Blog Ahead (October) Sign Up!

It's that time of year again! Blog Ahead is here! Almost. In October. lol

The GOAL? Up your number of completed blog posts by 30 in one month.

This is one of the things I advocate the most as a blogger. It literally saved the blog the past 2-3 months. If I hadn't had posts pre-scheduled and ready to go the blog would have basically been silent since July because of my eye issues. I've formatted I think 3 posts since July. That's it. lol All the post that went live I'd finished during the last Blog Ahead.

So. yes. I think it's crazy important. lol And a huge help just in general for dealing with vacations, school, busy schedules, blogger burnout, and, of course, emergencies.

And just a note on that. It doesn't mean you have no wiggle room. I do move posts around a lot once they're finished. Like if a new release catches my eye or a discussion topic comes up. I'll do a new post and re-arrange. So you aren't locked into what you initially date things. I know that's a concern for people.


My personal numbers: Usually I have 60+ scheduled. As of Oct 1 I have... 11. 6 of which go live in October. So I have my work cut out for me this coming month! I'm going to try to finish all October post (obviously lol) and all November posts. *fingers crossed*



Increase the number of blog posts you have pre-scheduled by 30 during the event.

On Oct 1 check your completed post total. Add 30.
Ex. Oct 1-- 2 scheduled posts
Oct 31-- 32 scheduled posts

Only post that will go live after Nov 1 and are completed count towards the challenge.


Feel free to join in! Just add your blog below :)
