October Blog Events: Blog Ahead + Blogoween

Posted September 24, 2018 by shooting in Discussion / 36 Comments

Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I’m sharing a couple blog events for the month of October that I’m going to take part in. The first is Blog Ahead and then there’s Blogoween for all you Halloween fans (I am most definitely one of those!)
Two October Blog Events: Blog Ahead and Blogoween - are you joining? #ontheblog #bookbloggers #halloween Click To Tweet

It’s Time to Blog Ahead

Anna from Herding Cats & Burning Soup is hosting her annual Blog Ahead throughout the entirety of October. You can sign up here if you are interested in joining!

The Deets on Blog Ahead:

  • challenge lasts throughout all of October
  • One month to complete an extra 30 blog posts
  • Take the number of posts you have complete on October 1 and add 30 to that number. THAT is your total posts you’re aiming for by November 1
  • All finished posts must go live after November 1

If any of the above doesn’t make sense, just let me know and I’ll be happy to break it down for you! Right now, I have nothing blogged ahead. But my plan is to do quite a bit of October posts this week so that I can focus even more time in October on post-October posts that will actually count for Blog Ahead. It’s a great way to get things scheduled ahead of time because we all know we’re entering the busiest time of the year!


Let’s Celebrate Blogoween!

Blogoween is an event happening in October, hosted by a variety of bloggers. Each day of October has a different prompt, so you can join in on the ones that you’re interested in. Most of these prompts are related to books, but not all of them, so check it out and see if there are enough of them for you to take part!

This event has three different levels – depending on how many posts you want to do; I’m going with Level 1.

Level 1: 13 Days of Blogoween

Pick any 13 days to post
You don’t have to be consecutive.
You don’t have to post on Halloween (but you can!)

I feel like there are at least 13 prompts that I can do and it gives me some fun content to work on in October (and I can create my own Halloween themed posts – more on this under The Deets). Plus, I can post on any of the dates I want. There are two other levels, so you can find those details here.

The Deets on Blogoween:

  • ONLY Halloween/Autumn themed posts allowed.
  • Book Reviews MUST be Halloween/Autumn themed OR Horror/Paranormal/Thriller/Crime/Mystery in genre.
  • Can use Hosts prompts (not compulsory).
  • Feel free to create your own prompts JUST check the list further down to make sure yours is not similar to one of the hosts.

If you want to sign up, use this form here.

While I’m not a host for this, I’d still be happy to answer any questions you may have if I’m able, so just leave a comment!

Tell me: Do either of these October events sound good to you? Will you be signing up for Blog Ahead and/or Blogoween?

  1. Yay! Blogoween!
    I’m already doing a Countdown to Halloween linkup on one of my blogs – seems like cheating to sign up for this one using the same posts! Or is it???

  2. Sounds like you’re going to busy this October!! I probably should sign up for a challenge, especially because I’m trying to blog more. I’m going to look into Blogoween, because 13 days seems doable for me. πŸ™‚

  3. These sound like fun! I like the Blog Ahead idea since I typically write a bunch of posts into the future in my small pockets of spare time! πŸ˜› I’d want to space out those posts for the next couple months though if I were doing 30 extra! My blog (or really, I) can’t handle that much!

  4. Hm. I don’t entirely get Blog Ahead. So, if I have 1 post scheduled for publication in October, I have to write 30 more? And they are all to be published after November 1st… meaning I have a backlog of posts pre-scheduled. Okay, okay, I think I get it. Let me know if I missed something!

    I *might* be participating in Blog Ahead, but honestly, 30 posts intimidate me! I don’t think I can make it to that AND maintain my current blogging schedule. Yikes. I won’t be participating in Blogoween as I’m not really a Halloween person. But I love reading so many Halloween-themed posts. I cannot wait to see what you write!

    Thanks for sharing about these events. I love hearing about all the blog events around the blogosphere! Particularly in advance so I can plan to participate. πŸ™‚

  5. Blogoween sounds like fun, I may have to see if I can find the time to participate in that one! I’m always looking for more linkups and ways to meet people!

    Blogoween sounds like so much fun! Also, I hope to one day be able to blog that much ahead for the blog ahead event you’re doing! That is my goal to have a months worth of posts written before the month starts!

  7. I have a theme for my reading every October, this year it’s demons, and I’m doing Kwante in Wonderland’s October IG challenge, so I have my hands full, but Blogoween sounds like a ton of fun. If you do it next year I’ll pre-plan for it! ?

  8. This sounds like fun! I always want to blog ahead or schedule posts and don’t get around to it. October is going to be a very busy month my side – otherwise I’d definitely have joined in. Perhaps next time πŸ™‚

  9. I’d love to take part in the blog ahead challenge but I absolutely don’t have the time this year. πŸ™ I still have 101 projects and things to do since moving into the new house and blogging in general is often taking a backseat – much less blogging ahead. Hopefully next year! πŸ™‚

  10. These do sound like fun events! I would probably participate if I had the time to devote to it this year. I really enjoy all things seasonal and these events are in my wheel house. I hope that you enjoy them. πŸ™‚

  11. These both sound really fun! I blog with five sisters, so maybe we could divide some content for the blog ahead πŸ™‚ We’ve already got a lot of Halloween/Fall posts in the works, but I’m excited to check out the prompts and see if we want to participate in Blogoween! Thanks for sharing about these challenges.
