I have decided to join in with the 31 Days to Build aBetter Blog Challenge over at Aussie Mummy Bloggers so that I have some idea about blogging before stepping even further out of my comfort zone and heading to Sydney to the Aussie Bloggers Conference. I am late to start the challenge but what is new there? Here goes…
Day 1 of the challenge is to write an elevator pitch. The idea is to have a short and sharp piece that you can say about yourself when the opportunity arises…The goal is both to communicate what you do and entice the person receiving your pitch to want to know more….Knowing what your blog is about helps you in developing every aspect of it.
to be a part of it too. I didn’t want to change the focus of superRelish so I had to find my own home.
What do I blog about? Hmmm, another difficult question. Normally whatever pops into my head, so it is generally about me and my life, again nothing exciting. I remember the first bloggy get together that I attended, I hadn’t done my homework so I didn’t know anyone there other than Karen from MiscMum. Luckily we all had name tags and to make things easier, the tags also had our blog names on them. I remember being asked if I had a foodie blog and until that second I hadn’t thought of MyRelish as a name relating to food at all, merely that it was a derivative of superRelish. When I explained that the only time food was mentioned on my blog it was to recount just how much the bottomless pits I call my children actually eat! I went on to explain that I blog about me and my family and/or life in general. I think it was Steph over at Eidetic Memory who commented that she was relieved that there was someone else who just blogged for the sake of blogging and didn’t really have a purpose other than recording life as it was. I guess there are two more possible tag lines, blogging for the sake of blogging or recording life as it is.
Something to start with at least, but now I don’t know what tag-line I like best
- …nothing super, just my Relish
- …blogging for the sake of it
- …recording life as it is
- …where the life of the superRelish crew is recorded
- …the grownup side to superRelish
I still like the original, but recognise that change is good too so I think I am going to go with #5, the grownup side of superRelish. That way by linking to superRelish I will have to get my butt into gear and catch up again!
Whatever the tag line is, MyRelish is ‘A place to be me, where I can support the crazy world of superRelish without going completely insane. Or at least a place where I can record the insanity.’
