January Blog Jumpstart Challenge - 2018 FAQs For You To Review

 January Blog Jumpstart Challenge 
 2018 FAQs For You To Review



Welcome! The 2018 7th Annual Blog JUMPSTART Challenge offers each of us an opportunity to continue to build our Blogging skills.

Basic requirements: A minimum of 200 words and a VISUAL of some kind.

Please read the Announcement Post CAREFULLY - link above - and perhaps your questions will be answered. If not, check the FAQs here or write to me.

Either I will reply or another Ambassador helping out with the Challenge will reply to assist you!  All the best - Lynn     


CHECK BACK for continued updates! 

FYI - All the problems people have encountered and reported to me were from not following the instructions. Detailed - yes - but thorough!


*****   as of January 16th, 2018   ---

 *****   1  ( and #7)

Access Checklist from Google Drive by downloading it.
The Checklists are VIEW ONLY. To get you own copy to edit,
open the checklist, click file-make a copy.  Save the copy to your Google Drive Spreadsheets (or EXCEL or ? if you don't have Drive). Now you may edit the document to include you own Challenge entries. By now you understand that using Google Doc's is a "SECRET" part of Challenge! More Google Doc's info - 2+ min.

 Do I have to post in certain groups or on the Contest page?

Enjoy choosing groups where you will get the most benefit.  (See #7.)
No certain Groups are required. One important thing to remember:
Posting links ONE-BY-ONE on Challenge page is not submission for points.


*****   3
"Double-Dipping" Allowed? Yes - combine the Challenges!! 
Use your post from Debbie Reynolds' Challenge 2018-The Best Year Yet   And/Or use your post from AR Staff Challenge Advice to New Agents
BTW - that will get you an additional 1000, 1500 or 2500 points.

 NOTE: The other Challenge posts are eligible from any day written in Jan. 2018.


*****   4

 The "W" and Community Guidelines posts - part or extra?

One for EACH counts as required posts on every level. As a community, the  ideals from the Founders spell out the direction for our AR Culture.



*****   5


YES!   Perhaps start with the MINI and move up to the MAXI or just START with the MAXI and complete one section at a time! Each level builds on the level that comes before and offers more variety and skill practice.

Once you have new skills in your personal "Blogging Toolkit" - your skills patiently wait there to make your future Blogging much easier! Every step of Challenge is about learning.


*****   6

Where can I find suggestions for Visuals for Posts?

Look for Post for Visual Elements by January 20th ...



*****    7

Must I submit a Checklist to get my BONUS POINTS?

Yes, submitting the completed Checklist is the ONLY way to receive the Bonus Points for the 2018 Challenge. You may leave a link to your Checklist in Comments in the Announcement Post or attach Checklist to an email .

Secret message: Downloading from Google Drive to get Checklist and then deciding (or learning) how to submit the Checklist is another aspect of the Challenge. This accomplishment is your points request.

Thanks for the FAQs, Lynn. This helps, especially explaining the Checklist and how to edit. Off to take care of that and start filling it in.

I'm so impressed, Lynn! You are SO organized and running this challenge like you've done this before!!

Funny but, I was wondering if I could take a day off - for some reason, I thought I had to post something every single day and realized that I'm 1/2 way on the challenge and with only 7 more to go and I have until 1/31 to post those, I'm in great shape!! LOL

See you at the end of the month!!
