The Bloggers’ World forum have had many features in the past that were regularly hosted on a weekly basis. These features evolved over time, and many of the volunteers who wrote them have had to move on because of other commitments. I’ll leave the former titles as examples.
What would you like to see here, if anything? It’s hard to commit to a weekly post, but would you think about contributing if we established regular features?
Weekly features are posts done by our authors in certain categories. If you volunteer, you can publish the same post on your blog too. In some cases, if you contact admins, you might be allowed to publish a post you published on your blog a while ago. We are very friendly and lenient about all our rules. We publish the monthly schedule of weekly features on the first of every month.
New participants and contributors, please read about the features and browsing the previous ones, and share your thoughts.
We have had the following categories:
Monday Magic (Mondays)
The volunteer writers share inspiring stories. The theme is’inspirational’; the feature is open to interpretation. Contributors can share whatever they find inspiring – whether it be a famous quote or personal anecdote.
Trivia Tuesday (Tuesdays)
This is a feature where the volunteer gets to share fun/unknown facts which in most cases are not generally known to all.
Authors Who Made History (Wednesdays)
Every Wednesday, an article is shared that talks about one particular author who contributed immensely in the literary world with their work and hence, made history . Since many of us in the forum are avid readers, this is an interesting way to discuss your favorite or not so famous authors and their work.
