Blog Everyday in May

I cannot believe that I am going to do this. But I am. I am going to participate in another blogging challenge. This challenge is being hosted by Jenni at Story of my Life. I don't know Jenni or any of those who follow her. But I do like challenges. And I like to find new blogs to read. And she has posed an interesting group of questions. So here I go....

Here are the rules:

1. There really aren't any rules. If you miss a day, you can make it up or skip it. The blog police will not come knocking.

2. I will be including a linkup option at the bottom of my post each day, so you are welcome to leave your links here for others to peruse, as well. 

3. You can still post other things every day, too. I plan to do normal outfit posts, life posts, around-Austin posts, and sponsor posts just like usual.

4. I'd seriously love you if you also include the "blog every day in May" button (below) either on your sidebar or at the end of your posts, but again, the blog police will not come knocking. My main goal here is to get us all back to the basics of blogging, not to gain a million new readers (though I wouldn't mind that). 

5. Here are the topics. You can be as creative and awesome or as boring and bland as you like with these. Take 'em and run with it. Use creative post titles. Interpret each "prompt" however you like. There's no wrong way to do it. Have fun.

Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable
Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member
Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of
Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)
Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill. 
Day 11, Saturday: Sell yourself in 10 words or less
Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)
Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
Day 14, Tuesday: Ten things that make you really happy
Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day - this could be "a photo an hour" if you'd like)
Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why
Day 18, Saturday: Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt.
Day 19, Sunday: Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them
Day 20, Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
Day 21, Tuesday: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives
Day 22, Wednesday: Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
Day 23, Thursday: Things you've learned that school won't teach you
Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits
Day 25, Saturday: Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.
Day 27, Monday: A letter to your readers
Day 28, Tuesday: Only pictures
Day 29, Wednesday: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post
Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go
Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory


  1. Good God, seriously!? Another month? I think I'll take 11 months to recover from this one :P

    Have added you to my blogroll so obviously, this is not the end, my friend :)

    Good luck!

    1. I know! I said the same thing to myself. I did the blogging challenge in March. And then A to Z in April. Now this in May. Believe me I don't have a lot to do most of the time. Just sit and watch the husband sleep!

  2. hmmm I guess since I dint get to participate in the A-Z challenge, maybe I should do this....but again, should I? lol

  3. Should I??? Thinking...thinking.....!!! As there's no strict rule, I guess i'll do it... but as Nina asked... should I??

  4. Yay! I am going to do this one. I am glad I took April off though. I can't wait to see your posts. :)

  5. thanks for digging this one up, Paula. I really enjoyed March, so I think I'll jump on the bandwagon for this one too--I'm finding I blog a lot more when I'm prompted...

    1. Me too Lisa! I am looking forward to it! I have already started preparing some of mine

  6. I'm in, too! It will be especially fun with you, Cristy, and BossNurse!

    1. I can't wait. If nothing else all of us will have a blast!

  7. Ok Paula, I'm in too! I figure if nothing else, it'll be fun following along with you guys. :-)

    1. I am excited that you are all going to join me!


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
