It is getting near the end of June. For me a pretty sad time. Why you may wonder. Well, let me explain. You see I grew up in Alaska where we live in the cold and darkness for part of the year. My favorite time is always right around December 21, which is about the time of the start of Winter. A great time because the days start getting longer. Just a few minutes each day to start but eventually it starts to add up until you get some real long days.
These long days will carry on until the start of summer which is a couple of weeks away. Then the days start the process and get shorter as we go forward. I know, pretty boring but I digress. Even though it is a little sad I can always count on it being time for the Thirty Day Challenge Pre-Season to be getting started.
You know of the Thirty Day Challenge right? That is where Ed Dale and Dan Raines get together with their crew and try to teach people to earn their first dollar online. They break down the process and try to make it super simple so just about anyone can take part and learn. You may say, your first dollar online, what is that going to do for me? Well, the whole process is to show you how it can be done and if you can learn the process to making your first dollar, you can ramp up the process and expand it to make more.
Anyway it is a real good learning tool and an awful lot of people have learned an awful lot. That was the first place I learned about Twitter a few years ago and this was way before Twitter became a household name to everyone. A lot won’t admit it but we thought Ed was going crazy telling us about this thing called what, Twitter? Look at it now. And heck if you talk to an old timer they can tell you how we came on so strong with Tumblr that they had to tell us to stop using them because they could not take the traffic.
Okay so there is usually a pre-season where Ed, Dan and the gang show us some new toys that we will be using for this years challenge. We then start the actual thirty days in August with a variety of different things to learn and do each day. But because it seems like the Thirty Day Challenge is now year round they have revamped the whole thing and there is no longer a pre-season. Now don’t get your drawers in a wad. It will still be going on but with a new name.
So, I give you the Challenge. That will be the new name for the old Thirty Day Challenge. And the pre-season starting July 1st is now just a part of the challenge. A lot of people were saying that it was too much to go for thirty straight days and some people dropped out. You will start hearing a lot more about it as we get closer.
I wanted to give you a heads up because participation is huge and there are people from all over the world that get involved. If you are a newbie or even if you have some experience I would recommend that you at least give it a look over. They are doing things a bit different this year so if you want to read and learn more about it you can check out the Challenge website. I hope you decide to get involved because you will learn a lot and it could get you started in online marketing. Stay tuned!
