The Big Bad Blogger Challenge 2009 Kick Off Post!

Welcome to the start of the Big Bad Blogger Challenge 2009!! If you are a veteran of last year's challenge, welcome back! If this is your first challenge, you're going to love it!!

The BBBC started as a way to give SL bloggers a little kickstart, and give people something to read. But it turned into a great sharing opportunity! We just had an amazing time last year and I know this year will be even better!! Just to save my fingers, I'll copy & paste most of last year's rules. :)


The Big Bad Blogger Challenge for June: Update your blog every day for one week starting June 14th, and the last challenge post will be June 19th.

Now don't get scared! I can hear the thoughts racing now.

"I can't update every day!" Sure, you can!!

"I don't have time!" You do. I see some of you in world for hours at a time, and not for business reasons.

"I won't have anything to write about!" Yes, you will. Every night before I go to bed, I'll throw out a question that you can answer in your blog if you choose to answer it. If not, just write about what you did that day in SL, or what you saw, or what topics interest you.

Your blog posts do NOT have to be well thought out and constructed professional posts, they don't have to be very long at all, and I think a lot of you are overthinking your blogs, which is why you do not update. Believe it or not, people enjoy reading just little personal things. Almost all of my posts are unplanned, and I write the way I would sit and have a conversation with almost anyone. I personally would LOVE to get to know some of you better through your blogging. Think of this as a writing exercise, like the busy work that your English or Creative Writing teacher may have given you, or like NaNoWriMo. There's no prize at the end, except for knowing you took on a challenge that really may be a challenge for some of you.

So there you have it, The Big Bad Blogger Challenge. Are you up for it? :)

If so, please sign up to this post with your blog URL so I can add it to the special BBBC Blogroll!!

Remember, you can always use your own topics to write about, but if you're stumped, here is your first topic. Since last year we had a few RL bloggers join in [you are always welcome to!], the first topic won't be really Second Life related.

How long have you been a blogger? How has it enriched your life?

BBBC 2009!! .... and go!!

It's a step away from my normal topic of places to visit in SL, but stepping out of norms can be a good thing.
