BLOGTOBERFEST

It's time for a challenge. I'm going to post every day in October. I haven't attempted anything so ambitious as a blogger yet. I'm a little bit excited to tell the truth. Will you join me?

We can't have a festival without a variety of events. Highlights on the BLOGTOBERFEST calendar include an art swap, and a giveaway or two. Make sure you visit the festival headquarters here at BigCat's Emporium for regular updates.

There'll be lots of opportunities for audience participation too. This creative journey won't happen by itself so we'll need to set ourself some goals and take on some personal challenges. Don't be afraid. Remember we're in this together. We're already amazingly creative superstars.

Now what's a festival without a launch. Let's kick off the fun with a giveaway. Come see what's On My Desk tomorrow. It could be yours for the taking.

I don't know if I can blog everyday too, but I'd like to be a part of Blogtoberfest just for the Name of it! I'll pass on the beer and pretzels though.

Look forward to seeing what's coming up!

I think I'm up for challenge! If I can't think of it, I'm sure my 3 year old would be happy to ramble off some nursery rhymes to fill the days posts!
