WordPress As A 30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 0

As much as I disliked the topics I had to post in my first 30-Day Blogging Challenge, I pretty much enjoyed the whole exercise. It’s definitely challenging to find the time to blog a decent post once a day while balancing my work-family-house responsibility. But I did it, and it feels positively great to finish and achieve something, no matter how small a matter it may be.

WordPress As A 30-Day Blogging Challenge

I’ve been thinking of doing another 30-day blogging challenge but on a topic I’m more comfortable sharing. I brainstormed on several ideas, before deciding on a really great one (for me, at least) that I thought of this morning, and one in which I will have great joy to research, learn and blog about.

This 30-Day Blogging Challenge shall be known as the “WordPress As A ___” Challenge. I’ll be posting about 30 ways of how you can use WordPress, not just as a blogging platform.

Not only will this be a useful topic for all of us WordPress learners out there, but I also plan to make them as “living blog posts”, meaning that I will update these articles from time to time to ensure its relevance as WordPress usage evolves.
