One-third of the way into January, Zero to Hero participants have already published multiple posts, customized their themes, made connections with other bloggers, and started racking up likes, comments, and followers — and we couldn’t be more excited.
If you’ve just joined WordPress.com or just learned about Zero to Hero, it’s never too late to get started!
Zero to Hero is a 30-day blogging challenge that asks you to complete one focused task a day. Some days, you’ll write a post. Others, you’ll activate a new widget, add a personal touch to your theme, or spend time interacting with other bloggers. At the end of 30 days, you’ll have a customized blog with a half-dozen or more published posts and will be starting to build your readership. Best of all, you’ll have clarified your own blogging goals.
The full details of every assignment are available on the main Zero to Hero page. This is a self-guided challenge; we suggest that you complete the tasks in order, but other than that, how you do it is up to you. Do a few at once, spread them out over 40 days, do them at 3AM — we don’t care. This challenge is all about you, and helping you build a solid blogging foundation.
