Great Ideas From the Blog Topics Community

If you’ve been interested in checking out my Blog Topics project, but weren’t sure what you were going to get, today’s the day you get to see what matters most: some of the results of the bloggers using the topics as springboards for their ideas. Here are some of the blog posts that were inspired by their experiences in the Blog Topics community:

20 Simple Ways You Can Be Happy, Healthy & Wealthy in 2011 – and thanks for the mention. Very kind of you. : )

Customer Service: Book Giveaway – Simon says, Completely inspired by your idea of writing a blog post that highlights someone else instead of just talking about my own stuff and what I am doing. Decided to turn it into a competition to make it more fun but the idea was to promote Peter’s book.

Introducing Fundraising Kick: Sometimes it’s all you need! – this takes TWO ideas from the email newsletter into one post. Nice work!

Eight Changes I Made to Improve My WordPress Blog – Peg, who inspired several ideas in the community so far.

How Do I Plan My Future When My Past Is So Lousy? – best title, eh?

Seven Ways to Build your Follow List via Twitter – ah, numbers AND Twitter. We have a winner.

How to Create a Rock Solid Social Media Strategy for 2011 – timely, too.

Our Miracle Son… A Purpose For My Second Life – Emma wins for bringing a tear to my eye, on top of it all.

See How It’s All Different and Unique?

Everyone approaches their blog topics and writing advice differently. They make it their own in very fascinating and interesting ways. I am so honored to be able to share with you the work of some of the 250 people currently signed up for Blog Topics, and I hope to share even more with you in the coming weeks, as they complete new assignments. I hope you find some new favorite blogs to discover in the process, as well.

    I think it would be pretty interesting to see how different the blogs can be if they stemmed from the same prompt. I like seeing the different spins used based on the industry and person.

      Great idea.. neat to see how people see the same subject from different minds.

    Thanks! This is even better than a sample list–it shows how people used the topics!

    Hi Chris,

    The greatest part about the Blog Topic prompts is how your questions require us to look inward and find our own answers. The topics just provide the framework. For those of us who aren’t often in the position to be “the authority,” the writing prompts are a wonderful way to harness our own experiences, develop a more unique perspective, and get used to hearing the sound of our own distinctive voice…Thanks for providing such a helpful service, at a very reasonable cost. ~Peg

    Wow, what a great collection of posts. How cool is it to know you gave a helping hand to people who are taking action and being creative.

    Also, this post is the best way to ease objections – through proof!

    Great idea Chris.. A neat way of showing results and taking care of your supporters.

    I have to agree with Sal (comments below) it would be great if there was a comparison of posts on the same subject maybe an external related posts kind of thing.

    And like Hashim said there is no better way than giving proof of how useful it can be to your community.

    OMGosh, Chris! I woke up this morning tired and exhausted from 3 straight of “exhaustion” and saw that my Blog Post was included on this post! It energized me so much and I forgot that I was exhausted! THANK YOU so much for taking the time to read and even share my post. You truly are the real deal and I am so grateful for you! As you know, you have inspired my “Relational Marketing” brand from the very beginning and you continue to do so! Blessings to you and your family!

    This is a great way to promote the work of others Chris, simply going through those lists of articles have opened up more blogs for me to read and more people for me to know. I think it goes beyond just blog topics, it is indeed a community, it also fosters relationship and helps the participants to extend their blogs. Funny how one idea can have several dimensions once brought into life.

    Well done for taking a shot at this Chris!
