Blogtober is a blog challenge to post every day during the month of October. Some blogging communities write about the same topics and link up with other bloggers. Each year has its own hashtag and last year was #Blogtober20. You can find blogger’s communities using these hashtags. This year will be #Blogtober21. If you join this blog challenge and use this hashtag, your article is easier to share on social media.
Blogoween is also the October blog challenge. The difference between Blogtober and Blogoween is the topics. Blogoween is focused on Halloween-themed such as Halloween costumes, party ideas, recipes, crafts, home decor, etc.
Blogmas is a challenge to produce 25 blog posts until Christmas day. It’s like an advent calendar. It is generally focused on Christmas-themed, but some people write about winter and other celebrations things. I personally like to read the “reflection of the year” and “goal setting for next year” posts in December.
20 Books of Summer
You’ll post one book review every day for 20 days. It can be the months of June, July, or August. This is not strictly a blog challenge. You can do it on social media too. Introduce your favorite books and write reviews.
20 Books for Christmas
It’s very similar to the “20 Books of Summer” challenge. You’ll post one book review every day for 20 days in December. Again, this is not strictly a blog challenge. You can do it on social media too. If you want to monetize this challenge, sign up for an Amazon affiliate.
Money Diary is originally hosted by Refinery29. Log your spending over seven days and report the details on the blog. Some people do this challenge like “Weekend Money Diary” and log their spending over the weekend instead of 7 days. It’s really up to you.
Happy Monday is originally started by Little Miss Katy back in 2014. She wrote about 10 things that have made her smile every Monday. She thought it is the BEST way to start her week! Happy Monday series had an amazing reaction from her blog readers and became popular in the blogging community.
