Fancy falling (back) in love... with your blog?

Have you seen the new challenge which will be taking place next month at A Playful Day? As part of 'An Inspired 2015' Kate is challenging everyone to fall in love with their blog in April.

A Playful Day
If you're someone who has a blog (or maybe you've abandoned it for a while and are not sure how to start again) there will be plenty to inspire you. If you haven't started your own blog yet, but would like to, this would be a great time to do it - the challenge is open to anyone who would like to take part, and there are just a few simple rules.

As well as inspirational weekly prompts, there will be interviews with some fabulous bloggers - you can read about why they blog, how they decide what to write about and what it has taught them. I'm thrilled to have been included and will be telling you about the inspiration for Crafts from the Cwtch and about finding my 'voice'. (I'll post a link to that in due course.)

As well as interviewing established bloggers, Kate will post a new blog prompt each Monday in April (the first one can already be seen here) which YOU can join in with. The prompts can be interpreted in any way you wish and when you've published the post, simply add it to the list so we can all find it.

Full details can be found here and you can also join the Ravelry group discussion thread if you can't wait to chat about it! The first prompt feels perfectly timed after  my (awesome) day with the 'Instagrannies' on Saturday. I'll be drafting mine tomorrow.

  1. Sounds exciting. My blog has fallen by the wayside over the last 12 months but I do love to read blogs as I prefer reading other people's lives and their photographs. Sad that many do not blog as much now.

    1. Funnily enough, I've drafted a blog post about reasons people stop blogging. It can feel like you're talking to yourself sometimes, and I think that's one of the (various) reasons that people stop. (It's also why I think blog hops/link parties are especially great if you are new/reviving a blog - you're more likely to get comments which are great for morale. Despite plenty of views, I don't get a lot of comments here either - feedback is better on social media which is why I tend to link to my posts on Facebook and IG and get a better two-way conversation. I think some bloggers have switched to using IG more now too.)

  2. Ooh, interesting. This could be just what I need for blog inspiration! I'd not heard about this so thanks for sharing. :) x

  3. Sounds great. I recently blogged about how many bloggers now are becoming more and more commercialized and less about sharing projects and day to day things. Many bloggers have just given up. If a blog I follow hasn't posted anything in 6 or more months, I delete it from my reading list.

    1. I agree. I'm also sad that a lot of my old faves either stopped blogging completely or mostly just podcast - if it's a video podcast I just don't have the time to watch many to get to the bits I want to see :(

    1. I use Instagram more than I blog, but I see that as supplementary rather than a replacement. Sounds like a good plan for a blog post.

  5. This sounds great.I love writing my blogs , sharing my crafty world , but also giving other crafty people little business types tips too. Sometimes though I feel I'm talking to noone x

    So any advise on what I should be blogging about about and how to ensure I get readers will be appreciated

    1. Yes, I think this series will be very useful and also having the link-up is great for getting comments and that always makes you feel that writing the post wasn't a waste of time/ that you're talking to no one! :) x
