Hey friends! I've got a fun announcement today that I sure hope you'll enjoy and take part in with me...looking at you fellow bloggers!
For the month of November (beginning this coming Monday 11/3), I'm hosting a "Blogathon" challenge to blog (almost) everyday of the month! Why in November, you ask? Why not in one of those slow months like June or July???
Well, here's why. November and December are my highest traffic months...and I'm guessing it's similar for you too...due to gift guides, holiday-themed posts, and random traffic from Google or Pinterest searches. So WHY NOT capitalize on that boost of traffic by blogging each day, upping your writing game, and hopefully hanging onto some of those new readers that come your way?!?
Secondly, we all need to just breathe a bit and reflect on our lives this time of year. The holidays come fast and furious, and if you're like me, they whizz by leaving me wistful for something to hold on to. Don't let this busy month fly by in whirl...let's intentionally put some memories, thoughts, stories into our blogging to enrich this season and help us remember what it's all about. I promise it will be FUN!
So YOU IN???
Here are the prompts below (excluding weekends). Of course you don't have to blog every single day, but I'll be here doing my thing all November and I'd love to have you on board! Make sure to share your posts using the hashtag #NovemberBlogathon (because frankly I'm too lazy for a linkup) and tag me please (because that's good manners)...bonus points if you retweet/share friends' posts!
