What is Blogtober?
Blogtober is essentially where bloggers post a new blog post for every day of the month of October.
As the title suggests, it’s a month-long of keyboard-banging, and chucking out hundreds of words while maintaining one’s wit, sense and order.
Why take part?
Because why not? Blogtober Challenge is a great excuse to publish those article drafts I wrote a long, long time ago; immortally collecting cobwebs at the bottomless pit of my WordPress dashboard. There are more than seventy of those. Half-baked yet bursting with flavors.
Also, this is the perfect excuse to embed my favorite GIF of all time – the keyboard-banging Hermit the Frog.
What are the rules?
There are no rules to Blogtober other than creating new content every day of the month. That means people can get as creative as they want to with their posts.
The entries do not have to be travel-related but where’s the fun in that. Sure, there will be a struggle towards the end but a workaround shall be in order. Beer or no beer, it doesn’t matter.
In the words of a famous jedi, “Do. Do not. There is not try.”
