Blog Every Day In October: Blogtober14

The other day I wrote a post called "30 Different Blog Post Ideas". Looking through the list, I wondered if I could every complete all of them. And then, Taylor presented a challenge and I knew had to try: Blogtober14
Taylor approached me about blogging every day in October and when The Daily Tay wants to do something, I jump immediately on board. Yes, even if it was a cliff, or something.

I have never blogged every single day, weekends included. I've tried before, but always made an excuse to miss a day. This will be a fun way to challenge yourself to write every day. The best way to become a better writer is to keep at it. To force yourself to write as often as possible. So Taylor and I are taking the challenge and we want you to join!

We added a hashtag: #Blogtober14 so you can follow along on instagram and twitter. This will also be a great way for everyone to connect.
Each day in October we'll host a link up so you can add your link so others can find you. We also have a button you can add to your posts each day:

Helene in Between Blogtober

You can join every day or just when you like, it's up to you! You can, of course, blog about other things too. There's plenty of fun stuff in October that I'll be sharing about in addition to the prompts below.

We put together a list of daily prompts for the 31 days in October and we hope you'll join us. You have plenty of time to get your thinking cap on! You can make the prompts what you want- change them up to fit your style!

  1. I love this idea! I might have to join in and do these. I always make an excuse that I don't know what to write about, so I skip days. This challenge would take away my excuse though.

  8. Every day blogging would burn me out, but I'm an every week day blogger usually. Good list!

  9. I love the idea of #blogtober14 - I did Blogtober last year and nearly wore myself out. Plus if I had a post I wanted to do that WASNT on the list, I felt obligated to just push it to the back of my mind and stick to the list. I applaud you for your determination and can't wait to read your posts!

  10. Ooooh I love this list! Maybe. Just Maybe I'll blog every day. I used to blog 5 days a week last year. But nowadays it's too hard to do that! I've started to allow myself two or three days off. It kinda kills me, but it makes blogging more manageable. Plus I run out of ideas and panic and then throw up on a white screen so that my followers won't all suddenly unfollow me. But these prompts are so fun and creative! I will definitely do some of these and link up a couple times!
