If you’re looking for something to give your blog a boost, the #bloglikecrazy challenge may be exactly what you need.
What is #bloglikecrazy?
Each year in November I challenge my fellow bloggers to publish a new blog post every day for 30 days. I call this challenge #bloglikecrazy. Throughout the month, I’ll share blogging tips and post ideas using the hashtag #bloglikecrazy. And if you use the #bloglikecrazy hashtag when you share your posts on social media I’ll help promote your posts, too.
Who can participate in #bloglikecrazy?
In 2012 I started the #bloglikecrazy challenge on my personal blog but the women of See Jane Write were so excited about it that it quickly became something I started hosting for the women of SJW. Then word started to get out and soon women and men all over the country were participating. You don’t have to be a See Jane Write member to do the #bloglikecrazy challenge. To participate all you need is a blog.
Why should I #bloglikecrazy?
I’ll be honest, I originally started #bloglikecrazy because November can be a lonely time for non-fiction writers. National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) is also in November, which means all my fiction writer friends are busy trying to write a 50,000-word novel in a month and so no one can come out to play! So, I decided to create a writing challenge for non-fiction writers who blog.
But I believe blogging every day for 30 days will boost your creativity, your community, and your consistency. I break down each of these here.
