This month, we change things around again. Unlike the last two months, the success of this one will depend on US. You, me and every premium member. It is somewhat hands on but will be lots of fun, will help us generate quality content and at the same time give us the opportunity to help each other out. Here's how it will work:
Name a teacher who has helped you in school or have inspired you enough that you remember that lesson till today and live various aspects of your life by. Reflect how this teacher influenced your business, your parenting, your outlook in life, your work ethics, your attitude towards health and more. This can be a positive or a negative experience. It also need not be a teacher in high school or elementary school. It could be a professor in college or someone who taught you an evening class at the local community college. Write it out and provide a ‘moral of the story‘ that fits your audience. It is OK to monetize your story if you find relevant products/services.
How it works
We will kick off with an introductory post on March 17th and link to the blog next in line – we'll make sure everyone gets the right links. Essentially, we are creating a ‘content series' that spans several blogs – think Chicken Soup spread out on different blogs. In your post, you should also include a link to the next scheduled blog and our introductory post which will carry a list of all the blogs.
We will announce the project to all members, and social networks. At the end of the series, we will compile a PDF out of the submissions, give everyone proper credit and link backs then distribute it as a freebie, this way we can benefit from our work for much longer.
How this helps you (and everyone in it)
As you know, we are here to help you with your blog. This should help you:
- Build link backs to your blog
- Expand your reach by exposing your blog to new audiences
- Gain some traffic
- Gain newsletter subscribers – think ahead. Put in a call to action or a sign up link to your newsletter. While it cannot be guaranteed you want to do all you can to get people to your list.
- Create great content as well as entertain and help your readers
- Build community standing by working together
Resources to help you
We've also prepared a resource that helps you go through the ways you can monetize your blog. This is not necessary to participate and you can review/act on the resource any time. But if you are new to blog monetization, we encourage you to review these resource. Explore ways to monetize your blog in preparation for this project.

Your next step
If you want to be counted in, let us know below. The first person in the comments below to say “count me in” will be scheduled for March 18th, the second for March 19th, the third for March 20th and so on. We are looking for at least 7 people to kick it off and if there are more the better! I'm hoping we keep this going for 7 – 14 days depending on your response but the cut off would probably be 21 days.
Ideally, we can have enough people in similar niches to group together, however participation is more important.
If you have questions post them in the comments below and I'll do my best to answer them.
So… are you in? Come on! Let's do something fun and generate some traffic together.
