September Beauty Blog Challenge #SBBC

Well, back in June when we did #JuneBBC it seemed like Autumn was forever away… I got caught up in the emotion of the end of #JuneBBC and agreed that I would run another similar challenge in September/October. So here we are! I’ve taken some feedback on board so there are some changes but here it is!

The challenge is to blog every day in September. There are topics/titles suggested but if you want to write something else – go for it! The topics are there as prompts for days you can’t find the inspiration to write and perhaps to push you to try a post you wouldn’t normally attempt. The aim is simply to blog daily; however you manage it!

A blog post is any post with writing that is your own. It can be posting a picture or YouTube video and writing a paragraph about what it means to you. It can be choosing a product and writing about it. There are endless possibilities and the only limit is your imagination.

One of the things that I loved about #JuneBBC was the sense of camaraderie there was between the participants. I made an effort to read every post that was tweeted using the hashtag and I retweeted as many of them as I could. It was lovely to see others doing the same. We all want more views on our blogs and by working together we can achieve this and possibly find some really great blogs to follow in the meantime. πŸ™‚

If you are planning on taking part in #SBBC please leave your name in the comments and if you would like to post about #SBBC I would really appreciate that as in my opinion the more taking part the merrier!

Feel free to add this image to any blog posts about #SBBC and to the sidebar of your blog

Saturday 28th β€œWhat was I thinking?” Where do you see yourself in 5/10/15 years time?
Sunday 29th My earliest makeup memories. An era you would love to have lived in – and why? What attracts you to that time?
Monday 30th Favourites for the month of September Reflection: how did you find #SBBC? Did you achieve your goals? What were the best/worst bits?

As you can see on each day there are two options for posts – one beauty topic and one lifestyle post. The idea is that you choose one of the two topics each day. You can choose to do all beauty posts, all lifestyle posts or mix and match the two. Part of the feedback I got on #JuneBBC was that people would like more lifestyle posts and that some people found some of the topics didn’t suit them so hopefully this gives people more options!

I’m hoping I’ve covered all of the basics but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! I’m still learning in all of this and if you have a question or query odds are that someone else is thinking the same! πŸ˜‰ You can contact me in the comments or you can get me on twitter (@girlfriday_bb)
