What are you doing this October?


Yes, Blogtober 2016 is here!!  I have taken the reins from last year's host:
 Krafty Karen's Fantastic Place.
I can only dream of matching Karen's organisational skills, but I will try!  Here's the skinny:

The usual goal is to blog every day in October.  Simple, right?  Well, not for a lot of people, because of Real Life.  So here's my twist on Blogtober: Set your own goal!  Not everyone is in a position where they can blog every single day.  So if you're new at this, how about dipping your toe in and setting a goal to post something every Monday in October?  Or any other day of the week that you feel you could set aside some blogging time.  Or perhaps you're a M-W-F type of person, or a Weekends Only blogger.  All are welcome here!! 

Here is what I suggest.

1. First and foremost, pre-register here using the linky! Put the name of your blog and your blog URL in the simple form and submit. (To clarify- your general blog URL, not a specific post URL.)  You may need to prove you aren't a robot, but other than that, I don't foresee any curve-balls coming at you.

2. On the first of October, or your first opportunity in October, write a quick intro and what your Blogtober goal is.  Every day?  Once a Week? A set number of entries within the month?  Whatever it is, share it with us!

3. Each time you write a post, put a link in to this post, so that others who read your blog can blog-hop and see who else is playing!  Also, it will give your readers the opportunity to register too!  Registration will be open all month, so no one will miss out if they are late to the party!

4. At the end of October, review your goal that you set at the beginning!  Did you make it?  It doesn't matter if you don't, the main thing is that you tried.  Maybe you found that you enjoyed making that time to blog.  Maybe you discovered that you want to do even more!  Maybe you realised that blogging isn't for you, and that's ok too, but the point is, we all tried something!  Let's feel good about that.

So, without any further ado, here is the Blogtober 2016 Linky!  Roll up!  Register now, and perhaps you'd like to comment what your goal will be!

Happy Bloghopping,
Sy. (Karmacraft)

I'm going to aim to do four blog posts per week as a minimum - let's see how I get on.

I have mentioned this challenge in the rubber addicts group on Facebook - have asked permission on two different scrapbooking groups to see it I can post it there.

Thank you for taking it on for me xxx
