Assignment Number 1 from Problogger project:

31 Days to Build a Better Blog

Create Your Elevator Speech.

Here’s what I had on the blog.


The intentions of this blog is share knowledge, entertain when possible and merge work life with home life.  Interviews and information for and about small businesses and network marketers – that’s what you’ll find here.  The purpose is to educate, always to educate.

So to revise that Darren at Problogger suggests your elevator speech should:

  1. solve a purpose or a need

  2. define your audience

  3. be clear

  4. keep it short

  5. stand out

  6. be intriguing

  7. be energetic but not hyped

  8. consider using a question

  9. be ready to expand your pitch

100 series, 12 for 12k, blogging,Franklin County,God, group writing, interview, Iowa, network marketing, Old Stone House, review,shop local, SOBCon 2009,twitter

100 series: my challenge to write 100 blog posts to determine the direction of my blog

12 for 12k: support for non-profits, differs each month

blogging: how to and related directions

Iowa: all things related to Iowa

God: some spirituality for all of us

Review: reviews of places and things

Based upon my labels, which are indicators of what I’m writing about on my blog I can now refine my elevator speech.

Iowa based blogger writing interviews, strategies for network marketers, reviewing places and products, sharing what I’ve learned. Out, standing in my field.
