My Thankfulness for Blogging Contests #thankfulthursdays

When i started my blog a few months ago i would often think how long would i be able to continue this blog,  how could the ideas keep coming, after all the ideas would vanish after writing   40 or 50 posts.  But No, i was wrong .  When you jump into the writing world , the ideas just keep flowing, and for this flow, i am very very thankful to the various Blogging Contests.  Such contests motivate you to  write and read too. You can’t be a good writer if you don’t read. The more You read , more You wish to  Write. blogging contests

Blogging Contests help me in lot many ways :–

Blogging Contests challenge  and motivate me  – Contests have a fixed theme and a deadline too. I work the best when given a challenge otherwise my mind prefers sleeping. Such challenges push me and make me realize ” YES, I can do it “. The motivating comments on the posts and the best post badges make me feel like paragliding . I still cherish my #MMM badge for my post challenges of Motherhood , Dr Amrita gave me .

Blogging Contests encourage discipline – Discipline plays a great role in every part of life & blogging contests help instill it. Contests like #writetribe and #MyfriendAlexa help me write and read consistently , when i am asked to complete a particular writing task on a fixed time.

Blogging Contests help to make virtual friends– My participation in the few Blogging Contests has given  me a number of virtual friends from different  cities.  When you get to know  other people  who are working on the same niche , you learn from each other . These virtual friends form a team and are always ready to help each other.

Blogging Contests  help broaden my vision – When you are prompted to think &  write on varied topics , your vision is broadened . In my case , I have started looking at all things differently whether a blogpost could be created out of it . I think I have even  started listening to people more carefully if their words could be quoted in my #quotedstories .  Do i sound funny ? Doesn’t  it happen with you  ?

Blogging Contests churn me to bring out fiction– I could never imagine  myself writing  fiction. But #Fridayfotofiction started by my virtual friends Tina and Mayuri ignited this spark . Now whenever there is a  fiction prompt , my mind keeps that prompt even in my dreams and next day, the fiction is ready.

Today Once again I feel thankful to one of the best blogging challenge #superbloggerchallenge2018 which was a ten week long challenge in the months of March and April2018 and Yes ! I was able to complete it successfully . I learnt many new blogging tips during this challenge , rather I am still learning . Thanks to the mentors of the challenge who keep pushing us .  The mentors Dr Amrita and Dr Bushra helped in every way through their tutorials and newsletters . The challenge helped inculcating dedication in writing , reading , and learning from each other too . My DA also improved , my blog DA as on date is 22 and credit goes to #superbloggerchallenge2018. Hope to keep learning from the mentors through #superbloggeracademy which is a blogging academy and helps bloggers to bring out the best in them .
