Wow – it’s finally here! This has been an amazing day as I have spent half of it reading the #SBBC posts of others. So many people are taking part that I have to be honest and say I am completely overwhelmed! It’s not just the #irishbbloggers that have gotten behind this either as I know we have some from further afield taking part too. I honestly can’t believe that an idea that came to me back in May has so quickly spiralled to something this big!
I’ve explained a bit about my beauty challenges in past posts. This all started when I did Blog every Day May – a lifestyle blog challenge run by Rosallium. It was the first challenge that I completed and I really saw the difference it made to me, and to my blog! I felt more organised and focussed and I was seeing a large increase in views and followers when I was less sporadic in my posting. I decided to challenge myself to do a beauty post every day in June and so #JuneBBC was born… Out of that came the idea to run another blog challenge with some changes made and here is #SBBC!
What do I want out of #SBBC?
I think as the organiser I end up with a very different experience of #SBBC to the rest of the bloggers taking part. Each day I will be trying to read, retweet, share and comment on blogs of the other participants – as well as trying to blog daily! I’ve recently completed over 100 days of blogging daily so I know I can do that bit… I now need to work on other elements while maintaining my consistency in writing. I want to use this opportunity to give others the postive boost that #BEDM gave to me… And maybe they’ll even promote me in turn!
#SBBC is a chance to discover new blogs and hopefully new blogger friends. It is an opportunity to interact with new people (as well as the ‘old’ friends I have made) and share what blogging means to us. I love the camaraderie that came with #JuneBBC and it is great to see that some of the people that did that challenge have also joined with #SBBC.
I never thought that #JuneBBC would take off like it did and now #SBBC seems set to eclipse it totally. Who knows – these blog challenges might become an ongoing thing!
Are you doing #SBBC? What do you like (or dislike) about blog challenges?
