Boost Your Blog in 100 Days Challenge by Thaleia Maher (Guest Post)

Come join the Boost Your Blog in 100 Days Challenge! I hope you'll take this journey with me and the hostesses of this challenge! My personal goal for this challenge is for the opportunity to meet other bloggers and get to know them through Facebook, Pinterest, and their blogs. The goal of 100 days is to spruce up our blogs together and kick our usage and understanding of Social Media into high gear.


boost blog in 100 days

Why did I choose 100 Days? 

Well, to be honest I am a very, very busy mom of 4 children, 11 years and under. I do not have extra time to spend laboring over my blog and Social Media. I want results and habits that can transform the limited time I have into something incredible. Spreading out 10 challenges over 10 days each just sounds better to me. Spending just 10-15 minutes a day versus an hour or two makes more sense to me.

Easing into each new challenge should help create a habit a little easier. This will also give you a better understanding of why a particular challenge should be done daily or weekly and how it has helped you.

Quick clarification - anyone with a blog CAN participate. I did seek out an initial 100 bloggers to help promote this series, and in exchange I am using their blogs to direct people to during the 10 days of Comments Challenge. Hope I have not confused anyone. You may do one or all 10 challenges at your own pace or join in daily.

Meet the Hostesses:


honey 400

Honey Rowland blogs at Honeys Life about homeschooling, family life, and green living. With a passion for self sufficiency and natural, special needs parenting, you'll learn about everything from natural, local foods to essential oils and homeopathy, to gardening and farm life. Honey has also turned the constant '"talks too much" report card comments into a home business. She runs social media while obtaining new sponsors and advertisers for herself and other bloggers. So whether you're curious about chickens or children, ask...'cause she's dabbled and babbled in just about everything.

Lisa Nelson from The Squishable Baby focuses on creating positive learning experiences through everyday life. I believe that learning about – and respecting diversity, different religions, other cultures, charity, and our environment – through play, through crafts, through lessons, through giving – will not only produce more empathetic children and adults – but will put a child on a path to a love of lifelong learning.

  1. Hi Clara. So glad you're participating in the challenge. Otherwise, I may not have found your site. I look forward to following and reading your posts. I homeschooled my daughter many years ago. Of course, back then, we didn't have the support of internet friends and family. I'm sure it makes it a bit easier.

  3. This is a great idea. I have been blogging for about 3 years. However, I just got serious about it this year, cleaned up my blog, basically starting over. It is really an assignment from God to be more faithful in using my life and my gifts (writing) to honor Him. Thus I am very much looking forward to this Challenge.

  14. I'm excited about this challenge. I've been slacking on posting to my blog. I've also been trying to decide what to do with the multiple blogs that I currently have...do I combine them to make one big site or keep things the way they are now. I need to figure it out. My husband and I homeschool our four boys. I agree - sometimes they do tell me to "write a blog post about this." I love it! Thanks for blogging and sharing your support for homeschoolers.
