A Sneak Peek at the Education Channel: 31DBBB is Back!

Good morning!

Today, we’re sharing our plans for the Education channel. The start of the new year is always a great time to refocus your energies on retooling and improving your blog, and we’re here to help you do just that with a great set of blog education programming.

Education Channel

31 Days To Build a Better Blog is Back!

We’re partnering up with Darren Rowse of ProBlogger again to run his 31 Days To Build A Better Blog (31DBBB) challenge. For those of you not familiar with 31DBBB, it’s an ebook loaded with daily tasks that are designed to help you improve your blog in a few short weeks.

Already done a round of 31DBBB? Well, you’ll want to stay tuned here at SITS, because we’re changing things up this time to offer something for every blogger at every level of expertise.

As with any other challenge, it’s more fun to do one with a group of friends, right? So when The SITS Girls run the 31DBBB challenge, we do it as a community. Most of the challenge will be run out of our community forums, but we’ll be supplementing our content there with great Education channel content each week as well.

We’ll be rolling out an entirely new 31DBBB format that will allow bloggers to connect with others in their same level of “expertise” and have tasks more customized to your experience level.

On Thursday, we’ll be sharing more details about this new format, so check back. But if you’re already ready to hit the ground running…

Getting Started

Our 31DBBB Challenge will kick off on Monday, January 16. You’ll need to purchase the latest version of the 31DBBB ebook before then. Rumor has it that we’ll be getting a BIG discount code from Darren soon, which we can’t wait to pass on!

{Note that either edition of Problogger’s 31DBBB book will work for this challenge. However, if you haven’t bought the book yet, now is a good time to dive in!}

We’ll be posting additional information about the first week of the challenge and where to get the information you need and slot yourself into the right blogger experience group soon, so stay tuned!

More For You in Education

31DBBB isn’t the only game in town for our Education Channel in the early part of 2012. We have some other fantastic programming lined up. We’ll be covering other great topics such as:

  • Detailed series on vlogging
  • Blog critiques with MomComm
  • Working with WordPress
  • PR and Social Media
  • and much more!

We’re excited about what we have to offer you over the next 3 months and hope that the material we provide helps you meet YOUR blogging goals for 2012, whatever they may be!


  1. Just found this awesome place today. Is it too late to join in on this? Happy to purchase the book without discount (being intentional and all), but will hold off if it is too late to join in on the challenge and have folks actually hold me accountable/support me through the process.

  8. I would love info on how to monetize a blog – various ways, what works best for what, when to do it (i.e. how much traffic do you need before you can start earning some decent cash), resources, how to outreach to advertisers, etc.
