Introducing #Blogtober16

September 20, 2016Mandi Morrison
I have seen a couple of people mention Blogtober and I thought it sounded like a great idea, so after asking if any Bloggers would like to take part, I had a great response, so this is officially the start of #Blogtober16!
For anyone wishing to join in, #Blogtober16 is a post a day for the 31 days of October, each day there will be a theme for you to write a blog post, in any way that you wish.
To give you a bit of a head start, here is the list
Each day of October I will add a new linky, so even if you don’t manage to write a post every day of October, if you are in the process of giving birth, or suffering from sleep deprivation due to a little one, feel free to add any that fit or if you get time to write one, the linky will stay open for a couple of weeks for those of us who tend to be running behind (it’s usually me, hence why I am ensuring its on time, by actually hosting it!).
I have included a funky little badge to add to your posts, that way it might signpost some other lovely bloggers.
I shall be commenting on every post that links up, although I can’t promise it will be done immediately, but it will get done, there is absolutely no pressure for anyone to comment on the posts, but if you have a couple of spare minutes I am sure other bloggers would appreciate sharing the blogger love x
And that’s about it, you have ten days to start thinking about your posts, or get super organised and schedule appropriate ones (if you already have them).
I shall be sending a LARGE bar of chocolate to everyone that actually manages to post all 31 days, if you are a blogger and would like to take part, you can join the facebook group here
Much Love
Mandi xxxxxxx

    Wow! What a huge project! I’m traveling in October and there is no way I could actually do this, but I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

    This is such a challenge, I’ve done a daily challenge before but yeah you’ve definitely got to keep up with things like this. Best to do as much in advance lol, Good luck!

    That really is a challenge I’d struggle to write a post a day. Good luck x

    This sounds like a fab challenge. I have lots of posts already planned so would not be able to do this completely but will look out for your posts.

    I still doing Blog-a-Day during September so I know how difficult it can be. Especially when you’ve got other things to do! I wish you the best of luck with Blogtober and can’t wait to find out all sorts!
