Nearly 4000 educators have joined the The 30 Goals Challenge since January 2010. This free e-book challenges you to accomplish 30 social media and professional development goals in 30 days. These are short-term goals, such as guest posting, setting up a Google alert, causing a ripple, and contributing to a blog carnival. Download the free e-book to get started.

The Challenge Continues

In order to ensure this project is continued, I am starting the 30 Goals series and asking if you’d consider contributing a guest post. Please contribute to this new weekly series that will be featuring a post from an educator who accomplished any of the goals. If you are just starting the Challenge, I would like you to consider contributing a post. I will try to post the goals in order but realize many will skip through goals, therefore, I will post submissions as they come. The goal is for each of us to learn from each other and support each other with ideas on how to approach the goals. Moreover, I hope we will read about the challenges we have faced when trying to accomplish the goals. If you have already posted this in your blog, please feel free to post it again on my blog! In fact, I will be asking some of you for permission to post your blog. I may also ask for posts in the form of interviews. If you are interested in doing an interview or submitting a guest post, then fill out this Google Spreadsheet. If you cannot access this document, please e-mail me at ShellyTerrell at or leave a comment and I will get in touch with you.
