The Dog Days of Podcasting Challenge



The Dog Days of Podcasting Challenge is a challenge where podcasters do a podcast every day for 30 days in a row. It will begin on August 1, 2018. The concept reminds me of NaPodPoMo which takes place in November.

In 2012, Kreg Steppe was looking to give himself a little push in regards to recording his own personal podcast since he wasn’t recording it very often. That turned into a challenge for himself to record a show everyday for 30 days believing that after 30 days it would turn into a habit.

This year, the Dog Days of Podcasting Challenge is inviting more podcasters to get in on the action. It is intended to be a fun challenge. The information about the challenge says “you will not be shamed (too much) if you don’t record every 30 day.” The point is to have fun recording and listening to each other’s podcasts.

The start date is August 1, 2018. The end date is August 31, 2018. Participants are to post once a day for 30 days. The show length is up to each individual participant. The Dog Days of Podcasting Challenge website says most podcast episodes done as part of this challenge will vary from 3 to 5 minutes.

At the time I am writing this blog, the Sign Up form for the 2018 Dog Days of Podcasting Challenge is still accessible. It asks for some information about you, your podcast, and your social media where people can find you.
