I am sure a lot of you are like me and tend toward more regular posting when you are participating in a blogging challenge. I am sure several of you have heard of the Ultimate Blog Challenge that does just that kind of thing on a seemingly monthly basis. For those of you who have not heard about the challenge, what is the big deal? For those that have, what other challenges are available out there?
Let me start with the Ultimate Blog Challenge. So, it is a daily post for a full month and they run it pretty much monthly, though some months are a bit more important than others. The challenge of posting daily is made a little easier if you are running short on ideas by the daily suggested post topics. The big thing I see with this challenge though, the encouragement that comes from other bloggers doing the same things. Combine that with the optional participation in the comments. It can really get things rolling on your blog, to be sure.
So what if daily posting month after month is too much for you? There are other options. I have another blog that I just starting to grow and instead of posting daily, I am instead thinking once weekly. I did a little searching and the best option I found was http://dailypost.wordpress.com/ – a wonderful site. Okay, the name is a little misleading – as there are all sorts of challenges to found on this site. Some are daily, but a lot of them are weekly or even a specific day of the week. There are also specific challenges from writing poetry weekly, posting non-fiction, or even writing a short story daily. With this site, I am sure you can find something that will fit.
