This was a fantastic challenge, during which I met so many new people and formed really meaningful connections. I loved seeing how everyone took their spin with the prompts, and the fact that everyone was doing the same prompt on the same day added to the feeling of community, of doing something individually yet together. 
It was great fun and I'll be in for the next challenge!

What is a social media challenge?

A fun way to develop your social media presence. You’ll have a daily prompt to inspire you to create a post for your feed. It’s a great way to expand your network by finding and interacting with others doing the challenge. 

To join in all you need to do is post a picture or image on your Instagram feed or write a Tweet that relates to the daily prompt and include the hashtag/s in your caption.

To get the most value out of the challenge use the hashtag to interact with others in the challenge. Follow, like, and comment to expand your network.

Who is this challenge for?

Anyone associated with the academy who wants to build their online presence.

PhD students/candidates, tenure-track, non-academic careers, adjuncts, deans, department chairs, and lecturers.

Why a whole month?

Completing something for a month builds it into a habit. Gaining a following and building a community on social media needs consistency and time. Build your network by interacting with others during this challenge.

I don't use social media on weekends. Can I still participate?

Absolutely! I believe it is important to set boundaries for our social media usage and enjoy time in the real world distraction-free. 

You can either skip the weekend prompts or post them on Friday afternoon/Monday morning. Missing a few days here and there won’t be an issue for to your participation in the overall challenge. 

It is already mid-month can I still join?

Absolutely! Sign up and start today. While the full benefit comes from doing the whole challenge you can still gain most of the benefits no matter how late you start.
These challenges are really good opportunities to see other academics in a variety of fields. It’s comforting to know we are all going through the same things, regardless of discipline. Plus, I made some close contacts in my own field thanks to this challenge! It’s really nice to be a part of something and part of a supportive network of peers.
