What a fun blog to read throughout this 30 day challenge. Always insightful and full of tips. Things I wouldn’t have stumbled on elsewhere.  This post is a topic I’m quite fond of http://www.hroomph.com/explorations/5000-followers-or-50-advocates/ with a philosophy to my Organic Twitter followers post.

She reminds us in several posts, “how to get more clients”! Brilliant blog worth reading.

It’s that your purpose is your own, and no one else is capable of doing what you’re here for.  If you don’t step up to the plate and do it — it won’t get done. ~ Alllison Rapp


And last, but not least!

    I just like the helpful information you provide to your articles.

    I will bookmark your weblog and take a look at once more right here regularly.
    I’m rather certain I will be told many new stuff proper right here!

    Best of luck for the next!

    Wow, thank you so much Loralee! I’m so grateful to be included with such wonderful bloggers and business owners.

    Donna, I’m so glad you shared your traffic stats. I will be in contact for permission to use them as a case study for a project I’m working on.

    Cheers, Caylie

    Loralee, I’m blown away by seeing myself in this list!

    Okay, I admit that I opened the post harboring a secret hope… but honestly? I didn’t expect to see my blog mentioned here because within the first 24 hours I realized the sort of company I’m keeping here! I was really expecting to find 6 blogs I missed because there were just so great possibilities every day!

    This is actually the first time I’ve completed a blog challenge– have entered 2 or 3 shorter ones and didn’t manage to finish. This was so compelling to me, and a wonderful way to get my blog back on track. I’m totally inspired to keep going and look forward to staying in touch with the incredible people I’ve met here in the last month.

    I can’t believe tomorrow is the last day — my graphics are going to join hands in my last post! It’s been so much fun!

    Awesome awesome post – not because I was included in it (thanks by the way – very humbled) but purely because I just flicked through all the other blogs and although I have read a couple of them before, I can safely say that I will be sitting down with a coffee later and enjoying all the great tips. Just loved Caylie’s article about how to host a guest blogger. As someone who has recently had some guest posts published, and wanting to host others on my site, there are some great tips in there. Thanks so much Loralee (and BTW, I have totally dropped behind with my posts this round, but I have been unwell…and I am just pleased to be part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge Community all year round. I have totally recommended it to many budding blogger friends. My traffic went up by 40% after the first one I ever did and it has stayed at a steady growth since. Which is why Michelle’s blog definitely deserves to be on this list. It is a great community that she has helped build!
