Blogs have been around since the turn of the millenium. Bloggers on Tumblr and Wordpress alone are publishing nearly 30,000 posts each minute of every day, and that stat was populated over two years ago. Still, today many businesses are struggling to produce the right mix of relevance and content for their blogs. If you are in charge of writing content for your business blog or know who is, you may have experienced or witnessed those times where we feel stuck. Coming up with high quality, consistent, engaging content on a regular basis is not easy.

Hold yourself accountable and grow your business exposure and engagement with just 30 days of consistency.

Beyond just the challenge, we hope you refresh and repeat some of the topics in the future. Because in case you didn’t already know - blogs that publish original and high quality content at least 15 times per month get 5x more traffic than companies that don’t blog on a regular basis. Small businesses (1-10 employees) tend to see the biggest gains in traffic when they post more original blog articles. Last but not least, companies that go the extra mile and increase their blogging from the average of 3-5 posts per month to 6-8 posts per month almost double their leads (Impact: 55 Blogging Statistics and Facts Everyone Should Know).
