Advantages of joining prompts and blog parties
Prompts are rife in blogging world. There are some obvious advantages of joining in and then there are subtle ones.
We all know that prompts provide us with inspiration to write or compose a blog post. Some prompts ask us to use an image as a muse, some give us a word to provide inspiration. Then there are photography prompts where one has to post a photo on a certain topic or subject. It’s not a secret that prompts help us to step out of our comfort zone and do something that we normally don’t attempt. My venture into writing short stories was because of prompts.
When you join a prompt challenge, you also get noticed by others doing the same challenge. When I started doing prompts in the early days of my blogging, that’s how I build my community, by following people who were writing for the same challenges that I was.
The other side of the coin is to host prompts and challenges. Though this needs a lot of commitment and discipline, if one manages to host a prompt challenge successfully, it can increase your readership by leaps and bounds.
