WE DARE YOU TO… // all-new blog competition! (sign-ups closed)

Once upon a time, Maggie got hit on
the head by the
blogging idea fairy. ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿ˜‚
Maggie picked up the idea
that the fairy had left for her.
She unrolled the little piece of parchment.
She couldn’t believe her eyes!
This is what it said:

What if there was a blog competition where everyone competed against each other for the title of Most Daring Blogger?

Maggie fell in love with the idea!
She texted her best buddy Evin
and they got planning…

Now they are ready
to introduce to you…

๐Ÿ’™ FAQ ๐Ÿ’™

Q: How long will I have to write a post for a dare?
A: For Monday dares, you will have 3 days to submit (from the time a dare has been announced!). For Thursday dares, you have 4 days to write a post for it.

Q: How do I write posts for these dares?
A: Follow the guidelines in the dare announcement posts. For example, if the dare is to write a post with completely lowercase letters, make sure you stick to that so you get credit for participating.

Q: What does my post need to be about?
A: Anything you want! As long as it meets the dare criteria, it will qualify (i.e. if the dare is to only share pictures in your post, you could share pictures of a recipe you made, a photoshoot you did with your dog, your backyard, your desk – get creative!)

Q: How can I get extra credit?
A: You can get 2 extra points for each post by not mentioning anywhere in the post (or comments!) that it’s part of a dare! If you want to let readers know it’s for a dare, that’s fine, but that will make it where you get 2 points for that post instead of 4.
