CURRENT COMPETITORS! Click HERE to go straight to the forum.
NEW / INTERESTED BLOGGERS: Please read the Contest rules in the 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*" - Devilish Diane

"The blogging challenge is back to life. It's no longer just the 7-Day Blogging Contest, but the more exciting and rewarding 30 Day Blogging Challenge. This contest has been on WDC since 2008. Many were inspired and motivated into the blogging world by it. I am personally the product of this challenge. I came to know a few of our fellow WdC members closely through it. I was able to relate to their experiences, and of course, build friendships."-Earl Pablo-

Wildcard Mondays!: To free a day of the week up for some more interesting prompts, Mondays will now be a 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.

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

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 Resonance: Review your peers. Tell us your favorite blog entry from your fellow challengers from the preceding week and, importantly, why. Share also with us which of your own blog posts you think stands out.


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

*Crayons3* One must write a blog entry about the prompt within 24 hours after the prompt is posted.

*Crayons4* When the blog entry is done, a 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!

This August Unofficial Month Edition was handled by our guest judges and fellow bloggers - Lyn Aspiring Witch with CHAMP!! .

The forum is open for anybody to post entries, but try to keep outside promotions to a minimum Smile Thanks!
