We’re thrilled to announce a new space for inspiration and creativity here at The Daily Post.
It’s been exciting to follow some of the great conversations around the features and Editors’ Picks at Discover since we launched our showcase last November. So we thought, why not extend them over here at The Daily Post, where thousands of engaged, creative bloggers are already sharing great work (and a great sense of community)?
Enter our new, shiny Discover Challenge. Starting tomorrow (3/8), we’ll run weekly challenges connected to the stories and ideas that have recently inspired us — from interviews with prominent bloggers to personal essays and breathtaking illustration and photography.
We know that some bloggers encounter issues with pingbacks, especially if your site is self-hosted. If you can’t create a pingback, please drop a link to your post in the challenge’s comments section.
Since the sources of inspiration are going to be eclectic, your responses can be in any genre, medium, or format you feel like. Just like with our popular Photo Challenge (and, previously, Writing Challenge — for those veterans who’ve missed it), you’ll be invited to publish a post on your own blog, and share a link to it here via a pingback. A poem or a photo, a web comic or a longform essay, a video clip or an original song — we welcome your contributions in whatever shape or form they take.
See you tomorrow for our very first challenge — we can’t wait!
