The D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Challenge is now over. I completed every post and I enjoyed reading many of the posts by others. I have participated in other similar events with a D&D focus but I think this round of questions was probably the overall best. I noticed a strong trend of similarities on some posts while other posts were vastly different in experience.
I attempted to break up the monotony of the posts related to the challenge by inserting posts on other topics at random intervals throughout the challenge. I noticed something right away when I did so. The "off topic" posts generated much more traffic than the posts related to the challenge. I am not talking about a small margin of difference here; it was literally ten times or more for the number of views on the "off topic" posts.
I am not sure that I am going to participate in any more of these month long challenges in the future. I may participate in a "different" way. Maybe I will do a combo post every week combining all of the week's posts into one or do a post every 3 or 4 days with the previous 3 or 4 days all lumped together? I am not 100% sure if I will do anything at all with them yet. There is the upcoming A-Z challenge coming up and I will make up my mind about participating soon.
