and let us know.

Game on!
