DAY 1 Blogtober, What is it and what to expect from me. Ideas and Special October dates to remember.
Updated: Feb 19, 2020
I took up the challenge last year to take part in Blogtober. I challenged myself to post on a regular basis ( Everyday ) the whole month of October. It may sound crazy, but I honestly really enjoyed the challenge.
What is Blogtober?
Blogtober is a challenge that quite a lot of bloggers & vloggers set themselves for the month of October. The challenge is to create new content for the full 31 days of October! I did this last year and I think I only missed a few days due to life!
There are no official rules to follow, you don’t have to post everyday if you don’t want to.
I want to blog on a more regular basis, but life always seems to get in the way. I want to be more consistent with my blogging and now that other life challenges are out of the way for good I can now focus on my blog.
My Ideas and what my schedule is.
So this year I have scheduled some of my posts to make sure I don’t miss any days. I now home educate all three of my children so as you can imagine some days are hectic.
I am going to try and stick to the below schedule but some things may change. I also like to post more than once a day so I will be taking part with Blogtober and occasionally will be posting something that has nothing to do with October.
