Hope Writers – Instagram Writing Challenge May 09-13

This is a shout out to writers and authors. Finding space in our day to invest in writing is difficult, hard, and sometimes exhausting.

But there is a way to create a regular rhythm that leads to a writing habit. And I mean, writing non-stop, becoming unstoppable.

And there is a way to add accountability and make writing enjoyable too. That’s writing with others.

I want to invite you to join me for the Hope Writers – Instagram Writing Challenge that’s happening this week, May 09 through May 13.

Now, this 5-day challenge is free and it’s so much fun, hundreds of writers and authors will unite each day just to write freely, without the pressure of writing for an audience.

Every day, the Hope Writers team will assign a writing prompt. It only takes a few minutes to write an Instagram caption and you’ll be able to clear the brain fog, discover your writing voice, find unparallel confidence in sharing your words, and collaborate with like-minded writers in a live event.

Let’s take this challenge together.

    Online polls are getting popular in social media as companies are trying to engage with their audience.It is an alternative format of content that if used correctly can entertain fans and followers.

    If you have a website , a facebook fan page or a twitter account you can create polls with the help of online applications in order to get in touch with your audience in a friendly way.


    One of those beautiful apps is Riddle




    Website: Riddle


    It is a website where you can create interactive social content for your campaigns in minutes.Quizzes , polls , lists , surveys can be very daunting if you go alone.


    How Riddle Works


    The process is very simple.When you enter the Riddle website you select the type of desired poll and choose from templates or you create a new one.

    There are a few easy to follow steps in order to get your poll done

    List – All time best .. 10 reasons why .. Everybody’s love a good list

    I chose to create one poll from scratch. There is an option to add any media I want

      • Search images in Google or Getty (be aware to use only images you have the right to do so).If you are unsure what to do I refer you to my article on Royalty Free Images.



    • Insert videos from YouTube



    • Upload images from your computer



    • Select from the Riddle stock images (beautiful photos on various themes and topics)


      • Photos from your Facebook account



                • Article link (you can insert any link from the web or your own)


    I took one of their stock images for my intro description , add 3 items , uploaded 3 images from my computer , inserted link for each item back to my website’s reviews. Then I changed the main colour and my result is

    Which one is your favourite image creation (editing) app?

    Here is a short list of 3 photo editing / creation apps.You have the option to choose only one.
    The results will be announced on Web Market Support on Wednesday.

    Thank you for taking the time to participate.

    • Effects (original , clyde , avenue , haas , arizona and more…)
    • Crop
    • Draw (colour picker , eraser , brush)
    • Text

    Applied an “Avenue” effect , added a text saying “Are you Ready?” and the result is



    How much do you know about creating viral content?

    A quiz measures how much someone knows about a subject. Quizzes can be really difficult and test people’s knowledge of a subject or you can use it to show off your own skills!
    At the end the user gets a result type that shows how well they did. This is what people like to share.
    You can use this quiz as a starting template or write your own.

    Do people love to share fun quizzes?



    Do you have to be very clever to write quizzes?



    Viral content novice

    You didn’t score as well as the experts but this means you can only get better! Practise makes perfect so just get stuck in and give it a go. You’ve got to be in it to win it!
    [You can use this space to write some funny content to encourage people to share their result. You can also add in links like the one below or choose (in the Customise menu) to show a form that collects user information so you can build an email list etc.]

    [You can use this space to write some funny content to encourage people to share their result. You can also add in links like the one below or choose (in the Customise menu) to show a form that collects user information so you can build an email list etc.]

    Personality – A fun little test to determine people’s natural biases

    The template here is awesome so I kept all their settings.The poll is ready , do not worry about the text.I just did not change it

    What type of viral content writer are you?

    This example test shows how to write a personality test that creates a fun experience for the user so they will share it and spread your business message.
    The three possible results types for this test are ‘writing to make money’, ‘writing for fun’ and ‘writing to educate’. You can use this as a template to create your own tests or you can view the full version of the test here.


    You write viral content to make money

    You have an entrepreneurial streak and like to use your creativity to try new things. You back yourself and are not afraid to put yourself out there. You probably write viral content in order to find new customers.


    You write viral content to educate

    You are a true people-person and get pleasure from helping people understand more about your specialist subject. You emphasise well with others and you’re always willing to lend someone a hand. You probably use viral content to add to people’s knowledge in a fun way.


    How do you come up with your ideas for new content?

    I research current hot topics (this answers scores for educate) I see what my competitors are up to (this answer scores for money) Over a glass of something at my favorite bar (this scores for fun)

    Do you have a web site with lots of traffic?

    Yes I have loads of traffic! (money) I have a web site but don’t have loads of traffic (educate) I don’t have a web site (fun)


    Survey – Ask your users their opinions about anything

    As with the previous type I left everything untouched.



    The viral content tools survey

    You can introduce what subject you want to cover here and also offer give-aways or prizes to encourage people to answer your survey.
    In your questions you can ask:
    1. The user to choose one option
    2. The user to choose as many options as they like
    3. The user to type in their answer – great for feedback or suggestions.

    Which type of viral content looks most interesting to you / your business?

    Final Words


    I am more than satisfied with Riddle.The app is fast , easy to use and the outlook is professional.There are templates to choose from and ready stock images.What I loved most is the superb UX (user experience) , I felt like home immediately.But you have to test it on your own to understand.


    The Free membership is a goldmine itself if you are OK with Riddle logo on your polls.

    The Pro accounts are way better but the business plan seems expensive.Of course it is ideal for big companies or organisations that run surveys and polls quite often.

    For bloggers I recommend to check the Free version and then if you want you can jump to the Starter or Pro account.


    I can’t wait for more types of polls inside Riddle.


