I have signed up for the Blogging from A-Z Challenge, a blog challenge that starts with a topic of your choice beginning with A on the 1st of April and ending with a Z on the 30th April (skipping Sundays!) I took part last year and really enjoyed it so have decided to participate again this year too! I have a theme all ready to go and am drafting my introduction post this week to be ready for the last day in March!
I love a blog challenge and have tried my hand, so far, at Blogtober, Blogmas and Blogging from A-Z. I am considering taking part in NaNoWriMo this year instead of doing Blogtober and Blogmas, or maybe even doing all 3 but that’s a long way off! I love that these challenges can boost the sense of community, encourage us to support other bloggers/writers, introduce us to new blogs, push our skills, encourage us to write better and more engaging content, learn more and have fun along the way. Another great thing is that it gives us the freedom to try something new with our blogs without the commitment of making a full change, we can test things out, see if we like them and if ourselves and our readers like them we can use them in the future, the same goes for trying something and then it not being as successful as we thought it was, we can drop it for the time being.
Are you taking part in any blog challenges this year? Let me know in the comments as I’d love to know your thoughts on blog challenges and the ones you do (or don’t!) take part in!
