Learn Something New Every Day Challenge
 
3 Attachment(s)
Quote:

When we challenge ourselves to do things we have never done before we grow both in our personal lives and in our businesses. I am challenging all of us to learn something new every day for 30 days straight. It doesn't have to be something big. It could be as little as learning a new recipe, or finding out how to say hello in 5 different languages, or even discovering ways to write cleaner code or implementing an SEO tip you have learned. You can choose a theme for the 30 days, or make it something totally different every day. The choice is yours.http://blog.v7n.com/2011/02/03/learn...day-challenge/
Follow the link to the full blog post to read the instructions on how to participate in this challenge.

I look forward to seeing many of you take part of this! :)

For those of you looking for ways to help us promote this challenge....

I'm signing up - I'm pledging to learn something new every day - no theme, just whatever the instinct takes me to investigate and learn at the time.
I'll be blogging about it at http://kaiberie.com.
I'm also going to be doing a 'learn and share 30 things about self publishing at my other site at http://writers-bookshelf.com.

:)

I'm signing up to learn something new everyday. No idea what I will be learning but I'll make sure to share what I learn everyday. Lord knows I have a lot I need to learn.

I was hoping you would be joining us Kelley! :)

I'll certainly be signing up for this Cricket! The theme is loosely based around Database Design and Theory however it could very quickly change to Astrophysics as far as I am concerned.

I was gonna join...til I realized I already knew everything. hahaha

Good contest idea Cricket...I'm in.

This one is a natural for me. I've had a personal "Learn something new every day" challenge going for most of my life. My mother always claimed that my first word was "Why?" and my second word was "How?" <grin>. I'll be blogging some of it over the next 30 days, either at my personal blog or my business blog.

swedal 02-03-2011 05:23 PM

Oh yeah, I am in! So at the end of 30 days I will know at least 30 things :D

Unless I forget....

I came to work today with the quote in my mind, which I learned today :) When I saw this thread, I wanted to share immediately. Indeed I was very excited to learn that ...

Quote:

Mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began...has been revealed to us by His Spirit.
I am in, and will share (excuse if I miss on some occasions).

I learnt how to update/fix the feeds on my Facebook Page. :D

Priceless. Cricket, thank you!

I think that might have to work it's way into my signature!

I often say, what I don't know, I make up!

I will remember to ask you when I need to figure that out!

Learning Something New
 
I'm going to try this challenge. I hope I'm up for it!

I just posted what I learned today on my blog. (Actually, it's what I learned NOT to do -- just as important, don't you think?!)

One of the things I might have to learn is how & why to do Facebook - I've been very resistant. I hope others post about this - or maybe it'll be covered in depth in the upcoming SEO classes. FYI, I'm looking less for the technical hows than the "how to do it so you're not simply either repeating everything on your blog, sounding like a self-important jerk, or wasting everyone's time, including your own." And why? How can this help my business?

Thanks for the challenge!

Cricket, can we have a thread in the Blogging section and a new header to post for this? I'd be interested in this one too.

http://blog.v7n.com/2011/02/03/learn...day-challenge/

Every day that you learn something new, you will report (post) what you learned in the Facebook group we have set up, along with the V7N thread where we will be watching the progress of all of the challengers. If you prefer to blog about what you learn every day, you can simply post your link and a blurb about your blog post.
