I've been blogging for a while now, and I've gone through several lulls in my blogging. I'd go through periods where I'd post frequently, and then vanish for months at a time. When I'd come back to the writing, I would enjoy it so completely, I'd wonder why I left!
I'd leave when I felt like I had nothing to say, or when things got difficult in life I'd think it'd be better to not write anything, as whatever I might write would sound melancholy, or any other number of excuses. This last time that I returned to my writing, I wanted to try to find something to make sure I didn't let it peter off for no good reason, something to keep me blogging.
I knew there were writing challenges out there, and blog rings and chains, etc. but I didn't know where to find them. I Googled a bit and found a couple that got my interests, but to find them I had to cull through dozens of old contests and groups that are no longer active.
I know I'm not alone in wanting to keep blogging but occasionally losing my muse, I see the same sentiments echoed in other's posts all the time. My hope is that anyone who is looking for friends or contests who will keep them motivated to write will be able to turn to this site to find blog chains and writing challenges to keep them blogging!
