In a moment of sheer panic, I decided to give the 2016 Blog Ahead challenge a go. I don't know how long I'll last, but I'll give it the 'ol college try! Okay, Crystal... Think positive! The idea behind the Blog Ahead challenge (hosted by the lovely Anna over at Herding Cats & Burning Soup) is to build up a stock pile of blog posts for when you're just not feelin' it. I wanted to give it a shot last year, but didn't have the courage. Since I've changed the outlook on my blog, I thought this would be the perfect time to try it. Plus I've hit more than one blogging slump this year and I'd like to have a small selection of pre-made posts to pull from should the slump return.
I am going to do things a little bit differently, though. The goal is to have at least 30 blog posts completed by the end of October. Since I typically don't do discussion posts (that will change, though), my goal is to have at least 30 posts set-up for future reviews. For example, I have some Christmas reviews to do in November, so I'm going to get those posts set-up and ready to go when I'm ready to finish my review. I also have several Christmas themed posts planned that I would love to get done ahead of time.
So, without further ado... Here's the 411 on the 2016 Blog Ahead challenge.
Begins-- Oct 1
Ends-- Oct 31
Who Can Join
Anyone who has a blog.
Blog genre/topic doesn't matter.
You can be a reviewer or an author, brand new, been at it for years, etc.
Everyone is welcome!
The goal is to hunker down for the month of October and increase the number of scheduled posts you have by 30.
Ex. On Oct 1st if you have 5 posts scheduled you would then need to end the month with 35 posts scheduled.
Whatever number you're starting with just add 30 to get your final goal.
Good luck & let's get bloggin'!
