The 2016 Blog-tember Challenge

That's right, y'all. It's back again! No matter how random my weekly posting has been over the past two years, each September I've gotten my stuff together (and so many of you have, too!) and write every day for ONE MONTH. Call me crazy, but even with my first year of teaching starting next week, I'm doing it again, and I'm inviting you to join in with me! To what, you may ask? 

  The 3rd Annual Blog-tember Challenge! 
September 1 - 30, 2016

The Blog-tember Challenge is a daily link up that will begin September 1st. That's only three short weeks away, y'all! Below I have provided a prompt for every day of the upcoming month and each day you will be able to link up with everyone participating. Typically, you link a blog post, but if you don't have a blog and want to join via instagram you totally can! (I still HIGHLY encourage the blog portion though! It's more... well, challenging!) It's mid-August, I know, but I wanted to share these ahead of time so you can write whenever you'd like! I'm doing my best to get 75% pre-scheduled because, ya know, September's gonna be crazy. #firstyearteacherprobs

Thursday, Sept. 29: Your Fab Five. Share your favorite bloggers/besties and tell us what you love about them! Share a link and give a shout out.
Friday, Sept. 30: Picture this, you've been stopped on the street by the photographer of Humans of New York, and he asks, "What advice would you give to a large group of people?" Share a picture of yourself along with the advice.

And now the invitation. Won't you join me for the #blogtemberchallenge?  I know the idea of posting every day can seem overwhelming, but with a little planning it can be totally manageable. Feel free to follow one of the prompts, all of the prompts, or none of them. Some have followed the challenge Monday through Friday, taking weekends off, but do whatever you like! The main goal is to get us all writing together, and we may as well learn more about our favorite bloggers and get to know new ones while we do it!

There really are no rules to this. I have provided a button that links back to the prompt page for ease of access, and I will offer a link-up at the end of each of my posts. If you share your posts on Twitter or Instagram, be sure to hashtag #blogtemberchallenge so we can all follow along! If you're in, let your readers know what's coming up and give them the opportunity to join in as well.

Report back here on Thursday, September 1, with your first update!
