In 2016 I started to host Blogtober, if you’re not familiar with it, its a blogging challenge for the month of October, a post a day for 31 days, each day an amazing group of bloggers post their thoughts, feelings and day to day lives, then all link up together to show support and to encourage each other to finish the challenge, all 31 days of it!!
I loved the challenge and the community spirit, something that sometimes feels a little lost with so many bloggers now writing and trying to get noticed, when I first started blogging back in 2011, it was more a day to day account of life, in my case a 6 week old baby, plus 5 more children aged under 13, as the years have gone on I have been lucky to turn this ‘blogging thing’ into a full time job, but I sometimes miss the everyday blurb that I used to spill onto the page, without worrying about seo, tags, keywords, word count and the writing tone for the campaign, so Blogtober gives me that feeling of togetherness and friendship, many of the bloggers taking part were with me during my first year hosting, and have stayed.
I took a break from hosting last year, but at the beginning of September the call of the challenge became too loud to ignore, so here I am back for 2020, with a great list of prompts (well I think so anyway) its all about Pop Tunes this year, to be interpreted as you wish!
If you would like to take part in the challenge, there is a Blogtober20 Facebook Group you can join, and everyday I will provide a linkup for you to add your post to, for everyone in the Blogtober20 Community to show love and support.
There’s even a funky little blog badge for you to add to the bottom of your post so that everyone can find all of the posts.
