DAY 1 - "31 Days to Build a Better Blog" Challenge: WRITE AN ELEVATOR PITCH!

Started by Shannon , author of Milk and Cuddles 9/30/2011 9:23:57 PM

Welcome to the Mom Loop #31DBBB Challenge!

In case you are new to this concept, a quick explanation of what we are doing can be found here. If you still need to buy the book we are basing the challenges on by Darren Rowse - you can use the discount code: Business2Blogger for 25% off! The book will explain the days tasks in detail!

DAY 1 - Write an Elevator Pitch!

Darren Rowse of ProBlogger tells us "One of the most important reasons to do this exercise is that to develop an elevator pitch, YOU as a blogger need to have thought through and crystallized in your mind what your blog is about."

I found that this was a surprisingly difficult challenge for me! Because when I wrote perspective "pitches" on paper they looked good. But when I tried to say them out loud they sounded artificial!

In the end I made my "short pitch" something very simple and succinct.


My Pitch:

" is a blog that shares inspiring resources for making a home and being a parent creatively!"

How did you find the challenge on Day 1 of our #31DBBB?

I'd love feedback on my Elevator Pitch! if you would too, share yours below!

My tagline/elevator pitch as been: 

"Enjoying the journey of becoming a hands on mom to my two boys through activities, art, and crafts."

I'm not sure if I should be more specific than that. I like to focus on that fact that I have energetic boys and activities that suit them. Any advice on how to include that? And that I focus on play/process rather than the outcome?

After reading Darren's pitches, I"m going to try rewording mine...

how about:

"hands on : as we grow encourages parents to become more hands on and involved with their children."

or more specifically:

"hands on : as we grow encourages parents to become more hands on and involved with their children through activities, art, and crafts."

and sneaking in the energetic boys:

"hands on : as we grow encourages parents to become more hands on and involved with their children, especially energetic boys, through activities, art, and crafts."

Life As I See It [Fitness, Health and Happiness] is about sharing my passion for running, clean eating and overall health and fitness.

A few months ago I narrowed the focus of my blog to my passion and what makes me the happiest, health and fitness. Now I'm deciding if I should keep the original name of my blog, "Life...As I See It" or keep that along with [Fitness, Health and Happiness]? 

Any opinions or suggestions?
