Welcome to the start of the Big Bad Blogger Challenge 2010!! If you're a challenge veteran, welcome back! If this is your first challenge, you're going to love it!!
The BBBC started in 2008 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've really had a fun time the past couple of years! Just to save my fingers [yet again!], I'll copy & paste most of the previous years' rules. :)
The Big Bad Blogger Challenge for June: Update your blog every day for one week starting June 13th, and the last challenge post will be June 18th.
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. 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. And if for some reason you can't complete the challenge, at least you gave it a try!
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!! If you don't sign up on this post, I will get confused and I want all of the challengers to be added to the blogroll, which stays up on my blog for the rest of the year.
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 completely Second Life related.
Today's Topic: Why did you become a blogger? How has it enriched your life?
BBBC 2010!! Ready...set...GO!!!!
