Tips - Blogtoberfest Day 2

Blogtoberfest 2012 has started and is being hosted this year by Kat at I Saw You Dancing. This blogging festival challenges you to blog each day in October.  This is my second year and last year when I joined, I did not even have 31 posts.
So to help others out a bit, this is what I learned from last year.
  •  31 days sure seems like a lot.  But just try it, you may like it.  You may just surprise yourself.
  • Join with Linkys on other blogs. For example: Sunday Snippets, Design Wall Monday, Modern Monday, Tuesday Treasures, Tuesday at the Table, Work in Progress Wednesday, Wordless Wednesday, Random Thursday, Thrifty Thursday, Finish it Friday.  These are just a few I could think of right off hand.  You can usually find these by reading blogs and clicking on their blog buttons.
  • Plan ahead.  I printed out a calendar of October and wrote down possible blog posts each day.  This helps me because I am visual and it showed me that I don't usually post on the weekends.  This is an area that I need to work on for this challenge.
Blogtoberfest - Day 2


  1. thanks for the tips... might just have to hunt some of those day things down!

  2. These are great tips! I completely forgot about 'wordless wednesdays.'

  3. Thanks for the tips! I am a visual person as well so making a calendar with possible blog topics sounds like a great idea. Glad you liked the bird fabric on my blog - thanks for visiting!
