I think most of them are fine.  A few of them are of the "I must post today but I am tired/sick/brain dead" variety but those are ok, too, because we are human and that just makes us seem more so.

I would hope that all blogs are good content blogs, but as we approach deadlines, the answer might not be what you want to hear.

One thing I do like to add, the 30 in 30 day blog challenge got me into the path of consistent blogging. And I would like to believe toward being a better blogger.

I am not sure either. I do think it increases the quantity because of the points. It seems I have seen a lot of posts about not knowing what to write about. Maybe they were there all along and I just didn't notice.

I agree with Debbie that it is both and totally depends on the author.  I might have one or two frivilous post in a 30 for 30 contests, but I write a lot of personal posts anytime and have attracted some buyers that way.  But I also see a LOT of junk posts during these contests too.

I think they do both.  But, I will say that overall, they help many develop the habit which in turn leads to more good posts. - Debbie

The challenges do encourage some poor blogs. On the other hand, most of them are fine.

Sadly, I think it generates more junk.  I know I tossed a few out there since I was so far along in the challenge and had no mental energy to come up with a decent post.

The 30 in 30 is a good contest and should not produce junk posts but the 20 a week did produce all kinds of posts.

Debbie Reynolds , I'm not sure it makes much of a difference.  And, one persons garbage blog may be another's treasure.

I guess I havent read most of the posts from the contests. There seems to be a lot of junk blogs in general. I participated in one 30 posts per month contest, I didn't write junk, but I did write blogs outside my usual subject content.

Debbie,

It depends on the individual.  Do they value how they sell themselves?  If they do, the blogs will have quality.  If not, then the answer is obvious.  A

I think if a person always posted junk or listings, they kept the same type going. A few might have been "weak" but overall I think most were cute, informative or just fun. All good for different reasons.
