It’s been a while since the League of Extraordinary Bloggers had a weekly challenge. After 2+ years of weekly posts, participation in the weekly challenges seemed to be wearing thin and the number of participants started to dwindle. So, what do you think? Do we let it rise from the ashes like a phoenix, or let it die a slow peaceful death?
Personally, I know that my blog postings have slowed as a result of the League going on hiatus, and I truly do miss it. The weekly challenge topic gave me a sufficient kick in the pants to inspire at least one extra post per week. I also miss the camaraderie that each post delivered. Many of us have moved on to other things or had our blogging time diminished as real life stepped in the way, but the fact of the matter is that the League is dependent on its members. If only the same half dozen people participate every week, that tends to be more on the cliquish side rather than the “arms wide open” ideal that the League was built upon — I want 20-30 responses a week, but that may be greedy.
So, rather than me spouting off in a vacuum, let’s open this up for debate. Do we rebuild it and make it better than it was before? Do we stick with weekly topics or make them less often? How can we engage more blogs to participate every week? Do you have any topic ideas that would be fun for the League?
I’m open to ALL ideas and input, so leave your comments below.
