What is The Digit-al Dozen?
Despite the name, The Digit-al Dozen is a group of 24 awesome nail polish bloggers, mostly from North America, but some from Europe and the UK. They do a nail art challenge once a month, running for five days in a row (Monday-Friday). Each month has a different theme, and they'll interpret that theme with five different nail art designs.
Recently they've expanded and have started a blog, along with a Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, etc. They've done some interesting posts including "What Camera Do You Use?": a roundup of the types of cameras used by various members; and "A Dozen Nail Art Tools": where they talk about the nail art supplies they can't live without. In the near future they'll be posting nail art tutorials, as well as posts on favourite nail polishes, nail care, and related topics.
The blog aims to be a go-to site for nail art and nail polish, and what I think is awesome is that it draws on the knowledge of 24 bloggers. And of course it couldn't happen without the feedback of readers. So any suggestions for future posts and what you'd like to see would be very welcome.
Why I'm Excited to Join The Digit-al Dozen
...and What It Means For This Blog
I remember earlier this year when I first heard about The Digit-al Dozen, I thought to myself "What a cool group, I'd love to be part of that someday!" So imagine my surprise when I was approached and asked to join. Unfortunately it's a closed group and they're not accepting new members, but it does go to show that if you work hard you can achieve your blogging goals.
I'm also excited because I really like the new Digit-al Dozen blog. I think it's clear from my Beginner Blogger's Bootcamp that I enjoy thinking about blogging, and how to make blogs stronger. So I really am looking forward to this new direction in the group.
So what that means for this blog is that once a month for a week I'll be posting nail art designs around a specific theme. I've come to realize that I need challenges like this in order to continue doing nail art - it's easy to get into the habit of always posting swatches, and the challenges push me to break that habit.
So if you enjoy tuning in for my nail art, you should like this new direction in this blog! Our next challenge is in November, so make sure to check it out!
In the meantime, you can keep up with The Digit-al Dozen in the following ways:
And I also want to thank all of you for continuing to support this blog! These developments wouldn't be possible without you. :)
