I’ve been thinking a lot lately of different ways to combine a self improvement regimen and a group writing project. The result is Blog Scouts. Here’s how it works.
Each month, I’ll be focusing on an actual merit badge from Boy Scouts. I will adapt the requirements so that they can be written about in a post. Each requirement is a post topic. Whenever you write a post to fulfill the requirement, send me a link to your post and I’ll put it on my site so others can see what you’re doing to fulfill the requirement.
After you finish the requirement, you’ll get to download a nifty merit badge to display with pride in your sidebar.
The goals of Blog Scouts are:
- Encourage myself and others to learn new skills and new things.
- Give other bloggers something to write about on their blog.
- Give some link love.
- Have some fun!
I think this should be a lot of fun and I hope you all take part in this with me. Get ready!
