What is Blog Every Day in May?
Blog Every Day in May is a blogging challenge where you will attempt to write and publish a blog post every day for the entire month of May. It’s as simple as that.
I will be setting a topic for each day to help inspire you. Or you can choose your own topics. Either way, you blog, you publish, and you share on Twitter with the hashtag #BEDM where you will find loads of awesome new blogs to read.
The project happens every six months and we’ve had brilliant participation over the past year. It’s so much fun to take part in.

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. So just keep going!
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 BEDM-ers?
