Blog Every Day in May 2014!

Here we go!

Perhaps it's madness. Why else would I encourage myself to do more?

The simple answer is that it's good practice. It is not super easy to just type up the words and communicate a story. It's not easy to walk into a room at a party and tell stories to people you don't know. If you don't read or write anything you don't learn and grow much at all.

Writing and telling stories is good for the soul. (I might have made that up).

So in the absence of finding a blog every day in May for 2014 list, I have made up my own.

I am not even sure I will make it, but I am going to try my guts out.

If you would like to blog every day in May than feel free to use this list too. Let me know if you are giving it a try.

  1. Describe your entire day in just 100 words.
  2. A Favourite Movie

  4. Your earliest memory

  11. The one skill I have always wished to have.
  12. The house is on fire, all the family is out, and you can grab 5 more items. What are they?
  13. Describe your relationship with your phone – Honestly
  14. One of your favourite images of all time
  15. You can only choose five foods to eat for an entire year, what do you choose.
  16. The best smell in the world is…
  17. Yesterday we talked the best smell in the word, the worst smell is….
  18. You have $1million to give to just one charity, which one do you choose.

  21. Write about a journey in your life.

  23. Something that you will never write about.
  24. The last book you read
  25. You can be a fly on the wall at any time/stage of history, where do you go?

    2. Ok, I've failed already! I might have to blog nearly every day... Or, maybe just blog in May... At least once.

  5. My gosh I just posted the first day! If you are going to try your guts out so am I!

    1. only 30 to go - I will get a link up so we can all share our posts.

      Thanks for taking part in my madness. xx

  6. I am so in need of this!! Joining in today and everyday!!

    1. YES!!! Come along for Clairey's Crazy Capers.... only joking, it will be fun, I promise, we shall all eat cake at the end.

    2. First post up!! Thanks for this, I needed it to get my mind into gear. And I love cake!!!!

  7. Excellent. Thank you for joining in with me and everyone else, it's going to be fab.

  8. Wow! Your energy amazes me!!! I won't be joining you but will love reading along.
    Have fun!!!
    LOVE the list by the way.

  9. I love your list! Good luck! I will join in when I can. x

  10. This is a good list. I think I might steal stuff from your list and do something similar.

  11. Love to join in! Thanks for the inspiration

  12. Rightio - I'm totally going to do this!! Love that today's is nice and easy. Will do once the kids are in bed!! Great list, hope I can do it, will be good for my writing/time management skills! Emily :)

  13. Love the list!! I'm tempted. I just don't know if I have the time. Eeek ...

  14. Great list. Emily from Have a Laugh on Me shared and now I'm tempted... perhaps inspired. A blog a day? I only manage a few a month... I think I can. I think I can...

  15. I just wrote 100 words on topic one, but not sure how I'd go the whole month through. Seriously doubting anyone would want to read 31 days straight of me. But go girl.

  16. Good luck! I'm in the process of moving my blog over to wordpress so I won't join in as I have enough going on, but sounds great x

  17. Ok , you sucked me right in. I missed the memo about white shirt day , well done to you.

  18. Good luck Claire! There's no way I could blog everyday but will join in with a few of the prompts if that's okay. May is busy for me as I'm doing another writing course so my days will be full of lots of writing with that and completing the second draft of my novel. Looking forward to reading as many of yours and others' posts during the month though :)

  19. That's a really good list of topics to help keep up our blogging mojos! Thanks for sharing!


Commenting brings amazing luck, you must try it and see how you go!
