Don’t forget! We’re kicking off a new round of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge next week. Whether you are a new or seasoned blogger, participating in 31DBBB is a great way to kickstart your blogging into high gear!

Education Channel

We’ve got all the details outlined, as well as the sign up form, waiting for you in our #SITS31DBBB post from last week.  You’ll want to purchase the 31 Days to Build A Better Blog ebook. Make sure you use promo code SITS25 for your 25% SITS Girls discount – yay!

If you plan on participating and you haven’t joined one of our 3 blogger experience groups yet, you’ll want to do that too. Get the details on which blogger group is for you.

We’ve have several of the same questions pop up regarding the challenge, so we put together the below list of FAQs as a guide.


Do I absolutely have to buy the ProBlogger book?

No, but we strongly encourage it. You can follow along without the book. However, you will increase your experience during the program 1000% by having the book by your side. Plus, Darren is offering 25% off of the normal price using the code, SITS25.

What if I have the first edition of the book, rather than the latest copy?

You are welcome to work through the challenge using the first edition of the book. You just won’t have a copy of the latest updates, as well as the week of Bonus Material that Darren added. If you are OK with that, then you’re ready!

Am I required to sign up for a group? I don’t know which group to join.

Don’t worry a ton about which group you sign up for. The groups are just a starting point for everyone and a way for us to get you on our email distribution list for this challenge. You are welcome to move around as you see fit and as the challenge progresses.

Meet Our #SITS31DBBB Team!

She’ll be featuring her popular Blog Idol Interview SITS 31DBBB edition throughout the weeks of the challenge on her personal blog, Moments that Define Life, as an additional support…you know, because you should have loads of extra time to read while tackling those challenges. {Ahem}  Find Nicole on Twitter at @MTDLBlog.
