The purpose of our Blog Challenge is to help you power through a set period of time with a consistent series of awesome culture-related blog posts. Start now!
We kicked off 2016 with our first ever Boot Camp Blog challenge with over 100 bloggers around the world. We got such great feedback that we decided to recreate the experience for more bloggers. This time we’ve eased up on the “boot camp” schedule and you can start whenever you’re ready.
When you join our Blog Challenge, this is what you can expect:
You’ll be writing alongside other bloggers around the world and will be able to read and share each other’s stories. If your post is particularly good, we may even request to use it as an example in one of our upcoming Blogging Abroad courses!
Our New Year’s Boot Camp Challenge has already wrapped up, but now we have an automated version that you can start whenever you want! Once you sign up, you’ll start getting e-mail prompts on the following Monday.
Make sure you’re subscribed to our e-mail list to get notifications of other upcoming challenges!
Yes, that is fine if you’ve already published something in the past that fits the week’s prompt. Consider revising it to make it even better or add new insight you’ve learned since you first wrote it.
Keep going. We’re not going to kick you out if you fall behind. But remember, this is a chance to hone your craft, become a better blogger, and accomplish something worthwhile. Our community needs your unique voice and perspective. Your readers want to hear from you, and if you don’t share with them the benefits of what you’re experiencing abroad, who will?
You can always be included in our “round ups” by adding a comment at the bottom of the corresponding round up post with your link.
You can do this two ways.

If you’re still having trouble, the most important thing is to mention somewhere that you’re participating in our blog challenge and share our link: http://bloggingabroad.org/blog-challenge
Blog Challenges are more about challenging yourself. There is no competition involved. Although we don’t have official prizes, you do get something out of it: the feeling of accomplishment, a more engaging blog, the chance to blog alongside others around the world and exchange stories, and access to our e-course- among other things!
All of the prompts will be sent by e-mail on Monday mornings PST.
So as an example, if you’re only able to go to the internet twice per week, we would recommend Tuesday and sometime on the weekend. That way, you can get the prompt e-mail, write your posts offline on the days in between, and publish your post before the week’s deadline is up.
