After #CNMAC12: 31 Days to a Better Blog (#31DaysTABB) courtesy of @Problogger

So, #CNMAC12 will have finished, and you’re all fired up and ready to do something to improve the way that your message connects with the wider (online) world…

Come join The Big Bible Project, who are working through 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, starting just after #CNMAC12. Dr Bex Lewis will be working through it, and applying it to The Big Bible Project blog – she hasn’t used it before, but it comes highly recommended by @Goannatree.

Hopefully you will start to see further changes on this blog, which has emerged organically over the past two years, to an average of 5,000-10,000 visitors a month – and which continues as an ongoing/emerging project. It would be great to share challenges/stories of our journey in this, so a Facebook group has been created, and don’t be surprised if a few #digidisciple blogs emerge… see all linked on Pinterest.

Do feel free to purchase the book ($30), or Bex will be sharing the challenges on a daily (weekday) basis.. I can’t promise exactly what time of day!

Visit the ’31 Days’ blog entry, or join us on the Facebook group.
