Blog Ahead Challenge Recap

The Blog Ahead Challenge, which is a bloggery version of NaNoWriMo. It's hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup. It runs from November 1-30th, 2014 and the basic goal is to get "ahead" in your blog posts. Hopefully at the end of the month of November you will have 30 additional pre-schedules than when you started the month. Posts for this challenge are scheduled after Decemeber 1, 2014.

My goal for this challenge was 15 pre-scheduled posts.

So far, I have completed

  • 3 pre-scheduled Book Blogger Hop posts
  • 1 pre-scheduled Book Blog Reading Challenge (SQUEE! I'm super excited about this post scheduled for Jan 1 because I am hosting my own book blog reading challenge)
  • template for a monthly progress link up for the Book Blog Reading Challenge (so that counts for 11 posts, right? lol)
  • 2 pre-scheduled review for a blog tour
  • 4 pre-scheduled posts for the Top Ten of 2014 Challenge
That's a total of 21 posts!

I'd call this challenge a success! Thanks to Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup for hosting this challenge and providing some much needed support while I worked through a blogging slump. Congrats to everyone who participated!


  1. Wow Emily I don't think I would've been able to do this challenge! Congrats on pre-scheduling 21 posts! Do you think you'll stick to scheduling or just give yourself a month off of blogging?

    1. Thanks!! Hopefully I will continue to blog ahead, but who knows - this is my last year of graduate school and it has gotten pretty intense (you know how school gets in the way lol)
