Blogtober & Blogoween Prompts – My Schedules

I’ve been asked what my biggest blogging achievements are, and I guess it has to be doing the blog challenges Blogtober and Blogmas.  One blog post for every single day throughout October and December. Phew!

They have certainly been challenging but I’m actually rather proud of completing them.

Here are my Blogtober schedules for 2020, 2019 and 2018. If you are a blogger, feel free to use the ideas as prompts for completing your own Blogtober or Blogween challenge. Or if you are a new reader, why not revisit some of the older posts by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

You will also find links to my Blogmas schedule along with ideas for how to complete and survive blog challenges such as Blogtober, Blogoween, Blogmas, April A-Z and 20 Books of Summer.
