blog every day in november

 

I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already since our last challenge but here we are again. It’s time for Blog Every Day in November, a challenge to get ourselves out of a blog rut, boost our creativity, engage with our audience and all round have fun with our blogs.

If you are a blogger and you would like to get involved do read on.

What is Blog Every Day in November (#BEDN)?

Blog Every Day in November is a blogging challenge for you to write and publish a blog post every day for the entire month of November. 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 #BEDN. There you will find loads of awesome new blogs to read and a community of other likeminded bloggers.

I started this project simply for a bit of fun and a way to connect with other bloggers. It came from a few conversations on Twitter where quite a few of my blogger friends were stuck in a bit of a rut. After some thought I decided that a blog every day challenge would be a fantastic way to get creative with the support of other bloggers.

Since May 2013 hundreds of bloggers from all over the world have taken part in #BEDN (and #BEDM – we do it every May and November). They create fantastic content, found a new blogging community and grown their readership. It’s been an awesome thing to be a part of.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I can’t blog every day?

This is meant to be a fun challenge so don’t stress or worry 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…you could even try a podcast.

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 least 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 and follow the #BEDN hashtag on Twitter for the conversation.

      Yes, the topics are all there on the calendar above it’s just still showing October at the moment. You should be able to scroll to the next month though to see them. 🙂

        Hi Elizabeth,

        I’ve saved the google calendar but can’t see any of the topics? Have I done something wrong?

    I think I would like to take part, but I’m not sure how I will fit it with my usual topics, as I tend to write often anyway. I’ll have to think about it.

      Hey Anca!
      Would be great to have you on board. You don’t need to follow the topics at all, just taking part in the challenge to blog every day would count. 🙂

    This sounds like fun! The Google Calendar topics is an interesting idea, but will you also be listing them out somewhere for an easier reference?
