SITS: 31 Days to Building a Better Blog

I have joined the ladies of SITS Blog Frog in participating in the ProBlogger Summer Challenge: 31 Days to Build a Better Blog!  Our Day 1 Assignment was to create an Elevator Pitch.  Initially, I was curious as to why we were pitching elevators, LOL.  Now, I understand what I was supposed to be doing! 

Concentrating on myself is really out of character for me, but here goes...  When I originally started my blog, it was basically therapy for me.  I have health issues and I needed an outlet for my thoughts.  That thought lasted all of about one post.  I realized that I would rather post about coupons, good deals, freebies and giveaways.  I started off slowly and over time, I have increased my posts more than I ever imagined.  When the opportunity to begin doing product reviews/giveaways presented itself, I felt I had found my niche. 

I'm doing the #31DBBB challenge to strengthen my blog. So....here we go!

*What is your short elevator pitch?  Shelly's Bits and Pieces is a blog for ladies, moms, dads, anyone.  It focuses on Bits of somethings and Pieces of others.  You never know what surprises await you on this blog.

*Long Elevator Pitch:  Shelly's Bits and Pieces is the kind of blog that anyone can visit and not be offended.  One day I might be talking about buying groceries during triple coupons, and the next day, I might be posting a product review about dog food!  Everything I post is something I want to write about, and is something I will stand behind!

*Did Completing this task change your blog or change the way you think about your blog?  Yes and No.  I did have to think about what was really important to me.  Most importantly, I had to figure out how to put my thoughts into words.

Til tomorrow,
