Bloggiesta 2012: Opinion/List Post Challenge

This is the home of the Bloggiesta Opinion and List Post Challenge for a Rainy Day. I hope you'll take this one on because you know your labels need some help. If you don't know what Bloggiesta is, pop on over to It's All About Books and read all about it. It's not too late to join in the fun.

Rainy Day Mini Challenge Task

So what's your task for this Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge? Write a post and save it for another day. This mini challenge will put you ahead of the game by helping you create content you can schedule for the future.

The Details

Okay, so what are you going to write about? You get a choice: Write either an opinion post or a list post. But don't get discouraged, I have some help for you from ProBlogger.

(1) Here's information about opinion posts.
(2) Here's information about list posts.

Don't forget to check out the comments to ProBlogger's blog: You'll find links to examples and some extra tips.

You must have an opinion on something: what makes a good review, why you love audiobooks, why you'll never own an eReader, the importance of libraries. You get the idea.

Lists are easy: gather up some good reviews or interesting blog posts, tell us about your TBR pile, tell us about yourself, list your favorite kids books, share some of your wish list.

Note: Although a book review is an opinion post of a sort, I encourage you to stretch yourself and tell us your opinion about something else. Bloggiesta, however, should be fun as well as helpful, so don't stress too much.

Now What

Once you've written your post, go ahead and either schedule it for posting or save it to use when you need some backup material. Don't forget to link up to Mr. Linky when you've finished so we know you completed the task.

Thank you for the challenge, Beth. I set out to write a list post, actually made a list of several list post to write in the future, and then found myself writing an opinion post, which I rarely do.
I put the link in the Mr Linky, but it will only go live tomorrow (because I scheduled, as you said, for a rainy day, and I do hope it rains tomorrow!)

I love list posts and usually write at least one or two a month. Pure opinion posts, at least those that aren't reviews, are a bit harder for me and usually take more time, but in the end, they're worth the discussion that ensues.

Thanks for stopping by. I read all comments and may respond here, via e-mail, or on your blog. I visit everyone who comments, but not necessarily right away.

I cannot turn off word verification, but if you are logged into Blogger you can ignore the captcha. I have set posts older than 14 days to be on moderation. I can no longer accept anonymous comments. I'm so sorry if this means you have to register or if you have trouble commenting.
