Challenges for Days, Wednesday's Challenges

As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  

Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!

Right now we have no openings for volunteers, BUT we will gladly keep your email for when the time comes when we do need help, so feel free to email us! We would like to expand what our list offers.

All you need is a blogger account and about one hour a week, please take a look at "Join our Happy Band."  There is so much we'd like to accomplish with this blog.  So if you have a little bit of spare time, then drop us an email.
