There’s nothing I love more than a good old 30 day challenge, they’re so fun! If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll know that I actually have a board just for 30 day challenges. They’re my thing. 30 days seems like a great amount of time to try something new, shake up a routine, or battle a challenge. It’s not too long that it seems impossible, but it’s enough of a challenge to to pique your interest, or it is for me anyway.
So since I have this obsession anyway, I thought why not make my own?! But what to do it on….? Social media of course. I live and breathe social media, which makes this perfect for me. But there are areas of social media I’d love to improve, or try new things on too. Plus sometimes it’s just a great excuse to change up a routine and have some fun, which I think I definitely need right now.
So, fancy joining in this challenge with me? You’ll find a list of daily challenges below, so feel free to pick and choose them as you like. And even if you guys don’t do them all, that’s fine. Maybe this will simply give you some ideas for different social media techniques you could use, or new things to try.
Either way, have fun with it!
1. Pinterest boards – today is the day to tidy them up, make new ones, delete ones you no longer want/like and organise them completely. Try to make specific ones too. So rather than just ‘Fashion’ maybe split up boards of Spring fashion/Autumn fashion and so on? Also, arrange your BEST and most favourite boards at the very top of your Pinterest, so they are the first thing new audiences see.
2. Twitter chats – find one to join in on today! Get really involved, answer every question, reply to as many of other people’s answers as possible, and welcome anyone you see joining. If you can join in more than one chat, even better!
3. Get interactive on Instagram – Today isn’t about posting (although great if you do!). Today is about being social on this network. Like at least a handful of photographs every few hours, comment on as many photos as possible, find new people to follow, and regularly give people compliments/positive feedback.
4. Snapchat every hour – Try to share your whole day on snapchat, by posting something every hour, whether it’s a photo, video or doodle.
5. Youtube – Aim to comment on at least 5 videos today. Giving feedback is nice!
6. Facebook – Make a positive album. Fill an album with something you love – it could be blog photos, family photos, letters/cards you’ve received over the year, your artwork, anything! Make an album that simply makes you smile, and share it with all your Facebook friends.
7. Tumblr – Don’t have a Tumblr? Set one up today, see what you think. Already got one? Schedule a post to go out every hour today, and keep your feed nice and busy for your followers.
