The Content Challenge

I set my bootcamp group a challenge this week: to create content in a form they've never used before. It's so easy to think, 'Better write a blog post.' But there's a whole smorgasbord of content possibilities out there. And they're rising to the challenge beautifully: one has just posted in the group her first ever infographic, having been introduced to Canva - it looks amazing! It's branded and oh-so-sharable, and it's also helped her see her subject in a new light and work out the structure for the book. Double win. 

So if you're in a content rut, here's a challenge for you: pick one idea from the list below that you've never tried before and give it a go. (Some are easier than others, but that's lists for you.) See what comes up for you as you create it, see how it lands when you share it. And remember to have fun, obviously.
