Yesterday was the kick off of the “31 Days to Building a Better Blog” group for Blog Paws writers, as based on a previous series to help writers improve their blogs. I’ll be writing little posts like this one in addition to my regular posts to keep you up to date on the wonders within the group, to detail our progress and the learning curve. Jump in and sign up, it’s not too late, and you don’t want to miss this.
First Assignment: The Elevator Pitch. Do you know how to sell your blog? Do you know what it is your selling? An Elevator Pitch helps you focus your topics and your blog, and to nail down exactly what you’re working on.
While the assignment recommended a piece of 200 words or less, that seemed a little lengthy for me, so I wrote one short version that would be social media friendly, and another that’s blog friendly. Here ya go:
Short: “A view into the life of one girl and her White German Shepherd, with helpful advice, product reviews, and interesting stories along the way”.
Long: “Whether you’re passionate about White Shepherds, starting your life with puppy, or cherishing years with your canine companion, Life with Arie is a great blog for you. Welcome to my blog, which stands as a chronicle of my life with my dog, Arie, a WGSD, as well as my place to offer up all I’ve learned while having her.
Here you’ll find my tales of tails, interesting stories from around the web about animals and the amazing things they do, as well as about the people who love them, and a great deal about pet care and nutrition to help make your life with your pet as interesting, fulfilling, and long-lived as possible. Join me on my journey and share in my laughter, tears, and know how, and share a bit of your own. Thanks for reading!”
The feedback on our first assignment was really engaging, and it looks like we’re going to have a good group to work with. I’m already looking forward to our second task and to getting this blog started right! Do you have ideas or suggestions for my elevator pitch? Please share them in a comment.
