Blog Every Day in May

Are you a Blogger? Do you ever suffer from Writer’s Block? Do you sometimes get into a bit of a Blog Rut? Do you need to freshen up your Blog with new content? Well, you might just want to get involved with my Blog Every Day in May challenge. For one whole month, every single day I will give you a new topic for you to blog about. Yep, that is 31 days worth of blog posts. Phew! That sounds like a lot, eh? But it’s totally do-able.

Why?

I have had many a conversation on twitter with fellow Bloggers talking about ruts and blocks. And after doing the Vlog Every Day in April project with Savvy Sexy Social, I decided to do something similar with Blogging. You see, one of the things I most enjoyed about the vlogging is that I really got to know people through their videos. Talking about just the simplest of topics could really reveal a lot about that person. And in my experience readers really respond to personality in a blog.

How?

If you want to get involved all you have to do is sign up below so we can all follow one another and encourage each other through this Blogging challenge. Then just save the calendar of topics to your Google Calendar and you’re all set for May. Sounds simple? Well, it is. Yep.

Topics?

There are 31 different topics assigned to each day of May. You can interpret them however you like, maybe with some writing, maybe with a photo or maybe even a video? You could throw together a collage, draw an illustration or write one sentence. You can even throw the topic out of the window and blog about whatever you fancy that day. The point is to get your creative juices flowing and start sharing with your readers.

awesome. I still have my 16 year old email address floating about too, ha!

For some reason it’s not automatically populating the spreadsheet. hmmm… Sorry, I’ll try and work out why.

Great idea- I’ve just got back into blogging and started a new blog so committing to this will keep me right on track with getting used to posting again! :)

Been very lazy with blogging so this will hopefully kickstart me! Quick question, I’m possibly being an idiot but should there be stuff in the calendar yet, it’s just showing as blank to me

Elizabeth April 25, 2013 at 11:37 am

Hi!
Yes it should be showing topics from 1st May. Are you viewing via phone or laptop?

Have tried viewing on my desktop at work and on my phone. Calendar appears in my calender list but nothing in it?!

Elizabeth April 25, 2013 at 1:13 pm

Ooh, that’s not right. I’ll have a look again at the settings and get it fixed. Thanks for letting me know.

This is really exciting! I tried my own blog challenge to blog every day in February, but I ran out of steam. I hope the daily topics will keep me motivated! I’m also not seeing anything in the calendar and I’m at my desktop….

Beth @plasticrosaries April 25, 2013 at 2:57 pm

So excited for this – can’t see topics either though via my phone or laptop (using Chrome on laptop if that matters?)

I have just signed up and am looking forward to the challenge as my blog is still very new I cant see the topics on the calender but I will keep checking back so not too worry……Its a great idea!

Elizabeth April 25, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Hey everyone! Sorry, there appears to be a glitch on the calendar. I’ll get it fixed tonight when I’m back on a computer.
Check back tomorrow for the topics and it should be there.
Have a great afternoon!

Great idea! I am just starting again with my blog…didn’t get very far the first time! I think this is just the thing to help me come up with new ideas and improve my blogging confidence. Thanks.

Thinking about the blogging challenge – it’s a great concept. However, in the meantime, I love your header font! Creampuff FTW!

(You’ll see my logo and your header have similar taste!)

whoop for Creampuff!

Louisa April 26, 2013 at 2:54 pm

What a good idea! And some really interesting topics – I’ve already started thinking about what to write and photograph…

I’m only just starting out into blogging; I’m really enjoying it so far and hopefully this challenge will help me on my way :-) x

I’m loving the look of this! I post about 3-4 times a week as it is, so I think I’ll use your prompts to fill in those extra days… This way it’ll take me longer than one month to get through them all, but maybe I’ll manage to blog every day for May AND June :)

Very excited to get started….love the look of the topics, and great to see a few things in there that I’ve been wanting to write about for ages anyway!

Good luck everyone!

Looking forward to challenge still having trouble viewing calendar. Can you post a list if possible… It’s not allowing me to see the subject detail
Thanks

Elizabeth April 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm

Hey Teresa,
Are you clicking on the actual topic in the calendar? It should bring up a box with the topic description along with the option to view more details and to save the calendar?

Chloe April 30, 2013 at 1:43 pm

This is a great idea I have just signed up :)

This is exactly what I need. I love all the topics and all the other blogs on the list, most of them are new to me so will love writing my posts and reading everyone else too. I have been blogging over a year and love it. In recent months my beloved blog has been some what neglected so now I have the motivation I need. Good Luck y’all !! :)

Kate April 30, 2013 at 4:07 pm

New follower! I would love to do this challenge! I just finished the A-Z though and am worried I would lag! I will be following along with you though as I added you to Bloglovin!

Oh I wish I could do this. In fact I was a click away from signing up but May ’13 is the last month of my degree and I really shouldn’t. I’m going to be following all of you and definitely giving this a go next time!

Reply

Ana April 30, 2013 at 8:28 pm

This will be fun. I’m trying to really challenge myself with a few challenges at once so I hope I don’t fall flat on my face. I’m going to try and use the topics to match the theme of love and relationships on my blog.

Hi Elizabeth!
I love this idea; found it first on Chars’ blog and then on Tcakes.
I made a reference about it on my blog and Char commented that I should give it a go!
A couple of days late, but here all the same…with 2 posts done, totally unrelated to your calendar!!

Hi! I just wanted to say thanks for setting this up! I totally fell off track and was a little snarky about the exercise, but I sincerely want to thank you for putting it out there. You did a great job putting this together! I got my best friend to do it, too, and she took it much more seriously than I did.
