I did quite a lot of 30 days writing challenges so far, and I think a good number of them were on Steemit. 10 years ago, when I started to blog, things were very different and I really needed the motivation (not to mention that my English was absolutely horrific, so I had to step up my game really fast). So putting together 30 days writing challenges on various topics was a really good way to produce content consistently and to hone my blogging skills. In time, it really paid out.
Also, when I joined Steemit, 2 years ago, I decided to give it a consistent try, not just a "hit-n-run" article, so I started with a 30 days writing challenge. To this very day, I congratulate myself for that decision.
I will post each day an article on a specific topic. The main tag will be #challenge30days.
The topic will be more or less random each day, but there should be a "journal-like" touch to it. I still ponder if it will be a journal style, or just random stories, but at least there will be some reference to the previous post each day.
If you want to join, you have to write each day. You also have to use the tag #challenge30days, otherwise you won't qualify for the prizes.
Of course there will be prizes, what would you think?
I will upvote each day 3 posts at full power (100%). There is no other reason for upvoted other than me liking that post, so I may end up upvoting an author multiple times, over multiple days.
Previous challenges were all very well received, for many reasons. It's not only the habit of writing each day, which gets strengthened, but also your social skills. You will probably meet people that you didn't even know they exist on Steemit.
If you know people that would like to participate in this, feel free to resteem, or otherwise let them know about it.
Why On October 15th?
Well, because starting October 15th I will be in Spain, where I'm planning to spend (at least) the next year.
The bigger plan is to eventually set base there for good, but experience taught me to start slow, without big words, and adjust as I go along. We already did a test in the spring, by spending 2 weeks in Valencia, and we both decided to move there in the autumn. And, there you go, it's autumn in this part of the world now.
I believe this challenge will ground me enough to keep me focused, while still not being a very time consuming thing to do.
In other words, just what the doctor ordered for "the accommodation depression" - which, if you wonder, it's a real thing.