    Other Design Tools that I Use


    I hope you will enjoy Riddle as much as I do.I am waiting for your comments and thoughts.Are you using polls for your campaigns yet?..What other app would you suggest for that matter?…Till next time , your online partner.

    1. Lee

      So that’s how you do it! I’ve got to say I’ve been trying to find a professional way to create an online poll for a while now and Riddle looks like the answer.

      I help local business owners to build an online presence and I’ve been wanting to create a poll or survey to ask my followers questions so I can get a better understanding of where they are at with there advertising efforts.

      Many thanks.

      • Tasos

        Welcome Lee , yes , you should proceed with that survey , it is a great idea.To gather their answers and have a better understanding on their progress.I believe you won’t get disappointed by Riddle.They are doing a good job with their application.

        Thank you for visiting my blog and for expressing your thoughts here.Good luck with your clients.

    2. Brok

      Wow this looks like an awesome site to create polls.

      Looks like there’s a lot of features and you can really customize your poll.

      I was wondering, in your opinion which membership level is the best value? I was thinking starter would work for me, but am I right when I say you can’t add your own logo with this account?

      Thanks for the review


      • Tasos

        Welcome back Brok , I am glad you liked their application.The starter membership is just fine , go on and use it with no limits (as concerns how many you will create) to test it for as long as you like.

        You can add your own logo even with the free account.You can insert it in an image.But their logo will be present as well.If you are OK with that you can proceed.I am OK , besides the total outlook is professional and people don’t know exactly why “Riddle” name is being shown up.

        Thank you for this visit and for taking the time to participate in the comments.Good luck with your polls.

    3. Divican

      I thin and you may agree with me that will not be cheap for a new website. This one can be for a website that has a good traffic and of course which makes money. You know these staffs are not for free at all and as you have said after 14 days you have to pay. I used to use such staffs for some of my websites but I learn t your website have to have good traffic before using them.
      Sorry if I have made any mistakes for but that is it

      • Tasos

        Welcome Divican , Riddle offers a free membership that you can take advantage and there is no limit on the number of polls you will be creating.If you don’t have a problem with their logo you can use this free account for as long as you like , unless something changes in the future.

        Additionally you can publish these polls on social media and not on your website if you think you have low traffic.

        Thank you for this visit and for taking the time to discuss your concerns with me.Good luck with these polls.

    4. braxa0103@gmail.com

      This is an excellent post.

      As someone who uses surveys quite frequently to determine the needs and irrational desires of prospective customers in my niche, I think the use of online polls in this way could even prove to be more effective.

      I have never heard of Riddle before but I am going to look into how I can use Riddle to get to understand the needs of my prospective customers better.

      Great post.

      • Tasos

        Welcome Braxa , I am so glad you found this resource useful.Polls and surveys are great ways to understand the behaviour of customers and visitors.With Riddle you can use both.

        I hope you enjoy their services as much as I do.Thank you for this visit and for stating your experience here , good luck.

    5. Tim

      Hi Tasos,

      This is actually very cool. I think this is something that could be integrated into your blog as a way to gain useful market research data.

      Perhaps as a way to really understand what is on the mind of your visitors… not sure if this is exactly what you are recommending but makes sense to me. Thanks for sharing

      • Tasos

        Welcome Tim , exactly as you say.You can use them as a resource of statistical data , to understand their needs but most importantly to interact with them.This is what makes a brand stand out of the competition.To get in touch with the visitors.

        Just like the offline world , for example I always visit places where I feel comfortable and I have the chance to talk with the owners or the personnel.I don’t like when I visit companies that no one talks to you or they don’t care.I never revisit them.

        I am glad you find it interesting , I wish you good luck and thank you for taking the time to participate in the discussion.

    6. Erin

      I have never thought about adding polls, quizzes, surveys, etc, but this could be amazing. I say this because polls, quizzes and surveys are everywhere now! I can see how you could encourage comments or base polls or surveys off your content which could lead to more content..Is there something you use more than something else? Say polls over surveys? Do you have a Pro Membership and do you feel that polls, surveys, etc are something that you will utilize for a long time or do they seem a bit faddish? Thanks for this great info!

      • Tasos

        Welcome Erin , I am so glad you liked the idea of polls and I highly recommend that you start using them.Like you , I am just starting in this area , I never used a poll before.But I understand their overall value.

        Visitors and customers need to interact with the companies.Just like the offline world.When you enter a shop to buy clothes you want to discuss with the salesperson and not just grab the clothe , pay and leave.

        I believe every kind of this content is useful , as long as you keep it short and straight to the point.Because we don’t want to overwhelm our visitors with many questions that will point them to abandon the project.

        I do not have a Pro membership in Riddle yet , as I just getting this kind of content into play.If I get good results I will definitely go for the paid version , as a professional approach.

        Thank you for this kind visit and for sharing your thoughts here.Good luck.

    7. Karissa

      I enjoyed your website. I had no idea there was an app to create a poll. Then again there is an app for everything these days.

      However, I guess I have never seen the need for a poll until I read your post.

      I also enjoyed all of the sites you listed on your other post about the different types of places you can get free pictures from. I usually just use one site but I need more.

      Thanks for sharing!

      • Tasos

        Welcome Karissa , you are very kind.Yes , there is an app for everything these days , that is why I am falling in “deep love” with the web.

        Polls are a fun way to get in touch with your fans or visitors.You interact with them , they participate showing their interests and that makes them feel comfortable.Now they are not only customers , they are friends that discuss and talk with an entrepreneur or a company.Additionally you can extract useful statistical data of their behaviour.

        I am very glad you liked the idea of polls and the resources on the free stock sites.And these are only a handful of what is out there.

        Thank you for this visit and for supporting my work.Good luck.
