Some of you may know that I'm a floating list manager over at Challenges For Days .... a blog which lists challenges by day, every day. This blog was started in 2013, by Zoe Sanderson, and we have been celebrating it's success all week with some giveaways
Challenges For Day (CFD) came about in 2013 when Zoe thought about putting together a list of challenges out there in blogland, she separated them in to each day ... of course some challenges publish by date rather than always on the same day so there are actually EIGHT lists. The lists are laid out WEEKLY, TWO WEEKLY and MONTHLY and there are links to each challenge blog included - which makes it super easy to access each challenge. It was always intended to be a useful resource to members of the crafting community. Naturally, this was a lot of work for just one person to do .... so Zoe recruited a team to assist, giving each member a list of their own. We currently have a team of nine, including me ..... I'm a floater and cover holiday, sickness etc.
If you would like to join us then I'm sure we'd love to hear from you. Having help on call is always a benefit and Christi (who now runs the CFD blog) has a number of ideas for improvements once we have the extra help. All you need is an hour or so to spare each week, and an active blog of your own - details are on the CFD blog under the tab "Join our happy band" - look forward to hearing from you.
To celebrate the blog's birthday, each team member has made a birthday card .... and below you can see my own. If you want to be in with a chance of winning today's prize then please leave me a comment (mentioning the CFD Birthday blog celebrations).
