August 13th Weekly SH*T List

August 13th, 2020
Welcome to the Weekly SH*T List, your handy-dandy go-to list to keep current on all things challenging. The name is the acronym of the words 'So Happy It's Thursday', (SH*T). Just as everyone understands that TGIF stands for 'Thank Goodness It's Friday', Thursday's acronym is not quite as polite but very effective. This list is usually posted early Thursday morning (EST), but will occasionally get posted later if there is something going on in my life.

For those who are not sure what the challenges listed below are all about, just click on the link and it will bring you right to the original post that has all the rules and information needed to enter. I have also spelled the acronym of any challenges in full for further clarity.

While the Weekly SH*T list only lists the ending date of the current challenges, please go through the discussion board to find challenges to be voted on. Voting can be just as important as participation and is generally the most fun and exciting part of the challenges.

Don’t forget to hit the link to check out the details of any challenges you are considering in case I may have messed up the dates or such.

Thank you, Annie @annied for continuing on with the Word of the Month! This challenge is a great place for those who occasionally lose their mojo and need ideas or inspiration. It is also a great challenge for those who want to go that extra nine yards to do a full month of words.
