It’s all over!
For the few of you who joined up with this year’s 20 Days of Chill writing challenge, today marks the last day. The end! Finished!
It actually went pretty fast this year, which is nice. Some of the themes were hard, some easy, some definitely off the wall.
And I’ve enjoyed reading everybody’s posts.
I love challenges for blogs as they keep people focused (usually) on trying to complete it. A lot of times, the community gives back in regard to visiting other blogs, commenting, interacting, and having fun.
I would have liked to have seen a little more interaction with this year’s challenge, I can’t lie.
Part of the challenge is getting out there and seeing other blogs. Knowing your fellow bloggers who are participating etc.
Some challenges get a ton of participation like that, some don’t. But it’s only common courtesy to do so. I don’t want to sound like I’m scolding or anything – I’m not – but I always wonder when people link up and never come back to see who else has linked up. When I’m in a challenge, I always try and get back and look the next day and see if there are any others who have linked up.
Alas, what can you do, right?
The group was small this year and unless I somehow missed something, I should have been out and commented on every single post the challenge produced. I enjoyed each minute of it.
I’ll do a wrap on the challenge in the next week or so.
But this is the end. At least for this year. Will the challenge come back again next January? It’s highly possible. But I’m going to need to get the word out there a bit more as I was kind of slow on it this year.
As the end has come, though, I’m curious how those who participated enjoyed themselves. Did you like it? What kinds of thing can I do to improve the challenge? Did you like the prompts? Should I do something different with them?
There was definitely a wide range of writing styles and interpretations, which made things interesting.
But it’s over.
It seems like it just started and now we are staring February in the face!
And allow me to plug on thing that is not at the end – the Photo Blogging Challenge. If you like challenges and photography (DSLR, film, phone, whatever) – I run a monthly photo challenge. On the first of the month, I post a theme. On the last day of the month, everybody posts a blog post and then goes and links up. In between those days, you take photos and make a post of five images to work with that theme.

I hope everybody enjoyed the 20 Days of Chill!
