It’s no secret that I’m not the most consistent blog writer. I’ve done a wee bit better the past several months, but I’m definitely more of a “blog when the mood strikes” type of gal rather than a “blog every day about all kinds of interesting things” type of gal. And that’s OK. If I tried to write every day most of my posts I’m sure would be full of semi-coherent rambles, such as this one.
Every once in a while though I challenge myself to write every day for a period of time (usually a month), but so far I have not been able to fully accomplish it. Last November was the closest I have come when I wrote 16 thankful posts. Not bad for me.
I like the idea of writing about one thing for a month straight. The problem is (other than actually sitting down to write every day for a month straight) is finding a topic I have that much to talk about. I don’t consider myself an expert at anything so there’s that too.
But I’ve decided to give it another shot.
Maybe I’m not an expert at any one thing, but I sure don’t mind learning new things or taking something I know a little about and furthering my knowledge on the subject. So in October I’m planning to join The Nester as she hosts the 31 Days series. Last year there were over 1200 bloggers who joined in sharing their knowledge, tips, encouragement, etc. on a wide variety of subjects. I thought about trying last year, but I was knee-deep in Chemistry last fall and didn’t think that would make for the most thrilling topic to write about. You’re welcome.
I haven’t quite decided on my topic yet, but I think I’m close to nailing it down. I’ve got one BIG idea that I’m sure will prove to be a bit much, but I’ve got a couple smaller ideas too. So I’ll be writing some things out and brainstorming over the next couple of weeks to see what topic I can pull off writing about every day for a month. We’ll see what happens!
If you like the idea of writing for 31 days on one thing, but you’re not quite sure what to write about Teri Lynne Underwood wrote a great post yesterday with 31 Ideas for 31 Days Series. She listed a lot of fun ideas. Maybe you can tackle one of them yourself.
Have you ever written for 31 days straight on one topic? Do you have any 31 Days favorites from past years?
