What is Blogtober?

Back in July, a very surprisingly-organised Hannah tweeted about preparing for Blogtober – for the first time, in fact:

… which prompted a few replies from fellow bloggers stating that they need to do the same, alongside a handful of queries as to what exactly “Blogtober” is. I definitely don’t think I should be the first stop for learning about blogging challenges, and I know that there’s probably multiple posts out there somewhere on this exact topic – but it was suggested that I do a post explaining the challenge, and so that is what I am here to do 🙂


So, what is Blogtober?

Basically, Blogtober is a month of blogging every day in the month of – yep, October. And yep, every day. Which is why I made a start to my plans back in July! The whole idea is to celebrate creativity and the concept of creating content.

As far as I’m aware, there are no set rules to it. You just post once every day, and that’s it. Contrary to what I used to believe (and why I hadn’t previously taken part… as well as my general lack in organisational skills), you do not need to centre the topic of your posts on things to do with October, Autumn and the likes – of course, you can if that’s what you want to talk about!

There isn’t even entirely a need to have organised all of your 31 posts prior to the month commencing; as helpful as it can be, don’t be put off if you haven’t given it much thought thus far. I’m just very aware that I often struggle to find the motivation to write more than once a week, let alone every day for 31 days! The whole idea is that it’s a fun way to put content out there!


See? Simple! I’m really excited about starting the challenge, not just for putting out my own posts but to see what ideas other bloggers have come up with. And if you’re interested in taking part but don’t feel like you’d manage this year, bear in mind that Blogmas will be coming up on the 1st December too… three guesses as to what that entails!

    This sounds fun, not sure I could do it as I’m still quite new to blogging and figuring out what I’m doing lol

  • Louisa

    I admire every blogger who manages to blog every day. I have tried and failed miserably. I’d definitely love to give it another try though. Best of luck with it!

  • I wish I had enough time to blog every day (or plan ahead enough to release something everyday). Maybe for Blogtober, I’ll be more consistent!

  • bbbryony

    I wish I had the time to do this, I attempted Blogmas last year and stopped posting everyday after about 10 days as I wasn’t getting enough content done to a quality i was happy with. hope it goes well gal x

  • Jenna

    Thanks for sharing! I did Blogmas last year and while it was super fun, it was also a lot of work during a very busy season (aka finals). Blogtober might be better timing for me, so maybe I will try it out this or next year 🙂

    I’m not doing Blogtober, but I have around 10 of my posts already prepped with Blogmas so it’s along the same kind of thing! Can’t wait to see what you bring out for Blogtober!
