26 Posts Book Blogging Challenge Introduction
Welcome to my 26 Posts Challenge idea for book bloggers! In an effort to consistantly create content on BA I thought I would take part in a 30 day blogging challenge (I have to mix it up or else I get bored), but realised I don’t want to, nor do I have the time, to create a post every single day. Instead I decided to attempt to create a post once a week with content other than a review.
At first I thought why not do that for 30 weeks and then realised that was close to six months, so why not 26 weeks instead? Then I thought what if other bloggers want to have a challenge to keep up with blogging, but also don’t want to blog every single day? This is why I have come up with the 26 Posts Book Blog Challenge and am sharing it with everyone. This challenge has a focus on books, book blogs, and personal topics scattered througout.
How it Will Work
If anyone else would like to join in than here’s how I’ll be going about it;
- Topics: Prepared and shared beforehand (all at the end of this post). You don’t have to wait for me to post to prepare!
- My Posts: My posts for the topic will go up every Sunday.
- Your Posts: You can go ahead and post your topic answers any time during the week after my post or wait, with bated breath, to share on the same day as me.
- Sharing: If you want to share a link to your post feel free to link up in the comments.
- An Important Side Note: Please refrain from targeting individuals, bullying, or slandering in your posts. Share your opinions, but keep it diplomatic if anything negative comes up so this can be, and stay, a fun challenge.
Easy! I think I’ve covered everything… My first post will be going up on the 14th of April, so if you want to join in, you can start preparing!
