I want to start by saying thank you to all those who have been very supportive to my What if? challenges so far and say welcome to those of you new to the blog. Since adding a few new contributors at the first of the year the blog readership is growing rapidly and for that I am grateful and a little overwhelmed. I hope to keep everyone entertained well into the future but I sometimes require a bit of inspiration myself and that’s where the challenges and your responses to them come in. I really enjoy seeing the creative spins everyone puts on a subject that I have set out in front of them.
Last month I asked you to tell me how you would react if you discovered a space ship in your neighbor’s garage. We received ten very fun submissions but the voting nailed down a single winner. Congratulations goes to Zainab at A Mom’s Blog for her post There’s a space-ship in my neighbor’s garage. Please feel free to display your win using button provided (not required)The other submissions are all worthy of a read as well and can be found on the original challenge post here.
For February I have decided to give you a challenge two-fer. I have two different challenge ideas and you can decide if you want to answer one or both. That means each person can submit two separate entries into the challenge but there will only be one winning post at the end of the month barring a tie.
Challenge question 1: What if you went viral?
I want to get inside other bloggers heads and find out what your opinion on a post going viral is. Viral means the post is read and shared by thousands upon thousands of viewers. It would have found a way to get people excited and want to share it with others. What I want to know is if you would want to have this happen or if it has already happened what your thoughts about it were. What post did you write thinking it had a chance or what did you not write because you didn’t want the attention. Give us a little insight into the mind of a blogger.
Challenge question 2: What if you discovered a lost civilization?
So the first challenge question is about the thoughts of a blogger, but the creativity that bloggers show with fictional scenarios seem to be a better fit sometimes here with my What if challenges. So I want to know what, how and where you discovered a new civilization. Was there a weird tiny race living inside the tree trunk in your backyard or did you travel to the amazon jungle and find a lost tribe? The more creative the better but let us know what and how you found these previously undiscovered people. Do they have a purpose or are they just trying to keep to themselves?
You can add your challenge responses to the linky tool with the little blue monster at the bottom of this post. Please add the tag whatifchallenge to make the post easier to find in the reader. Challenge will start on February 3rd and continue all month until February 27th. Voting will be open all day on February 28th with three votes for each person.
I’m looking forward to some interesting, creative and inspiring posts to keep my February a month to remember. So let’s have a little fun together and share our creativity. If you have any questions or ideas for me please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
