There is a point of contention between some bloggers about purity of method when it comes to blogging. Do you hope to connect only with those that “love” your work and through those connections do you hope to build an audience only of like minded people? Or are you like some bloggers (me) that would rather see their work in front of a million faces and hope that a percentage of connections comes from it?
It has been a year now and all I have given is my first name. Does it really matter at this point who I am? Who any author is? Do you think it matters only to you or to other readers as well? I haven’t ever asked, but I was curious.
Note: Thanks to all the new subscribers and welcome!
If anyone has a spell that will “time freeze” my lawn so I don’t have to mow it every week please share it. Also include appropriate instructions on which hand motions to use, charms, and enchantments etc.
I am going to open my board up for a week to a challenge. Much like my “Project O” of last year, I will open my blog up to hosting opinionated pieces written by other bloggers on whatever topic you find important. I will set a few guidelines because honestly no one wants to read 5,000 words about whatever it is you feel passionate about because guess what? We aren’t you.
The challenge is a 1000 word or less essay on a topic of your choice. I only ask that the topics be tasteful since I will be re-blogging these on my website. I will spread out the re-blogs so I don’t flood my board, but I invite ALL BLOGGERS (18 years of age and older please) to participate. I encourage topics that the “world” might not know about, specifically subjects that might be important to your country, region, or personal morals. Give us something new we can’t read about on CNN’s front page.
I will re-blog those posts done by bloggers that meet the requirements. Please send me the link in the comment section here and tag as HRChallenge. Be patient with re-blogs, I will get to them and I am going to spread them out a bit more.
Feel free and re-blog this challenge and share it. I welcome anyone that wishes to participate and look forward to reading some good opinionated articles.
Note 1: I will make this post a sticky for a week and keep this challenge open till the 1st. One post per person please.
Note 2: I am also looking for possible guest authors in the future and will read these posts with interest to see if anyone fits in with HarsH ReaLiTy.
Note 3: A Hint To New Bloggers – A title is EVERYTHING when it comes to a re-blog. You do not necessarily need to write trashy articles that are written only for shock value. There do exists good posts with catchy titles that simple take some thought and time. A good title is hard to find, but when you find one it matters.
Thanks to all that take part and remember to tag HRChallenge if you can remember to do so.
