My friend and I got involved in the April A-Z blogging challenge and it motivated us to post 26 blogs. Now we find ourselves on April 30th worried all of that momentum will go to waste. But fear not, we came up with a great idea, the May Day Blogging Challenge.
What is it?
A way to make sure we continue writing throughout the next month because we need to be held accountable.
How does it work?
Using http://www.onthisday.com/ find an event from history for each day of the month and use that for an inspiration for our daily post. It can be anything from History, Music, Film & TV, and Sports. And of course creative license is allowed- to tie back to the historical event in any way we find relevant.
Just be sure to include the date, year, and link.
In honor of Memorial Day, posts are not required on Mondays to allow a day to recharge.
What is the format?
It can be any length but should be fairly short. It can be a poem, story, an essay, a rant, and editorial, etc. Posts should use the hashtag #MDBC2016 on social media.
What happens if we don’t post?
Absolutely nothing, except we will be disappointed with ourselves and each of us is required to make the other feel bad if this occurs.
