The #2014BloggerChallenge


Challenges are like buses for me - you wait ages for one and then two come along at once! This one is by the lovely Gaby at Another Girly Blog (who also recently very kindly nominated me for a Sunshine Award - more on that soon!) and, as the name suggests, is a challenge for 2014. So at least it gives me a few months to prepare for it...

It's hard to believe we're only six weeks away from Christmas, and in less than two months it'll be 2014. Next year is a massive one for me and my family, with my wedding in November, both my parents turning 60 and my youngest nephew starting school, and as I'm already thinking about New Year's Resolutions I wanted to make one that next year is going to be the year I have a really good go at getting my blog off the ground. As many of you know I've blogged on and off for years but it's only recently I've got involved in things like blogging chats and tagged posts, and I'm hoping that a challenge like this will not only help me stick with blogging but also increase traffic and help me continue to discover new blogs and meet so many amazing fellow bloggers!

The #2014BloggerChallenge basically involves writing two blog posts a month on a range of different topics, with the aim of getting you writing about things you wouldn't normally blog about. The post will go live during the first and third weeks of the month and the challenge is open to everyone, whatever your blog is about.

I'm really looking forward to this challenge as I always like to have new things to write about so hopefully being involved will give me lots of new ideas! Plus it's always lovely to get chatting to fellow bloggers - I've met some lovely people and found some amazing blogs through doing similar things so I'm hoping this will establish lots more connections.

If you'd like to take part then all you have to do is email Gaby at anothergirlyblg@gmail.com with your blog URL, email address and name. The first topics will be launching at the end of the year so I look forward to seeing you there - I can't wait to read everyone's posts!
