We’re only 9 days into the Ultimate Blog Challenge but I’m so amazed at the number of bloggers that are participating!  Some have been with the challenge previously and for others this is the first time but hopefully not their last. They share awesome blogs that are interesting, funny, serious and some delicious recipes.  I first found out about this challenge in January 2016 and I’ve managed to complete the challenge every quarter in 2016 and every quarter in 2017 (so far that is!) I now pass the word to other bloggers when ever I can so they can join in on the fun too.


Yes it’s fun, super fun, to come up with a daily topic or use the suggested topic in the daily email. But the other fun part is tracking your stats and see the difference during the challenge months!

I usually share bloggers more towards the middle of the month but I wanted to give a shout out to some super bloggers who write awesome blogs. Of course they are all super and these are just a few that you may be interested in reading and following.


The first blogger I’m going to share with you is Carrie and her blog VIEW FROM THE VALLEY.  Carrie is writing about health and wellness the entire month.  Head on over and read some of her excellent posts.

Another favorite blog I enjoy reading is from Barbara who writes about A CALIFORNIA LIFE.  When you read her blogs, it’s like you are going on a tour with her and the photos are awesome!

I can’t not mention Vidya and her exciting blog My R and R Space.  Vidya writes about a variety of topics and she has a recipe for delicious homemade apple chips that I have to try!

When I read the blogs Nita writes, they are so exciting and I love how she adds a video to many of the blogs she writes on NITABESHEAR.   One of my favorite blogs from Nita  is “Give Yourself a Compliment”.

Whether a blogger is new to the Ultimate Blog Challenge or a seasoned veteran, most everyone knows Roy and his blog ADJUVANCY.  Roy has a variety of interesting topics from technology, taxes, medicine and economy just to name a few.

Like I mentioned, every blogger is awesome and I so enjoy reading them and leaving comments. Oh that’s another cool thing about the challenge, besides watching your stats grow with more views, you also can watch your comments soar as other bloggers not only read your blog, but they comment and share to other social sites.  So you have no idea where you blog will go and how may read your excellent stories!!



Totally unrelated to my blog topic today, but it’s also my 26-year-old granddaughter’s birthday.   Can’t figure out how the grands keep getting older each year when I’m still a kid (at heart).   HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALLISON!!

I started my blog to review products. Since then it has evolved and now I teach people how to earn money online from the comfort of their home. Join the conversation. Leave a comment below.

    I’m so glad I stumbled onto the challenge January 2016, I don’t even remember how but I’m hooked now Paul!

  7. Thank you for the shoutout!!! What an awesome way to end my day!!! I ❤️ all the blogs I’m being exposed to this month!!!

  8. Martha says:

    Glad I could help end your day on an awesome note! I enjoy reading you blogs Carrie! Glad you joined in on the October challenge!

  9. Thanks so much for mentioning my blog. I’ve been enjoying yours, too. I’m finding this challenge much more fun than the A-Z challenges that dictate what I must write. I got burned out in 2015 trying to do an A-Z challenge for two blogs and the same time. It was great for my statistics, but bad for getting enough sleep. Especially since it was the month taxes were due.

    This challenge has shown me how much I really love this blog, my first non-seasonal, non-business related blog. It ignores all the blogging advice and just allows me to be myself and share what interests me. Actually, though, the blog you mentioned above is only related to the one I’m using for this challenge. I’m doing the challenge on this blog:, since it doesn’t demand as many words per post. I link back and forth between the two of them. Both deal with life in California.

    Thank you so much for your he shout out. Glad you enjoy the posts. Thanks for sharing.

    I like to sneak in shout outs from time to time Nita, this is the earliest I’ve done. But when I read great blogs, I want to get the word out! Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Martha says:

    You are very welcome, I so enjoy your writings! I love all your photos in your blogs Barbara, it makes me feel like I’m right there with you! I too did the A-Z along with the UBC and it did take up a lot of time and more thinking than I had time for after working all day.
