Before the challenge begins on March 15
There are a few things you can do prior to the challenge to make sure you’re ready to go in March.
Check your registration
- A few days after registering, check the student participants’ page. Look for “2020 Students” in the header area of this blog. Check this list prior to March 15 to make sure you are on the list and your details are correct.
- If you are not listed on the participants’ page, register again being careful that your blog URL is correct.
Other ways to get ready
- If you are on the participants’ list, start visiting other student blogs if you have time. You might choose to visit students who are a similar age to you or who share similar interests.
- Consider starting the Blogging Bootcamp self-paced course if you’re new to blogging and need to get your blog set up before beginning.
- Try to have at least one post published on your blog so others can leave comments when they visit.
- Spread the word! For students/classes that use Twitter, the hashtag is #STUBC.
