In 2009 and 2011 I participated in Blogtoberfest - the challenge being to blog something every day.
It's on again, and I have signed up to join in the fun.
It's a great challenge to do.
I found it made me think more about a lot of issues around having a blog, such as: why you blog; what you blog; what you want to blog; the direction you want your blog to take; whether you blog for you, friends, family or to attract readers.
It made it more fun once again for me - not a chore at all - and it inspired me to create, so that I had more things to blog about!
Aside from that I have met some fabulous bloggy friends along the way from joining in.
Some people run giveaways, others just join in for the fun of it.
Cathy has this year handed the reins over to Kat at I saw you Dancing.
Curlypops has worked her magic with a blog button once again and Kat has a dedicated Blogtoberfest page with all the details.
So if you feel inclined to join in - pop over and sign yourself up.
Or come back tomorrow for the first of many Blogtober posts.
What can you expect from me: Some summer sewing; lots of pics of my family; the latest books from the bedside table and a whole lot of other blatherings I am sure!
The fun starts tomorrow, but you can always come late to this party - there's no pressure.
