This past year, one of my favorite challenges has been the Back to the Classic Challenge hosted by Sarah at Sarah Reads Too Much. This was a great challenge -- basically, participants read and blogged about six required categories and five optional categories. After completion, they wrote a wrap-up post. Participants who completed the required categories and wrap-up post got one entry into a drawing for a $30 gift card; people who complete additional categories get additional drawing entries. Simple, right? (For more details, click here).
Well, 2013 was Sarah's third year in a row of hosting the challenge, and sadly, she announced recently that she just had too much going on to host it for the fourth year. However, she did offer to let anyone take over the hosting duties, at least temporarily. So it got me thinking. . . what if I took over hosting for 2014? Am I completely crazy? I've been emailing back and forth with Sarah, and I think the hardest part will be setting up the sign-ups -- I've had several giveaways, but I've never hosted a challenge before. I think the hardest thing would be incorporating the Mr. Linky widget. (I've already had fun creating my own button, above).
Bloggers, what do you think? Am I a mad fool to consider this? How hard can it be? And most of all, is anyone interested in signing up if I take the plunge and do this? Please let me know in the comments!! And if you have any ideas for categories, list those as well. I have some ideas and if I do this, I'll post by the end of the week.
