Ok, so, we've had blog challenges here before but never like this! My major problem with blogging is that I need motivation to post every day, but I don't necessarily want to follow a plan. So, the challenge here is just to blog every day, or at least get blogging more often! You can write about anything you want. You could even just show pictures. Just as long as you're getting something up as often as you can.

And what better motivation is there than to do this as a group? We can all encourage each other Plus it's nice to have people reading when you're blogging. So who is up for it? I'm posting this now so everyone has ample time to sign up and get in gear for September blogging! Signups are open until August 31st.


Needle Book
By Chelseavantol

Everyone who posts daily will be entered into a draw for one of these needle books handmade by me!

I will be away from September 19th-30th so I will do the drawing when I return.

I'll join as long as there's no limit on space. I'm going to have a baby any day now and even though I have good intentions, I don't want to keep anyone else from signing up that wants to!

chelsea, right now I'll be using the sb.com blog, simply because I don't know enough about it to start one else where.

If you or anyone else has any suggestions I;d appreciate it.

Hmmm...maybe I'll start a thread about it.

PS: Also for those who might have a hard time keeping up otherwise, I might suggest making a google account so you can use the Reader (reader.google.com). As long as a blog has a feed, you can "subscribe" to it there, so you can read all of your blogs in one spot and just have to click the link to the post to leave a comment.

It saves me sooooooooo much time.
