Back in May this year I set a challenge to blog every day for the month. It was just a little idea I had to boost creativity and help my fellows Bloggers get out of ruts, get inspired or just get blogging. It was so much bigger than I had anticipated it to be with over 200 Bloggers signing up for the challenge. When is the next one everyone asked? Well, six months on we are now gearing up for our next blogging challenge, Blog Every Day in November.
Every day in the month of November I aim to blog every single day. That is 30 whole posts. Yep. Quite the challenge. And I’m inviting anyone else who has a blog to join me in the challenge.
So if you fancy some blogging fun, or you’re stuck in a blogging rut, or you’re looking for some blogging inspiration, this is the place for you, my friend!

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can’t blog every day?
This is meant to be a fun challenge so don’t stress if you miss a day. It’s the taking part that counts. The aim is to blog every day so just try your best!
What if the topic isn’t suitable for my blog?
The topics are totally optional, they are meant to serve as a guide. If you have something else totally rad to write about instead, do that. The main aim is to blog every day, not necessarily follow the topic calendar.
How shall I interpret the topic?
Try to be creative and use the topics as a springboard. Think of alternative ways to blog such as photo diaries, lists, poems, video blogs, mind maps, illustrations.
Oh-em-gee … this blog post isn’t perfect, I’m too scared to publish it!
This is more of a statement than a question, but was repeated plenty last time. I say publish away. I’ve sometimes been surprised by the response to some of my less favourite blog posts in the past. You never know, so just get the posts out there. The more you blog, the better it will be.
Hey! I can’t see the full topic details on the Google calendar?!
You need to hover or click on the topic to reveal the rest of the topic title and the prompts. I recommend saving the calendar to your own Google calendar so you can visit it easily every day.
How can I find fellow BEDN-ers?
Check out the google docs spreadsheet above with all of the participants listed there. To find them on Twitter check out the BEDN twitter list I have set up. And follow the #BEDN hashtag for the conversation.
