#2167413 by Emily


*Pencil* Blogs will only be judged and prizes awarded during Official Months (usually every other month). Unofficial Months are open for everyone to practice and have fun! (Official Months are fun too, we promise! *Laugh* )

*Pencil* This competition is open to blogs of all ratings; however, please keep the forum posts clean and respectful.

*Pencil* Daily prompts will be emailed to participating members ("Current Challengers") of the "30-Day Bloggers Group. Prompts will also be posted in this forum in the evening of the day before they are due.

*Pencil* When your blog entry is done, please post the link to it in the forum, using {entry:######}.

*Pencil* You should post your blog entry responding to the prompt between midnight and midnight WDC time on the day it is due (timeliness is a factor in judging). Please try to avoid posting early. Late entries will be accepted, but please note your score for that day may be lower.

*Pencil* Commenting on fellow challengers' blogs is not optional. Blog comments are an integral part of this Blog Challenge and the blogging community itself. If you never comment on another challengers blog, you will be disqualified. This doesn't necessarily mean you have to comment on every challengers' blog entry, but you should aim for at least a 1:1 ratio (one comment on another contestant's blog per day you write a post of your own).

*Pencil* Prompts during Official Months will generally follow these categories, though be prepared for modifications at the Host's discretion *Smirk*:
         *Bulletgr*MOTIVATION MONDAYS!: We'll discuss quotes attributed to people from all walks of life, and you're encouraged to share quotes related to the day's topic.
         *Bulletgr*TALK TUESDAYS!: Prompts will encourage a more opinionated, personal response. Get to know your fellow competitors...make sure you're commenting!
         *Bulletgr*WAR CHEST WEDNESDAYS!:  A prompt from the pool of challenger-submitted prompts known as The Challenge War Chest.
         *Bulletgr*Thursday is THE WILDCARD ROUND!: Anything can happen! Be prepared...and you might win a random prize! It could be Gift Points, raffle tickets, or even a Merit Badge!
         *Bulletgr*FUN FACT FRIDAY!: I'll provide you with a random fact, and you give us your take on it. Feel free to share a random fact of your own as well!
         *Bulletgr*CREATION SATURDAY!: A creative writing prompt from the War Chest will be used. Challengers are encouraged to write a poem or story.
         *Bulletgr*THE SUNDAY NEWS!: A chance to wrap up the week and prepare for the week ahead. What did you write? What did you learn? What's the best thing that happened in your personal life? Encourage a discussion between your fellow bloggers.
