TODAY’S QUESTION :
What is the value of running writing prompts to your writing in general, and your blog in particular?
When I started my blog in 2013, I had no idea any of it would take off, yet it has turned out to be one of my better moves!
A year or so ago, I would never have thought I’d be hosting a challenge. I admired anyone who did, the work involved in posting the original challenge, the follow ups, reblogs and responses, and would participate in quite a few. I still do!
Like Fibbing Friday which I co-host with Frank aka PCGuyIV, the Three Things Challenge was originally hosted by Teresa Grabs who closed her original site, and was taken over by Paula Light. She asked if anyone was interested in carrying it on, and after a lot of thought and no takers, I thought I’d have a go. That was in September last year around the 6th anniversary of starting my blog.
It has gone from strength to strength, and I did a combi of all 21 words in a Take Seven post .
Melanie at sparksfromacombustiblemind suggested I make it a regular feature so I did, and whilst it’s not exactly a challenge, I welcome everyone who wishes to contribute.
I get so much pleasure from reading the responses to all of them, and with the Fibbing Friday have a lot of fun trying to come up with questions that can provide all kinds of angles to tell porkies about.
I’ve said it before that my readers help make my blog, and the challenges wouldn’t work or be worthwhile if they didn’t participate, so I thank each and every one of them.
I do admire you 💜💜
you are very kind Willow! Thank you
Thank you Di for hosting 3TC! I know it must be taking up a lot of effort and time.
Thanks. I dedicate one evening and schedule for the week as I’d never be awake at 6.30 every day to write a post!!
I do that too. Looking for suitable images takes a lot of time. I do it for at least a couple of weeks at a time.
You reblog too, so that’s time consuming.
Not really. I learned from Eugenia to reblog 3 posts together so it takes minimal effort and it doesn’t floods the reader with so many posts.
Thanks for the 3TC! ☺️ They’re fun & challenging to include in the posts.
Love it and so glad you enjoy it.
I love three things challenge. I don’t get to it every day like I used to as I spend so much time jumping from blog to blog reading things.
Always pleased to see you take part. It makes it all worth while.
I love your 3TCs!
Thanks Paula! That means a lot as I took over from you. I can’t believe it’s almost a year ago!!
I know! Unbelievable how time has zoomed by 😳
I wish I could regularly in your challenge. But thanks a lot for hosting it
If you can, that’s great Shweta. There’s no time limit so if you wanted you could amalgamate a few.
I love reading your take seven and I’m so happy that you had decided to make it a regular feature
I have Melanie to thank for that.
Do thank her for me 🙂
consider it done.
Your Fibbing Friday prompt is a lot of fun and 3TC provides a lot of creative inspiration.
Thank you! I enjoy setting them.
My pleasure 🌷
