How Do I Join The One Room Challenge™?

Hello, and Happy October! Happy New Year to all those who celebrate. I can't believe the ORC starts this week. Can you? This Wednesday, October 5th, all twenty of the featured design bloggers will reveal their room plans. Fun fact: I am seeing most of the plans for the first time, too. Does that surprise you?

For me, the biggest surprise is on Thursdays, when everyone is welcome to join in and play along. I have no idea who will be taking the challenge and transforming a space. Some of you will be joining for the first time, while others have several successful rounds to your credit. I would like to offer a quick review for those whom have asked:

You have six Thursday posts to complete your room transformation. If you want to be precise, it is actually five weeks......unless you have already started....and that's OK! Each Thursday, after you have published your room transformation update, come to this site and link up your progress (a direct link to your post is best). Please don't email me and ask what time it goes live. It's some time after midnight...and that's all I'm sharing.

Many viewers will visit you on a day other than Thursday (weekend traffic is the highest). By placing the One room Challenge Guest Participant logo on your site, and linking the logo to your room, you will be able to help guide the viewers to your One Room Challenge™ project. 

The Rules:

1. Only link up rooms dedicated to the One Room Challenge. The purpose of this event is to support one another in finishing a room. 

2. Your post should include information about your space and a link back to the ORC link-up page so the readers can easily navigate through the other rooms. 

3. Please be respectful of this interior design event and only have links that relate to your One Room Challenge space. Guiding the viewers away from this event is not in the spirit of the ORC and won't be permitted. 

Two great offers from ORC sponsors!

I think that's everything. If you still have questions, please leave them in the comments and I will reply for everyone to see. The One Room Challenge™ has its own Instagram account, so be sure to follow. And remember to use #oneroomchallenge so we can support one another.
