Congrats! We’re at the last week of the Blog Improvement Project — a year smarter and, hopefully, a year better at blogging. This post has details for the final task, as well as information (and a request) regarding the future of the BIP.
The Final Task
The task for the final week is to do a second review of goals from the beginning of the year. We did a mid-year review in June, but I think it’s also important to revisit overall goals from the year to see how we did.
This one is going to be relatively simple — head back to your original goals (from Week #1 and Week #12) and see how you did. You can revisit your goals informally, or do it more formally with an end of the year blog post about how your blog improvement project went. I’m also going to suggest looking at ProBlogger’s 69 Questions to Ask to Review Your Blog if you have the time — they are awesome and cover a range of topics.
However you do it, the important thing is to look at the goals you didn’t complete and decide 1) if they’re still important, and 2) how to achieve them next year. Leave links to any posts in the Mr. Linky below.
The Future of the BIP
After thinking about it for awhile, I’ve decided not to do another version of the BIP next year. While there are still lots of topics I can think of, I want to focus more on book blogging next year. It’s been a really fun project and I’m sad to see it ending, but also happy that so many people participated. That was really gratifying.
Even though I won’t be doing the BIP next year, I would like to get some impressions from people about how it went. The BIP was the first challenge/project I’ve ever hosted, so I want to know what to change if I try it again. I created a survey (it’s only nine questions) that I would really appreciate it if you could take the time to do. Please click here to take the survey.
Thank you all again for your participation. The BIP would not have been as great as it was without your hard work, willingness to ask and answer questions, and dedication to your blogs. You all rock!
