Challenges For Days - Wednesday List

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.

Challenges For Days - Tuesday Challenges

**Please bear with us - this is a difficult time of year to work on the lists; challenges take breaks but neglect to post it, they change the days or weeks they post challenges and some continue their break long after the date they said they'd return. SO PLEASE, if you see an error on any of our lists, please drop us a note in the comments section.
Thank you!!**

This list is just a guide so please check the rules on the challenge blogs to be sure your entry qualifies.

We will be adding new challenges as we find them - if you are involved in a challenge, or know of one we've missed and would like to see it listed, please leave us a link in the comments box or send us an email at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com

Right now we have no openings for volunteers, BUT we will gladly keep your email for when the time comes when we do need help, so feel free to email us! We would like to expand what our list offers.

All you need is a blogger account and about one hour a week, please take a look at "Joining 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.
