This month we’re doing a series called the A-Z blogging challenge where we dive into Fairytale Retellings and provide prompts for writers. Writers are the people making the books, television shows, and movies of tomorrow. For more information on the challenge check out my earlier post here.
This third year of the A-Z blogging challenge was a blast and I’m so happy that so many of you took part in the prompts. They were as fun to make as they were to read.
It was difficult to get to all the websites this year, there are just so many. I noticed very few blogs this year that are similar to this one. Which got me to wondering?
Where else do people go to talk about all things science fiction and fantasy? There are Facebook groups but that seems a poor substitute for long-form content.
Perhaps long-form is on the way out and shorter content is better. However, last year the posts were quite short and there was a lot less engagement. Fair to say, however, I didn’t get out to visit as many blogs during the month as I wanted to as well.
Now’s the time to consider what to do with this blog over the next year. So I’m going to open up the question to you the reader. Is there anything you’d like to see in the coming year? More movies, television, or books? Short stories, trivia, or just the facts? Now’s the time to be heard if you have any ideas drop them in the comments below.
