      You don’t have to do 31 ahead..but you could pre-schedule all of your Wordless Wednesday etc. Even 5 ahead would be awesome going into the crazy holiday season

      Last year Kathy I put together discussion posts, top ten lists, holiday lists, a few fun posts with recipes and challenge posts. It doesn’t have to be review posts. Do you participate in memes? You could do all of them for the rest of the year. You don’t have to create 31 posts, but the more you do the more you will destress blogging.

      You can do top ten posts, any memes you participate it, best of lists, Holiday recommendations etc Melanie. You don’t have to create 31 posts…even five would have you in a better place.

    Thanks for encouraging me to sign-up! Even if I don’t meet my goal, it’s still fun and it’s very encouraging to hear about everyone who’s working on the post. This challenge helped me a lot last year and I managed to stay ahead this whole year, it’s a great feeling! I am finally getting a bit ahead with my reviews as well, so I hope I can keep that up. I probably will do weekly updates during the sunday post, would that be okay? I also added the widget to my sidebar. There’s nice list of participants already!

    Yes! I’m in, too πŸ™‚ I have set my goal to 20 posts scheduled ahead, even if you gals have stated 31… My classes have just started, and I know I’ll be busy until Christmas, but I still want to be a part of this – such a great idea! Thanks for hosting for us πŸ™‚

    Well Inlinz seems to be down. I’ll try to link up later. I have set very modest goals — 10 scheduled posts by the end of October. It’s not many, but it is 10 more than I have right now.

    Oh boy, why do I never find out about these kinds of things until right before they start???? I’m not sure if 31 posts is feasible for me at the moment, but I’m certainly going to try! What am I getting myself into????

    Yes, I am currently caffeinated, but not nearly as much as I’m going to be in about half an hour. I linked my sign-up post, but guess it’s taking a few minutes to show up in the list. Will check back later to be sure. SUPER idea for a challenge!

    My progress so far is 3 posts for one blog and six scheduled posts on my main blog. That’s 9 posts I didn’t have three weeks ago – so I’m grateful for this event for prompting me to get organised….and there’s still 11 days to go πŸ™‚
