Project Description

Write a blog post showing your expertise in _____.

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to share an original blog post in the Project Gallery to grow your audience or brand.

The topic of your post could be anything you're passionate about, that shows you're a thought leader in that particular space. Personally, I chose to write a piece on how morning routines can make you more successful as an entrepreneur — but yours can be whatever you'd like.

Running into writer's block? My best advice is to simply get started. Jot your ideas down in the Project Gallery, get feedback from your fellow students, and refine the direction of your blog post.

 

DELIVERABLE

Write your blog post and share it in the Project Gallery (you can write directly in your Project Workspace, and revise it over time).

To get started, share your:

  • Topic
  • Objective + feel
  • Basic outline

Ultimately, your completed blog post should include:

  • Long-form post (300+ words)
  • Featured image

Remember, when you add statistics (the "meat"), make sure you link to their sources directly in your post to add credibility. 

Feel free to refer to my example post for inspiration, as well as the tools and resources below.

I look forward to reading your blog!
