Blogtoberfest Day #1: Set an intention
Welcome to Blogtoberfest12!
If you haven't signed up and/or grabbed yourself a blog button, it's not too late. You can join in at any time throughout the month.
Today, if you're wondering how you might get started, how about setting an intention for the month?
It would be as simple as: I want to try and blog every day for 31 days.
Or: I want to check out new blogs and meet likeminded souls.
Or it could be as challenging as: I have this creative project and I want to use this as an opportunity to stay accountable, get some feedback and get it finished!
Or even: I have no fixed plan, I'm just looking forward to seeing what happens. I'm open to surprises!
For me, the chance to host Blogtoberfest was too good to pass up. I was so honoured that Cathy asked me to babysit this festival while she took a break.
I see this as an opportunity to connect with a whole new blogging community, deepen the connection with bloggers I already know by inviting them to contribute guest posts, and step up to the creative challenge to provide a creative prompt every day for 31 days for those who might be needing a little inspiration.
So every day, there will be a new creative prompt here @ I Saw You Dancing, for those of you who are looking for an idea for something to post. But, of course, you are warmly welcome to post whatever you like! You are in no way constrained to what is suggested here... but we are always here if you need us.
Whatever happens, please make sure that the intention you set is gentle and has enough elasticity to withstand whatever life might throw your way this month! If you don't manage to blog every day, or don't get around to visiting every one who is participating, it really is OK.
If you find yourself off course, just stop. Take a deep breath. Do what you can. And know that whatever you do is perfectly good enough.
So happy to have you here on the journey!
