About the Challenge

Welcome to the Thunderdome.

After 18 months of blogging, the author behind Bumblepuppies decided to create his own writing challenge.  The existing challenges are often fun but they’re usually designed for writers with less experience.  More advanced topics, when they come up, have been known to scare away the majority of regular participants.  This challenge is for the minority that needs something tougher than what works with most bloggers.

I have a Ph.D.  Tougher means tougher.

I will post a new topic every Monday and, as with the Daily Post’s challenges, participants will link to the challenge topic post as part of their entry.  This will generate pingbacks and, well, you know the rest…

If enough participation is generated, I will invite other bloggers with high-level skills to offer an additional weekly topic through this site.  (Bloggers with interest can request an invitation but I make no promises about whether you’ll be accepted.)  Suffice it to say that this weekly challenge could grow into a daily challenge.



  1. Sounds intellectually challenging and I am game. How do I enter the event? I’ve never done this before, thanks!

    1. Just write a post on your own blog that answers the current topic. You can also do old topics if you see one you like. When writing your post, include a link to the challenge topic or come back to the challenge topic and post a link to your entry.

  2. I would like to be a part of this too. Having been here since a month only, I need some help as to how to go about this. Does one have to write that post on a Monday only or any day is fine? thanks
