This was not the “bounce back” week we were looking for.

After not showing up for the last four quarters, we were hoping for a strong showing to start the game.

It was not to be.  Close but not quite.

It might have even been something special.  The play calling was there.  So was the effort.

We only missed in the department of execution.

That can’t happen if you want to be successful—in football or Content Challenges.

Oh, what could have been.

First Quarter of the Seventh Game

Everything about this quarter’s game plan was on point.

But the miscues set us back.

Without them, it might have been a week of greatness.

You see, I’m actually allowing my marketing team to start building my marketing company.  I’ve tried to use them to produce content for Greensboro SEO Pro before.  It didn’t really work.  My fault, obviously.

Now, it’s time to come again.

And come again we shall.

We were looking to begin the turnaround this week.  We almost did.  But a few missed hand offs did us in.

Namely, I made a few mistakes handing this content off to my team.

We got it all done.  But it got done on the wrong days.  So we ended up with a stacked Wednesday and a black Tuesday and Thursday.


To make matters worse, I woke up this morning (Sunday, July 5th) to discover that this post had already been published.

That’s no good… especially considering it wasn’t even written yet.


Such is the current state of my 2020 Content Challenge.

Still, it feels like we’re on the verge of turning the corner.

With a full week’s worth of content set to get pumped out next week and an investment in audio-video equipment looming large on the horizon, it looks like we might be on the verge of an explosive second quarter for this game.

Just the way I want to kick off my Q3.

Zach Bradshaw Publishing 6/28/20 – 7/4/20

This wasn’t a typical week.

New updates to our marketing services.  A misscheduled post.  A stacked Wednesday (lol).

All of those things are rarities.  And yet, my Credit Cards just keep plugging along.  I’ve got about another week of them before I’ll need to find new content for my Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  It could be updates based on recent changes or clearing of placeholder content.  Or I might even start a new group similar group.

We shall see.  There’s no doubt that some of ZachBradshaw’s content will be taking a new direction soon.

The change might even be more radical than you think.


Here’s the full play-by-play:

The Week Ahead

After last week:

My weekly content streak now is up to 0 days (begun July 5th, 2020).

My longest streak so far was 157 days earlier in my 2020 Content Challenge, broken in Week 21.

Based on scheduling, I’m already set to extend that for 2 more.

So how close are we to winning July?

We tied up going into the second quarter.  We should be leading but it could be worse.

Eliminate the mistakes and we should be able to get some separation.

We’re way to talented not to get our act together.  Expect us to get on a roll soon.
