Sparky’s Blog Challenge

July 20, 2013

It’s time for a round of the Sparky Blog Challenge.  I know it’s been a while, but several of us are feeling the need to be more consistent, and so starting Sunday July 21 we’ll be blogging daily for the next week.

In the Sparky Blog Challenge the idea is to post each day.  A post must consist of minimum of at least three sentences, unless you post a photograph, at which point there is a one sentence minimum.  It’s fine to post more, but since the idea is to become more consistent, we don’t want content to be a burden at this point.  Just write something.

That means that even if I have nothing to say, I’ve got to post anyway.  Sorry, Sparky Nation…you may just have to listen to me take three sentences to say absolutely nothing.  Consider it training in case I should ever decide to try my hand at politics.

If you’d like to join the Sparky Blog Challenge, respond in the comment section of this post or request to join us at Sparky’s Blog Challenge Facebook Group  and I’ll add you to the blog roll and approve you for the group.

      Awesome! If you do Facebook, search for Sparky’s Blog Challenge and request membership if you like. I can’t add someone I’m not already friends with unless they request it. We encourage one another there and we’ll be starting a new week of the Challenge tomorrow!

    I am interested, but do we have to post on Facebook?

    • December 1, 2013 9:12 am

      No, you don’t have to. There is a closed Facebook group and we post for each other, but not everyone posts publicly. You can skip the group, join the group but don’t share links to your posts, join and share with the group but not publicly, or post everywhere. It’s really up to you to determine how much community you’d like in it. :)

          No problem! The “rules” of the challenge are in this post. Beyond that, just tag your posts “Sparky’s Blog Challenge” so that others can find them easily. Welcome, and happy challenging!

      If you’d like the support and accountability of a group, find “Sparky’s Blog Challenge” on Facebook and ask to be added. If you don’t do FB or don’t want to be part of the group, then you can simply decide on a weekly basis if you’re going to participate and tag your posts with Sparky’s Blog Challenge when you do. Welcome to the challenge!
