[Blogging 201] Need your help to define what the first event of the blog will be

A few days ago, we were required to think of the possibility to organise an event for our blog. I have thought of a couple options but I have a very hard making up my mind, mainly because I don’t know what you guys will enjoy the most.

We were also required to use a poll but I find they do not really engage people, hence the conversation.

Here are the two ideas I had :

Writing cat challenge : I will post a writing cat every Saturday and will invite you to post a writing cat as well on your blog. You can chose a simple picture of a cat with a writing tool or a meme or create your own writing cat. We’ll do a round up on the following Friday. The idea is to have something fun and light to joke around our writer’s condition.

Tips trade market : Every Saturday, I will post a writing tip and invite you to post a writing tip on your blog as well. No theme assignment.
We’ll do a round up on the following Friday. The idea is to discover writing tips, techniques and help each other.

In both options, I’ll ask you to include a ping back to the event post on your article.

So, what is you opinion ? What challenge do you like the most ? Please tell me you your answers in the comment section and thank you very much in advance because I really need your help on this one.

[Blogging 201] Connaissez-vous ma partenaire de blog, Mlle Louise

Louise et moi nous nous sommes rencontrées il y a 4 ans pendant un événement que je cite souvent : le NaNoWriMo.

Nous avons sympathisé autour de notre besoin desespéré d’écrire, de notre amour des bons films de divertissement et du chocolat. Lorsque j’ai lancé ce blog en décembre 2013, elle tait une des premières personnes avec qui j’ai partagé mes idées et le lien vers son blog est le premier qui soit apparu dans ma blogroll. Depuis, nous nous sommes soutenues dans de nombreuses épreuves, le syndrôme de la page blanche, les invasions de plot bunnies et les urgences d’écriture et les épuisements du clavier.

Au cours de mon challenge d’écriture estival, elle a lu la plupart de mes textes avant que je ne les publie, elle a également fait naître des idées dans mon cerveau sans faire exprès.

nous avons partagé des personnages, répondu à certains de nos articles respectifs et chacune a même écrit de la fanfiction du travail de l’autre.

Louise écrit  les émotions dans toutes leurs formes d’expression. Elle a un don naturel pour les longues phrases fluides qui vous donneront envie de serrer vos proches dans vos bras ou de remettre en cause vos préjugés ; cela dépend de son humeur. Elle écrit également beaucoup de fanfiction et a une véritble passion pour les loups. la Tolérance est un de ses dada dans la vie et elle remet à leur place les idiots et les insensibles. C’est un auteur génial, alors n’hésitez pas à visiter son blog : mllelouise.wordpress.com.

Si tout va bien, elle écrira un article sur le blog la semaine prochaine. Elle prendra ma place pour le top 4 du mardi et vous donneras des pistes pour écrire les émotions aussi bien qu’elle. je l’ai déjà dit plusieurs fois et je le dirai autant de fois que nécessaire : elle s’y connait rayon émotion.

[Blogging 201] Blogging Buddies : please meet Louise

Louise and I have met about 4 years ago during an event I have often told you about : NaNoWriMo.

We bonded over our common desperate need to write, love of good entertainment movies and chocolate. When I launched this blog in december 2013, she was one of the first with whom I shared my ideas and the link to her blog was one of the first to appear in my blog roll. Since then, we have supported each other through thick and thin, writer’s blocks and invasions of plot bunnies, urges to write and keyboard exhaustion.

During my summer writing challenge, she was the one to read most of my texts before I published them and even unintentionally spurred ideas in my brain.

We have shared fictional characters, answered some of each other’s blog articles and even wrote fan fiction on each other’s work.

Louise writes about emotions in all his expressions. She has a natural gift for long fluid sentences that’ll make you want to hug your loved ones or questions your prejudices, depending on her mood. She also writes a lot of fan fiction and has a genuine adoration for wolves. Tolerance is one of her constant concern in life and she won’t take crap from anyone being unsensible. She a great writer, so do not hesitate to visit her blog : mllelouise.wordpress.com

If everything’s ok, she’ll be featured next week on the blog. She’ll take over the Top 4 spot to talk about how to write emotions like she does. I have said it many times and I’ll repeat it as often as needed, she’s a master when it comes to write emotions.

Blogging 201 : 3 goals

Our first task of the day is to define 3 blogging goals to keep focussed and improve our blogging practice.

So, here are my goals, plain, simple, mesurable so, you’ll be able to keep me accountable if I don’t achieve them.

  • Establish a blogging calendar till the end of the year and stick to it.
  • Write november posts in advance in order to keep my blog alive while I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo.
  • Connect to a larger base of readers (break the average 100 views/day)

And , just out of curiosity, do you guys have any blogging goal ? what are they ?
