30 Days Of Medium

30 Days Of Medium

I recently discovered Medium a couple of months ago and fell in love with it immediately. The way it works, the design, UX and the ability to expose my content to huge new audiences of people hungry to learn.

Tom Kuegler was one of the first people I followed, and I read a lot of his content, which was always informative and inspiring. I’d recommend you give him a follow, he seems to be a relentless content machine!

There’s a ton of talented writers on Medium and a ton of great targeted content, what’s not to love?

Which is why I’ve decided to embark on what I’m affectionately (for now) referring to as, my 30 Days Of Medium Challenge.

It’s been done before, I’m sure, but I found it interesting reading the stories of others who’d done similar, and thought I’d share my own with you.

I’ll be writing a new post on Medium every day for 30 days, on how to build, grow and scale your WordPress based business.


Why am I doing this?

Ultimately I want to build my readership on Medium and grow my business, by helping others build, grow and scale their WordPress websites.

I also think it will help me become a better writer.

I have a habit of turning every post into a hugely detailed monster (which is good, but not always) and I think this challenge will help me create shorter, snappier pieces of content that still deliver great value to my readers.


What will I be writing about?

How to build, grow and scale WordPress based businesses.

If you have a WordPress based business, my content is for you.

If you’re not using WordPress, there will still be a lot of useful content for you around driving traffic, generating leads and improving the performance of your website.

And hopefully in the process I can convince some of you to give WordPress a try!


How to follow my progress and see my posts

Simply follow me on Medium and they’ll make sure you’re notified of my posts! I’ll be publishing my posts here on The Startup (a truly awesome publication).

My coffee expenditure may triple, but if my readership and writing skills do too, then I’d say it’s definitely wroth it.

Thanks for reading and hopefully see you tomorrow for Day 1 of my 30 Days Of Medium challenge. I better go stock up on coffee and stress balls.
