Blog Ahead 2016 + Swapoween Sign Up

I really meant to do a Sunday Post today, with some various announcements, but I didn't have much time this weekend, with family in town. However, I keep meaning to say that I'll be doing Blog Ahead this October, so now is a good a time as any!

This is a blog event hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup and the idea is to spend October scheduling as many posts as you can during the month. I think the big goal is to schedule ahead 30 posts, so if you start the month with 2 blog posts scheduled, you'll add 30 and hopefully have 32 posts scheduled by the end of the month. I suppose you can schedule for October (which I will) but you can also try and get things scheduled out for November and December too so you have a bit of a cushion during the upcoming holiday months!


Chaotic Goddess Swaps has some great blog swaps throughout the year. I haven't done one in awhile, but I love Halloween so much that I couldn't pass this up!

I love swaps and this one sounds like heaps of fun, I just wish I had the time to commit :/ I've been so terribly busy, but! I do love the idea of scheduling a few posts ahead of time - I really need to do this ha ha!

Ahhh this sounds like so much fun. I definitely will think about participating in the blog ahead challenge but I might have to wait until next year to participate in the swap! This all sounds great though! : )

Both of these sound interesting! Good luck getting those blog posts written. :)

I have been blogging for over 3 years now and I have never managed to give myself any kind of a cushion. I think I am really bad at scheduling, so perhaps I ought to give this a try!
