Mine is! And it bothers me 🙄
So okay I’m 7 months pregnant and I can’t be into a lot of stuff because I should be taking it easy, which also means less things to blog about.
My interests of late has also gone to pregnancy specific topics from post-delivery recovery to breastfeeding … and I don’t want to blog about those 🤔
But I want to blog, because blogging is a life saver for me. Every single like and comment is precious human interaction. The act of putting my thoughts out there not only cathartic and soothing but also, undeniably fun.
Ergo, I am not having a lot of fun lately by allowing my blog to fall by the wayside.
We need a remedy.
There was a time in the not-so-distant past when I participated in a few weekly blog challenges. They were always fun, thought provoking, and guaranteed my blog had fresh content every week. They definitely get your blog out of any rut it might be in!
So off I went to WP’s Events page to see if I could fish a few that would light my fire. Here are just 3 I’m considering at the moment:
🌈 The Weekly Smile/Wednesdays – simply share something that made you smile that week.
🌈 Weekly Small Pleasures/Sundays – you guessed it 😉, it’s about the small things/pleasures that made you happy that week
🌈 Share Your World/Mondays – answer random questions each week and share your world in the process
And since cultivating an attitude of gratitude is such a huge happiness booster, I’m also quite interested in the following gratitude-focused events:
🌈 My Gratitude Project/Wednesdays
🌈 Thankful Thursday/Thursdays
🌈 Ten Things of Thankful/Saturdays and Sundays
There are definitely more events to choose from and you can even narrow them down by topic of interest, such as books, photography or running.
Craft Related Events?
I didn’t find craft related events on there though, which is a bummer because, as someone who’s into crochet and knitting, I’d like something that encourages me to create. I am aware of WIP (work in progress) Wednesdays for crocheters and knitters (only?) and FO (finish off) Fridays. Is there anything else of the kind out there?
Of course, you can always create your own blog challenges, but it’s a lot more fun if you do it with others 😊
What Blog Events Are You Participating In?
I’d like to get your suggestions if you’re a participant (or have been) in a blogging event. What was it and what did you like about it?
Also, I suspect that not all events are listed on the WP Events page and you might know about them. Do share! I might like some of them enough to join and, you’d be doing me a favor 😊
