After the A to Z Blogging Challenge of April, if you’re into more month-long blogathon challenges, there are a couple of options – one running right now, another for June.
Note: I’m not doing these, although have done the Wordcount one before. I’m still recovering from the A to Z, and getting back my writing mojo.
May – Story of My Life – Blog Every Day in May
Jenni is running the Blog Every Day in May Blogathon this month. With few rules, you can join in now. Each day there is a topic which you can interpret creatively – with a basic theme for the blogathon around introducing yourself to the world. Each post / topic has a linky link to it, to link up your own post, and read others.
June – Wordcount Blogathon
Run by Michelle Rafter, this year the Wordcount Blogathon is running for its sixth year. This blogathon requires prior registration, and you will get a blog badge, and newsletter with motivational advice with signup.
The blogathon is devised to provide you with blogging experience to build your brand with, promote something with, or establish yourself as an expert. But from my early experience of the Wordcount blogathon (some years ago), the community also provides lots of help and inspiration to new bloggers just looking to start out writing a blog.
Survivors of the 30 days of posting will be entered in a raffle for writing-related prizes. Although days aren’t themed, during the month there will be certain days where topics are provided as a challenge, or guest posting amongst participant blogs is organised.
