2023 Category Challenge

In the Category Challenge, the only rule is that there are no rules. Every member sets their own categories (as many as they want, on whatever topics they want), so every member’s challenge is going to look different. Some members use the same categories every year and change the theme. Some members put aside their challenges halfway through the year and start over. Whatever works for you!

We host optional year-long theme reads called CATs and KITs, as well as a BingoDOG. The planning of these challenges begins in October 2022. See the welcome post, the pinned posts, and the list of wikis for more details.

The challenge officially starts January 1, 2023, but you’re welcome to start earlier or later!
