2015 Book Blog Discussion Challenge


The Book Blog Discussion Challenge is hosted by Nicole at Feed Your Fiction Addiction and Shannon at It Starts at Midnight.

The Challenge:  

Quit “meaning to” write those discussion posts – and actually do it!


A Note

  • You can join in any time. You don’t have to have a book blog.
  • Sign up here.
  • Link up your discussions each month. (MUST be book-related!)
  • Share and comment on others’ discussions!
  • Use the hashtag #LetsDiscuss2015

This challenge will run from January 1 to December 31, 2015. 

My Goal

Last year I started Thoughts on Thursday, which was my discussion post. I discovered that Thursdays typically were my empty day of the week, so it was perfect to slide in a discussion feature there seamlessly. I was doing pretty well with it…until school fully got underway. I had three good posts in August (about Goodreads, Minimizing and Tours), and one strong post in September (and two mediocre ones), one in October (the GIFs one!).

In five months I posted five true discussion posts. Basically one per month. Yes, it became a hassle, even with a log of ideas to write about. When I planned beforehand it wasn’t as stressful (and consequently as “oh well” when I didn’t post). I’ll start with my ideas from last year. This year my goal is to be a Creative Conversationalist (13 – 24 posts). This means 2 posts per month will get me fully to the upper end of my goal.

    • Thank you, Nicole! I know I fizzled out on ToT not long after I got started on it. It’s so easy to put off those discussion posts! I’m really looking forward to this challenge and finding other great posts.

  1. Another one I discovered through you that I just joined. I so am horrible at planning discussion posts and never getting around to doing them. Joining this a bit late but not bad, will have fun participating in (hopefully) Good luck to you.
