Challenges for Days - Thursday's Challenges

Check out each challenge's rules to be sure your entry qualifies, there is nothing more frustrating than doing all that work and entering just to be told you missed a condition and do not qualify! If you know of a new challenge, or a challenge change, please either leave us a message or email us at


 These are the Thursday Challenges we are aware of. The lists are prepared by humans and that means mistakes can (and will) be made; if you spot one, please let us know.
If you know of a challenge we don't list, please leave us a message in the comment box.

Have a great week.

Challenges for Days - Wednesday's Challenges

As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  

Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!

Right now we have no openings, BUT we will gladly keep your email for when we inevitably do need help, so feel free to email us! Here is some more info on what we need ans what is expected of our volunteers: Join our Happy Band 

All you need is a blogger account and about one hour a week, please take a look at "Join our Happy Band."  There is so much we'd like to accomplish with this blog.  So if you have a little bit of spare time, then drop us an email.
