October has begun, which means so has my – hopefully successful – attempt at Blogtober 2018.
As this is my first post of the challenge, I thought I’d use it as a way to explain to people what’s happening as a few of you may be seeing others writing about it too.
So I’m just going to answer a few generic questions about what’s going on with my blog over the next 31 days.
What is Blogtober?
Blogtober is essentially a month where you upload a blog post everyday. There is no theme or rules for the month, just that you post every. single. day.
Some people like to include an Autumnal or Halloween vibe to their posts, which is what I’ll be doing, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to!
Stick to what you’re comfortable writing about and go from there.
Why am I doing it?
Personally, I’m doing it to challenge myself and my blog. I find it hard to be constantly engaging with my it and others, but this month I’ve decided to dedicate the whole month of October to it.
It’s going to be a month of me appreciating writing and blogging as much as I did at the beginning without having to worry about numbers or deadlines, because everyday will be a new deadline for me!
What am I hoping to get out of Blogtober?
I’m really hoping that I’ll fall back in love with my blog and prove to myself that I am still dedicated to it.
Recently, it’s been a struggle to push my blog and to find the time to put in the effort into my content and also into my engagement with others.
Hopefully all of this will work out for me and that I stick to the full 31 days because if I don’t I’ll be a tad disappointed. But as long as I stay positive and on top of the work load then I think I’ll do just fine.
As a final note on my first successful upload of the month, I just wanted to say good luck to all of the other bloggers taking part in the challenge and I’m looking forward to reading as many posts as I can!
Love you all X
