Anyone who has ever been blogging for quite a while would know that WordPress is filled with many blogging challenges.
What I like about challenges is that they will either make you or break you (They allow you to find out what you are truly made of).
There is another blogging challenge taking place ― one that is in the form of a blogathon; it is called, “Blogtober.”
What Is Blogtober?
To put it simply, Blogtober is a special monthly challenge; one in which the blogger publishes blog posts every single day for the month of October (Thirty-one gruesome days of self-punishment).
I predict that many bloggers are going to fail miserably.
I also predict that some bloggers will come out triumphantly at the end of it all.
To those of you who have chosen to participate in this year’s Blogtober event, I would like to say to you, “I wish you the best of luck!”
What Is My Reason For Not Caring About Blogtober?
I really could not care about Blogtober because I am already publishing content on my blog on a daily basis.
Therefore, publishing a blog post daily is not challenging for me.
The truth is that I can publish two blog posts daily without even breaking a sweat (I am psychologically conditioned to write articles whenever I am seated in front of my laptop computer).
Back in August of this year, I regained the habit of blogging daily when I volunteered to participate in Blaugust (Which is writing and publishing blog posts every day in August).
And, those of you who have been following Renard’s World would know that I never stopped blogging daily after completing the Blaugust challenge.
Blogging Daily Is Nothing New For Me
When I was over on Blogger (also known as Blogspot), I used to publish content on my blog daily.
Luckily for me, I always had something to publish.
The truth is that with a bit of determination and practice anyone can publish content on their blog daily.
So, in all honesty, publishing content on one’s blog on a daily basis is nothing extraordinary (It just appears that way to the person who cannot see themselves publishing content on their own blog daily).
For Some People, Blogging Daily Can Do More Harm Than Good
Most of you are aware of the fact that blogging daily is not for everyone.
As a matter of fact, a lot of bloggers who forced themselves to blog daily ended up being severely burnt out in the end.
On a positive note, not everyone who blogs daily is going to suffer a burnout.
Also, every single blogger on the face of the Earth should have an idea of how much blogging they can carry out without burning themselves out.
By the way, my article, Have You Found Your Publishing Sweet Spot? will help you to figure out the right type of blogging schedule for you (That is provided that you have not figured it out as yet).
The last thing that I want is for someone to participate in Blogtober and say to themselves, “To hell with blogging,” when Blogtober has ended.
If you know that the Blogtober challenge is not right for you, stay far away from it.
However, if you are the type of person who likes participating in a challenge now and then, I would recommend that you give it a try.
I truly understand the whole concept of Blogtober; which is to have a bit of fun while you challenge yourself to blog daily for the month of October.
Blogtober might be appealing to someone who views publishing content on their blog daily as a challenge.
However, regarding the person who already publishes content on their blog daily with ease, Blogtober is meaningless.
