bigtime blogging challenge announced!

Good morning everyone! Super excited to announce the third annual BigTime Blogging Challenge! My blog turns three on July 4th, so each year, I spend July writing every day and opening it up to all my blogging friends to write along with me.

The details are pretty simple - write a post on your blog every day, link it up with mine, and then comment on at least two other blogs. Then, if you share on social media, use #btbc16 to share so all our posts collect together!

If you need a little inspiration, please download a prompt guide. I'll be writing about the topics attached, including three little book clubs:
I will be reading:

  • Live Writing: Breathing Life into your Words (Fletcher)
  • Selected Poems (Brooks)
  • Use Your Words: A Myth-Busting, No-Fear Approach to Writing (Deveny)
You're more than welcome to grab these books and share your thoughts on them, too! Or, on book club days, share about a great book you're writing, or write about anything else you'd like to! The big goal: write every day, share, and comment!

I have to give a few shout-outs, though, as the inspiration for this writing celebration was inspired by others. First, it was inspired by Two Writing Teachers who hold a Slice of Life Story Challenge writing challenge every month. Thank you for hosting that and inspiring this writing challenge!

Secondly, the book club book Use Your Words was because I saw another teacher on Twitter with it, and I'm like 99% sure it was one of the teachers who writes with Two Writing Teachers. But maybe it was Instagram, because I can't seem to find the tweet to link it up.

Generally speaking though, I am just so thankful for my PLN, who inspires me to do better, write better, teach better, and share more each day!

Can't wait to see your stuff in July!


  1. I am SO excited you are hosting this challenge! I did SOL this year in March for the first time and loved it. I really need some motivation to push myself, so this is a great opportunity. I'll have to take a few days off while we're in Antigua, but other than I'm going to aim for everyday. See you in July!

  2. Back for another challenge! Write with you soon!

  3. I can't wait to join in! I've been having some major issues with my blogging- this will be a great way to jump start back into it! Thanks for hosting!

    Mrs. Garcia's Super Scholars!
