I've written about this 30 Day blockchain blogging challenge (inspired by National Blog Posting Month aka NaBloPoMo challenge) a number of times over the past few years, so this time around I'm going to keep this announcement post short and sweet. Well, short for me...😂
Firstly, here are links to my other Blog Posting Month posts -
Introducing #St33mBloPoMo - the first announcement post on our legacy chain, for April 2019.
#St33mBloPoMo Day One - More thoughts & writing prompts - Also for April 2019
(Skipped November 2019 as I was having health issues)
Introducing Hive Blog Posting Month (aka #HiveBloPoMo)! - The first on Hive, for April 2020
Hive Blog Posting Month (aka HiveBloPoMo) starts November 1st 2020! - for November 2020
NaBloPoMo & HiveBloPoMo (aka Hive Blog Posting Month for April 2021! - for April 2021
What exactly is Hive Blog Posting Month?
- Post daily on the Hive Blockchain for the month of November 2021
- Win the amazeballs feeling of having 30 new posts earning crypto on the Hive blockchain!
Is there a community for HiveBloPoMo?
I'm so glad you asked, because YES! As of today, there is a brand spanking new community devoted to this twice a year initiative.
What else is going on for November?
Two other 30 day initiatives spring to mind -
Hive Power Up Month by @hivebuzz - power up every day during the month, either by powering up at least 1 Hive, or setting your post payouts to 100% Hive Power. Check out this post for details - Bee ready for the 2nd Hive Power Up Month challenge!
National Podcast Post Month by @epodcaster - Another one inspired by NaNoWriMo (as was NaBloPoMo & HiveBloPoMo), but instead of working towards a 50K novel, you podcast every day for the month of November. Check out this post for details - Is NaPodPoMo (National Podcast Post Month ) For Me?
Keep in mind that a month begins the first of the month and ends the last day of the month (like on calendars), and that HiveBuzz uses UTC time to validate when you published your post! It is not a date to date month. If you miss one post on one day, you will miss this monthly award and you will have to wait for the next month to try to obtain this badge again.
What should I post about?
I've been meaning to do this for ages, and I've finally put it together! Here's a calendar page with prompts (some Hive specific) for each day. Please remember these are just suggestions and don't feel obligated to use them -
There were also some great suggestions from the HiveTwitter peeps during the recent HiveBloPoMo #HiveChat. Here's a link to the tweet, if you want to take a peek at the replies -
What do I win if I do all 30 posts?
As I said in the short description, you win the amazeballs feeling of completing the challenge and having 30 new posts on the blockchain! But as I've done for every other BloPoMo, I plan to do a little something to help keep everyone motivated and/or thank them for their participation.
I'm not sure I can swing any sort of badges at this point, but now that there's a community, I plan to investigate that next. And since I'm a curator for @ocd, I will be keeping an eye on posts in the HiveBloPoMo community and might be able to recommend a few for curation through OCD's Niche Community Initiative.
Good luck to everyone giving this (or any of the other 30 day challenges) a go! Please feel free to shout out if you have any questions and happy blog posting!
