Now open for January's official round!
CURRENT COMPETITORS! Click HERE to go straight to the forum.
NEW / INTERESTED BLOGGERS: Please read the Contest rules in this forum first. Thanks! Bigsmile

"I enjoy reading the blog entries and seeing how they relate to one another. Rotating the initiator of the entries gives a wide variety of topics and directions, which is wonderful for those of us who like to read and follow the prompts from one blog to the next. I like that you have an emergency blog title for use in case the initiator doesn't show. Sometimes life gets in the way so it's good to know there is an alternative and nobody needs to feel like they are letting the other bloggers down. Thanks for encouraging members to Blog On! *Smile*" - Diane

Wildcard Mondays!: To free a day of the week up for some more interesting prompts, Mondays will now be quite unpredictable! *Bigsmile* Prepare to think on your toes! *Smirk* Prompts will be a mix of anything I can think up. You may be prompted to write persuasive articles, quote analysis pieces, current world event summaries, or general writing adages.

Two-fer Tuesdays: Share an item or blog entry from any of the eligible competitors this month. Include a review link for bonus points.

War Chest Wednesdays:  A prompt from our pool of challenger prompts known as The Challenge War Chest.

Opinion Thursdays: An opinion piece prompt also from the War Chest. Known colloquially as "Opinion Thursday".

Funny Friday: A funny prompt, usually from the War Chest.

Creation Saturday: A creative writing prompt from the War Chest will be used. Challengers are encouraged to write a poem or story.

The Sunday News!: Pick a random article from the headlines and talk about it. Share your opinions and feelings about it. Encourage a conversation.


*Crayons2* Daily prompts will be private mailed to group members of "30-Day Bloggers Group" . Prompts will also be posted in this forum.

*Crayons3* One must write a blog entry about the prompt within 24 hours after the prompt is posted (timeliness is a factor in judging).

*Crayons4* When the blog entry is done, the blogger must post the link of his/her blog to
the forum, using {entry: }

*Crayons5* Commenting on fellow challengers blogs is NOT optional.  Blog comments are an integral part of this Blog Challenge. If you NEVER comment on another challengers blog you will end up being disqualified. This doesn't neccessarily mean you have to comment on EVERY challengers' blog entry but you should aim for a 1:1 ratio. 1 blog entry, 1 blog comment per day.


I believe that the prizes are just some sort of gravy; it's just an appetizer. The real prize for the winner is the fulfillment that comes when the whole challenge is completed.

*Idea* BUT! if you want to win ...*Idea*

*Idea* Impressive and prompt blog responses.

*Idea* In any cases of work-related or emergency reasons we allow 5 non-consecutive late entries.

*Idea* Responses to prompt should be in a separate post. No two prompt answers in a single post.

*Idea* You MUST comment on other challengers blog entries!
