A change in programming

31 Jul

storyadayaugWell, tomorrow starts a month of major transitions as the actual relocation from England to the US looms large. I know for sure I will not have internet access for at least a week during August, and am not certain how much time or energy I’ll have on the days when I do have a connection, so I wanted to be sure I ended July with a plan to keep posting every day. Thanks to WordPress’ feature that allows me to draft and schedule posts in advance, and a 31-day daily blogging challenge originally hosted in May by Jenni on Story of My LifeI’ve got August covered. I hope that I can find some time to throw in some fiction and/or photography posts during the month, but I don’t want to make promises I can’t keep, so we’ll all just have to wait and see what happens.

In the meantime, here’s the rundown of what you can expect to see in the next 31 days…

  • Day 1: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph… no one will be counting your words… probably)
  • Day 2: Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at. Take any approach you’d like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
  • Day 3: Things that make you uncomfortable
  • Day 4: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
  • Day 5: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don’t have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member
  • Day 6: If you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’?
  • Day 7: The thing(s) you’re most afraid of
  • Day 8: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
  • Day 9: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)
  • Day 10: Most embarrassing moment(s). Spill.
  • Day 11: Sell yourself in 10 words or less
  • Day 12: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)
  • Day 13: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
  • Day 14: Ten things that make you really happy
  • Day 15: A day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day – this could be “a photo an hour” if you’d like)
  • Day 16: Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it
  • Day 17: A favorite photo of yourself and why
  • Day 18: Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt.
  • Day 19: Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them.
  • Day 20: Get real. Share something you’re struggling with right now.
  • Day 21: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives.
  • Day 22: Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
  • Day 23: Things you’ve learned that school won’t teach you
  • Day 24: Your top 3 worst traits
  • Day 25: Something someone told you about yourself that you’ll never forget (good or bad)
  • Day 26: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you’d like.
  • Day 27: A letter to your readers
  • Day 28: Only pictures
  • Day 29: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post
  • Day 30: React to this term: Letting Go
  • Day 31: A vivid memory
