Lately I have been feeling like I haven’t been dedicated to this space like I want to be. It’s one of my favorite hobbies, yet I’m not making time in my day to post something. Honestly, I don’t know if I should even be doing this because blogging every day for a month? It’s a really big commitment. It will certainly get me back into the swing of one of my passions though. But like weekends too? Plus it’s not a 28 day month…it’s a 31 day month! I mean…
My friend Jenni did this last year though and I was so impressed that she was able to post something every day so I’m ready to give a shot. I feel like when you don’t have to stage everything and don’t have to feel like every post and every picture has to be perfect, you get back to the root of blogging. Because that’s really what it’s about right? Real life. The real life writing and the real life pictures. The pretty and the not so pretty, the edited and the not so edited. Bloggers feel a lot of pressure to sometimes be something they’re not because of this big ole blog world. It’s nice to take a step back and just write with our heart instead of with so many of our filters on.
That’s what this is all about. I’m challenging you to blog every day in May for the whole month with me. Are you feeling up for it? I’ve even created all the topics for us so you don’t have to think about what to write every day. That’s half the battle right there for bloggers. So. There you have it. Will you join me?
Here’s a few rules (more like guidelines):
- The first rule is there are no rules. If you miss a day you can skip it or make it up if you want. I’ll still be friends with you.
- I’ll be posting a linkup on the bottom of each post every day so feel free to link up and check out other links to make new friends!
- You can still post other things on your blog too. I’m sure I’ll do some of my regular posting in addition to the topics every day (at least that’s what I think right now).
- It would be awesome if you all added the “Blog Every Day in May” button on your posts or sidebar of your blog. That way we can all see who is participating and make new friends along the way. You don’t have to if you choose not to but it would be prettttty nice of ya.
