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 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.
Blogging Contests in which I participated & will continue —
#MMM by Kreativemommy ; #thankfulthursdays By Dr Amrita; #FOW by # WriteTribe Corrine , #myfriendalexa by Blogchatter ; #fridayfotofiction by Tina & Mayuri ; #Tiniature by Gayatri
Blogging Communities which help me grow —
Blogadda , Blogchatter, Indiblogger , WriteTribe are the communities which are great networking platforms . Attending their programs is a win-win situation.
I wish to participate in more and more of Blogging Contests so that i am able to learn more and more. After all , life is full time learning . I wish Blooging contests challlenge me further in the near future so much that I turn an author from a blogger .
Special Thanks to Dr Amrita @healthwealthbridge who gave me the opportunity to write this post .
I am taking my Alexa Rank to next level with #Myfriendalexa
